Bracie Gracie Life

Carrot Porridge

Plan of the day was to nurse my teeth at home but I received an SMS early in the morning, asking if I will be free today. I will definitely not reject a request to go out together. Well, maybe depending on who’s inviting.

So there I go, watching another movie, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, with my schoolmate/hometown mate, whom I believed needed my company as much as I needed hers. It was nice. The movie was not bad. I only had soup for lunch. Oats for breakfast and later stored up lots of soft food from Jusco. Tofu, HL milk, some packet soup (this is not good but this is for emergency use, on days with heavy traffic jam that when I come home, I don’t even have the energy to lift up a fork), Nestum satu tin and CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM.

The doctor said I could do some ice cream if it numb the pain and MAKE ME HAPPY! So far, there is no pain yet. I hope it stays that way. It’s not that I don’t feel anything. There’s this pressure pushing my teeth, especially so for my lower jaw. Those teeth, I think they are moving slowly and I don’t call that painful. My definition of pain would be those that make me cry and give me headaches that I feel like banging my head against the wall. That’s painful. So far, I’m blessed with no pain yet. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Anyway, cooked myself carrot porridge today for dinner. I’ve never eaten carrot porridge, except maybe when I was a baby. My friend that joined me for movie today had a bowl of carrot porridge too but I warned her that it may taste a little bland..or tasteless since all I did was just porridge with carrot and nothing else.

The next thing I want to try would be pumpkin porridge. Then, I’ll try to get creative from there.

One thing’s for sure. I’m forever hungry. Maybe because of the soft diet. I was shivering in the cinema because all I had was just a bowl of soup and the aircon was super cold. I don’t know if my neighbours could feel me vibrating at my seat because I sure was shivering like anything.

Need to wash the dishes and head to bed. Tomorrow onwards, I will need to brush my teeth after meal in the office. chikaboom chikaboom

Bracie Gracie Life Movies I Watch

Kung Fu Panda!

There’s no charge for awesomeness. Or attractiveness.

Kung Fu Panda

Went to watch Kung Fu Panda at Alamanda Putrajaya with 2 of my colleagues after work. Loved it! Po, the Panda is VERY COMEL and I love his expressions. VERY COMICAL. I love Master Shifu’s bushy tail. He’s a red panda by the way.

Put up at my colleague’s place as we had a late night. We went yamcha after the movies and yakked till 1:30am.

Had breakfast this morning with another colleague and then we went to Sunway Pyramid to jalan-jalan. Lucky we were there early for it was very crowded because it was a public holiday and because there was Roxy’s Summer Splash at Sunway Lagoon. I had the most delicious lunch today at Dragon-I. It was the most delicious because right after my jalan-jalan session, I visited the dentist and am now “proudly” on braces.

I look like robocop now. I can’t really close my mouth. Well, I mean, it’s closed but my mouth seems to be pouting a little because of the braces. Doctor took a picture of me before he put on the braces for me. I guess it’s for the before and after effect pictures. 🙂

I don’t know how painful it will get but so far, it is fine. There is something there hugging my teeth, it’s a bit tight but it’s not painful. Doctor gave me some painkillers, an Oral-B toothbrush designed for braces, a few interdental brushes to clean my teeth when food particles get stuck in between the braces, and a mouth rinse. Oh, and something for me to stick on my braces should I have ulcers..and the ulcers will go away.

I cannot eat one hour after I’ve put on the braces and I need to go on a soft diet, especially for the first 3 days where I’m not allowed to touch meat. And that is why I said the lunch that I had will definitely be a meal that I’m going to miss. OMG, suddenly I feel like I miss food so much.

But I will not despair. No pain no gain.

There will be some adjustment to be done to get used to my current teeth situation. I’m already starting to think of what I can eat for this whole week. Porridge I guess. Tofu. Oats. Boring I know. Haha.
