The work that we did there was no fun. We got nasty, felt beat, tired, bored and overworked but the good part was that the food was GREAT! We ate at Kobe Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar with staff cooking your food right in front of you in an extraordinary show on a Teppanyaki table. I don't normally pick out a Japanese resto since I know nothing about their cuisine but I was glad somebody did. I ordered steak and shrimp with fried rice and oohh it was so delicious.
They finally let us go home around 7:00 P.M. yesterday but oh boy, my thighs and calves hurt like crazy. I miss blogging and EC dropping and I'm just so glad that I'm back here in my hubby's care. By the way, Jeff and I would be leaving for Illinois tomorrow night. We'll be spending Christmas at my sister's place so I will be absent from Entrecard again. I'll bring my laptop so hopefully, if I don't feel soooo dead tired, I'll EC drop while we're in a hotel. I'll definitely be back and my apologies if I won't be able to visit your blogs in 4 days or so. Until then...

Have you heard about the movie "Twilight?" You have probably watched it yourself as well. I was hoping to read the book first before watching the movie but I've read from a blog that it's ok to watch the movie even before reading the book so we went ahead and give it a shot. We liked it! I didn't think Jeff would but yes, he did like it too. He went inside the theatre not knowing the plot of the movie so he was a bit surprised when he realized that it's about a lovestory of a vampire and a mortal with its complications. They say it's still good to read the book so we're gonna get a copy of it as soon as it'll be available in bookstores again. This will be our next Harry Potter book reading bonding. Yes, you've read it right! We've read the whole HP series together before going to bed. It seems like Twilight series would be our next book bonding session.
Alright, time for work updates...We had our Christmas Potluck today. We have food and everything but it's not quite the same as what we used to do back in the Philippines. No exchanging of gifts, no games, no program, no nothing, hahahaha! We simply had lunch and that's it. The food was yummy though. There was a dessert there that I really like. Too bad I didn't know the name of it. But it's kinda like an Orange dessert. I love it!
Now, for winter weather updates... We had an ice storm since last night. I was surprised to see Jeff in our parking lot when I get off from work last night. He was worried about me because he knew that I am inexperienced when it comes to driving on ice so he went to pick me up at work. Wow, my ever thoughtful husband was in action again! The weather didn't get better this morning but at least they put sands and salt on the roads to melt the ice and create more tire traction. I was late at work for the first time but I was not the least bothered about it. My co-worker didn't even get there until it was around 10:30. You can only see few vehicles on the streets. This is like one of those typhoon days in the PI, when classes are suspended and most people just chose to stay at home than work or have fun. I asked my boss if I could leave an hour early today so as not to drive home in the dark on a very icy weather. He was ok with it and I'm thankful. I hope it's going to be a better day tomorrow.
Hmmm. I can smell the steak from here. Hubby is broiling some steaks for dinner. I gotta end this and eat dinner now. I am famished!!!

We were devastated when we learned that our grandmother was diagnosed of stage II breast cancer a couple of years back. She has lived all her life in Bohol but she chose to stay with us back in Cebu when she had her treatments. I saw with my two eyes how difficult it was for her dealing with the chemotherapy but with God’s help, she made it through the storm. In the first quarter of 2006, I, on the other hand, found out that I had a lump on my left breast. The doctor told me that I need to undergo a biopsy procedure to check if the lump is malignant or not. Oh boy, I broke into tears inside the clinic’s ladies room. We have breast cancer history in our family and I was just so afraid that my biopsy will turn out to be malignant. I had it removed through an out-patient minor surgery and I was thankful that it was just benign.
Medical researchers continue to look for the cure for breast cancer. Cryo-Cell recently announced research partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in researching the potential treatment of breast cancer using stem cells collected from menstrual blood. Stem cells have already been used in Treating Diseases, including numerous types of malignancies, anemia's, inherited metabolic disorders and deficiencies of the immune system. Cryo-Cell’s research partnership with the NIH is a major step towards discovering potential breast cancer therapy.

A Jersey Shore beach Vacation sure sounds excellent, don’t it? I’ve actually read good reviews from other blogs about Morey’s Piers in New Jersey. I checked their web site and guess what I found! They are currently running its annual holiday sale from December 1st to January 9th and you can get as much as 40% savings on a Season Pass to their water parks. Isn’t it amazing? Now, finding a place to stay and dine is not a problem at all. Jersey Shore and Wildwood hotels is just one of the places that you could stay for your Jersey vacation. I can’t wait to be on the beach again!

Inevitably, as a result of the radical overhaul, the links to my list of blogger friends were lost. I did not make it as HTML codes before, and so they were completely removed when I changed my layout. My apologies to my faithful readers and friends. Please bear with me, I'll eventually add you all back to my blogroll. I'd still be your constant reader, visitor and EC dropper.
Now, as for my Entrecard Logo, yes, I had it redesigned as well. It no longer features my pretty face, hehehe. My current EC logo aptly describes my idea of a sweet haven which is a beach. I hope my droppers will recognize me and still continue to give their generous drops on my blog. Cheers to all of us. Happy blogging!!!
