Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

Mr Furball bento

Leave a comment


It’s not easy to prepare food for Tz’s lunch as he has only 30 mins to finish his meal in school. As a 3 year old, he is still mastering the cutleries, getting better but he still prefers to use his fingers. So I tried to combine all the ingredients in easy-to-grab  combo. The mini skewers are very convenient for use for any kebabs and they look neat in the box and double up as a utensil.

Sleeping furball – I can’t decide if it’s a lion or a merino sheep. Tz thinks it’s a lion. It’s simply onigiri coated with Bonita flakes. I placed  a round piece of cellophane paper on the face portion while coating. This will keep the face clean . Nori for eyes and nose

Meat roll – crab stick and carrots wrapped in  think pork slices

squid skewer – Tz favorite.

Hi, I have been making bento lunch boxes for my toddler son for a year. Its a challenge everyday to think of new bento ideas to excite him. The creations are endless and took a lot of trial and errors. But most importantly, his bento lunches must deliver 3 key goals: exciting presentation (eye appeal), exciting tastes (texture & ingredients) and exciting adventures (dare to try; food play). Recently, I started making my husband lunch bentos too for work after he got envious of seeing beautiful bentos prepared by Japanese wives on Japanese TV network. I am learning and picking up skills from many talented bento makers everyday to improve myself. Here are some of my creations I would like to share with you. Apart from bentos, there some travel stories and little things i enjoy doing related to food and culture in this blog. So enjoy and share your thoughts with me.
