My breakfast bento

I haven't been feeling all that well the past couple of days. A bad ear infection was keeping me awake most nights and the pain was so intense in the left ear that I could only sleep on one side. I don't usually like to visit the doctor but am glad that I made the trip to the clinic this time, even though I had to stand outside waiting an hour to see him. I never like to sit in the clinic knowing there are all kinds of germs in there. The anti-biotics helped a lot in clearing the infection out, but even though most of the pain and swelling is gone, there is still discharge so hopefully it will dry up soon.

There was a breakfast date yesterday with 2 mums, which was cancelled at the last minute due to an impending storm, thus I ended up having breakfast at home. Of course, the storm didn't really happen in the end but we were treated to light showers instead, despite the sky being a scary black, with lightning blazing across the sky at 6am while I was up and getting ready for school.

I decided to prepare a bento for myself with chee cheong fun that I had bought the day before. While that was steaming in the wok, I made a sealed floss sandwich, packed some biscuits in, and made a cocktail bear and used a cherry tomato to fill up the gaps. The Pooh bear biscuit was bought at school fiesta while the star-shaped shortbread was a gift baked by a friend. If I am not wrong, this is only the 2nd or 3rd bento I have ever made for self. Was very pleased with the end result even though it was simple. :)

Haha, don't know why, just felt like making one. I usually am too lazy for it. But it turned out pretty cute haha. I didn't know what to do with mousey's nose and mouth. I'm not good at decorating faces. Bear bentos coming right up!
