My daughter was having few problems with her teeth which the dentist could not do much about so he referred her to a specialist in one of London's best hospitals Chelsea & Westminster, luckily for Aida she was looked after by the main dentist there who as well specialises in Craniofacial and cleft lip and palate cases, so after few visits Aida got her removable brace fitted which she will have to wear constantly for 6 months minimum then she may have to get a permanent brace when she is about 12 years old.
The best thing about this lady dentist is that she basically dealt with Aida directly while I just sat there listening, Aida's opinion was taken on board plus what she wanted her teeth to look like and how she felt about it ...etc.. Aida even signed the consent form herself (I signed it too of course).
Of course as soon as Aida put the brace on we were told that she would be talking a bit funny for few days, as soon as Aida talked in the car on the way back, I couldn't help laughing, she sounded so cute and full of saliva, she felt embarrassed and kept quiet for a while which is an achievement for her since I always tell her that she swallowed a radio when she was a baby that is why she cant stop talking, she does not mind that, she enjoys talking a lot and proud of it.
We have had very few problems with the brace so far as Aida is determined to get her teeth fixed, thank God for that.
It is nearly time for the greatest sports show on earth, The Olympics, since it is being held in China this time, there has been a lot of interest on everything Chinese. Engrish is the name given to the funny English mainly spoken by Chinese and Japanese people and the funny spelling mistakes they make, it is referred to as Chinglish as well.
There is a website dedicated to Engrish, it is full of hilarious (or should that be hirarious!) pictures from China and Japan that you can enjoy looking at, I have put a some pictures here, I hope you enjoy them as I heard that the authorities in China are doing major clean up for the Olympics and are actually correcting all the spelling mistakes, which is a shame really :o)
Best of luck to China for a great memorable Olympics.....
