Bentolicious #072
Andrew had his swimming mid-test at school this morning. To show some supports for him, I made this froggies bento. Hope he could swim fast with his frog style, breast stroke. The little froggies were made from cucumber and the faces were decorated from crab stick and carrot. Put the froggies on the top of the rice. I used the 2 tiers round box this time. The size of the top tier (green) is smaller than the bottom tier (blue). Inside the top tier : raspberries, tenderloin beef cooked with salted black bean and onion, and stir fry veggies (chayote, corn, baby corn).


Oh my god this is just too cute!!! <3 Sooo adorable little frogs!

I love this bento so much and I love the bento-box even more! Very cute and delicious! Wish him good luck, too! <3

Lia, I love your froggies! They are all so cute and perfect for St Patty's Day too! :D

@Token : Thanks a lot Token for the nice comment and the wishes! He just got home and said he did well ;)

@Susan Yuen : Thanks a lot Susan! Didn't think about St. Patty's Day because we didn't celebrate it here ... I should put the shamrock in the middle hehehe :D

Hi Lia,

Chanced upon your blog and loved all the cute bentos you made! :)

Can I check with you, how do u cut the froggies' hands? Is it by cutter too?

Tks for sharing all your tips too! I learnt so much reading them! :)

God Bless!


@tona-mama : Thanks a lot Tona for your kind comment! I was cutting the froggies' head with small bear cutter, for their hands with small round cutter then cut freehand at the edge like tulip shapes. Hope this will help :)

Hello Lia,

I came across your blog from my blogger's friend. You have a wonderful blog and I love all your bentos very much. I hope that one day I can be as creative as you and make one for my little darling.


Oh dear, the frogs are SUPER cute!! And I like the flower in the center too! So perfectly done!

Oh dear, those froggies are super duper cute, somemore got music note beside.. ^_^ ..Hope Andrew can swim faster than the froggie after having this bento..:P

Aw, those froggies are so cute! I'm sure they are a great support for Andrew ;)
And this Round box is really great! I think round bento boxes are the best ^-^ They make every meal look great in it. To sad I don't have one =/

@Vanessa : hahaha ... it's like Forest Gump's movie except that one is run Forest run :D Thanks a lot Vanessa!

@Rachel Hei : Thanks a lot Rachel! He actually got his swimming test before the lunch time. But he peeked the bento when I took the picture :)

@Lil'chan : Thanks a lot Lil'chan! I don't have much round boxes too. Most bento boxes that I got are rectangle and square shapes :)

OMG ... cuteness overload ! :o) Love your froggies and I'm sure Andrew will ace his test with such expert swimming allies in his bento :o)

@Ceinwyn / Ingrid : Thanks a lot Ingrid! He passed the test but the score will be handing out early April.

these froggies and their lily pad are soooo cute lia! i'm sure this really encouraged andrew... i hope he did great on his test! the veggies and beef sound yummy too, and the raspberries are a nice bright pop of color!

These are the cutest and most cheerful looking frogs ever :)

Mmm, those look like delicious raspberries! I love your frogs and even your beef with beans and onions looks so beautifully arranged.

@Angeleyes : Thanks a lot! Using cutters helped me so much in saving time to prepare these froggies :)

@javapot : Thanks a lot Javapot! Very appreciate your effort to post your comment here. Probably my blog got wet because those froggies were splashing the water hahaha ... :D

Oh my charaben master, Lia!
What cheerful froggies! I'm sure that he fully showed his ability with mom-made cheering bento!
I'd love have the tenderloin beef!
