Bloody Thursday

It's a bloody Thursday. Some people would avoid, they said phobia. Some people would shake head, they said painful. Contrastingly, some people would be as "cruel" as me, couldn't wait to lie down over there...


Few minutes later, 2 white angels came to me...


They prepared necessary to "poke" me...


Within seconds, I was "poked" and "drained"...


Yeah, I was "cruel" to myself, I am a blood donor, a volunteer donor...


This blood donation drive was organized by my company with PDN...


Pusat Darah Negara aka National Blood Bank.

About 30 minutes, everything's done...


Yeah, my blood always drains fast, could be due to the impatient me. Hehe... My company also complimented a 2GB thumb drive...


I felt refreshed. Hehe... I don't know why, I have such feeling every time after donation. May be it's like what explained in the wikipedia, I could have just burned 650 calories.

This wasn't my first time...


13 times in 13 years (Hmm... 1313 4D may be?). It's also a good record book to record my health history. The gaps of 2 or 3 years were due to surgeries. It also reminds me to stay healthily.

Come, be a donor too. I assure you no pain, it's just like a mosquito bite. The risk is zero or minimal as the transfusion is done by professionals, plus you improve your health too. Help people help you, a win-win.

I'm also an organ donor but I lost my card long ago when my wallet got snatched. May be I should re-register myself.
