Octonauts Bento In A Rush
www.ongling.comUpon Tz’s request last night, I made him a Octonauts themed bento. Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to arrange the items properly or add dividers & lettuce to frame the bento but he was equally ecstatic. Phew! So long he had his buddies, Barnacles & Kwazii.

Octonauts Bento
Kwazii – sushi rice, face-tomago, nose-cheese & sausage, freckles-seasame seeds, the rest is nori
Barnacles – sushi rice, face-hanpen surimi, nose-cheese & hanpan, the rest is nori
Whale shark – sushi rice, shiitake mushroom
Meat balls with breadcrumbs, shell pasta, sausage and edamame

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.
