I’m back!!!

I just checked my last entry date, I disappeared for exactly 8 months!!!

For the second half of last year, I was still bento’ing, but partly I was busy, partly I wasn’t that inspired to do anything fanciful.

Ever since the school term started this year, I have been doing, just that been busy and haven’t updated the blog much.  I will probably do batch updating.

For today’s post, I uploaded that I made this year.  Nothing much fanciful, but they are simple and not difficult to complete on the wee early school day morning.  Some of them, especially the rice bentos, were actually lunches that I made and brought to school for my children.  For those, I had more time to do. 🙂

Bento 210 Grimace Hello Kitty

Another bento where I got the inspiration from the current Singapore’s McDonald’s promotion.

This bento ain’t one for going to school or outing, it’s just my fingers itch from no bento making, so made this for my lunch.

I wonder how my kids have the heart to eat.  After completing, it took me another 2 hours to finally take my lunch. Simply  no heart to eat the effort.

Bento 189 – I taught my cat to clean my room

Daughter has poetry recitation today.  She selected a silly but cute poem.  So did a bento related to her poem.

The poem is at the end of this post.  Very cute poem 🙂  Glad that she did pretty well for the recitation.

I taught my caught to clean my room

I taught my caught to clean my room

I taught my cat to clean my room,
to use a bucket, brush and broom,
to dust my books and picture frames,
and pick up all my toys and games.

He puts my pants and shirts away,
and makes my bed, and I should say
it seems to me it’s only fair
he puts away my underwear.

In fact, I think he’s got it made.
I’m not too happy with our trade.
He may pick up my shoes and socks,
but I clean out his litterbox.

Bento 186 u:zoosin Bento

This is a bento which is really FOR ME.  It’s not a character that the children like, but it’s something related to what I like.

u:zoosin is a character developed by one of the kpop singer that I like :P.  So those who like Kim Hyun Joong, an actor and singer from Korea, will probably know this character.

Bento 185 – A Kick Buttowski Bento

Kids are still off school.   Another bento for me!!!  (to  be eaten at home :P)

I find it a lot easier to make bento for myself.  I eat most food, so I have free reign of whatever ingredient I want, and in whatever portion I want.

Buttowski’s face is too pale.  Shouldn’t had mixed the coloring sachet from Daiso into all the rice.  Should had mixed with a smaller amount of rice.

Bento184 – Take Care Bear Bento

With 1 child officially down with HFMD, another starting to develop, and me having styessss plus ulcersssss, situation at home is not exactly upbeat.  For hygiene purpose, bento making for others is DEFINITELY out.

But but but, bento making can be therapeutic for a stressful, no appetite time like these!!!  So, I make one for myself!!! 😀

Take Cara Bear sending all his love for us 😀

For the first time, I tried these powder for my rice.  Hmmm, actually they do spice up the rice 😛  My rice did taste yummy 😛  But of course, I’m not recommending this.  Maybe once in a blue blue moon.  Credit is, despite my moodiness, I did eat well.  😉
