www.ongling.comDid this onigiri portrait of Tz a while back. I showed this to one of my girlfriends and she commented that it’s weird to eat yourself. Haha… I didn’t think in that perspective… Can be quite funny. Imagine making food looking like the people you don’t like and bite into them to release your discomfort, it’s a good stress or anger release method, eh?

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.
