Kempen Derma Darah Pra Ramadhan 2011 Ansara

Ha....mari mari mari!!!! Kaki derma darah derma organ semua apa tungg lagi???? Ansara is having the annual blood doation campaign countrywide (yeah, satu Malaysia ada booth) at local JJ Aeon outlets and guess what, I am maning the place located for Ansara Terendak today (and hopefully tomorrow)....

*lokasi bertukar - bukan Alpha Angle tapi JJ Aeon AU2 @ Setiawangsa sana*

I was at the booth since noon today and just said my goodbyes to run to Starbucks and write this post because seriously, the response is not that awesome.


First - the location. The campaign centre is located at the first floor in front of Song Box - far away from public view. Macam mana nak tarik orang ramai ni?? Dah la banner and tanda arah tak kelihatan, even when I first got here I was a bit lost to a point that I have to make a few calls to Ansara pusat's committee members ....baru jumpa.....

Yeah, agak demmm....

Nevertheless, a few of us volunteers actually wet around the mall distributig pamphlets and letting the public know about the blood donation event happening so ada la a few very generous donors yang drop by and donated!

Phewh!!! God bless their souls.

Which brings to the second big problem....

...most of us have a huge taboo against blood donation.

Bila sebut blood donation/derma darah je everyone would go...

"EEeeew.....sakit...jarum besar"


"Alamak, saya anti sikit derma darah ni"

Anti? Oh yes, one actually said that.

Ada satu tu....

"Saya muda lagi...tak payah la derma-derma ni".


Don't even let me start on the remarks they give when we mention organ donation.....

Even more sad.

I would have donated if I could but I failed the "being in Europe/UK in the 80's and 90's" test against mad cow disease. Part of me was relieved that I do not have the need to poke my arm with a huge needle but another part of me felt bad because I can't help in case there is someone in need.

Besides, who knows one day I might need someone else's blood in return? No matter how young and healthy we are now we wouldn't know what will happen in the future and when else the table would turn and we will be at the unfortunate end.


Besides, blood donation can't be that bad....

See...abang ni relax je derma darah...okay je....

Plus they give you a goodie bag for donating....


Anyways, I am glad I made it around today. Eventhough I can donate my blood, I did participate......

Yes, I am a donor. Since 2007 actually, thanks to Alia who introduced me to it. Today I upgraded my profile and donor card.

To those who are interested to contribute, the campaign is still on till tomorrow. We have it in all major JJ outlets in Malaysia including in Penang and's great to have an extra helping hand.

Dah lama tak blogging??

OMG, yes, sangat lama tak berblogging. Ika dah label I "back to being an auditor" for slumming with work 24-7 over the past 2 months but looking back despite all the pain I have to admit I am enjoying it. Sure, I worry most of the time abgout a lot of things but then what the heck, I would be worrying about other things even more meaningless if I was somewhere else, so I suppose I'll get over the worrying someday.

I am now a routing to a path of a confessed workaholic. So please bear my silence. To my friends who do miss me (oh Nina, yes.....I miss blogging but I am frreaking busy!!!) here's proof that I don't take life for granted (despite my tight schedule) and that I do try my best to go around....

That's last May when Tito Manny and family was around, we spent the weekend touring Malacca and for once...I took all the rides and went to the museums. I think the last time I did that was over a decade ago. How time flies.

I said goodbye to my bestie Jo who seek greener pastures in the land of the queen with her hubby over a cup of teh tarik ice cream. Its not a permanent goodbye though...grin....hopefully we will meet again soon.

To come to think about it we have been trying to keep in touch via skype but the time difference is killing me since I keep on dozing off for being too tired when she called. Sigh. No worries. Will call you next weekend.


Another bestie Era celebrated her bday over middle eastern food at Al-Rawsha. Love the balloons!

My lil sister (from a different mother) got married and despite how sunny and hot it was, look at how great the make-up turn out?

I was freaking happy. For the wedded couple of course. And over the flawless make-up.


Took a trip with the girls to Port Dickson over Labour Day weekend and loving the picture of the almost sunset by the beach. It's pretty ain't it?

Took another trip to Singapore on the first weekend of June (a month immediately after the PD trip) and spend a motherload on Charles and Keith shoes and bags.

Gosh, whoever owns that place must be freaking rich because I am not the only one one spending motherloads on shoes and bags that weekend.

Nevertheless without a single dash of guilt I went to more than 10 c&K stores along Orchard Road till my back feels like breaking to pieces.

The most happiest day ever.

The girls (namely Komala, Wen Chu and Shahnaz) took me to the spa for my bday (because we were all freaking tired and swamped over work...and my bday is a very good excuse for a motherload of pampering) and threw me a rainbow birthday party @ Rebung with a bunch of my ex-kpmg buddies.


They went all the way with the deco and balloons I was stunned.

The spa was good. The dinner was even better.

I didn't get to say this immediately after (because again, work drained me like a zombie within 24 hours) but I really love it...thank you guys!

Mwah!!! mwah!!!

And my girls ain't the only one who splash over my birthday....

My siblings and my mom took me to karoke!!! No pics though! thertinggal cdamera. But I tell you that same week I karoke like 3 days in a the third karoke session semua suara dah hilang...

Heheheh, I had fun though!


Last but not least, last weekend we threw a birthday party for Shahnaz who celebratedher bday a week apart from me @ Luna Bar.....

See??? I told you I didn't miss out on life.


I want to say sorry though for all the wedding invites and engagement ceremonies that I can't attend due to my work commitments. There's just so much time in a day to squeeze everything in but then hey, I'll try my best next time.


Can't wait to be in Kuching next weekend for the rainforest festival.


Till then, ciao darlings!
