Bentolicious #113
My boy is staying at home today because he has high fever and is coughing. He told us last night during dinner time that he couldn't finish his dinner because he didn't feel well. But we thought he just pulled a trick for not finishing his dinner. The fever went up last night and I asked my husband to move him to our bedroom so I could keep checking his temperature. The weather has been really bad last week, very hot and dry. Sometimes the weather changed very quick from very hot in the morning and raining in the afternoon. I made the appointment with his doctor this afternoon, hope the fever will go down today.
I didn't have any plan in my head to make bento for my girl, but then in the morning I figured it out to just quickly decorated 2 quail eggs for her bento. In the other box : grape tomatoes, jelly in the silicone cups, acar (Indonesian's cucumber pickles), yellow tofu, and 3 chicken meat balls mixed with carrots and corns.
