New Bento box?

We have a one day holiday today, so #2 is off school and there's no Bento!

Some random musings....

When my niece passed this to mum to bring back from Penang, I was quite excited. It looked like a bento box!

Unfortunately, it wasn't, and I was a little disappointed! (Sorry sweet heart, your Aunt is such a bento addict). It turned out to be a box of Japanese biscuits. She'd just returned from a stint in Japan and bought chocolates and these Japanese biscuits for mum to bring back for the cousins.

What a thoughtful thing to do. Not many young people these days 'bother' and it's nice to acknowledge the few who still remember their parents teachings and "P's and Q's".

And did I mention? This thoughtful young lady is on the way to being a doctor? Yeah!

chooi peng: I find the taste too 'rich' although it does taste nice, one can't eat too many at a time (which is good!).

Lucky little girl!
