Pregnant Jill Duggar Travels To Central America

Fans of TLC's “Counting On” are slamming Jill Duggar (Dillard) after traveling with her husband and 22 month old son to Central America to do missionary work there. Jill revealed on her blog that although the family has only been in Central America for a little over a week, there are already many different health scares that have plagued them.

“The first few days we were here, amidst the settling in and busy schedules, Israel (the Duggar/Dillard's 22 month old son) and I were battling colds and coughs and Israel developed a low grade fever, which we quickly noticed was a result of an eye infection.” However, fans didn't think it was a very good idea that Jill and Derrick were traveling to Central America at all, seeing that Jill is pregnant with the couple's second child.

The family is doing mission work in El Salvador, which is a country that has been hit hard by the Zika virus. The country recommends that women who live there wait until 2018 to get pregnant due to the Zika virus. Fans of the show have been sounding off, saying that it was not safe for Jill and Derrick to travel to the country, and that Jill is putting not only her own health at risk, but the health of her whole family as well.

Matthew the #hugot Singer

If you are a follower on our Instagram account, you may have watched this #hugot song of Matthew.

I called it #hugot song because Daddy and I will sing it every time we'll hear someone who's being emotional. In other words, humuhugot.

When you hear it's lyric "kung wala ka ng maintindihan, kung wala ka ng makapitan... kumapit ka sa akin, hindi kita bibitawan...", it's as if you are saving a person right? So when we know someone who's getting too much emotional, we remind him or her of the song. Which will make him/her laugh so we'll save him/her from crying, haha.

So that's why we call it #hugot song. But seriously, my son loves to sing. He loves singing those teleserye theme songs and even commercial jingles like this one.

He can be a singer or a total performer someday right? As early as now, we give him our full support for his love of music. Daddy bought him a piano while I am planning to buy him a guitar birthday gift. I have yet to find guitar store just like the music stores dayton ohio. But hopefully before his birthday comes, I already bought one.

Does your kids love to sing too?

Century Tuna Burger Patties

I must admit, Daddy used to cook better than me. Pero dati yun dahil mommy maye cooks na, haha. Sinisipag lang naman and also since I want to prepare school baon for my son, I made burger patties using Century Tuna.

Making Century Tuna burger patties is just quick and easy. Here are what you need:

1 can Century Tuna Flakes in Oil
1 piece egg
3 spoon floor

1/2 cup bread crumbs (approximate only)
1 piece carrot (grated)

1 stalk celery (finely chopped)
1 small onion (finely chopped)
pepper and salt

How to cook:

1. Separate the oil from the tuna flakes and mashed.
2. Beat the egg and mix well with the rest of the ingredients. Chill for one hour.
3. Then make your burger patties and fry.

Fry at low heat lang because tuna burger patties is easy to cook lang. By the way I used our JML Stone-ware Platinum Pan so I can only use less oil. Parang pan grilled lang.

4. When the patties are brown na, you can put it over paper towel to sop up excess oil.

That's it. Arrange it in a burger bun with sliced cheese and a little mayonnaise. You'll have this yummy tuna burger na. You can add slices of cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce too.

Actually, you can also turn this to tuna nuggets. Add grated cheese lang and for sure your kids will love it.

O sha, I'll share more easy recipe pa next time. Lalo na sinisipag akong magluto, haha.

Save Yourself from Tax Season Stress with TurboTax from Groupon Coupons

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I was on leave today because of mommy duties. My little boy was sick. He has fever and stuffy nose. I thought he can get over it in one day just like he used to but to my worries he got fever until this morning, 

See that gloomy, sad face? So I decided to file an emergency leave and brought him to his Pediatrician Doctor. Good thing, the doctor says his lungs is clear and his sickness might me due to his colds that doesn't come out. Because of that the doctor gave him antibiotics and cough medicine. Daddy and I bought it right then for his fast recovery. It was a great relief to finally see his pleasant face again.

Learning To Play Piano

Playing piano is one of my dreams. When I was younger, I wanted to have my own real piano. But we can't afford to buy a piano that time. So I contented my self with a small piano cake my cousin gave us and I promised that one day I will a real one. That's why when I already afford to buy a piano, I bought one for my son who's just 2 years old then. (Read: Photostory: Our Little Pianist

But it's only after 4 years that he'll be able to play his first ever piano piece and guess what is it...

Yeah, it's Twinkle-twinkle Little Star. For a first timer, it's the easiest piano piece to teach right? And I was right because after a few minutes of tickling, he managed to play it on his piano. 

I think it's time to enroll him to a piano lesson class, especially summer break is coming. I know he's now ready to learn to play piano and I was just an excited mom, haha. Also, I can see he's very interested with music and so I will support him in his journey. I wish to see him recording his own song in a music studio equipped with dbx driverack at MF.

I better get ready right? Is your kids into music too?
