One week until I return to school as a teacher. Today I recieved my blog assignment and I feel so highly technical. I just finished working on our school website and now my own bento blog spot. Thanks Maki! continue reading...
Well, I placed my orders in a few days ago.
I can't wait till they get here! :D
Some of the supplies like the molds, pics, etc will get here first. Along with a second bento.
I'm so exited! :D lol
Ok, so here's what I've ordered....

I haven't been bento-ing for soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long thanks to lack of time management and assignments. As a result, I just eat whatever that comes across me and pile the weights back on :(
So from tomorrow, I shall use bento-ing again to get myself back on track and take photos of what I eat ^^
During Maki's Veggie month, I dedicated three out of the seven days of the week to just eat vegetables and fruits. So, it was kinda like being a vegetarian for half the week. Even though, I was thrilled about the month's theme, this was even more exciting! It was a out-of-whim call to do, but in the end it paid off.
After twenty-nine days of this half vegetarian/ half omnivore, I decided to go 100% vegetarian. Risky.. yes... but this site has enough yummies to satisfy me. :]
So! Onto the reason of the blog: since I went vegetarian, I bought a block of firm tofu.... continue reading...
03 _ grey hearts canned smoked oysters.
01 _ bonito flakes do n o t go with japanese curry.
02 _ grey likes strawberry jam more than raspberry jam. grey also like lemon butter over raspberry jam.
So, it's May now and thanks to Maki's new bento challenge, I've been researching on a few vegetarian dishes and ideas. Of course, salads are the most obvious veggie dish, so I made a nice pasta salad. It's really easy, and perfect for my future obentos this week:
I call it my greek pasta salad. It consists of pasta ( i choose multicolor spirals just for decoration), green onion, carrots, and a greek dressing. Literally! It's a great bento filer and has two veggies and a helping of carbs. continue reading...
The other day, I went on a search for a bento box at a large mall in Southern California. I knew that they had a few Asian stores and gift shops (mostly anime) so I had an intention of purchasing a bento-like box at one of the shops.
Sadly, I found nothing. >.< And the worst part is that the sales associates were no help. I told this one woman I was looking for a lunch box, and she pointed to some purses. -_-;;
Either way, the mall is the mall; so I went around window shopping. As a cute fan, I went to the Disney store and saw lots and lots of baby bentos! continue reading...
