Bentolicious #137
My twins niece and nephew were celebrating their 1st birthday last Sunday. They were born 3 months premature but now are very healthy. My sister prepared the birthday party with the Little Twin Stars theme from Sanrio. So I thought, it is a good idea to put Little Twin Stars in the bento too. I used colorful egg sheets, nori, and fish sausage to make them. If they are here, I will definitely send the 2 bento for them. Unfortunately they live far away ... so perhaps when I visit them next time and they are big enough to eat solid food then I will make bento for them. I was in a hurry this morning and just took the picture in my kitchen with a wrong setting in camera. So this time the picture become a little bit pinkies. Can you also spot another mistake I made in this picture?
Inside the box : sauteed tofu in dark soy sauce, sauteed veggies (peapods, corns, red paprika ), and prawn dumplings. The box was pretty deep, so I put 5 dumplings inside.

Just updated this post with the 2 pictures that my sister just emailed me tonight. The twins are Brandon and Natalie. On their 1st birthday and wearing the Mickey and Minnie Mouse clothes from us. They are super cute!


oh..this bento is so "Lia"..
total cuteness..
what is the tips to make such bright blue and pink egg sheets?

Happy birthday to your niece and nephew, Lia...hope they always be healthy. Carrying twins is a tough job that I had it myself.
Nice blue and pink color for the hair!
Love the overall bento :)
he he he..I am not so good in picture taking, for me your picture looks fine :b

@Bobo : Thanks a lot Bobo! I add more corn starch so the color will come out brighter :)

@Journal Mommy Yenny : Thanks a lot Yen! Always love to read your super nice comment. You are right, taking care twins is like double jobs for everything. But my sister enjoys it :)

Hi Lia, mistake? mhmm i dont know but i do know i'm loving it!they are so cute..

Super cute twin stars! lovely! I cannot see any mistake but only see pretty and nice bento here...haha.

@3h'smom : I actually misplaced the star wand. It should be Lala (girl) that hold it not Kiki (boy) hehehe ... But thanks a lot for your kind comment! Let's just pretend that Kiki is borrowing the star wand from Lala :D

Lucunyaaaa... :D
Begitu bilang ada kesalahan lain aku langsung nyari2, memperhatikan dengan seksama, trus aku pikir karena Lala nggak keliatan tangannya. Ternyata karena Kiki yang bawa tongkat bintang :D

@Emily Ng : You are so sweet! Thanks a lot Emily :)

@Sysyl : Inilah akibat telat bangun, semuanya diburu-buru sampai nggak ngeh kalo posisi tongkatnya salah hehehe ... Thanks a lot yah Syl!

happy born twins niece and nephew day mba lia^^.
I wish i am become one of them to get first taste on your preety cute bento. LOL.

Kindly, want to ask you where did you buy cute mold and lovely bento tools with cheap price offcourse?

Thank you

Oh.. kids grow so fast! 1 year old for both!! oh my... soon they are coming alone by plane for a stay with you ^_^.

Happy birthday to them and to the lovely parents! ( I also congratulate the parents too.. one more year being a parent needs celebrating! XD ahahah )

So cute Little twin stars! I don´t think the mistake is so important! Lala lent it to her bro ^_^.
And the star wand! so lovely pick!

@3snahousedesign : Thanks a lot Esna! I know you can just perfectly make one. I wish I can tell you where to get cheap bento tools here. I'm struggling to find it too so I just bought my bento tools from online stores and Daiso. Sometimes the shipping fee can be so high if the online store is in overseas :)

@karaimame : Thanks a lot Lilian! They are coming on January next year. Can't wait ... Oh you are so right, parents should congrulate the parents too :)

Yeah, I noticed that "pinkish" at the first time I saw this pict hehehe. I thought you do it in purpose by the help of PS CS, but it's totally very okay :D. Your pink strip in the middle of the pict balances it :D. The twin stars? I never have an idea before that they could be put into bento box since they are very detailed. But, on my egg sheet master's hands *you*, nothing is impossible hehehe :D. Happy b'day for the twins! Duuuhh... jadi pengen liat poto mereka, pasti lagi lutu2na :D

My lil sister is the best! look at what she made for her niece & nephew.absolutely gorgeous,creative,perfect...can not wait to eat them when we there next year :)

@tatabonita : Thanks a lot Ta! I rarely edit the picture from PS. I just use it to put text and watermark. Not as great as you lah, have to take a course from you hehehe ... Mereka chubby banget terutama si Brandon :)

@RJGrace : Thanks a lot Jen! You are the best sister in the whole wide world ;) Can't wait for the next year visit. I know we will have a lot of fun and shopping LOL :D

@Just a MOM : Thanks a lot Lin! When I visited my sister last Christmas, they still tiny but now is so big :)

@Chantale : Thanks a lot Chantale! Brandon's chubby cheeks is just like Andrew when he was a baby. And my sister told me that they share the same personality while Natalie just like Audrey. Must be fun next year when we meet :)

@Vanessa : Thanks a lot Vanessa! So sweet of you :)

@Journal Mommy Yenny : Thanks a lot Yen! Before I wished that I had twins but thanks God no. I think I wouldn't able to take care 2 babies because I don't like to use baby sitter and I'm not good in multi tasking :)
