Yesterday was a public holiday here, so no bento was made. I cooked a big pot of Indonesian chicken curry this morning. And packed the curry for today's bento, added some bok choy & egg tofu stir fry along with the steamed rice. I put the little monkey on the top of the rice and banana picks all around. It looks like the little monkey is juggling the bananas :)
Both kids were chosen from school to participate in a spelling bee competition for international curriculum school on March, 5. So they are starting to practice at home. And their English teacher gives them a special training as their preparation. My girl didn't make it to the Top 3 last year. This year she seems to be more motivated. For Andrew, this will be his first time to join. He is usually very shy in front of public, so we keep encouraging him to be brave and to try. We also keep telling them that it doesn't matter whether they win or loose, the imporant is that they should try do their best for this competition. But we also want them to learn about always giving their best, not only for this competition, but for everything their do in life.
