Before the donation, I had my lunch and feel tired and so. Thought I would not make it (again!) this time.
It was by coincident, in the morning I was IM'ing with a colleague who was also a 1st timer. "wei, you want to donate blood today?"..... I kept silence a while, giving a set of excuse, but was so tempted to try. Besides, it was an influenced by someone, who's a consistent blood donor, who happened to challenge me a week ago!
My friend and I been chit-chatting and motivating each other, both 1st timer, sitting side by side ... we dare not watch ourselves while being poked! We then watch each others' process and described them in words!!! haaa... very creative ya. With that, we both able to get a pint of blood each in just less than 5min.
