I smile + You smile = We smile

Once when I read Kennysia’s blog on “Product Naming for Dummies”, I almost believe him that Osim has got a vacuum cleaner called …..

Osim sales people almost throw me in the lion dangeon when I ask to look at their iSuck.

“Errr… miss, we don’t have iSuck. You want iEcologi? iMedic? iSymphonic?”

“Got leh. My friend told me got iSuck.”

I just wonder what is so special about ‘i’ that Osim named almost all their product that way. Issit it their marketing gimmick? After they launch their iSqueeze leg massager, they came out with uZap slimming belt. Hey, that is not bad at all. iSqueeze your leg, uZap my crotch. iGallop happily home. iDesire that.

Would you feel annoyed when there are more ‘i’ product in Apple’s iPod, iMac, iBook?

Imagine this. You own a iSoft thumb drive. Walking around the office with them hanging around your neck. Wah, candidates of Brokeback Mountain. They should name the thumbdrive iHard!!!

……………………………………

And last week, when I got a invitation card to a soft opening ceremony of a friend’s dental clinic, the name caught my attention right away that I started to rolling on floor laughing out loud.

This really make me SMILE πŸ™‚ !

After the usual makan-makan, I went upstairs to her clinic for a tour. There is this gentleman greeted me at the door.

“Hi, your first time touring here?”

“Yeah (whipping out my digicam)

“Let me give you a tour in our clinic.”

“Ok. (*what? liddat also need tour. Just ignore his yakking and start snapping away. Hubby is the one listening.)

Omg, the toilet sign is so cute. I want! I want! Peep in the toilet and found the wash basin like the beauty salon that I went too. I would think if she had the aromatheraphy oil buring, it would give the patient a relaxing mind. I think ylang-ylang is for soothing mind. NOt sure.

(I was snapping away but could hear the nice gentleman explaning the concept and layout of the clinic)

“This is the disinfection room where we sterilized all the equipment everyday.”

(Yawn…. brag on. brag on.)Wah look at the corridor. Lot of pictures hanging along the corridor.”

She had lots and lots of pictures hanging all over the wall. This place looks more like a hotel than a dental clinic. My impression of a dental clinic is always stained chair, hand prints on the wall, a funny smell lingering in the air, posters of your denture all over the wall! Ok. I’m feeling a bit more easy and not so tense up.

This is the surgery room cum x-ray room. Partition boards is built with a lead sheet in between them to block out X-rays. This save them space to allocate another x-ray room. Did you spot the LCD screen on the dental chair showing your x-ray? Isn’t that pretty cool?

(… and the gentleman again go on and on and on. I know I deserve a spanking) This dental chair is very special. It has a earphone for you to….”

“Wait. A earphone? Hey, this is pretty cool. Listening to a music while getting our teeth work out. I’ll make sure to blast the volumn as long as I can’t hear all those clink, clong, clang instrument hitting each other.”

This is getting more interesting on the clinic. So I make sure to pay a little attention at this nice gentlement. Anyway, he’s not that bad looking. Kinda cuteeeee!

“Each room is painted in different colour to coordinate on the mood and function of the room. The doctor or misi will not wear the same ole whites. If a surgery is being carried out in the blue room, they will put on the blue robe.”

“Oh…. hey, you are coordinate with the room too. See, green room and green T-shirt.”

Why not let the patient join in the colour coordination? Instead of making them wear a baby bib, put them in the coloured robe. It sure will make them smile a bit.

Even their waiting area is better looking compared to my living hall. But I do find it a bit weird staring at the flat screen LCD monitor. Still prefer a TV screen anytime. And I bet that white, silky, comfy chair is going to regret getting stains.

Errr… by the way, have I mentioned the owner of this dental clinic? She none other than our….

On your right is our beaming proud owner of the iSmile Dental Center. See! She’s not that scary looking at all. Must delete all those sluty, big bumb image from your head. I can tell that Estee Lauder moisturizer really works on her!!!

I’ve got an appointment to see her in 2 weeks time and will definitely let you know how canggih is her equipment. Most importantly is the PAIN!!!

    Thanks for sharing this cool place…iSmile sounds really cool. Anyway, would you please post the location and contact info of the clinic? My denture really needs polishing and the leftover tooths need sharpening. I would luv to experience the new gadgets in the dental clinic. Wow…I can muff away the drilling sound with a hip hop song? That sounds really cool. I hope they also have iLaugh gas so that I wont feel be in great pain. I do not want to end up walking out of the dental clinic with an iCry face… My denture is yelling for an appoinment…):

    Okie Dokie….. We can try to meet up for some BKT after I sharpen up my teeth at iSmile. Before I come, I will ask for your help to make an appointment with the dentist for me. It wont be real soon, but soon enough within this year. Meanwhile, keep blogging. I enjoyed reading the blogs. I give your blog 2 thumbs up… The other 2 thumbs reserved for future improvements or perhaps our BKT session. Cheers! CK
