Anpanman

Yippee, I finally received my wares... waited a week for them and was panicking because it was taking too long. Am truly in love with this man. Hehe. And I love the picks as well. The postman delivered them this morning, and I wasted no time in putting them to use. Made a teatime bento of donuts & golden kiwi for princess, after her ballet class. The bento turned out to be smaller than expected but it's very cute. It's also different in design from the other die cut bentos, with a piece in the middle going round the entire bento, where the cover ends. Ok, it's confusing. Only I can understand what I am jabbering about haha.

This bento below was served at dinner. A gift from a friend... the Cinnamoroll bento comes in a bag with a cooler pack, and it's really handy and compact. It has a main compartment which holds a pair of chopsticks as well. There are two smaller compartments and they all fit into a beautiful bag. I thought I had taken a picture of it but I thought wrong. Oh well... another day then.

Tonight's dinner was Jap curry, again. I know, I know, just lazy me. Cherry tomatoes adorned with a top hat and a crown. I wanted to put faces on them but princess was grumbling that she was very hungry, and why wasn't dinner ready! Too bad then. :P

We were over at my mum's place the Sunday before last, and princess accompanied her to the supermarket and tried these yummy fingers. She got grandma to buy them for her, convincing her to try them and that they were very good. Haha. Grandma bought two packets, one for each of them. I baked them today, as I didn't realize I had run out of cooking oil, and they were alright, not fantastic. I believe they would have tasted much better fried.

I didn't even keep track of my blog's birthday and only remembered it a while ago. So, happy belated 2nd birthday, dear blog. I'm sorry to have neglected you quite a lot lately. Going through the archives, I see that my blog was much more interesting and colourful in the early days. I have stopped baking and only cook once in a while now, so not much to blog about. I do miss baking, and hope to go back to it again, once my house can be rid of those creepy crawlies. Argh!!

Hi
May I know where do u get all your cute bento boxes & accessories?

SIG said...

Wong - I'm sorry I didn't get back to you... Some of my bento boxes are gifts from Japan, and some I pick them up as I see them, sometimes in some little shops. You can try also Sanrio shops located in Harbourfront, Isetan Scotts, etc. Some accessories I get them from trading with friends or online. Hope that helps.
