I got drenched in the last Chingay. Rainy season too this year, but I got the chance to check out the backstage instead.

Wong & Sim Dental Surgery – Teeth Whitening


I can’t kick start the day without a cup of coffee in the morning and having said that, that’s how my “gigi kuning“derived. “Gigi kuning”means yellowish teeth in Malay. Its sad how my friend kept teasing me “gigi kuning“each time he sees me.

So, this is what happened before the idea kicks in to have my set of teeth whitened. I have been wearing my permanent retainers for more than 5 years after I got my braces removed. Yup, I used to wear braces. Lazy bums like me, I’ll opt for permanent retainers, which are glued behind my teeth. One fine day, the glue decided to wear off and I got freakingly panicked having all the ‘what if’ popping in my head. I extracted four beautiful teeth for the sake of orthodontic and I must not have the pain go to waste! Being me, I’m picky in every way and that includes the dentist, which I believe everyone is. Having the service paid I don’t think anyone of us wants to be nag by the dentist for not taking good care of your oral health. My orthodontist was one and … I never see him again after I removed my braces 🙂 Anyway, having that happened to me, the only thing that struck my mind was “Hot Doc”. Haha … what “Hot Doc”? I have this blogger friend long, long time ago, and she is my only dentist friend I can remember that point of time. Without hesitation, I texted her and described to her my situation, throwing  some bimbotic questions at her (no worries, she can take it) and placed my appointment immediately. Being abroad, I need to endure the uneasiness until I return to Penang.  Wong & Sim Dental Surgery fixed it for me and all I can say is they have done a great job! They had eliminated the fear I have for dentist. 😀

Months after I decided to kiss my “gigi kuning“goodbye. Since Wong & Sim Dental Surgery has became my staple go-to dentists, hence, I am back for them to have teeth whitening done.

Took me about 2 hours of painless session to complete three cycles of whitening.

… and am super satisfied with the after effect of the teeth whitening.  photo IMG_5609_zpsxtrguqhq.jpg

TGM Japanese Korean Cuisine @ Changi Airport T2 (Departure Hall)

Being mainstream means having fast food before boarding the flight, putting into consideration if you are super late means you are left with no choice but a quick bite.

My honest opinion? Of all places I have travelled to,  I still love Singapore’s Airport, for the variety, clarity of the sign boards, tip-top cleanliness (especially the washrooms) and facilities. How can I not cast my vote for Changi Airport ?!

Having said so, Premium Plaza Group announced the official re-opening of TGM, a brand new JAKO (Japanese Korean cuisine) concept. photo IMG_4993_zpsrrpo2iye.jpg

Catering the place to travellers around the world, TGM offers free wi-fi as well as 3-pin wall plugs for diners to reconnect. Yes, two items which turns into our daily needs, wi-fi and charging spots.

I was very honoured to be welcomed this way, having a personalised menu. <3 photo IMG_4970_zps2lleu6hi.jpg photo IMG_4971_zpsnjnyfih9.jpg
