Bento No. 100 - Totoro

This is the 100th bento that I made for E since July last year.. Can't imagine I can continue this so far.. I once wonder whether this little interest of mine can last for a long time..
Now I am pretty assured that I really love bento making.. maybe its the motivation from my son, to see his happy face when he eats his bento. :)
I think my favourite bento so far is the Totoro bento that I made early this year. So I make my 2nd Totoro bento today with hard boiled eggs.
Inside the box are also sausage bunny, grapes, pineapple and longans.
Shared this at Shannon's WFLW week 70.

Bento No. 98 - Little Chicks

Since I still have some quail eggs left, I made a nest of chicks today. Inside the box are E's favourite fruits - Grapes, Longan and Starfruit.

E's school concert is coming soon, he will be having his rehearsal next week. He seems to like it this year ( he was crying and not wanting to join the dance practice last year).

Hopefully he will have a successful performace. Year end is approaching, which means E's playschool year is coming to end.

He will be in Kindy next year.. wow.. my boy is growing up so fast..

Bento No. 96 - Lullaby Rilakkuma

Morning everyone, today i want to share another egg bento idea. Dip the hard boiled egg in light soy sauce to have a light brown shade for making Rilakkuma.
Rilakkuma is lying on his bed, snuggled under his (seaweed and cheese) blanket, getting ready to sleep.
But his eyes are still wide open, is he waiting for me to read him bedtime story?
Shared this bento at Shannon's WFLW week 68.

Want to see my Anpanman toys? :)

I was cleaning the house during last weekend, and take out one of my treasure chest. Inside were my sets of Anpanman collections.

E was so eager to help me display and arrange them in the glass cabinet. :)

Bento No. 95 - Happy Mid Autumn Festival

Happy Mid Autumn Festival! Today is the 15th on the Chinese Lunar Calendar, we will celebrate tonight with family dinner, kids playing Lanterns and eating the Mooncakes. :)

In the Lunar Calendar, tonight will be Full Moon in sight.. so I made a round egg yolk as the Moon and the egg white as the fog/cloud in the night. The remaining egg white was cut into a rabbit.

Added a piece of Red Bean paste mooncake made by my mum. Usually this piggy shape mooncake are for the kids. The traditional mooncake will be the round one.

A bento friend help to get the Angry Bird Lanterns for my Big E and Little Miss E, they are so cute!

Trip to Tip of Borneo

During the School Holidays, me and the kids went for a road trip with my parents and sister to the Northern tip of Borneo.

It was a 3 hour journey to the destination and 3 hours back, quite a long journey. Luckily the kids can take it well, just that little Miss E had a bit of car sick and throw up a bit.

It was a bright sunny day with clear blue sky and calm sea with a bit of sea breeze..

The kids enjoyed the trip very much.. little E was a bit exhausted as she insists walking by herself.. up and down the hill... tough little lady.. :)

Bento No. 94 - Little Panda

Hello my bento friends! After a week of school holidays for the kids. I am back to bentoing.. need some boost to restart my engine to make bentos again.. haha.

Today is just another simple egg bento for E, attached 2 small grapes as the ears to the egg and nori for eyes and nose. Its just simple as that.

Added cubes 2 ham and cheese sammies too.
