Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

Moon & Stars Bento

Leave a comment

Www.ongling.comWoke up early this morning, slept late last night, I was still very drowsy with my mind again a BIG BLANK, “what’s for Tz’s lunch today?”. I switched on the iPad and this song was playing, the Moon Song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9teBt8bu5OY. It fitted the mood I was in in the wee hours of the morning before dawn where everyone was still asleep, just me and the song. Its a moment I treaure very much after becoming a mom.

The song led to this bento, Tz looking up at the stars and moon. I remembered seeing a similar image on a calendar some time ago. Everything is done freehand, not thinking much about the composition when I was still SO SLEEPY 💤 . Where’s my double ☕️☕️?

Background sky – potato lasagne layered with minced meat patty and furikake, nori flakes, fish powder and candy stars (running out of time, ha ha, so i cheated and used ready made stars. Well, Tz won’t mind if there is candy inside his meal)

Hills – steamed minced meat patty

Moon – cheese

Tz – sushi, fish cake & nori

Tree branch – Sushi and shoyu.

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.
