Tiger Bento

Argh, I lost my tweezer this morning, the one I used for adding on nori to my bentos. I've no idea where it went, I suspect I threw it away while washing up yesterday. And for the record, if that is really the case, it's the second one I've lost. :( I felt so handicapped adding nori this morning without a tweezer, I was struggling between my chopsticks, scissor and toothpick. :P I mananged to buy another pair at a bookstore just now, that will tide me over for the time being, as I've an important bento for tomorrow, a promise from almost a year ago that I've to keep. :)

Bento for IT, in the box are beef/spinach rice, chicken nuggets, cheese, sunny side up, strawberries and blueberries.

Bento for LT, same stuff in the box as above. Hehe, there was no space for one of the tiger's ear. :P

Bento for IT's recess, in the box are nutella sandwich, chicken nuggets, sunny side up and blueberries. The egg is fully cooked for this box as I'm not sure whether it's safe to keep the half-cooked version till recess.

I was not too happy with the position of some of the nori bits, but I had great difficulty trying to adjust them without my tweezer, so I just left it. :(

Beef/spinach rice and sunny side up in a bowl for me. :) LT did not want his egg, but I ended up throwing his yolk away coz 2 egg yolks would have been too much for me.


  1. The tigers are adorable! What a great use of Sunny side up eggs :) I feel your pain with the tweezers - I've lost mine before and it is so much harder to do charaben without them.

    1. Tks, Natakiya. Yes, I found it so hard to put on the norj bits. Good news though, I found it last evening after making payment to an online seller for a new set. But she was really nice and allowed me to cancel. :)

  2. I think you did a fantastic job!!
    I only eat eggs hard boiled or when the yolk is cooked, but I love this idea for my family.

    How did you not burst the yolk?

    When I make breakfast(normally for 4 ppl, using 6 or 7 eggs) I always manage to burst at least one unintended.

    1. Tks, Cat. :) I just try to break open the shell slowly. But this time I was lucky this time, they all turned out well. Sometimes, I also get one or two burst.
