Bento #2

This morning's Bento looks too yellow/brown. Still sick so didn't have time to get some fresh food supplies. Probably have to do so today.

On the left is YCK (Yau char koay) courtesy of Mum - she made Bak kut teh last night for dinner and bought about 10 pcs of YCK from the seller at Chow Yang, SS2 -very famous stall for YCK. Didn't have vegetables that the children liked so I simply opened a can of corn.

On the right Bento box is spaghetti Olio e Aglio (Olive oil and garlic). My children love this basic and plain. Added some fishballs, carrot and tomato for color.

Bento is all new to me. I read about bento in some of the bloggers post but I think very popular either in Singapore or Malaysia.

So, do your kids take their bento to school or do they have their meals in bento at home?

If taken to school, do they then have their spaghetti cold?

I am rather intrigued. :)

Hi dr ve thru

Thanks for leaving a comment. Appreciate it.

I think there is a large Bento community in the US. Whilst parents want their children to have nutritional food when they are at school, the adults pack food either for health or budget reasons. So Bento is interesting and delicious because it had variety.

Like Forrest Grump's quote - " was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get". With Bento it's like that (if you're packing for the kids).

Everyday is a surprise for my kids. By the time they are ready for school, their box is secured in a bag to be taken as they leave.

Yes, my kids have their Bento in school during their break time about 10.30a.m. It's like taking a lunch box to school, only difference is it's not ham and cheese.

Unfortunately, the school doesn't have microwave oven facilities so they have their food cold, so yes, they have their food cold.
