Foot Massager Giveaway #5 and BLM (Massage Monday #505)

My YouTube channel hit 135,000 subscribers few days ago. Thank you so much!

As I promised, it’s time for another giveaway!

For those of you who are new to me, one day I was cleaning my room and found an extra unused Daiso foot massager which costed me $1.50. I decided to give it away and so many people wanted it to my surprise.

So I started giving it away every so often as I hit certain subscriber milestones. I manually pick the winner and send it to anywhere in the world even if the postage is more than 10 times the cost of the product. I have sent it to winners in different parts of Europe and United States so far.

This time I have this large black one to give away. I usually get one at Daiso for $1.50 in my neighborhood but this one I got in Japan the last time I was there. I got this at another 100 yen store, I think it was Seria. Daiso’s foot massager is usually pastel color and I had never seen black. I think it’s sleek and stylish. This was the only one left at the store so I was very lucky to score it.

I never planned this but since it’s timely when Black Lives Matter is going on, here’s my take on BLM.

As a massage therapist, I have had opportunities to massage people of all kinds of colors. It is such a privilege to work with people on their bare skin. To me a different skin color simply means more or less number of pigment called melanin present in a given square inch of your skin. That’s all. No matter what color their skin, people get stress and knots and enjoy massage. And from my experience, the darker the skin, the longer they tend to retain youth. It is beautiful.

Of course all lives matter including animals and trees and plants but this is not the time to say it to invalidate their speech and forgo the overdue recognition and acknowledgement.

Btw, shout out to Seth Rogen. You’re my hero on how you handled this matter!

Anyway, that was an opinion by this yellow colored massage therapist. Black Lives Matter. I totally stand with you.

With that said, to enter for this foot massager giveaway, say “BLM” in the comments below and I will put you in the pool.

The deadline is this Sunday July 5, 2020 at 12 Noon (PST).
