Bentolicious #197
Hello everyone!! Kids are officially back to school today. Big A is in Grade 6 and Little A is in Grade 3 now. This year will be a tough year for Big A as she will have 2 final exams, one from the school and one from the government. It is a regulation here that students from Grade 6 (Primary), Grade 9 (Secondary) and Grade 12 (Tertiary) will have 2 final exams. I'm glad that finally I can get back to bento making after a long break from blogging. This week I will just make snack bento or smaller portion bento for the kids because this week will be an orientation week where all the students will be dismissed before lunch time. So it's good for me for warming up, catching up with other bento makers, stretching up my 'lazy nerves' after on hiatus for more than 1 month. I hope I don't forget about how to make bento for my kids LOL ... *silly me*
Inside the box for today's bento, I only put sandwich with ham & cheese and Indonesian traditional cake made from cassava covered with coconut. Decorated with yellow egg sheet and nori with the Anpanman & Friends food picks. This bento didn't take a long time to prepare. Didn't require any cooking in the morning, so pretty quick to prepare. Egg sheet was very easy to cut. First I cut it as same as the size of the sandwich and then started to trim and make a school bus shapes with my X-Acto knife. The wheels were cut with the round cutter. And upsss ... my kids asked why there was no bus driver (???)


OMG!!!! The school bus is soooo cute!!!!!

@Cuisine Paradise : Thanks a lot Ellena! In real life my kids never ride school bus. So they are happy with today's bento hehehe ... :)

I love the little Anpanman and friends picks!! Such a cute way to welcome the A & A back to school. I'm sure they will do well this year, as always :D

Glad that you are back! and your back to school bento is absolutely cute.. ya.. kids nowadays don't take school bus, not like my generation..
