Sometimes tests, setbacks and challenges come upon you – ONE by ONE. As a mere dainty and delicate being, you can’t help but to make fuss about them once a while. I admit that I am fragile and I did slip my way from being stoic. Fresh from my bad Tonsillitis and high fever fiasco, ALLAH SWT has tested me with dental pain – in the midst of period of time where kachings matter the most!
Apparently, the weather is so unpredictable. Been raining after I was infected with Tonsillitis but turned back into sweltering scorching heat when I just got better. The effect took a toll to my tooth and I was in indescribable uneasiness and pain! It was so unbearable that I then went to a dental clinic in Rawang on Saturday as the pain started to bothering me in Friday. Arrived in Rawang around 9.30 A.M. but apparently dentist would only arrived around 10.30 A.M. so I decided to have breakfast and read newspaper while enduring the PAIN.
Around 10.30 A.M., went to the dental clinic and met the dentist. She said that the old cavity had reopened and from the X-ray she did (twice as the first attempt proved to no avail – even claimed that she would only charge me once!), seemed like the infection has all spread into the root of the tooth! For the time being, she just did tooth restoration to cover the ‘re-opened’ crack and prescribed antibiotics and prostan as painkiller to alleviate the swollen gum. The procedure took almost an hour!
The whole process entailed with RM270! Well, that’s what you got when you go to private dental clinics. A lucrative business for the dental-health practitioner, aite? The dentist also told me that she would suggest me to do “Root Canal” treatment to overcome the deeply-rooted infection and the cost is between RM1,000-RM1,500! I was flabbergasted, I have to say! But she said that if I were to do in Government hospital, probably it would be cheaper. So, I totally passed the idea of getting her hands to my teeth!
With that, it will be another regime to consume antibiotics and honestly, I don’t feel nice to mess my body with chemical stuffs! Besides, as the school is nearing its end, a lot of work to be done :-
- Marking the final exam papers;
- Completing the files for the classes;
- “Rancangan Makanan Tambahan” files;
- “PEKA” Sains files;
- Completing ADAP book (report card)
- Compiling and recollecting documents to be put in pupils’ files
* Additional work – collecting fund from Science teachers for Science Panel’s “Baju Batik” next year*. Kinda tedious to meet teachers one by one collecting money personally. It’s just very tedious.
Anyway, amidst the hullabaloos and topsy-turvy, I managed to scout for a new rent house. The journey will be documented in the upcoming entry. With dramas and upheavals.
On the recap on global news, the world has been shocked with the death of Muammar Gaddafi, the infamous Libyan leader who has been touted as a dictator by the Western world but as an Islamist fighter by some Moslems. It was reported that Gaddafi was actually caught ALIVE on 20th October 2011 but then died after that due to unknown circumstances! Some said he was beat to death, etc. Personally if you asked me, I felt that he was a dictator although he was a Moslem. His actions painted disgrace to the peaceful essence of Islam – he is one of the typical examples that smeared the sanctity of Islam; and been cited as emblem of Islam as wholly by the Western world. So sad!
As the finale part of the setback news, Marco Simoncelli, the Italian motorsport rider was killed in a horrific accident in MotoGP championship in Sepang, Malaysia. It was said that his path collided with Valentino Rossi and Colin Edwards, thus resulted him to lose his helmet. He was reported to be motionless with severe injuries at the neck, head and chest. It was indeed a tragic accident as Valentino Rossi was said to be very close to Simoncelli. Nonetheless, what was shocking and sad was the reaction by fellow Malaysian fans who threw rubbishes when the event was cancelled due to the sudden death!! They demanded they had “come from afar and invested”. Well, I am not going to elaborate on that because they have their own reasons, but it does sound a bit sad to know about that, right?
On whole, this is a time of test for me. Mentally, physically and spiritually. I pray I will be strong and won’t forlorn.
