No more silent week ^__^

Hi guys, I’m back, hahahaha Open-mouthed smile!

Phew, seminggu tak ‘berkata2’ gave me mixed feelings.

At times, I feel so glad because I don’t have to spend too much time typing ‘essays’ infront of the PC.

But other times, I feel like I need to vent out all these stories but I couldn’t because of the 1 week silence mode, hehehe…

What has happened during the past week in our lives?

Nothing much, same old same old…..

Except that The Other Half has started working at his new job which he finds a bit strange Smile.

He is still working at uni 2 days a week and then in this new corporate world 3 days a week.

After graduating, he has never worked outside of uni environment.

And then after so many years there, he finally decided to enter the corporate world on a part-time basis.

He said, “It feels so strange to have to work full on 8-5. I have to log on every 15 minutes of my time. And I can’t wear jeans and tshirt anymore to work!

Hikhikhikhikhik….

Selama2 dia kat uni, he could go out and have coffee with colleagues when he had a free time, balik cepat if takde lectures or tutorials and he’s finished all the work that needs doing, he could wear jeans to work, he got his own big office. He could also work from home when he wants to.

But, no more of that nowadays, heeeee…..

But he said that at his new workplace, they get free breakfast everyday (if you come in early), fruit basket the whole day,  a gorgeous lunch/kitchen area with Foxtel, Wii and a table-tennis table for the staff to use. A gorgeous cafe-style coffee machine to have unlimited coffee the whole day, a masseur every third Friday of the month, fancy up-market stationery (masa kat uni dulu, they got given crapola stationery, hahahaha).

So, all in all, you lose some, you win some I guess.

The impact on us?

He comes home an hour later than he usually did before. It’s still not bad because he’s still home in time for dinner Smile.

My story pulak?

I have to have 2 of my wisdom teeth extracted this coming Sunday (why a Sunday? Sebab I need someone to drive me home afterwards so Sunday aje lah yang The Other Half free to do it).

How am I supposed to be wise in my old age now if they have to come out? hikhikhikhik Smile with tongue out

Other people have their wisdom teeth out at an early age. My wisdom teeth pulak tak pernah gave me trouble until about 5 years ago on and off, once in a blue moon. Now I am sick and tired of the occasional pain, so I’ve decided to have them extracted.

Luckily lah Monday ni public holiday kat sini so if I am still sore from the surgery, bolehlah I bermanja2 dengan The Other Half suruh dia jadi my private nurse kan, hehehe.

And I still have another kilo to lose!

Bugger!

Too lazy to start calorie counting again, tu yang the weight loss is so slow. But I guess, better slow than not at all kan Winking smile (ayat penyedap hati orang2 macam I yang susah nak turun berat badan, hahahaha).

Like our dinner tonite…

I made tuna fish croquettes (or bergedil tuna) which I deep fried so obviously lah kan, the calories were sky high, hehehe. Makan pulak dengan oven-baked chips, yummmmmm Open-mouthed smile.

And the dinner we had the other night…. pun menggemukkan jugak, hehehe…

Fettucine with creamy basil and cashew pesto and pan-grilled seafood mix.

But walaupun menggemukkan, memang kenalah dengan tekak we all ni sebab even Miss 12 asked to take it for lunch the nxt day Smile.

Bestnya ofis baru TOH! Wisdom teeth I dh extracted nearly 5 years. Sbb dia keluar half je, mcm x cukup space utk keluar keseluruhan. Condition still ok but masalahnya bila mkn, makanan suka trapped kt gusi mcm pocket yg tutup half wisdom teeth tu. Jadi kadang2 infection gusi bengkak & sakit. So I rasa xnak lah simpan kalau mcm ni. I kena buat minor surgery utk itu.

Pendragon,
Hubby I ckp, dia tak sabar nak tunggu Fridays yg ada masseur tu, nyampah I dengar! hehehe.
Samalah dgn my wisdom teeth ni, half aje yg keluar so mmng makanan pun kdg2 got stuck and the gum gets infected. Tu yg I dah tak larat ni.
The dentist pun buat minor surgery but in-chair aje instead of kat hospital.

kasihredha said...

lower wisdom teeth selalu buat masalah jika x cukup space unk tumbuh...it's good decision to remove it, sebelum sakit berlanjutan.
good luck (kasi semangat sikit...hihi)

Muzel Zay said...

Missnote said...

Hurray! Welcome back with the 'suara' in the essay kak.Hehe.Tak gemuk makan semua ni.Tapi kena makan cikit2 jelah. =)

LG,
For the last 10 years my dentist suruh cabut wisdom teeth. And finally I scheduled one earlier this month. Tapi my body freaked out, terus sakit so I had to cancel my surgery. hehehe. I plan to have them removed in July, hopefully my body tak meragam lagi. Good luck with the surgery. Stock your kitchen with ice-cream, smoothies, pureed fruits, pudding, and mashed potatoes. Also, gigit moisten teabag is supposed to help with the healing too. And did I mention ice cream?

Lizzy said...

Salam..
Kalau nak ikut kan semua mengemukan..
I think, we can eat.. but moderately, tak gitu.

Faerie_Princess said...

Salam,
just nak kongsi cerita about my wisdom tooth. sudah buang kedua2 bhgn bwh 8 yrs ago, i think. punca nya, 2 months before nikah, both got infection sampai my pipi sudah jd chipmunks. so, since before this mmg off and on sakit n bengkak either one... decided to buang la kedua2 nyer sblm jd lg masa the nikah day nnti.. rosak le majlis kalau pengantin muka mcm mcm chipmunk kan :) so, all the best kak. x sakit pun lps tu. i thought berhari2 ler sakit but x sakit pun, alhamdulillah. maybe painkiller yg dentist tu bg power

Kak Kasih,
my left side atas bawah wisdom teeth yg problematic. Yg sebelah kanan ok lagi.

Muzel,
Tu lah kan, dah tua2 ni baru nak keluar. I pun rasa seram aje gak hari ni nak kena minor surgery dgn the dentist ni.

Noir,
Hahaha...I wish my wisdom is overflowing. Most of the time, I feel so unwise especially when it involves the girls.

Zarin,
hehehe....samalah mcm I sbb suddenly every week I kena iron his shirts and pants berlambak2. kalau dulu2, iron banyak2 boleh lasts berminggu2 sbb slalu pakai jeans and tshirts :-).

Haslina,
:-D

La Maman Mucci,
Salam. Wah, bestnya kat sana boleh pakai jeans and tshirt masuk ofis, memang jimat electric lah sbb tak payah iron, hehehe. Kat OZ ni, usually on Friday aje ada 'casual' day where people can wear jeans.
The problem with me, I makan banyak that fettucine tu yg tak turun2 my weight, hehehe.

Missnote,
Mana boleh makan sikit creamy fettucine, tak kick lah, hehehe ;-).

T,
Same with me, for the past 5 years I've been told to get them extracted but biasalah kan, sentiasa procrastinate, hehehe.
I have soup, ice cream, loads of milk and smoothie ingredients at the ready :-), don't you worry, hehehe

Lizzy,
I pun kinda miss tak berceloteh ni sbb memang dasar mulut murai, hahaha

Jay,
I rasa sbb the company nak staff dia rasa valued kot, tu yg they provide masseurs for the staff once every 3 weeks. It's not physically stressing but mentally stressing so sure ada lah shoulders2 yg rasa penat nak kena massage kan :-D.

blu4sky,
my dentist ni pompuan so tak boleh lah kecantikan dia buat the pain kureng, hehehe.
Hari ni I baru nak pergi cabut gigi so sgt2 hoping tak sakit sgt.

Zana,
Betul ckp you, I am really hoping to lose some weight post surgery ni sbb tak lalu makan kan. But I takut lepas dah baik, terus melantak mcm tak makan sebulan, hahaha

cinnamon,
:-)

Art Lover,
Betul tu. Last year when hubby and I were dieting and exercising, we ate everything but moderately lah and still lost a lot of weight.

Faerie_princess,
So far, my wisdom teeth tak pernah lah buat my cheeks jadi mcm chipmunks lagi but on off sakit tu adalah. Ini pun sbb dah tak larat sakit on off bertahun2, baru lah berani nak pergi cabut, hehehe.
Hopefully I pun nanti mcm you jugak lah, tak lah menanggung sakit berhari2.
