Bento 209 Lettuce Princess Bento

This week is a very tiring week.  Son injured his knee and was on cast and away from school.  Whenever any of my children on MC at home, I will be super busy.  Didn’t realised how exhausted I was until last night.  Plus I normally naps in the morning, with son at home, I didn’t nap at all!

Well, good that today is the last day of school! So last school bento for ther term/semester.  Well, I just may do some home bento for myself 🙂

Bento today is a very happy Lettuce Princess who is having school holiday 🙂  Food was Chinese Char Siew Bao

Bento 208 Hello Kitty Hamburglar Bento

Don’t know to love or hate McDonald’s.  Everytime they come up with such Hello Kitty promotion, I will go crazy over collecting them all.

Anyway,  I nearly had to send my gal to school cause I was nearly not in time to finish this up!  The ribbon was the last, spells the lousy work.  Other than that, pretty happy with it 🙂

Inside croissant is nutella.  They go well!!! Yum!!!

Bento 206 Hello Kitty Bento

My sister-in-law helped me get a fantastic bento book by Akinoichigo from Japan that came complete with stencils and many instructions.  Totally love the book!  Today’s full bodied Hello Kitty made with the help from the book 🙂

Bento 205 Woof Woof Bento

Another simple simple one.   Doggie bento for both.  But son’s is actually his breakfast, he doesn’t want to pack anything for recess.  So did a simple deco for his breakfast on the go instead.

For son’s the white parts are bread actually.  For gal’s, they are the white part of kamaboko.  Her box also has grapes, hidden behind the ‘dog’.  1 bun seems little, but I rather give her a variety than 2 buns, so topped with corn, grapes and dried apricot.
