Bentolicious #035
Hot day, no wind, very dry ... led me to very uninspired and bored. Sometimes the weather affect our mood, don't you think? Lately we have a very strange weather. It should be rainy season by now, but this week turns out to be very hot and dry. I turned on my iPod then picked SS501's album (SS501 is a boys band from Korea, very famous and love their songs). Tried to switch my mood :o)

Inside today's bento were : seaweed rolls, orange chicken (the sauce was inside the rabbit container), baby zucchini with carrot on the top. Sprinkled the rice with fish furikake, and planted some flower eggs on the rice. On the top of the flower egg was quail egg sliced around 3mm and decorated with nori. I preferred to use my kitchen scissor to make the flower egg rather than to use knife. It was easier to get a neat cut with a scissor.


those egg flowers are so cool, thanks for the scissor tip! the baby zucchini are super cute, too. what a sunny happy bento, yay!

@megan : Thanks a lot Megan, love to read your comment :o)

That rabbit container is super cute!!! your bento is always make me smile :):)

WoW Lia Chen, This is really pretty :D Hope I can do it like yours.

Lovely bento Lia! Everything is super cute and happy... I like the sunny flower face and teeny zucchini. Hope you get a nice day tomorrow!

Fabulous bento box. I've alway admired the egg flower technique. Your bentos make me smile. How is your little boy? Feeling better I hope!

Lia Chen, weather is Malaysia is just opposite. It rains almost everyday and thus causes bad traffic jam in KL.

You bento skill are as good as those Japanese Mama.... I love your bento, dream one day I can have one of it (^_^)

Hot and dry ~.~ can't imagine it here. It's cold. The mountains around me are cowered with snow already ^^"
But your bento let the sun shine for me ;) But a question: What's around the surimi?

Love the egg flowers...They look like the big poofy bows on christmas presents!

@hapabento : Thanks a lot Debra ... Andrew is ok now, how about you? Are you feeling better?

@Vanessa : It sounds like in Jakarta, rain always causes bad traffic jam and flood too. Thanks a lot Vanessa for your kind words ... hope I can keep improving my skills as I got so many blogger friends (including you) that are so good in doing bento, cooking and baking. Me? so much to learn lah hehehe :o)

@Lil'chan : I'm dreaming to have that transporter in Star Trek movie so we can visit each other in a split of a second hahaha ... The thing around the surimi is seaweed roll, taste like kamaboko. I got it from the frozen section at supermarket, come in small pack and usually used for shabu-shabu :o)

@Angi : Thanks a lot Angi! Thinking about Christmas gift already? hehehe ... :o)
