Blood Donation!

Today was a good day to do some good. I went to donate blood! Dragging Puisan with me, we took the hopper bus and off we went to the sports center where the Blood Donation Drive Campaign was at.

So, when we got there, the turnout was huge! There were a lot of people waiting for their turn. I wasn't expecting so many people to be so generous but there you have it. We waited nearly 2 hours just to get screened and another 10-15 minutes to get called to donate our precious life fluid.

It was painful... Here, they don't use local anaesthetic prior to putting that huge needle into us, so you can feel every prick, push and pull. I donated 470mls of blood while Puisan only managed 4 test tubes (LoL). Must be the weather too cold so her blood froze.. hehe..

Anyway, the site of entry is still painful now. Wonder if it's because LA wasn't use thus the pain is magnified, as I don't remember this much pain when donating the last 3 times.

Btw, we got lots of biscuits. (yea yea.. I went just for the free food.) We were there from 1230... and we only left at 4.. -_- ..
