Bento 128 - Sausage Bears macaroni

Finally another chance to make a cute bento today and I felt so good to be able to post it up.  I made macaroni as usual as its E's favourite and easy to consume at school.

Decorate it with 2 sausage bears, cut the sausages into few rings, cut a slit in between, and insert the another thinner slice of sausage as ears. 
Hope this will bring a smile on his face today!

Bento 126 - Egg Mayo & Ham Sammies

Another rush Monday! A no fuss, simple bento like this saves me a lot of time. Made a few mini sammies filled with Ham, Egg Mayo, Lettuce, tomatoes and Cheese. Can't bear with plain bento, so add in a few Rilakkuma and friends pick to brighten up a bit. ;)
Inside the box are also sausage hearts and grapes.

Bento 125 - Little bears sandwich buns

Happy Monday everyone! Start the week with these egg mayo and chicken sandwich buns with cute little bears popping up to greet you morning!
I love sandwiches a lot, so as E. He has requested extra chicken, so I added in a few more cubes of roasted chicken in the box.
Hope this bento will boost up his energy for his classes today!

Bento 124 - Ouch! Its Mr. Bump

I carried on with my Mr. Men theme today, another popular character - Mr. Bump!
He is a careless and clumsy little guy, tripping and falling all the time..
Luckily Mr. Bump fell onto a bed of macaroni today.. lol..
I hope E will be more careful when he is playing , not injuring himself like Mr. Bump always did.. ;)
I boiled 2 tiny farm fresh egg, dye one of them with a tiny dot of blue food colour in a glass of water. Slice a section from the top and bottom of the blue egg, and replace by a section of the white egg for the bandage. Cut a small piece from back of the blue egg for the hands and legs.
Hope you all have a Lucky day just as Mr. Bump today! :)

My Boy is a big fan of Mr. Men and Little Miss, I bought the first set of Mr. Men's book collection and he was hooked since then. We have read the stories over and over again.

My first Mr. Men bento will be Mr. happy, he has the most pleasant character. He is always cheerful, optimistic and with a kind heart. Hope E will learn from him. :)

Bento 117 - It's LEGO

I am pretty excited when preparing my son's bento today.. I just got my Lego Bento boxes as a gift from sister back from US. Big E loves LEGO, he likes to play with the Lego blocks since young.
The Lego box are bigger than the usual bento box that I prepared for him, so I need more food to fill up the box. :)
I place ham, cheese and crab stick on sandwiches and cut in squares and rectangles as the Lego blocks. Press some circles on them as the Lego buttons to place on top. There is a cube cheese decorated as the Lego Man too..
Inside the box are some sausages , crab sticks in the tiny Lego box and grapes.
I find the Lego box covers very tightly, if insert the tiny Lego box with its cover , it will be a bit difficult for E to open up the box. So I left out the cover for the tiny Lego box.
E is loving the Pirates in the Carribean Lego toys too, also a gift from his beloved aunty (my sis). Don't we just heart the mini Lego Captain Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Swann?

Pirates in the Carribean is my one of my favourite movies, i watched all of them. And Johnny Depp is my favourite actor too..;) I love his movie since " who is eating Gilbert Grape" and "Edward Scissorhands".

Inside the box are also a cup of corn, grapes and crabsticks.

Bento 115 - Smurfy Valentine

I have been wanting to try on some egg sheets again. I made some blue egg sheets with a tiny drop of blue food colouring on egg white and pan fried it with low heat.
But I still can't make a smooth one, there are still bubbles on the surface.
However I just use them to make Smurfs as the sky blue is just right. Cut two pieces of sammies by using round cutter. Then place the oval shape egg sheets on the sammies for the face. Trim the bread as the Smurf hats and Cheese for Smurfette's blond hair.
Add a few grapes and a mini mandarin orange with a ring on it. The heart was cut out from strawberry swissroll. I have also put in a half boiled egg in another layer of the bento box too.. but didn't take a photo of it.
Most probably I won't be free to make cute bento for my boy next week, so wish you all Happy Valentine's!

Bento 114 - Happy Dragon 2012

Happy Chinese New Year, Gong Xi Fa Cai! We are back to bento making after E's week long Chinese new year holiday.
Both kids fell sick during the new year celebration. So I was practically busy looking after them. I was so worried when E has high fever one night. Glad both of them are ok now just before the school starts.. whew..
Our local radio station- My FM has released a Chinese New Year Music Video - featuring the mascot - Happy Dragon 2012.
Both E love the song so much, they requested to play the VCD on the car everyday for almost a week now.
So to impress my boy, I made him his favourite Happy Dragon! Added a few rainbow marshmallows as treats, they look like the colourful fireworks display throughout the Chinese New Year celebration, don't they?
Wishing all a healthy and happy year of Dragon!

The Chinese New Year is getting closer.. just can't wait to celebrate with the kids and family!

Bento 112 - Pikachu & Mijumaru

Hello and Happy New Year everyone! I feel great to be able to back to my bento making routine again. Actually E started school last week, but i was too tied up in my work so i just make simple bento without posting up here.
I was able to breath a little this week, so i make up my mind I must at least make one cute bento for E. :)
He was watching Pokemon cartoons recently, so i decided to make the popular Pikachu and Mijumaru pokemon monsters.
E was delighted but demanded I should make a more detail pokemon monsters next time, with the body and tail..haha..
alright, alright.. maybe my little ones has high expectation on my bento creations. maybe he didn't know his mama is trying her very best to make a decent bento for him.
