Why donate blood?
Picture pilfered from the National Blood Bank website
This is one of my favourite place in KL. Or maybe I should say, one of my comfort haven... the National Blood Bank. I found out about this place when I was studying in uni then as our hostel are located in Titiwangsa.
Anyway, why it is one of my favourite place? Well, people usually see it the side where being a blood donor helps people in need, provide supply to the blood banks... but to me, there is another side to it. Somehow, donating it gives comfort, sort of like giving is loving. It gives this contented feeling, and as you sit down there, with your hand pumping to let the blood flow, it soothe troubled soul.
Maybe, maybe I dont describe it well enough. But each time I visited this place, it magically calms my rough thoughts, my anger, my uneasiness. And despite it leaves this needle prick mark and once a while a patch of blue black, it is a very worthwhile cause.
