Bentolicious #164
Happy Monday! I'm still making a Chinese New Year theme for bento. I chose to make a girl with lantern. Lantern is one of the decorations that we often see in houses and shopping centers during the Chinese New Year. So I think this bento is appropriate for welcoming Chinese New Year. Today's bento was pretty simple. I only put sauteed minced pork with potato and scrambled egg on the top of the rice. Added some steamed kabocha slices at the top.
My sister and her family will arrive in Jakarta this afternoon. We are excited to meet them all. Kids have been excited to meet their first cousins. And I can imagine the whole house will be so noisy later.


oh, lantern girl is so pretty and cute!!! Nice bento to welcome CNY, Lia. Enjoy your gathering with your sister amd her family. :)

cute lil gal wearing cheong sam and red cute and festive.
do you dress up your daughter with the red cheong sam too during CNY? :)

I cant wait to dress up my baby gal coming CNY..

Enjoy your family reunion!

Oh my gosh Lia, this bento is just beautiful!!! You are always so amazing!

Hope you have a great Reunion with your sis family...

Ckckckckck...lucu banget girl with lantern-nya (O.o) Kreatif banget! Pasti bikinnya susah deh. Aku masih setia dengan tema klinci kayaknya :$

This bento girl is too adorable! I love that rice textured background too.. Great fun! Have a great time with your family Lia!

Wow this is really cute!

lucu bangeuttttt.... amazing bento as always..

Lia, ada yg mau ditanyain nih: eggsheet bisa brp lama tahan di lemari es ya? cara penyimpanan yg baik gmn? thanks ya..

Lia!!! It's just tooooo cute! You're super creative!

@ChantaleP : Thanks a lot Chantale!

@Uniflame : Thanks a lot Cynni!

@mama elaine : Thanks a lot! Aku nggak pernah simpan egg sheet di kulkas jadi selalu bikin fresh. Aku lebih suka bikin fresh karena kan bahannya telur. Pas bikin seperlunya aja dari 1-2 telur dibagi-bagi utk warna yg kita butuhkan, tidak perlu sampai satu sheet besar utk satu warna. Pernah baca katanya ada yg pernah nyimpen bisa tahan ampe 2 hari :)

@Ju : Thanks a lot Ju!

Gong xi gong xi! I love all ur charaben. My wish is to see ur work in the making so I can learn frm the master n make the coolest charaben for my girl!

@karaimame : Thanks a lot Lilian! Hold on tight, don't panic LOL :D I can't believe the twins are so big now. Last time I saw them, they were so tiny at the hospital. I will take some of their pics tomorrow ;)

The Lantern Girl is adorable! I'm always so envious of your cutting skills!
