BENTO #130

I'm glad I responded to 'mummy's instincts' yesterday and packed a Bento for #2 when I went to fetch her after she returned from camp. I found out at dinner time from hubs that she had skipped lunch because of some chores she had to complete and thus did not have enough time to eat.

When I passed her the Bento, she happily tucked in as she recounted her experience at camp. We had a good 45 minutes bonding time!

I love this new Bento box from the 100 Yen store. I've been coveting this 'environment friendly' color which I have seen being sold in online Ichiban-kan stores in US.

I absolutely love, love this box!
I packed a little left over of yesterday's fruit salad (notice, the apples didn't turn brown because of the orange juice) and some pineapple ham sandwiched in buttered wholemeal bread.

In the right Bento box is some Kiwi, yellow courgette and some seaweed (kombu and wakame) topped with sesame seed dressing.

I have a green one just like this, it's one of my favorites. I got a lunch bag to match it just the other day.

jomamma: I love the green one too! But the 100Yen stores don't carry that color *sigh* and you got a lunch bag too? *Booo hoooo hoooo* Lucky you!

yozo: It's light and easy. All of her favorite foods!

3lilangels: I really enjoyed the bonding time I had with her. Allowed me to understand so much of what she is doing and thinking.

family first: Most of the stuff in the 100Yen stores cost RM4.90 which is a real steal coz most things come from Japan!

Wish I could swipe more boxes and accessories but RM4.90 times many items come up to a lot of $$$$$$!!

If RM4.90 an item is not a good deal, I don't know what is!
