Thank you to all my lovelies for all the doas as well as the well wishes showered upon me for my dental torture yesterday ahakkks ;) Alhamdullilah all went well. My gums are a little swollen right now but I dont feel any pain and it does feel weird cos I dont have the feeling of an irritating broken tooth in my mouth any more :D
I was given 4 anesthetic shots at first and experienced head rush and shivering. My dentist, goes by Dr Henry Ang, was a very kind and gentle soul. I didnt asked where is he from....too shy lah :p I thought he is a Malaysian but he has that Filipino-American accent....maybe he's half and half. Dr Ang, to me looks like a teletubby.....hehehez. His size, his cuteness and he's soft spoken, that's why I pictured him as teletubby :p His table was filled with colourful pens, cute stickers that he used on his prescription and notes, and one or two copies of NZ Weekly Woman's magazine. Yes, he has his feminine side :ppp awwwww. He made sure that I was comfortable on the hot chair all the time and kept on asking if I was alright. Thank you Dr Ang ;)
I was given my 5th shot bcos I still could feel pain when he tried to pull my tooth out. After the 5th actually 4th shot, I was numbed from my gums to my tongue and even my left ear. My lips were pouty like those of Anita Sarawak's hehehez but I couldnt control them, it was lop sided to the left. I did feel that as if a crowbar was used to push my tooth out but all was well, no stiches required. I was bleeding for almost 5 hours last night and thought that I will feel the pain kicking in when the anesthetic got worn off but I wasn't in pain at all. All my doas and prayers to Allah were answered ;) I am blessed.
Hb did volunteer to accompany to the dentist but I decided to go my own instead. Its located in Otorohanga, a small town abt 25kms from where I live. Otorohanga is known as a Kiwiana town whereby u can find all sorts of Kiwi Icon there. The only reason why I drove all the way there bcos I get subsidised dental fee from the government for using our special Community Services Card. It only cost me $35 to get my wisdom tooth extracted.....cheap right ;) I planned to rest in the car after the ordeal but I decided not to. Thank Allah once again, the drive home for me was safe and well.

Right after I reached home, I made dinner.....chicken rice with honey glazed baked chicken, stir fried mix veggies with prawns and the chicken rice chilli of course. I didnt have dinner until abt 9.30pm. Only had 2 spoonfuls of rice with a little bit of veggies and a chicken drumstick. Now......I am so hungry!! Gonna go and eat the leftover now....hehehez ;) Gonna feast like a king........yuummmmzzz.

Saw them but can't find the other sheep.
