Our so-called 1st Bento on the go!

What is Bento?

Bento is the Japanese word for a meal served in a box. Beyond that basic definition though, just about anything goes as to what kind of box or container is used, as well as what is put inside that box. (courtesy of

My 1st Bento Starter Kit obtained from MySunshine2U. Contains :-

1 Insulated bag
1 Double deck Bento box
1 Bird shape pancake mold
1 Matching bento strap
1 Flower cookie cutter
1 Star shape egg mold
1 Dish potion cup
1 Dish potion cup (shape of house)
8 Picks (vegie & fruits)
2 Sea creatures picks
1 Soy sauce bottle

Then, adding 2 more gadgets which was Rice Mould & Sausage Cutter (Wiener) from the recent Picnic at the Tiny Tapir, Damai Bungalow. Obtained from New Stylish Tokyo.

Back from the Picnic event, I rummaged through my stuff, relied on my hunch, adding more already available and as Bento Sifu’s assurance that those stuffs can comes in handy. Who knows?

So…only yesterday noon, mostly done by me, experimenting those gadgets with processed foods first such as sausage, crabstick, beef salami, cheese, fried seaweed, mayonnaise and mixed vegetables. Rice, egg & broccoli were the healthier ones.

I overboiled the rice crab and I think I need to boil the sausage longer so the cut-outs would be more obvious.Hubby did the rice moulding inclusive the deco.

Actually, it could not be called Bento as it is served in a dish instead of box. Anyway, it is our lunch and I want to learn how to use those stuff first.

Here’s the dishes for the three of us. Baby Hambali of course could not be included since it was not a healthier choice for him. Besides he was already full from home-cooked salmon porridge.


Well, whaddya think? 😛
