Bento week # 19

I've got a couple of very good buys from my recent Tokyo visit that made excellent compliments to bento and i just can't resist using them immediately, amidst my current hectic schedule!!
Plus some of the food were not meant to be kept long, so can't really delay using them up!!

This maybe just a piece of ordinary jelly in soda taste but take a look at the sea animals that were embedded inside.......so cute & interesting right !!

Next is the japanese version of FISH CAKE.
I didn't really went around looking for this, but it was an unexpected stumble at a small convenient store of a train station!!! I got very excited seeing them. And there were many other interesting characters (minnie, pooh bear, donald etc) to choose from but after checking out the expiry dates, i knew i can't afford to buy more. So i was compelled to just picked one, and that was a Mickey fishcake.


Here is the first bento after my return from Japan.

Grilled drumsticks, baby tomatoes & cutie mickey fishcakes on a pool of fried rice.

********************************************************


More fishcakes around some shaped smiley wieners!!

***********************************************************



This was a sandwich bento prepared using some newly bought cutters for our recent family outing to Sunway Lagoon.


There were also quail eggs to compliment the sandwich.


The boys had a superb time splashing water with their cousins....as it was their first time visiting the waterpark!! Sean kept yearning to come back .....




*********************************************************

Next is a weekend home bento.


a new try on the wiener cutter

pooh bear's house bread with cheese


strawberries with sugar for dipping

bo-bo cha-cha dessert

*******************************************************

Another weekend home bento.

Did the TOAST looked familiar?? An imitation over one that i had in a rest. at The Garden.
Toast served with varieties of spreads (kaya, condense milk, peanut butter & milo powder).
Verdict was the boys adored them so much!!
There was also a sausage roll at the top, cup of yakult & few more pieces of sausages!!

*********************************************************

Finally, here are 2 REAL Bento sets for myself !!


Stir fried cabbage & carrot with my no.1 favourite ingredients, chilli padi !!

Brocollis & Cauliflowers on fish balls and drunken prawns (courtesy of mom)

My 2 pieces of TULIP rice which were greeting YOU with their smiley faces & pinkish cheeks !!! smile back yeah..........'chiak' !!

*********************************************************

There was a night when i was preparing a bento for myself, my little sister who was around my house shown her interest in wanting a lunch bento too for herself !!
So i obliged & made a little extra for her.....can't beat such a nice sis leh ??

As mom was in a rush to go, i gotta fix a quick one for her.....
here was a simple one arranged for sis

sliced boiled eggs on sweet potatoes rice, some sausage, green sprouts & a pool of lettuce at the bottom with some fried garlics in the silicon cup!!!

sis was at least a little impressed but mom was jealous & commented my cookings as
"kuai seng kuai yeung" .....LOL

Here is a similar bento for myself

The only difference was i have more time to allow the rice to cool down & have them "balled up" & wrapped using the new rice ball wrapper i bought from japan ...... gee cute or not??

Hope you had enjoyed viewing some of my latest bento works !!!
