a ForCed diEt :(

It's been two weeks now since my dentist installed my braces (brackets). It is really indeed painful! I can't eat solid foods spec. the hard ones. Right now, my best friend is congee/arrozcaldo/rice porridge. My dentist said that it will take 2-4 weeks before I get used to it. (Well, I just hope that I will lose weight)

**** (from Wikipedia)****

Dental braces (also known as orthodontic braces, or simply braces) are a device used in orthodontics to align teeth and their position with regard to a person's bite. They are often used to correct malocclusions such as underbites, overbites, cross bites and open bites, or crooked teeth and various other flaws of teeth and jaws, whether cosmetic or structural. Orthodontic braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to widen the palate or jaws or otherwise shape the teeth and jaws.

In my case, I was forced to wear once since my lower set of teeth started to drift apart. It started with a missing tooth and now, some started to move. Too bad that I still need to go through this pain! Not just that, it is also expensive :( Anyway, I was informed that it will only take me 16 months for the ortho treatment. But after that, I still need to wear retainers.

I will continue to be patient I guess. Soon, I can eat what I want.

YeLLow CaB DaY!

Hubby and I always wanted Yellow Cab for a pizza. We never got saturated with the New York taste of it. We love the thin crust and the delicious toppings!

One time, we decided to try a new stuff the lady offered. It is called Charlie Chan Chicken pasta. At first glance, it is not that enticing. But we still ordered one since it is something different. Good thing that we really got satisfied. I really recommend that you try it too!

Here is how it looks :

Main ingredients : chicken, spaghetti noodles and peanuts

our fave pizza : New York's Finest

wHat Do I rEaLLy MisS?

Whenever I go online, I suddenly feel sad. I am not sure why I feel this way. Maybe I just miss some old stuff.

I used to sit in front of my pc for several hours, writing blogs, surfing, chatting and connecting to friends in different ways. Now, I seldom do it since I am working the whole day. Once I reach home, all I wanna do is to rest while watching TV or sleep right away.

I am now living a simple yet happy life. But sometimes, I can't remove some thoughts about my old life. When I was still in the call center industry, I have a lot of time going to malls, watching movie, have enough money to go shopping and buy whatever I want.

Right now, I have stopped my credit card usage. I seldom go shopping. I have trimmed down my expenses. I am earning a little. But then, am I happy? Yes, I am! In addition, I have learned a valuable thing - the value of saving. I am now spending within my limit. I may not have the capacity to buy luxurious stuff anymore, but deep inside me I am contented. I have done all those before. So now, all I wanna do is to enjoy and love what I do for a living. That is what's important right now.
