My Bento Stash

Okay, this bento craze started with my monty buddy, Elaine.. then a blogger buddy, Christene. It was so contagious, it hit blogger buddy, Deana & the now Makcik Bento, Sandra. hahaha!! I hafta admit, the bug hit me too, slowly but surely! hmmm... (There goes my pocket money)..

Ever since I learnt about bento, I have been searching hi & lo about the tools. Searched via ebay & other online e-store, I told myself I am not ready to start the bento thingy... Not yet..

I was at one of the Japanese store, and I found a couple of Egg Moulds. Without thinking much, I bought them and was quite excited actually. The next morning, I made lil C's lunch snacks consisted of peanut butter sandwich (his fav) and a hard-boiled moulded egg. To my suprise, he finished his snacks. I was again, so excited, coz he hardly finishes his egg, he is one kid who hardly eats anything. I asked his teacher, and she confirmed that he ate the whole piece..

Wow.. I thought, these Bento tools do work like magic. :) Now I understand why Elaine & Christene are so passionate about this Bento thingy.. not to forget Deana & Sandra too! hahaha!

So, there goes the Bento craze in me.. I am convinced!!! Giving the boy interesting and healthy food, I dont mind waking up earlier in the morning to prepare Bento for lil C.. *okay, we'll see about that.. *chuckle*..

Here's what I got from Daiso last night. Sadly, there are not much choice to shop for Bento tools around KK. So far, I have only found a few... in Japan Home Center, Kompleks Asia City and Daiso, 1Borneo. (I am an amateurish cook, so I wont be sharing any bento pix of lil C yet... I am worried that it might put you off..)

Clockwise: Food Picks, carrot sauce containers, transparent bottle/animal sauce containers, food cups, food dividers in green.. Not in pix: Rabbit rice moulds & Animal-shape bread cutter.. each packet RM5

p/s Makcik Bento, Daiso have different colours for the food divider, but I just get green. It gives the appetising look.. heheh Also trying not to introduce too much pink stuffs to lil C.. erggh! hahaha

p/s2 Elaine, I want some Bento books.. need ideas... hahaha!
