hehe I’m typing this in my syntax class now. oops I’m a bad student.
I have been meaning to blog about this for ages: brushing your teeth after meals / in the morning etc in school.
I’m very curious about how common is it to do so in your country / school. I started to develop this habit while I was working part time in a fund management company back in Singapore. Some of my colleagues did it, and I picked up the habit. It’s gross to not brush your teeth for the entire day (personal opinion!). There were people who do not have the habit but they do not comment on those that did it – which is totally fine by me.
Back in university in Singapore, I do that sometimes and I hate it when people give me the incredulous look and one of my classmates actually went ‘omg you didn’t brush your teeth in the morning??!!!’ I gave her the -.- look and ignored her. Ridiculous people. But it’s true that people will stare at you weirdly in the restrooms if you do that. Makes me a little self conscious but I can’t be bothered with them.
Very very rarely will I meet any girl who does that, and I can almost safely say that no guy will do that in Singapore.
That’s why I’m so happy to be in Korea. It’s super common to see girls brushing their teeth in the toilets and no one will say anything at all. I’ve seen girls who will ask their friends if they want to go brush teeth together. It’s normal to take out your dental care set and there’s no need to hide what you are doing.
It’s funny because Koreans go one step even further and they have no problems sticking the toothbrush in their mouth and start brushing even when they are outside the toilets O.o hahaha I won’t really do that but I don’t judge them. xD
It’s common for guys to do that too! Me likes. But I have a shrewd feeling that guys do it because they don’t want to smell of cigarettes LOL.
But I still get annoying comments from the international students here. The other day I was in the toilet brushing when my classmate from China came in and exclaimed really loudly ‘OMG SHANNA. since when have you develop this habit like the Koreans?!!’. -.- I was in a ‘do not disturb’ mood that day and I just ignored her oops.
I’m really curious on what you guys think about this issue!! Feel free to voice your opinions (and disagree with me!).
