Bentolicious #233
Love Bears
Time indeed flies away. Today is already the last day in January. I have recovered from iron deficiency illness. After taking the medicines for a few weeks, I feel a lot better now. Kids have been having lunch from school catering due to my absence in bento making. Today, I'm back and hopefully can keep posting to this blog. February is the month of love not because of the Valentine's Day but because me and Mr. Bentolicious will celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary tomorrow. Hubby will take 1/2 day off tomorrow from work and we will have a date later. Yeay!!
Not much update from the kids' side. They got into their routines for school days activities. But next week, Big A will have retreat camp with her classmates. This will be her first experience to sleep outside from home without us. I'm sure she will have a lot of fun later as she kept asking me what she should bring for the camp. I asked her to make her own checklist and hopefully she didn't bring everything.
Inside the box : rice, Chinese okra stir fry, cherry tomatoes, tamagoyaki, and pan fried chicken with garlic & herbs.


So glad to see you back and healthy Lia! You haven't lost your touch with cute bento. This one looks like two friends on a camping retreat; how appropriate! She will have a wonderful time!

@sheri fujihara chen : Thanks a lot Sheri! Glad to see your comment, first today hehehe ... Big A will have fun for sure (^.^)

So glad that you are well now, Lia.
happy wedding anniversary...! Wish you to have a great date together :) I see that this bento represents you two, a couple in love :) yay...

Happy to know you've recovered and back to bento-making again. the bento is so cute.
Happy earlier 15th wed anniversary & wish you have a great celebration.

Glad to hear you are recovering and feeling much better. And congratulations on your anniversary. Isn't 15, the crystal wedding? Maybe a hint for a sparkling gift :-). Either way, I hope you'll enjoy your "date". The bento looks super cute. What are the bears' noses : a yellow pin or something edible? Still envious of your perfect tamagoyaki too ...

@Journal Mommy Yenny : Thanks a lot Yen! I'm glad I'm all good now so I can have coffee with you soon :D

@megan : Thanks a lot Megan! Lot of things happened in 15th years of our married. But we always cherish all the moments. Hope we will celebrate it many more years :)

@karaimame : Iron deficiency is suck ... I felt like a 'veggie' all the time. Never thought that I would have iron deficiency, I thought was hormonal things or too tired. But glad I'm ok now. Thanks a lot Lilian!

Wow! Congrats on your anniversary :)! I have known my hubby for 13 years but we haven't been married that long. I hope we'd also be able to be together for many more years to come just like you and your hubby...! I am sorry to hear that you have not been feeling the best, I myself have also just recovered from cold. Get well soon and hope to see more cute bentos from your site :)!
