Cord Blood Awareness

My best friend Ris delivered her first baby a week ago. She’s so happy and excited with her little angel. She’s been telling me what her baby looks like, her wide round eyes, her red soft lips, and the nose; ah she is indeed lovely as I pictured her in my mind.

The only thing that bothers her is the idea of her baby becoming sick. She might freak out. Living alone with her baby away from home is very hard knowing that relatives and close friend aren’t physically there to help. So she considered of her baby’s future and the lifetime prospect of banking the Umbilical Cord Blood at Cryo-Cell

To make it simpler, cord blood banking is the assemblage and storage of the stem cells found in your newborn's umbilical cord.

Based on the research she did, Treating disease with Stem Cells saves thousand of lives as it cure over 70 life-threatening diseases. Such as leukemia, lymphomas and cancer. So when you bank your baby’s cord blood, you are making a choice that could potentially provide a lifesaving treatment for your child or a family member.

Cord blood or the umbilical cord blood, is the blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta upon giving birth. This blood was usually thrown away until in one research, it was found out that this blood is a rich source of stem cell which is now being use as a substitute for bone marrow in countless number of success transplant operation. Thus the value of cord blood saves lives of many people

I am proud with my friend Ris for this great decision. For sure her baby will appreciate it when she grows up. :)

Well, Cisco is a large known company that provides many of the known devices used in computer networking. Aside from that they do to have programs or educational system that will give each one a competitive advantage in the Information Technology field.

Like what happen in my husband's office. The company management is laying off some IT professions and those with Cisco certification will be retained. This certification is an extensive training program for IT profession making them more competitive. Hence, this certification giving them the edge in the IT career. No wonder many successes Cisco certified holders are offered with high paying jobs here and outside the country thus making them happier and contented in their own job.

So I asked my husband if he has plans get a cisco certification. He said he has soon. He believed that it is very important to anyone related with IT field the advancement through training like what Cisco offers. Like in his situation as an employee in one of the biggest semiconductor company in the country, it will be a great move if he too will upgrade his knowledge and skills through Cisco as it will make him even more competitive in his job. We can never tell if sooner the management might cut off some employees in their level.

To those who wants to have the advancement, it's never to late to start. Have a Cisco Certification now.

So can you see the Tilapia? If not look closer lolz.

Craving for sweet and sour tilapia since yesterday. This weekend, I 'll try to cook this. Hubz likes eating fish dishes but sad to say, I only knew less than ten recipes. Because I do not eat fish that much. Hence, I only like tilapia, Milk fish, Mackarel scad (also know as galunggong), tuna, gindara to name a few. So you could just imagine how hubz misses eating paksiw or pinangat. But sometimes, I cook such dishes for him and open a can of sardines for me. So that settles. hahaha.

Oh well. I am just lucky that hubz doesn't complain about it. ;)

Hmmm...are you like me or are you like hubz?

Have a great day by the way!



yellow santan Originally uploaded by jeannycdj

Have you ever tried sipping the sweet nectar of the santan flower? As a kid, my sibling and I enjoyed it. I had one funny experience with the nectar sipping way time I was about eight or nine years old, i sipped one flower then I suddelny feel that something bit my tongue...ouchhhh. Crap! there was a red ant. So you could just imagine how it feel. From then on, I never dare to sip that flower again. Hmp!

So I am off to some errands. Have a great weekend everyone!
