Toothache!??

Last Friday, I suddenly woke up in the middle of the night because my tooth hurts badly. I started researching what causes toothache and found many reasons such as tooth decay, abscess tooth, gum infection, gingivitis etc. No matter what reason was it, I am afraid of going to the dentist, or worse, my tooth has to be pluck out.

So I immediately went to brush my teeth in the middle of the night hoping that it will become better. Luckily, it was better when I woke up and the pain gradually disappear on Saturday.

But hell! It came back on Sunday! I start to panic liao, and research for home remedies online and saw many people tried putting minced garlic on the affected tooth. They said garlic can kill bacteria and hence, putting minced garlic on the affected tooth will kill the bacteria that cause the infection.

So, I took a clove of garlic and popped into my mouth and chew it with the teeth at the side of my affected tooth. OMG! It was damnnnn painful and burning! After a few minutes, the burning sensation started to subside and I covered the affected tooth with the garlic for half an hour before rinsing my mouth with salt water and spit out the remaining crushed garlic in my mouth.

My mouth was super stinky with garlic smell la. I went to brush my teeth and I went to sleep. This morning when I woke up, wah, the garlic smell still there. But my tooth was no longer painful. Instead, my cheek was swollen and a small part of my tongue got the burning sensation. I think the garlic was so strong that it not only killed the bacteria, it also burnt my cheek and tongue.

Anyway, today I kept gargling salt water to reduce the swelling of my cheek. Hopefully, I will recover soon. Garlic, proven by Jiajia, that it can really kill bacteria, although it nearly killed my tongue and cheek too. Okay, powerful garlic, give it my nod of approval.

One thing to take note. We should not take excessive garlic as it might cause body odour, try to limit to one clove of raw garlic per day for adults.

My Favourite Salon: Govin Hair @ KSL City Mall

Do you have the same problem as me? Want to dye, perm, rebond or do treatment for your hair but after looking at the price of the established hair salon in Singapore you just wanna shake head and walk away from the salon.

Lucky for me, I found a good, cheaper hair salon with excellent service and experience just across the Straits! At KSL City Mall at JB!


I had gone thrice and I was very happy with my every experience there!

My first and third time there was for hair and scalp treatment and they were really good! The scalp massage was so comfortable, I literally could fell asleep while they worked on my hair! The most special experience was during the wait at the hair wash area. They provided aroma therapy there by dripping some lavender essential oil into the hot water and I nearly slept.

My second time there was to colour and cut my hair. Oh my! Their hair colour has no ammonia smell at all and I love it! Previously, whenever I colour my hair at other hair salons, the colouring has …

Mucota Omega Rebonding at Focus Hairdressing

I initially wanted to try out volume rebonding at some Korean hair salon in Singapore but the price was really expensive, around $350 for my hair length and I was told that the effect was just like soft rebonding, except that it gives the hair more volume. For my hair length, the hairstylist usually will recommend me to perm the ends to have the romantic Korean feel. But I know I will be lazy to maintain the curls. So I dropped the idea. 

I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.

I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 …

Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment at Creme Hairdressing

It has been a long time since I last did treatment and color to my hair. It's to a stage where I already cannot stand the frizziness, dryness, ugly color of my unkempt hair.



I was thinking of rebonding my hair to straighten my anyhow curl fringe and to solve the frizzy hair problem, but I was afraid that my hair will be too flat and look unnatural. I researched online and came across Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment. After some research, i realised the price of this hair treatment charged by some salon for my hair length could go up to $200+ to $300, and I definitely do not feel like spending this amount of money just for the hair treatment.

While surfing on Groupon one day, i saw this.


$108 for Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment for any hair length. I bought it immediately and arranged for an appointment. Over the phone, the hairdresser told me that the time required for this treatment is around 3 hours.

The lady who attended to me was Celine, she was from Taiwan. She was quite nice and gentle…
