My Braces Journey

This is an extremely OVERDUE-ed BLOGPOST. Well, I thought I'll do a proper one this time! As you guys know I used to wear braces and I am currently wearing my retainers (used to be invisalign). SO welcome to my journey of braces!

100% no photoshop for this post! In this blogpost you will see how much I have changed throughout the years (i wore braces when I was 14 ) till i'm 17 now.

Let's rewind all the way back to 2009 btw

DISCLAIMER: ALL PHOTOS ARE 100% NO PHOTOSHOP

Omgggg, look at our ugly teeth! Btw, my friend Nazia just put on braces not long ago!
If i'm not wrong that photo was taken a few days before I extracted my 4 teeth.
Elizabeth forever so pretty hahaha.
You can see my buck teeth was flipped in, very terrible state!
Getting braces was really a big deal. Just some facts to share with you guys.

Does wearing braces hurt?
Yes it does, for me it felt like my whole set of teeth had blue-black. You know what I mean right? Whatever you bite also pain. But it will only last for 2-3 days. After that you will kinda get used to the tightness and the pain. I swear I remembered I tried to eat a fish ball and it totally killed me. So usually I'll use my back teeth to chew on food. Or the best lor, eat porridge. If it still hurts, I will ask the dentist for pain killers.

Is there any food restriction?
NO. A lot of people think that if you put on braces you cannot eat biscuits, chicken wing etc. You can eat la, but it will only enhance higher chances of spoiling your braces cos hard stuff will obviously break la. Means you will delay your whole braces treatment. Try to avoid mostly.

A few months after putting a rubber like thing on my teeth, the flipped in teeth finally came out. ( Omg -.- i look terrible )

FAST FORWARD

February 2011
March 2011 ( Almost There) If you are wondering what are those rubber band attached to my braces, they are used to pull your jaw out.


18 June 2011, I took out my braces and was given invisalign!
But I broke the invisalign within 6 months, so I have to end up purchasing another one. But this time, I bought the real retainers. Although they say invisalign is much more better, but it's hard to take care too. When you brush it you need to handle it with care.

It's actually not that obvious looking la! HAHAH

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

Taipei Day 1: Ximending 西门町

Link:  http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2015/03/taipei-day-1-ximending.html

Hi guys! Okay, as you can see from the title above, I'm going to blog about my Taiwan trip I went 2 weeks ago. It was a last minute getaway trip because I was only told a week before the trip, I totally freaked out because you know my wish is to visit Taiwan and finally it has been fulfilled. So in your mind you must be wondering, 1 week only, how are you going to find a hotel and book your air tickets in time?

Thanks to http//www.expedia.sg I was able to find my accommodation plus in a good area some more! Wanted to stay at Ximending but most of the hotels there were fully booked and the only available ones at Ximending were far from the MRT station. Thanks to expedia, I was able to source out  another hotel, which is a train stop before Ximending, Taipei Main Station. In Taipei traveling is so convenient because almost every place is accessible by the MRT.
After making all the accommodation arrangements, the n…

My weight loss journey: How I lost 30kg in 1.5 years

If you followed me on my Instagram account, you may have noticed that my face has became a lot more smaller. Losing weight has always been in my new year's resolution for every year. However, that resolution would never seemed to be able to be achieved. Thus, I will bring forward to the next year instead! Haha, bet many of you guys would do that too, you are not alone! As you guys know, I am always associated with food. I admit that I am a glutton myself, I can't resist nice food and I tend to overeat most of the time. 
Before you continue reading, the purpose of me writing this post is to serve as a reminder for myself not to return to my original weight. Simultaneously, a few of my friends have also approached me to share with them some tips for losing weight. I promise to keep this post short and sweet as I also dislike reading lengthy posts! 
Before I begin, this blogpost will be filled with old photos of myself before my weight loss transformation.
