“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, the second-best time is now,” I told myself as I made an appointment with my dentist to essentially glue on metal fixtures in my mouth. Yes, I’m talking about braces. I’ve been putting it off all my life but finally decided to go through with it. At time of writing, they have pulled out 4 perfectly healthy teeth to make room for my teeth to straighten later. Pardon my Malay, but BAPAK KAU SAKIT GILA DOWH.
Being cost-conscious and all, I did research on the braces cost in Malaysia, but specifically in KL/Subang/Shah Alam area. I asked friends, family members, Twitter as well as scoured Google for answers (not that helpful tbh). In this blogpost I will share what I found out, plus the additional costs that I personally incur while getting braces.
The motivation? My (youngest) sister is getting married soon and I just want to look nice for the wedding. Vain reason? Yup. Totally. Not even gonna hide it.
I’m on the Keto diet. As in ketogenic. As in super low carb. Basically, I’m training my body to burn fat instead of sugar by eating more fat. Yup, I eat fat a lot to lose weight. At first it was hard for me to wrap my head around it, too.
