Surprise! Eye Candy

One of my friends got back from Japan and brought me these bento accessories. I was elated at the new stash especially the bento straps, it's really difficult to obtain them. See the orange and green silicon cups on the right, these are re-usable and takes the shape of any space left in the bento. It's very pliable. Look at the cute chopsticks and spoons with it's own 'caps'. I love the little Hello Kitty sauce containers. I'm not really a fan of Hello Kitty but it came in handy this morning to contain the sauces for the bento.

I liked the Hello Kitty templates too. Just dust some furikake onto sushi rice and when removed, it leaves the famous kitty's face embossed on your rice! In front on the right corner are sauce bottles to contain soy sauce. The food cups come in various colors, shapes and sizes. There was even a star punch. I was on a 'high' the whole weekend when I received this stash.

My friend met my kids and I at Onsen, the Japanese restaurant which I posted about earlier. They were having a special Merdeka celebration and offered 50% discount of a selected menu. This is what we had:

I forgot to take the pictures of the Salmon dish and the Saba shioyaki that we ordered but all in all for six main courses the bill came up to RM120/=. I thought it was a steal!

Bento #19

More proteins this morning. PMR trials lasts' till the end of the week! Daughter #1 is asking for noodles and rice, Daughter #2 insists on proteins. Well sweethearts, mum is only going to pack the same contents into your bento. You'll have to learn to survive for a while.

On the left is more fried chicken and some spring rolls. The filling is made out of left over roast duck, carrots, fishcake, enoki mushrooms and simmered shitake mushrooms from leftover sushi, all tossed together and fried in oyster sauce.

On the right is home made gyoza and two containers of sauce. Chili sauce for the spring rolls and vinegar dip for the gyoza.
