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!

Bento 113 - Panda lookalike

Made E's favourite egg, cheese & sausage sammies for his school snack today. Hope he likes this little panda which I still cannot convinced myself that he looks like Panda.. lol.. well.. wait till me ask E what he thinks later.
Inside the box there is also a mini honey orange which is only available once a year during the Chinese New Year.
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.
