The Before

This time around, my parents generously paid for the most expensive birthday gift ever (Thank youuu Mama Abah!).

Brace yourself for….

My new set of BRACES!

Heh heh heh.

(attempt to scare off potential suitors)

So fugly right????

My right upper canine has always stuck out like an oversized fang, forcing me to find the right angles whenever I camwhore for it to not look so awkward. And it’s even harder to clean after meals as food will always be stuck near those narrow spaces. So all things considered, I figured out that now is the time for me to get that perfect million dollar smile. Cewah.

My (long and painful) orthodontic journey began some 2 months back, when I had the initial check-up and X-rays at a private orthodontist clinic in my hometown. Fast forward few weeks later, I had 4 tooth extracted (which was a relatively painless procedure, contrary to popular belief) and last week I finally got those metal brackets installed.

Suffice to say, it took me away from the 2 things I do besteating and talking. Damn! Last weekend I went for lunch at Tony Roma’s with some friends, and I could only watch them binge on meat while I consumed mushroom soup with some bread. HOW TORTURING! But I’m okkkkay now, so y’all can already belanja me steaks and whatnot hehehe (Farah you still owe me a birthday treat!).

I get a lot of different reactions regarding the braces. Some said it’s kind of cute (uhuk, I BEG TO DIFFER!) but some straight up said it’s ugly (HENG, I SINCERELY HOPE YOU DIE A SPINSTER. HUH). Mind you I’m currently posted in Psychiatry, so the patients would always make fun of my braces! During interviews, they would stare at my teeth and said aloud “Eeiiii ade besi kat gigii!!!“. Itu sungguh tak kelakar ok. Kejiiiiiiiiiiiiii.

Now that I’m officialy “The Before“, promise me you guys will still love me no matter how fugly I look ok??? PROMISEEE! Check this space in 2 years time for “The After” picture LOL!
