Another busy day

In the midst of shuttling the children to and fro school, I completed my grocery shopping and my Bento purchases. Jusco stocks up most Japanese ingredients. Today I made Oden again. I love Oden and because lately it's been raining more the reason to eat Oden. Soupy hot and delicious. A friend of mine who's married to a Japanese visited my blog and told me that my Oden looked a little too dark and recommended that I use light soy sauce instead. I'll do that the next time I cook Oden - soon I hope. Thanks Alice!!

When I got to my favourite 100 Yen shop in Puchong this afternoon I was delightfully surprised because they brought in loads of new stock. Picked up lots of useful Bento related stuff. Wiped the shelves off the Bento belts, the wiener (cocktail sausage) molds and furoshiki (cloth to tie the Bento). It was an exciting and satisfying trip despite the jam. Have to re-pack my cupboard again to find space for the newly acquired stuff.

Pass IOI Mall, take the second U turn and turn left. You can see it as you turn in. It's a large corner shop.

Hope you find it coz it's a treasure paradise.

I wish there's a 100 yen shop here! :) I love all the Japanese supplies too but it's very expensive here in US. Ur bento meals look very good.

Hey! In you're in SF area, there are lots of Daisho shops that sell Bento stuff.

In fact, the Bento community there is quite large. They've even got Vegan Bento communities too.

I'm so sad that Malaysia doesn't have Daisho because they are the ones producing the 'egg moulds' which unfortunately are not available in Malaysia.

Please drop by again. Appreciate it!
