Save others? Or yourself?



Last night I made some plans to go for a blood donation
(Due to lack of sleep and procrastination) and so TODAY I went for it! 
Invited Krystal to tag along as I needed some company!
 She made a last minute decision to donate some blood too cause' she was curious.

Drove to the hospital and when we got there, we got lost.
Then we read the directory again and realised that we read the WRONG directory.
But yeah I saw the RIGHT one on the right side of the wrong one we read.
Get it? 

Anyways...
It says 4th floor and  right after we came out..
We were confused where it was.Too many signs pointing left and right.
Then we proceeded to the Blood Bank Section and filled in the form 
before proceeding to the next step.

Then...
We went into the room to get my blood pressure checked 
while Krystal was still dealing with the nurse and checking her weight
which was only 45kg (45kg is the passing weight to donate blood).

Mine was all fine and I passed! Unfortunately for Krystal...
The nurse came in with news for her...
( No..she's not pregnant.)

This was how the conversation went :

Nurse : " Hey moi..You cant donate your blood today.."
Krystal : " O.O Why? Not healthy kah? "
Nurse : " Not that you're not healthy..Its just that your Hemoglobin level is not enough to donate..."
Krystal : " Huh? Means I'm not healthy? How much do I need to donate?" 
Me : " Not that...It means you dont have enough blood to donate.."
Krystal " Huh? Why? "
Nurse : " Well..For now you only have enough blood for yourself..
Can't donate yet..You need at least +12 to donate.."
Krystal : " Then how can I make the blood level go up? "
Nurse : " You should eat more veges, meat n fruits.."
Me : " ....And yeah...Sleep more too...=.=''' You too skinny...
Dont keep saying you fat.."
Krystal : " =.=''' owkay.... "

Then after that...

I sat on the chair and the nurse gave me a
jab of anesthetic WHICH for some reason I felt a little sting!
(WHICH I didn't feel it at all at the previous session)

Then when she took the needle out and took an even 
BIGGER and FATTER NEEDLE which wasn't the same one
I saw previously too made my heart beat even faster like a rock concert.
Then I saw the blood flowing into the empty blood pack.



Always wanted to do that during blood donation..


The nurse gave me a Moo-Moo bandaid after the session was over!

Do you part too by donating some blood.
You may some someone's life just by giving a little.
A little goes a long way.

Here are the steps to making your very own Cropped Tank Top!
Supplies that you need :
Big Tshirts and Scissors

Step One : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.
Step Two : Cut the collar part off. Then try on the shirt!  If the sleeves are too thick cut it again til the sleeves becomes slightly thinner.

Coral Flyer Island to Island Zipline, Pulau Sapi, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

***Updated***

Hey hey hey! Guess what?
I just had the most awesome-mess time at the Coral Flyer!
WORLD'S LONGEST AND ALSO THE FIRST ISLAND TO ISLAND ZIPLINE
IN MALAYSIA! ONLY IN KOTA KINABALU,SABAH!


2 week ago, a group of 12 bloggers and 3 friends set out on an island trip to try the Coral Flyer.
We gathered at 9am in the jetty in Jesselton Point and the best part was we managed to
convince the guy at the counter for student price tickets!

***Note that boat ride from Mainland - Pulau Sapi are at own cost.***



Kendy decided to join us for this trip!

We took a boat to Pulau Sapi first cause' that's where you get your tickets for the Coral Flyer.
Weather was really sunny that day and we decided to chill at Pulau Sapi before
trying out the Coral Flyer.



See that guy in yellow.. that's Mr.Simon Amos!
The owner of Ropeskills Sdn Bhd, Sabah Indoor Climbing Centre AND also the Coral Flyer.

Everyone had to fill in the waiver form before getting on the flying fox.

Cotton On Malaysia

T.G.I.F y'all! How was everyone's week so far?
Its already October! How times flies! Would like to apologize for disappearing for a while as I have been really busy with work,climbing and also other events.
A few days ago, I was thinking about shopping for bras and shoes somewhere around town but I didn't have the time to do so. Then Elaine suggested I shop online in Cotton On Malaysia. It never came across my mind to shop in Cotton On and I'm a huge fan of Cotton On.

Its really worth shopping with Cotton On online cause' most of the
things you see online they don't sell it here locally. All you have to do is just
sign up and you'll automatically get a 30% discount code to shop with and I kid you
not everything is super cheap! Their sales can go up to 70% and its madness!
Things can go from as low as Rm2.00 and seriously who doesn't love sales?

Product Review : Ronasutra Mineral Makeup

A month ago,
I ordered a bunch of mineral makeups fromRonasutra.
I have been a loyal user of Ronasutra for years now and I really love how their products are good for sensitive skin like mine.
Their price ranges are very affordable.

Back when I first discovered Ronasutra products ,  I was feeling a little skeptical on trying out their products but reading their infos and reviews from blogs and youtubers, I decided to give it a go.  Went on to their website and browsed around and I realized how much this brand has grown. 

This is my favourite category in the whole website. Look at all the different shades and tones they came out with. I'm currently using the one in the shade (04 Honey) which is sold out at the moment.
I just found out about their skincare line and I love the packaging. I am so looking into trying out their skincare products in the future.
I even tried out their blusher before and I really love how well it blends on the skin and how lasting it is on my cheeks. I us…

Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara
I love the brush! Makes it easy to apply on and it gives  that really full look if you want those volumized looking eyelashes!
 Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion
The lotion smells really nice and fruity!  I love it cause of its non-oily texture. It doesn't have that oily and stick…
