I have just received  a few new bento boxes I purchased online from this ebay seller, yannisyly ( , selling all kinds of bento boxes and accessories. Very good service, resent the package to me at no cost as I was overseas when it arrived. It was sent back to Hong Kong). Tz loves Shinkansen trains, the site has a few models of Shinkansen to choose from, I was greedy so I got 2.

Today I prepared his lunch in one of the new boxes. Double layers, each with its own lid (very important for hygiene) and an extra thin layer between the panda cover and the first lid for chopsticks. Love this box. The compartments are quite long, my usual portion of lunch preparation for Tz was not sufficient to fill up the box. So it looked slightly bare today. Will work in more the next time. Tz, enjoy your new lunch box!

Lunch time

Cat Onigiri – White sushi rice and coloured rice with ketchup and shoyu; Ham for ears; Nori and ham for mouth; cheese and nori for eyes.

Seafood layer – Oven baked honey Japanese Kabocha layered with steamed tiger prawns

Pork nuggets – marinated with korean anchovy sauce, shoyu, ginger and miring. coated with potato flour.

Vegetables – steamed with shoyu

Snack time

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.
