Unreleased Song By Christina Grimmie

It’s hard to see someone so special leave this world. Despite what happened, Christina has left good impacts in this world and people. My respects goes out to her and her family.

I’ve been following Christina even when before she joined the Voice competition. Have always subscribed to her and listen to her songs. Recently it’s just hard to see her new Music Video of unreleased version but here’s one that we should watch. It’s her message to us out there.

Cheers to all. We missed you much Christina

Yay! Donated

So Happy I’m able to donate my blood. I went to QE yesterday to donate. I won’t be able to join the one organized by Kasi this coming Friday 21st June as I’ll be outstation. So I decided to go direct to the source to donate. It will end up at the same place anyway

Feeling Blessed and Thankful because I was able to donate and It’s just right after my 40th Birthday as well 🙂

Chicken Soup for the Soul

I’m actually a Chicken Soup for the Soul Lover. I’ve had had few titles over the years. One of which from the article, I’ve always used when I thank or bless someone before. Over the years, I’ve forgotten to use it

So I’m gonna say this to my readers here..


Angel Wings around you always~ 😀

Blood Donation Campaign by KASI-21st June 2019

There will be a Blood Donation Drive by KASI. Their office situated right below where I work at in Wisma Perindustrian. Got an email from them probably from previous drive that I joined before. So I’m sharing it here in case someone may read this and decide to join in the drive. The Digital flyer can be found below.

A long time ago I did an article on who can donate, age limit, restrictions and what you can do to ease your nerve during donation but I lost my whole blog that time so I can’t get it back. I myself is afraid of needles poking into my veins. So what I did was to look away bit of time before the needle start poking into my arms hahaha. True confession 😀

My first blood donation was when I was 20 years old. The company that I worked with that time (Taiyo) had organised a Blood Donation drive. With some encouragement from my colleagues, I was able to go through my first ever donation. My booklet is still white in Color (given by Sarawak General Hospital) and still am using till now. Although when I came to Kota Kinabalu, I saw that their booklet is Red in color. Not too sure about other states in Malaysia. Do drop me a comment if you know what color they may be ya

I do have a partner in crime here that do the donations with me. His story is one of those that keeps me doing the donations, although nowadays usually I was rejected from donating. Hopefully with the better health by losing some weight, I will be able to donate again. It’s one of my passion to help those in need. Donating your blood has no price tag nor can it be valued at. I donate because someone else’s life may depend on it, knowing that gives me all the rewards i’ll ever need

Back to my partner in crime. He was not a blood donor before. One day he got into a really bad bike accident while drunk (till today he still has scars on his arms and one side of his eyesight is still affected). He lost a lot of blood and went through some operations. He said he was really thankful for the blood donor that donated to him that time. Ever since then, he promised himself to donate whenever he had the chance :). As for me, I’ve been in a bike accident before but nothing of that serious, although i did became ‘Superman’ on the road dragging myself around 10Meter on the newly paved road with new tar. I had had my skin cut off that time and it feels like my skin was being peeled off!! Anyway, I donate because I wanted to and I glad I started it. But aiya, I won’t be able to join this time as I’ll be outstation that whole week. Just wish it were on another day. So I’ll just post here as well as my FB page so the rest can find out on it

I first found out that I had R2R2 type blood more than 10 years ago. I guess it was around year 2007 or 2008. My first donation started in Year 2000 and those few years they did not check that I was R2R2 while I was still in Kuching. It was only when I went to donate in KK Queen Elizabeth that they told me I am R2R2 and wrote it on my donator book. I was confused and worry cos first time hearing that R2R2. Then I found out that my blood is suitable for patient with Thalassemia. The next time I actually received call from QE to go donate. There was a request for it and they needed it urgently. I think it was around 2008 or 2009 that time. When I was there to donate, I asked the question if there are any other R2R2 donor out there in KK. If i can recall correctly, the Nurse actually mentioned there are only 2 or 3 in KK at that time (it’s either one of those 2 numbers) and the other had already went in to donate or something. I think it was for a child as well that time…

So those of you out there who may be thinking to do something today, perhaps donating your blood to someone who needs may be just what you need. The hospital blood bank is always opened, so you can even just stroll in and donate. Bring someone or a friend if this is your first time and you feel nervous. All the best and once again thanks for reading this long blog and hope it encourages you as well to start donating your blood to save lives out there. God blesses your Kind Soul

Usual Jog and Run today

Last few days weather for the past week has been a really wet one for KK here. So the last few days I haven’t been doing the usual Jog and Run exercise. Well, mostly walk at first when I started. Nowadays especially today I think i reached 30% Jog with some sprinting

The usual routine went smoothly and I manage to do more sprinting today. Guess I’m feeling healthier now. When I first began 5 weeks ago, it was hard to even Jog a 15Meter length.

However when I went back to my office after the run today, I was so tired that I went down the wrong slope. Manage to stop myself before going into the ditch (I’m just being dramatic here 😀 ). But on the way up the pavement again, i twisted my knee (it’s an old injury that happens time to time when I’m not careful), so I had to sit it out for while like 7 to 8 minutes or so before I could walk again. Had to sit and lie down a while to streth it back. Luckily I did not have to call for help. My Knee was fine after but with a little pain. So I walked another distance back and went back office to continue work and write this meantime.

In Addition to that, almost every morning I do Planking + Push Ups plus half sit ups as well. I’ve started with 20 plankings and 10 sit ups. Now my routine goes up to 30 plankings + push ups and 15 sits up. The loss of weight seems to help a lot in getting me healthier here. Glad it did 🙂

Those of you who wishes to lose some weight and share your stories, do drop me some comments or write to my email elffoot@kepoh.net

Cheers, God Bless and all the best~~ Ganbatte!!
