Spirited Away Bento

Have you watched Spirited Away before? It's from the same creator of Totoro, Hayao Miyazaki. I watched this film many years ago, but I've never shown it to my boys before. Since I don't make characters my boys do not know for them, I ended up making this charaben for myself. :P

Chihiro bento which I made last Thursday. Chihiro is made using crabstick, ham, nori and kombu. The side dishes were Shio-koji pork, spinach, tomato and mentaiko hanpen.

I've to admit I don't really like to eat charabens, lol. I prefer to eat a traditional bento instead.

Here's a bento I packed for myself last week, filled the box with teriyaki beef, sprouts, okra, tomato and mentaiko hanpen.

  3. 千寻--是我一直缺乏勇气尝试的造型!你做得真好!佩服!
    我自己也不太舍得吃自己做出来的造型便当。呵呵呵。

    1. 谢谢你!我其实并不是舍不得吃,而是不太喜欢吃制作造型便当所使用的一些材料如乳酪,火腿。总觉得这些材料搭配饭吃起来很奇怪。

    1. Lulu, I've bought the end pdt, hv not seen the grains used for culture. Meidi-ya has a few types. Jmart at 112 katong n Sakuraya fish mart at Parkway both only carry one type each n it's a different brand at both shops. :)

    2. Oh wonderful! I was at Meidiya just last week but didn't think to look for it d:(

      But Parkway and 112 are much nearer and accessible so I will certainly go this week! Even one brand is better than none d:)

      Wah you really travel all over Sg to look for ingredients huh d:P

    3. I hardly travel at all, lol. I stay at EC! So parkway n 112 katong are my regular places. But I prefer the jar ones at Meidi-ya though. The ones at the other 2 shops seemed more watery n diluted.

    4. Thank you for the review. I will go for the 112 and PP ones first to try. If I like it I will plan another trip to Liang Court (although it won't be for the next few months because my girl will be having Prelims shortly and then... *gasp* PSLE!!).
