Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

hi..eee…YA! Karate Penguin

Processed with MoldivTz is down with a fever for a few days with little appetite. I was happy that he requested for noodle soup today and he wanted something cute on it. He wanted an animal, I could not refuse him even after a whole night of no sleeping looking after him as he was restless.

So I did a “Karate Penguin” and the first word Tz said when he saw it was “HI…EEE…YA!”, so I made up a story of the penguin eating lots of noodle to fight against the bad fever. Haa…. it was easy enough to trick him into eating.

Karate Penguin:

Noodle- flat noodle stick cooked in home-made vegetable stock.

Penguin- steamed minced prawn and meat patties for head and body, fish cake and nori for face, hands, head band and legs.

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.
