Bentolicious #104
Back to bento making again. Everything seems to be back to normal since the kids are back to the school today. My daughter starts her first day in Grade 5 and my son in Grade 2. They are excited with some of the new friends and the new teachers in their class.

I have been taking long break to post for my blog. So have to get my lazy nerve working properly again :)

Today's bento is a little happy elephant. Crossed the road safely to the school. I made it from egg sheets, carrot, crab stick, and nori. Inside the box : Chinese cabbage stir fry, black bean garlic chicken, omelet, broccoli, and grape tomatoes.


Yay! So nice to see your cheerful bento again Lia. Happy 1st day to the kids too; it must be fun for them to go back with their friends. Happy for mom too :)

I love this 3D elephant, I have not ventured into 3D images, but should give it a try. :)

I must find one day and make the egg sheet as your tutorial, hopefully I can make a smooth one like yours!

@James : Thanks a lot James! Very appreciate your comment here :)

@bentobird : Thanks a lot Jenn! Hope kids are doing great for the whole school year too :)

@Kids Dream Work : I was absent to post bento for a while but I'm back now :D You are also one of my inspiring bento friends. Thanks a lot Ai Ping for being such a supportive bento friends (^.^)

welcome back, Lia! remind me to practice on egg sheet again! never succeed to have it as nice as yours....cute elephant :-D

@Journal Mommy Yenny : Thanks a lot Yen! Practice makes perfect hahaha ... I'm sure you can do it :)

The elephant is so, so cute! This is a great back to school bento! Our school has a little over a month before we are back. Good to have you back. The lighting in this photo is really good.

I didn't get the Yum-Yum Bento Box Book yet.

@Lyndsey : Thanks a lot Lyndsey! I thought it was a little bit to dark :) It seems I have to try different spots to find the best one. I'm so sorry for the delay for your bento book. I sent it on June, 30. I will check it tomorrow morning with my post office and let you know later.

Nice to see you back Lia! The elephant looks absolutely adorable and the rest of the bento looks yummy and filling. :)

Hi Lia, Sorry I'm late again. I don't know why I'm getting busier these days, hope everything can get back to normal next week.
I love that 3D elephant, looks like this cutie is enjoying the fun on the road :)

@Kuusou : Thanks a lot Kuusou for your nice comment!

@Anncoo : Thanks a lot Anncoo! Please take care and don't get sick on your busier days. Missed your yummy post :)

This is too adorable! You are so creative, Lia. The elephant looks wonderful and I am amazed at the way you made the crosswalk and the signal. It's crazy to think that a piece of art like this will just get gobbled up at lunch. But I guess that makes us appreciate each one that much more. :-) And the other ingredients sound delicious too! Welcome back to bentos.

cute little elo...
