My first Blogger Award!!


Sue from Cooking Momster Corner awarded me my first Blogger award!! I am honored and humbled at the same time. Thank you very, very much.

The Cooking Momster Corner blog was the blog that triggered the birth of Bento Pet. I had just started surfing the net and discovered blogging. I visited many Bento sites all over the world and Sue's site was the only local site which had some indication of a Bento collection (which she bought from the US). It was enough to get my adrenaline running wild and Bento Pet sprung into action.

Thank you, Sue, from the bottom of my heart. *gives a bow*

If I may, I would like to share this with fellow bloggers whom I've recently met and whose sites I enjoy visiting.

Terri of A Daily Obsession - Truly an awesome site. Full of interesting recipes and intelligent rantings from a lady who takes pride in her cooking, presentation and her family.

Rita Ho of I'm making notes - A blogger friend whom I have an affinity with. Loved her Merdeka post and t-shirt. Jim Reeves, Cliff Richard and Bing Crosby fan!!! Yeah!!

Tia*Ungil (Tee Ya Ooh Ng Eel) of Bek el Tekoi ma Rokui el Tekoi - A Palaun woman who currently lives in Hawaii and has got into the Bento obsession. This award is to encourage and compel you to keep going with your Bento-ing.

There are so many creative and fantastic sites out there who deserve this award. All of you deserve it and you have received some awesome and deserving ones too.

These 3 people are close to my heart and has lent meaning to my blogging and so to you - Terri, Rita and Tia*Ungil, I Bento Pet humbly award you with this:


Thank you for having made a difference to my blogging days!!

May you have more creative juices to share!! God bless!

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!
