Bento Fun #324 – Flower Onigiri Bento

Looks like I have been slacking on posting bento again. ๐Ÿ˜›

Have not been packing a lot of bento since Darrius did not want to have bento but just simple sammies wrapped in ZipLock bag! However, I will try to slot in one or two within the week.

There was some left over rice so decided to make some onigiri for him…



Mixed the rice with some pink furikake and wrapped them up into the shape of flower petals. For the centre, I cut a cylinderย out of carrot. Gave him some cherries, strawberry and blueberries too. No meat or proteinย for the day!


Bento Fun #290 – Police-Police Bento!

Hello all! So fast it is already mid week and tomorrow, Penang is celebrating its 2nd year of being declared as a Heritage City by UNESCO. For that, Darrius gets an off day but hubby will still have to work since his company is not observing the day. Too bad… and tomorrow is his BIG day too. ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh well…

Did not make any bento for the past two days since I did not have any fresh breads at home so I just packed him some cereals which he requested. I only went groceries shopping yesterday so I can only pack a bento this morning.

Like usual, nothing comes into mind till I brought out all the stuff. Suddenly it triggered me to do the police cars which I have told Darrius a while back that I’ll make for him.



I found a triangle onigiri mold in my box and decided to use it to punch out the shape as the size is just right. Made two cheese sammies with the white bread. I punched a few round shape from the bread crust for the wheels. Then cutting two strips of nori to wrap the sammie before fixing those wheels up with some round cheese cutouts and jam. The windows were cheese cut with a round cutter and cut into 4 parts then sprayed with blue Color Mist.ย There are some strawberries and some red seedless grapes as desserts.

I’ve added this to WFLW too.

That’s all for today and I hope you’ll have a great day! ๐Ÿ˜€

Bento Fun #287 – Cheerful Onigiri Bento

Good Afternoon all!

It has been really hot here and I am hoping it will rain a little. Then again, the sun is good too since I have never ending loads of laundry to clear! I have been washing since the day I came back but the bucket always gets full the moment I look at it! *weird*

Today, Baby nap late in the morning and Darrius was not hungry when he got back from school so I decided to make a bento since I have a little time on hand. Have not been packing any lunch bento for a while since the last one which was for the Dutch Lady Contest a while back. Did not do anything fancy… just 2 triangle onigiri with some happy smiles!



Besides the onigiri, there is a Lemon Salt Chicken Kebab which I made a while back that has been frozen for convenience. A few rectangular pieces of French beans with shredded carrot egg omelette, a yellow cherry tomato and half a strawberry.

That’s all for now and I hope you’ll have a good day ahead! ๐Ÿ˜€

Bento Fun #279 – A Hearty Bento

Good’ay all!

For those who celebrated Labor Day, how was your long weekend? We took the opportunity to have a short getaway in KL and spent some time with my family. Though everyone enjoyed (especially the feasting part) but I suffered quite a bit since baby was rather cranky on most nights causing me to lose sleep. On average I only get to sleep less than 3 hours each night for that 3 nights we were there.

I was so tired when we returned yesterday and thus, did not make any bento for Darrius. This was a bento I made on last Thursday but was too busy to post up. I am still having a very tired brain… but I do hope to make something tomorrow.



I bought another new pocket sammy maker… this time was the one that can make a big heart! ๐Ÿ˜› I just can’t resist buying gadgets… heh! If you’ve noticed, I finally got the Shinkansen bento box too which a dear friend helped me get during her recent visit to Hong Kong. Thanks Jacss! ๐Ÿ˜€

It was a heart pocket sammy filled with meat floss and mayo and to make it less plain, I cut another small heart from the bread crust to give it more colors. There are some strawberries and green seedless grapes to complete the box. Very simple. ๐Ÿ™‚

Bento Fun #269 – Little Stars Bento

Good Morning to all~

I did not get to sleep well again last night… baby is still on her cranky mood and the screaming has yet to stop… I really wonder when she will outgrow this phase! I so wanted to go back to sleep but my active mind kept me awake… partly because I was still excited with our up coming trip… ๐Ÿ˜›

When the mind is busy with other things, the normal stuff will sure to get side-lined and thus, we have a speedy bento today! ๐Ÿ˜†



I just made a chocolate raisin bread with cheese sammy and cut them into small strips to fit into this Anpan Man bento box. Added some cheese cutouts to ‘cute-tify’ the bento and I was done! ๐Ÿ˜† There are some cubed kiwi and blueberries in the silicon cup with some cherry tomatoes too.

Happy weekend everyone~



I just read about the 2nd earthquake which struck Japan late last night…. this time very close to the nuclear plant in Fukushima. Luckily there was no records of any casualty or any major destructions… My heart goes out to all the people of Japan… I pray that Mother Nature will stop her little game as she is moving about too much and it is about time she take a rest now!
