The P500 Kasoy

Last month, I arrived at the yoga center without having had the chance to take my afternoon merienda.  So when I saw I was early, and my yoga friend Chona was there, I asked her to accompany me downstairs to buy some fries from McDo.

Chona dissuaded me, claiming we still had to do our warm-ups and we could be late for classes. Besides, she said, the center had a plateful of cashew nuts we could munch on.

I should have listened to my intuition. I got a cashew, took one bite and heard an awful crack. A crown at the upper right of my mouth had split in 2.  So, a few days later, I had to go back to my ortho to have the crown replaced.  The cost? P500 buckaroos!!!

That was the most expensive kasoy in my entire life! From now on, I will swear off kasoy and all things nutty until these braces come off….

  1. hi jane!

    i have a similar story: while killing time before a yoga class, i walked over to the snack bar and bought some exotic-looking piece of chocolate — some nutty, espresso-y thing. i unwrapped it and bit into it with my front teeth. and yes, just like you, i cracked my tooth! however, unlike you, i needed a post and a crown to restore the tooth. which means that it cost me way more than P500 ($10? nothing’s that cheap around here)!

    the moral of the story: don’t eat right before a yoga class, no matter how hungry you are 🙂

  2. Hi there joni!

    it’s so wonderful to wake up, open my blog and find a yogini like you from way over the other side of the world. i visited your blog and am amazed at the number of yoga studios in the L.A. area alone! Yoga is just starting to flourish here in Manila.

    Re the price of a crown here? haha. when converted to US dollars, everything in this country is CHEAP!

    Let’s stay in touch. I want to exchange views with you regarding our yoga experiences. Mine has been limited to hatha vinyasa yoga for now but I see you have references to all kinds of studios and instructors. Which type of yoga works best for you?

What did you think of this post? I'd love to hear from you...
