As a beginner in Bento making, I was quite happy and proud for the Friendly chicks that I made. The used of Nori seaweed is excellent in adding character and design.
What I need to learn next is how to prepare a balance diet
, not just a fun and interesting design (way to go!).
Here\’s a breakfast bento
for my preschooler who\’s practicing a dance number for their upcoming United Nation\’s day
First ever use of rice molds? just perfect!
Hmn, it\’s always nice to have some improvements, agree?
This would be my very first Bento creation featured in this blog! I labeled this as my Bento #1, so expect more Bento display for my upcoming posts.
I started with this easy to prepare Bento snack, thanks to my \”animal friends\” sheet that adds up color and design to my not-so-healthy (I know!) baon for my preschooler.
I may not be doing this regularly, but I do hope to reach up to Bento #50,
so as to make full advantage of using my Bento accessories
which I purchased online, straight from Japan.
Blog hopping becomes a hobby and considered my way of connecting to online acquaintances or people I considered instant friends. We share experiences, and new finds as well as getting help on things we love and enjoy doing. It\’s good to know that there are real people who can answer your query on almost anything you want to know, from advice, feedback, and where to buy stuff. Today\’s modern technology truly makes our life easier! (like?)
On one of my blog hopping routine, I met Anney
who gives me an inspiration to come up with a \’Bento-ing\’
project for my B. I envied all her Bento works and find myself visiting Daiso
(Japan Store) in Festival Mall, Alabang to buy my first Bento Accessories:
|2 sets: Toy Story spoon & fork
10 pcs. Matryoshka design food picks
Bunny and Bear rice molds
Bento lunchboxes with soup spoon
|I got really excited and opened all of them before I even realized to take photos =P
A week later, I manage to drop by at Saizen
in Robinson\’s Place Manila to buy these:
|Cookie Cutter and Food knife decorator @ Php88 each
And when I went to Baclaran to shop for school uniform and other stuff, this one immediately caught my attention:
|Mickey Bento Lunch Box for Php100
That\’s not all! I ended checking out 18 items on ebay
to help me get started with my Bento creations and patiently waiting for the delivery of my \’new toys\’
where I can have fun while creating healthy lunch for my B. Honestly, I\’m thrilled and excited to make my very first Bento, but decided to wait until all my accessories was delivered.
Husband ask why I bought more than one lunchbox and commented that \”one is enough\”. I wonder what his reactions be when he found out my order in ebay (and its cost!). Well, there are things that only mommies knows and understands (agree?). ahihi
