Wisdom Tooth Sucks

May 27, 2015 at 6:04 AM

It’s 5 am and I’m in SO.MUCH.PAIN.

I thought I would never have to deal with my wisdom tooth. When I was in college, my dentist told me that my bottom wisdom teeth are impacted, and also touching my nerves. She suggested that if they don’t bother me, then it’s recommended to leave them alone. If I wanted to take them out, I needed to see professional, which would mean private dentist, which would mean – EXPENSIVE COST.

She told me roughly a tooth extraction would cost about RM1.5-2k. Hell, of course, I didn’t have that much. So, decided to leave them alone.

Now it’s fricken causing me so much pain because half of it somehow broke recently, there’s a huge gaping hole exposing the nerves. I even started Googling for an emergency dentist in Perth, with little luck. This past couple of days I could barely eat, drink, gargle and today I can’t even talk properly nor sleep. Even breathing through my mouth hurts so goddamn much. The pain has spread from my bottom right jaw to my ear down to my neck. Earlier today, something was swollen inside my throat as well. Gah! This is pure torture!

Kill me. Kill me now.

Sickness All Around

Wow, my new year hasn’t been starting well at all. Nonstop chains of bad luck. I’ll write in a new post about it later but I want to talk about sickness for now.

Early last month, my outdoor cat Monyet had urinary tract infection. He went missing for 5 days but thankfully he came back. Spent RM200 on him, darn expensive specialist vet. He seems to be okay now, but I haven’t been sticking to his expensive diet so i hope his UTI won’t come back, urgh.

Last month my beloved Puteh passed away due to something – I’m assuming pneumonia or at least some infection in his lung when I thought he had a normal fever. Until now I cry when I think about him, and this regret has been consuming me – regret of not taking him to the vet when I had the chance. It might or might not have saved him, but at least I took him but I didn’t. FML. Until now there’s this huge void in my life because he’s been very close to me.

Shortly after that, my other cat Botak got sick, so did my outdoor cat Gigirl Chi. I thought Botak had normal fever. It’s been raining a lot, the weather’s been cold so fever would be common. But after 3 days he wasn’t getting better nor eating at all, I decided to take him to the vet. Didn’t want to make the same mistake like I did with Puteh. He got better 🙂 Turned out to be poisoning though. That was unexpected.

Gigirl Chi had some infection or something in her mouth, prolly her teeth. She had trouble eating, prolly was too painful to eat. Whatever she wanted / could eat, I gave her, even the expensive cat food not meant for my outdoor cats. I even bought wet cat food. Well her pain worsened until she wouldn’t eat at all and for days she was hiding in the drain. I tried my best to help her but every time I gave her food, she ran away, like she was mad at me. 🙁

And this week, for the whole week, it was my turn to have food poisoning. 🙁 Unfortunately the stomach discomfort and diarrhea didn’t go away completely after 2 days. It came back yesterday. It’s been 6 days now and my stomach still feels very uncomfortable. I could barely eat anything. Urgh.

Now I saw this at an online pet pharmacy (what, how come Malaysia don’t have one??).
The link is: http://entirelypetspharmacy.com/simplicef-200mg-per-tabs.html

According to Shepped.com and from my understanding, it’s for dogs but it says – “Simplicef can be used to treat many different types of infections such as bronchitis or pneumonia as well as ear, skin, and urinary tract infections.

Is there a similar one to cats? If there isn’t, why?? It could have helped Puteh and Monyet 🙁

My cat Ketot is suffering from bad ear infection too. Taking her to the vet next week, if my own damn sickness would go away…

Dermagist Ultimate Acne Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin & Acne Scar Review & Giveaway

June 9, 2012 at 9:27 PM

A few days ago, I received a package I’ve been anxiously waiting for. My Dermagist Ultimate Acne Clarifying System has arrived!

Dermagist Ultimate Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin & Acne Scar

After some miscommunication, I finally received the set. Since I’m an international/Malaysian blogger, I don’t get products from the US sent to me for reviews so it was a surprise that Dermagist would make that exception for me. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Based on comments from their facebook and also their testimonials, I’ve been looking forward to receiving and trying out the products since I do have some acne problems lately due to stress and I’ve been suffering with severe acne scar on my face since forever. Yes, you don’t see it in the pictures, thanks to the almighty Photoshop but I’ve been hoping for a product that could truly help. Could this be it?

At first, I thought this company was a big scam since I do receive offers in my emails which seemed legit but then they stopped replying to me or just never responded back to my emails. Some canceled their deal without even letting me know. I really despise that and piss me off to no end. But glad to say that Dermagist is not a scam, phew 🙂 The person I talked to was very nice.

So anyways. Back to the product.

Dermagist Ultimate Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin & Acne Scar

It took quite a while to arrive because if you can read on the box, there’s a ‘detained by custom’ stamped on it. But glad they safely arrived to me shortly after.

Dermagist Ultimate Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin & Acne Scar

So when I opened the box, I saw the brochure for Dermagist products, the instruction on how to use the system, the invoice and of course the products.

Dermagist Ultimate Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin & Acne Scar

I was surprised that I received the whole Dermagist Ultimate Acne Clarifying System instead of just the scar fading cream. So THANK YOU VERY MUCH again to Dermagist. You have no idea how happy I am. And I’m also happy that the products arrived in good condition.

Dermagist Ultimate Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin & Acne Scar

So here’s my set of Dermagist Ultimate Clarifying System. The set includes:

  1. Dermagist Detoxifying Cleanser with Resveratrol
  2. Dermagist Clarifying Cream with Resveratrol
  3. Dermagist Acne Scar Fading Cream with Acai Berry Extract

Resveratrol and Acai Berry are two very good ingredients that are well known. You can click on the links to find out more on the products. Basically, the cleanser and cream helps you control and clear up your acne while the scar fading cream targets the acne scar.

According to the website, the acne scar cream “targets the improvement of bumps, holes, and uneven texture of acne scars, while soothing discoloration, redness and bruising with Collaxyl®, Rosa Mosqueta, Glycolic Acid, Acai Berry, Niacinamide, Asafetida and Resveratrol“.

I have yet to see a product that actually mentions they’re targeting bumps, holes and uneven texture of acne scars. Usually it’s just for minor scars such as discoloration which is not even scar, they’re called blemishes. If you have depressed scars then you know that the chance to have even smooth skin is practically almost none. So could this product actually helps the skin textures?

As of tonight, I will be starting the system and will be monitoring for improvements for a week or so. Since I don’t have acne anymore (except blemishes) so I think I can start with the scar cream together.

I will write another review of the progress within a week or so, so be sure to come back for the result!

The Dermagist Ultimate Acne Clarifying System Set cost USD$119.99 instead of $199.97! And they do ship internationally.

MakeUpMania & Ben Nye Neutral Set Translucent Face Powder Review

February 4, 2012 at 12:38 AM

My order from MakeUpMania has arrived today!

They followed my instruction to put ‘FRAGILE‘ on it, which is good 🙂 The box arrived in perfect condition. I was scared to order at first since this is my first time ordering from them but since they have the cheapest option for shipping, I decided to gamble and order anyway.

It was surprisingly fast! The shipping cost USD$9.99 using USPS First Class International Mail and shipped from Denver, Colorado. Now from all the orders I had with amazon.om, normal standard international shipping usually would take 2 weeks. So I didn’t expect this order would come in less than a week. I have been searching for a place to buy Ben Nye Neutral Set Colorless Face Powder for a long time. I’m running out of the powder so I’ve been desperate.

This powder, to me, is THE BEST setting powder ever. If you don’t know Ben Nye, it’s a brand that focus on special effects and theatrical makeup so of course when you perform under harsh lights, you would get all sweaty. The best thing about this setting powder is that it has antiperspirant. It protects your makeup from melting when you sweat! I have had makeups on for a whole day and before I found out about this powder, my makeup would melt and become cakey and shit. Since I have oily face, it gets worse. This powder helps my makeup to stay on without melting from the sweat. It’s the best thing ever.

And this little bottle of 1.75oz or 49gm lasted me 1 1/2 years! It only cost USD$4.

I was surprised when I opened the box. They wrapped my stuff in this zebra pattern paper. It’s SO CUTE. I love it.

Amazon.com should learn how to protect items from MakeUpMania! It had 2 bubble pockets so double protection, PLUS they wrapped my powder bottle with bubble wrap so A+ on protection.

Yay finally have my face powder. I’ve been worried that I couldn’t buy one in time before mine runs out. I also ordered 24 pieces sponge wedges. It’s hard to find this wedge here. All local supermarkets and even beauty stores would carry the normal square sponge. This one has soft texture too. Love it. Both arrived in perfect condition. Overall I’m very happy with MakeUpMania and my order. Will definitely order again from them provided that they’re still in business.

The Tooth of Wisdom

September 28, 2011 at 2:31 AM

I think it’s about time I get my wisdom tooth on the right side of my mouth extracted.
But I’m scared of pain. I’m scared that it’ll damage the nerve as it’s an impacted tooth.
My dentist told me years ago that if it doesn’t bother me, I shouldn’t bother it. If I need to get it out, I’d need to be referred to the pro.

That scared the crap out of me.

One thing about going to the specialist is that, it will cost money. Don’t talk to me about government dental clinic because they don’t give a damn about your pain and all they wanna do is just extract that damn thing and be done with it. I’m still traumatized remembering mom’s teeth that she extracted when I was young. She pulled quite a few of her teeth and her gum wouldn’t stop bleeding for days. Then I saw my maid got her tooth extracted. It wouldn’t stop bleeding either! She was in so much pain.

I don’t have money to go to specialist. There’s one specialist in KL that I wanna go to. I don’t have any dental plan either that could help. This bites. Last month I found that my wisdom tooth is rotting or something. If I don’t act fast, I’m scared it will do a bigger damage to the other molar if it hasn’t already done some damage. I just need to find some time to go to KL for a checkup and see what the dentist said.
