Bentolicious #209
Hope everyone had a good weekend! We had a very relaxing weekend at home. Hubby's dental surgery went well on Friday morning and now is recovering very well. I'm back to 100% me and Big A who had cough on Friday is getting better after taking a lot of rest on the weekend. So everyone seems to be back in a good shape. Monday bento is panda bento. I tried to use nori for the ears and eyes but my nori started to shrink quickly that I had to replace them with brown egg sheet (mixed dark soy sauce with egg). Little A originally asked for Pokemon bento but I told him that he could have it this week but not on Monday. I will need to look at their Pokemon books to find some inspirations for the Pokemon bento. Inside the box : braised five-spice chicken and potato, sauteed tofu and egg, rice. Fruits in separate box (not featured in this picture).


Cute bento and looks delicious too ^^

Did you hand mold the panda? The shape turned out great ^^. Braised five-spice chicken and potato recipe please.... :D

how come i can't make a Panda as cute as yours, :P

Hi Lia, go glad to hear that everyone is in good shape at home. Love your cute bento :)

Glad that everyone back to shape, Lia
yummy bento..!

Cute panda!~

@Dino : Thanks a lot for your kind comment!

@tatabonita : Yes Ta, hand molded. Round and oval shapes are not too hard so still can manage it hehehe ... I feel guilty every time you ask for the recipes. I don't have time to update the other blog for the recipe. Please bear with me until I can manage my time to make post for both blogs :D

@Bobo : hahaha ... Oh come on! I know you can make the cute panda too. You only need round and oval cutter ;)

@Anncoo : Thanks a lot Ann! Glad that we are all healthy again :)

@Journal Mommy Yenny : Thanks a lot Yen!

@prince n princess mum : Thanks a lot!

Hi Lia, beautiful and cute bento as usual...:)!! Sorry for not commenting for some time, as you know I have been away from the virtual world due too much good foods in Jakarta ;). So happy that I could meet you in person, hopefully I didn't bore you to death in Sushi Tei, haha;). I should thank my mum for making it livelier ;). I will still be away from the blogsphere for some time due to my driving course, I think I told you about it. So my days are now filled with filling out horrendous car-related questionnaires. I'll have the theory test next week and I am nervous like hell...!! Well, wish me luck and I hope we can meet again next time I am in Indo :D)!

Cooking Gallery : Thanks a lot Sin! I was glad to meet you and had lunch together. Not boring at all and your mom was so awesome! Wish you all the best for the driving lesson. Don't worry, you will master it very soon (^.^)

Great to hear that hubs surgery went well! N I like the reddy nose!

@Xelia : Thanks a lot Xelia!
