It's LT's birthday today. IT has no school, so I only made one bento today, an idea I got from a book. Its packed with his favorite fried dumplings and strawberries. The birthday boy turns 4 today! He had a simple birthday celebration at my mum's place last sat. And today, he celebrated in school with his friends.

Bear Sammy

There's no school for IT today, it's meet the parents session at his school. I picked LT slightly earlier. I brought the bentos along for both boys to eat in IT's canteen, while I went up to meet the teachers. And they were both allowed to buy a drink from the school's vending machine today.

Mickey and Cake

Mickey rice onigiri for their lunch today. LT celebrated in birthday in advance last Saturday, the snack bento for IT was a slice of his birthday cake. He had requested for sugar bunnies and 鼠小弟 ( a character from a Chinese story book series that he likes) for the toppers on a strawberry mousse cake, The mousse cake turned out fine, but the toppers I moulded were really ugly. But he loved them, hmmm, kids have very different standards from us.

Strawberry doggies

Found a mochiko chicken recipe on the Internet. It's very suitable for bentos, the chicken still tasted crispy after it was cold. The extra ingredient was rice flour. I had extra chicken leftover, so I made a bento for myself.

Snack bento was sandwich with ham n sausage.

Din like how these turned out, spent quite a lot of time on the onigiri. Snack was pancakes cut out with a cookie cutter, no time to decorate these, so added in some barans to cutify.

Purple Bear

I'm always left with purple color fr the coloring rice pack. Can't find much bento using purple. Decided to make a purple bear. Bear's holding an onigiri. Chocolate madeleine for snack, no time to decorate this, but guess the cutie panda pick was a saver.
