BRUSHING YOUR TEETH IN BRAZIL

Do you know that almost all Brazilian, brush their teeth after every meal everyday?
It is so true!!!

When i was a month in Brazil back in 2008. I saw it everyday.
It's kind of tradition.
Kids, adults and oldish generation, all of them practicing it. :)

I was working in Flextronics Sorocaba whereby the very first day, i saw a group of ladies brushing their teeth in the loo after we took our breakfast. When i went out, i bumped into a group of gentlemen with the toothbrush in their hands. Dahla handsome-handsome... cair ok!!! keke :) The same scenario seen after lunch and tea time. I was working with my machines in the line, when i visited the nearest toilet, it was occupied with lady operators brushing their teeth happily.

Yes, i did bring my toothbrush to work too, but not every after meal i brushed my teeth. 3 times a day compared to 6/7 times a day like brazilian??? So, me and my team, we decided to follow the routine. To feel it. ;)

On my last day in Brazil, i spent a night in Sao Paulo before flied back to Malaysia. I took the chance to visit Plaza Morumbi, a great shopping mall in Sao Paulo city. I had my seafood dinner in one of the restaurant.. argh.. cannot recall the name. But what's interesting was, when i went to the loo after that, there were people from all kind of age, brushing their teeth! Owh!! They brush their teeth in shopping mall's loo too!!!

It 's adoring you know, to see the small kids with cutie mutie toothbrush brushing their teeth at the little tiny sink, in the loo, of the biggest shopping mall :)
They have been practicing it since babies, so the culture of brushing their teeth will be ongoing forever. "Melentur buluh biar dari rebungnya"

IMPRESSIVE!!!!! :)

X-Deena Team from X-company i worked before. You guys rocked!!!! :)

Brazil's colleague, Fernando Nagai

Brazil's colleague, Robson Pezzotta

Cantekkan gigi diorang? :)

My family in Brazil. I miss you, Pamela!!!!

Owh, writing about brushing teeth reminds me of my Little Man. I think he is now ready to explore this. At 14 months, he's now having 2 and 1/2 teeth. :P I cannot wait longer for his next tooth to show up. Berzaman!!

Xde gigi ke, ade 2 batang jeke, Oman tetap Pojaan hatiku!!!! :)
