Hope all of you had a great time over the weekend!
My kids didn't make it to the final spelling bee contest on Saturday. Little A was taking it easy but Big A was disappointed. So after the contest we went out to have lunch, bought some books at the Kinokuniya book store, and watched a movie. Big A seemed happy and forgot her disappointment. I got the newest Akinoichigo's bento book (8th) that I ordered 2 weeks ago. I'm her fans and have been learning so much about charaben bento from her bento books. Her newest book is very inspiring as always, a lot of fresh ideas inside. You can see her other bento books that I posted here and here.
I made 2 green girls. Shaped the onigiri by hand and used green deco furi for the green part of the onigiri. Also stuffed some char siu inside the onigiri. Inside the other box : hard boiled egg, stir-fried lap cheong with celery, stir -ried veggies (carrots & cauliflower). Yesterday, I did 3 simple bento photo shoots including step-by-step for Sekar magazine. It was a great experience! And I wanna thank TUM and Sekar Magazine for the opportunity. This week, I will just prepare bento for today and tomorrow. I will be in Singapore from Thursday until Saturday. My parents will stay at my house and look after the kids.
