BENTO #128

Yesterday, we had Ramadan food for dinner. I went to KJ to buy rendang, stuffed fish, 'tulang' soup, balitong and some vegetables. It was a refreshing change and surprisingly the food was not chilli hot even though everything looked so 'red'.

#2 says that she want to stay off carbo for a week. How to make bento for a week without carbo? *sweats-wipes forehead*

This morning I made a tortilla sandwich for the bento. This is how it looked before being rolled up. Butter the base, lay vegetables and salad sprouts, carrot sticks and tomatoes. Drizzle with tomato sauce and kewpie mayo on top of honey cured ham.

Roll them and pin them up with food picks and viola! Bon Appetite!
Added a bottle of Japanese 'Energy' drink - tastes like 100plus in jelly form.

This box is mine to bring to a ladies fellowship this morning. A friend invited me to a meeting of mothers who get together to pray for their children. It's my first time and everyone is supposed to bring some food - so typically Malaysian!

My Jyubako all packed and ready to go!

I'll try to update more pictures on the Bento Party. Blogger is just so SLOW!! Today is a busy day, I'll try my best!

mihoo: Actually it is very simple. The trick is to wrap it very tightly!

Looks can be deceiving!
