Bento #30

This is a new Bento box. They are two individual boxes which you can stack one on top of the other. Before this, I bought the orange one because I didn't like the pink. Recently I saw the blue one and decided to pick it up because of the size. It's larger that the two tier ones that I have. Along with this one, I bought several others...mmmmm...need to curb this Bento collecting habit even if it's cheap! These, I got at the 100 Yen shop. My husband says it's a rip off because they are charging us RM4.90 for 100Yen which by current exchange rate should be only over RM3.??

Oh well, what to do? There aren't any other outlets selling them, closest being in Singapore where there are Daiso outlets. *grin* just make the best of the current status!! Hehehe!!

This new box is for #2 and she likes her Chirashi-sushi all mixed up. She doesn't want to have to deal with 'complicated' food. Very messy to have to do the mixing in school! Okay, mum has taken note so your Chirashi-sushi has been mixed up and added into your box.

There is a tuna mayo sandwich with focaccia bread and a cup of freshly steamed corn removed from the cob, and a cute 'rabbit' (sorry I don't know what it's called) from the moon cake family. One of our friends gave us a whole box of these 'animals' in the shape of porcupines, pigs and rabbits.

The box on the right is for #1. She likes to lap up the visual pleasure of her food and then savor it. So, the ingredients of this Chirashi-sushi is just laid out in six sections on top of sushi rice already mixed with Kewpie Mayo.

Lately, I've been using the silicon cups which can be washed and re-used. I wish I could get other sizes and shapes but looks like these will have to do for the time being. I'm happy that I don't have to throw them away anyway!

Pity I didn't discover your blog before I left msia. Otherwise I would have paid a visit to the 100 yen shop too! It's in Puchong, you say? Which part?

And did you get the silicone cups from the same place? Good idea, I also don't like to throw away the aluminium cups all the time.

kat: it's in the shops before Carrefour. There is also one in SS2, two doors away from McD's.

My friend brought the silicone cups back from Japan for me. I was so, so grateful!!

Another great entree, Bento Pet! So, how many bento boxes in your collection now? In my opinion, with your skills and passion, there is no such thing as having too many. :)

Bento Pet said...

rita ho: Yeah! Thank you for speaking aloud my deepest thoughts!! I shall continue to shop for Bento boxes!!

Surely even the butcher has at least a dozen knives?
