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


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 )


March 2010
April 2010
Lol i don't know why, I was almost having pink braces for the whole year
This was June 2010 already!! About a year more before I can take out!
Weiqi and i! HAHAHAH that month was August, my braces were red and white matching the NDP theme!
September 2010
November 2010 (Almost there already)


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.
Me with invisalign during August 2011!
Me with Retainers!
It's actually not that obvious looking la! HAHAH

Thanks for reading ! BYE! Okay this one got photoshop. HAHA

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try!

Top 10 Cheap and Affordable Places for Students to eat in Singapore

Most of the time during lecture, my friends and I would be in class whatsapping each other in our own personal group chat discussing about what should we eat after school. (Don't bluff, I bet you done it before too). Usually, we will not be able to think of a location to settle down hence we will end up searching online. Over the entire year, my clique and I have been hopping around places to find the best spot to eat and I have successfully list up some of my top places that we usually will hang out after school. Of course, being students (if you work or not work part-time), we will always be on budget constraint and do not want to spend a lot in a meal. After months of exploration, I would like to recommend some places (you might have been too or might not) that you will probably want to visit with your friends one day! What we usually look out for: 1. Places you can sit and chit-chat for more than 1 hour 2. Pocket-friendly prices (preferably below $25, ranging from $5.50 -
