Things I’ve learnt from clinic P2

  1. Don’t try to catch anything that’s falling (i.e. the handpiece with bur)
  2. If a patient is taking a beta blocker drug, use an LA with no adrenaline (or with, idk)
  3. For blocks, be parallel to the occlusal plane to avoid aiming too high and getting the facial nerve which = bells palsy
  4. Use metal strip to remove sharp points which may shred floss
  5. Don’t tell the patient that you can’t find any calculus - just let the demonstrator tell you what a great job you’ve done.
  6. Don’t let the patient leave without their dentures.
  7. Interprox deficiency for composite can be fixed with flowable
  8. Can add powder to vitrebond liner mix if it is too thin and runs down the axial wall
  9. Finger rest when giving LA (except my fingers are too short so idk how that’s supposed to work…)
  10. Use slow speed round bur to carve anatomy into amalgam

The Spaghetti House
Saturday 19th July 2014

1. Zafferano Linguine con Scampi: saffron linguine with scampi, seafood bisque and cream $25.50
2. Vongole: baby clams, chilli, garlic, wine and parsley $19.90
3. Brocolini con Aglio e Peperoncino: broccolini tossed with garlic, chilli and olive oil $9.90

We also had the pane rustico as entree which was ciabatta with balsamic vinegar and olive oil but that was pretty disappointing. Ciabatta tastes like old dry bread. Nowhere near as good as sour dough and they have such little vinegar it just felt like I was dipping in oil.

My saffron linguini was pretty good. The sauces were quite bland but the scampi was really good =D broccolini was also very nice. We both had entree size which was a good amount but not too filling.

I like how you can book online but this place seems suited for more special occasions than everyday dining.

I painted a picture :3
(does it still count if all I did was fill in the predrawn picture?)

Boat Cruise 2014

28 March 2014

I didn’t want to write anything about this because it was bad/embarrassing experience which I don’t think I’ll forget about anytime soon. So it will be short: I drank something strong, got sick, continuously threw up, had to get off boat early, continued being sick every time I drank water and couldn’t even stand up without feeling sick. I wasn’t even drunk, just sick. Not going to be drinking anymore and I felt really bad for ruining the night. 

Le Bon Choix
Tuesday 8th July 2014

Went to Le Bon Choix for breakfast. The croissant is amaaaaaaaaazingggggg…..*drool*

Pityriasis rosea

Late March - Early April

On March 15/16/17 ish I started getting little round spots about half a centimetre in diameter around my stummy area. Then it spread everywhere starting from my front, to my back, and onto my arms and legs. 

I went to uni on a Wednesday morning for clinic but when I told the treatment coordinator I had spots that looked like chicken pox, she took me to see the health and safety officer who then took me to see a max fax. He said it was unlikely to be contagious but unless I had blood tests, they couldn’t be certain so I had to go see my GP.

My GP said it was probably pityriasis rosea which is caused by a viral infection but isn’t really contagious so didn’t require isolation. He prescribed some cream and said I would just have to wait it out for 6-8 weeks. 

In the beginning I thought I would be okay without the cream but then I started waking up in the middle of the night because it was so itchy. The corticosteroid cream helped a little and it did start to clear up eventually. 

There are no pictures because I didn’t want to take any because it was so disgusting. It spread up my neck and people kept asking me if I was okay. I looked pretty diseased and gross. ):

Milestone?
I would have taken it at 1000km but I don’t want to randomly stop on the side of the road just to do that.

Banana Pancakes

You mush a banana and mix with a beaten egg. 

Don’t make them, they taste bad ):

Like cooked, overly sweet, overly ripe banana…

There’s no picture of the actual pancake because it turned out very ugly ):

Ole Fiesta

Friday 4th July 2014

Ole Fiesta is a Mexican Restaurant in the City with 91% Urban Spoon rating. Apparently they have very authentic tasting mexican food. We went there on a date because my friend had a groupon voucher that was expiring. 

$30 for All-you-can-eat tacos and 2 glasses of Sangria. 

We had 7 tacos between us and tried all the flavours; beef, pork, chicken and refriend beans. I’m no expert on Mexican food so I can’t comment on how authentic it is, but personally I prefer the chicken chipotle taco from Salsas. I found the meat at Ole on the drier side and although the filling was nice and zesty, I don’t think I was particularly impressed. 

Sangria was probably on the nicer side of potential alcoholic drinks but I got a headache. #lightweight

The tacos are $10 each so we ate $70 worth. The drinks are usually $10 a glass. Even though it was really good value, I would still rather spend my $30 on Salsas. Here is an unflattering photo of the tacos:

Oherro long time no see. 
Have a backlog of things to blog. 
In the meantime, I found a selfie app that makes my skin looks nice :3
Also, today I made an order for a birthday present at 10-11am and received it in the arvo at 3pm. Dat shipping. Lorac Pro Palette is pretty amazing. 
My 21 is moving out because I removed my fixed retainer because it broke. I can finally floss properly but zzzzz crooked tooth. Want to wait till I graduate to do my own invisalign.
