Dental Realizations

I visited my dentist today for I'm feeling a bit of discomfort whenever I'm biting. A little achy. Ever since,  I've always had fear on losing my teeth. I dream about it a lot. I know some may say, it's bad luck. But for me, it's just simply a frustration. I'm scared because I smoke, and as they say, it's a big chance of you losing your teeth with nicotine. Though I rarely smile and show my teeth on pictures, I still want them intact forever.

My dentist since birth Dr. Riza de Leon, (who's the best dentist ever!!!) advised me that I do not have to worry anything besides the usual dental care. And of course, the mandatory cleaning every 3 months (not 6 months!). She explains how new dental technology had evolved and new treatments/services are now readily available to save one's teeth. All you need is a big investment. No prob. *Happy* So, if us ghels invests on $3,000 handbags, why not on a dental procedure ryt?

So anyways, my dentist advised me to switch to a lighter toothbrush because I have been over-brushing. Yes I'm guilty. Ok ok. And have regular cleaning because of the nicotine. OK.

I was so delighted that somehow, I got rid of my dentures/jacket fear. I am NOT against these people wearing jackets, implants or dentures. And I don't mind if you are wearing one. It's not something I laugh about. I am just not comfortable of having one. YET.

I also remember telling my dentist to start creating a form on my existing teeth, so when the time everything falls off, we know exactly the size of my previous teeth was. She was just LOLing hard. Ok ok. This is just praning moment... nuff

But what's really weird is, people don't talk about dental esthetics at all? I mean, I don't see tweets or facebook statuses that goes, "Going to have my teeth jacket repaired today! Excited!"  OR  "Finally getting my dentures!! Yey!"   But it's OK to say, "My gawd, my hair is soo overly-damaged na and I soo need a hair repair treatment!"

Hahaha! Wala lang.. Just a thought.. For me, it's both esthetics, which deals with the nature of beauty. Same shit. :-)


Are you ready to be inspired?

Today is an exciting day, for my good friend Jujiin is having his first solo exhibit @ Trilogy tonight.

Now, what to wear? Hmmm...

See you.

Yza Calzado becomes High Profile

Working with Yza is always a breeze. No tensions. No pretensions. & No extensions. Kaya naman the shoot went well and looked good. :-) Check out High Profile magazine's editorial on ever-evolving looks of 'Pinay' since our ninuno. Char! :-)

Is Less the new Excess?

Makeup can make you look 10 years younger...or 10 years older. Makeup techniques, when used correctly, can turn back the hands before your very eyes. And sometimes even celebrities don't get it right. Check photos below to see the difference between glamorous and granny with young makeup and old makeup techniques. So, less is more nga ba?

Beau Con

BeauCon as the ghels say it (from Beauty Contest), is one of the most anticipated events in a baranggay (probably next to singing contest). This is one of my childhood frustrations, growing up in a city-vill, I never had a chance to participate or even watch in any gay pageant ever. Sometimes I wished I lived in a place like Pasay or Manila, where beau cons are being held almost every week! (Actually my cousin Alex Rada joined a beaucon when he was in college). I can still remember that he had won 1st runner up and if I'm not mistaken, Best in Swimwear (?).. :-) Aww, it's fun to play dress-up once in a while...

When Geof Gonzales' facebook was still up, I can remember him joining this beaucon in a baranggay in Manila where he lives. He was all glammed-up by Raymond Santiago and his friends. I was trying to look for the photos so I could share with you guys, pero di ko makita... So deadz.

Anyways, I was doing my normal morning facebooking/twittering when I saw this photos in facebook.

BEAU CON!!! Eyeelovvveeeet!!
