Bentolicious #166
Happy Monday all!!
I'm back to my regular bento making now after all the busy family business finished. My sister and her family flew back to Melbourne last night. So my routines around the house are pretty much back to normal. Chinese New Year was celebrated simple with the whole family. Had a great time with all the family members.
One more week to Valentine's Day. And I'm thinking to make some of Valentine's theme for this week bento. Although we don't celebrate it big here but Valentine is still something that people love to celebrate. Our family doesn't really celebrate it in a big way either. My kids has been asking me from last week to bake some cookies or cake that they can bring to school and share with their classmates. Let's see what can I bake this weekend for them. Today's love bug was made from rice (body and head), red cabbage (wings), facial details (nori and fish cake), heart food pick (antenna).  And added star fruits, strawberry, Chinese spinach, fried fish cake, and five-spice pork in the other box.


So adorable!
