Bento attack

So here I come, finally this Bento-ing virus attacks me. It has been awhile this bento hitting and I have seen many blogger mummies making nice bento lunch box and what I can see in all the bento box is the LOVE!

Not only can see nice food arrangement, but the kids also eat happily. All these while after seeing so many nice Bento set, it still can't trigger me to start doing it. But yesterday I'm not sure what's wrong with me after reading Kiasumum doing her simple Bento, I immediately think of start doing it too and ask around where can buy cheaper Bento accessories. I began to browse some Bento online shops and start selecting which I want. Really, the more I check the more I want to buy. I just buy a few first, really afraid that I'm the kind of "3 minutes hot" to it.

As a new starter, I'm getting some basic stuff like Bento lunch box, dish cups, food picks, baran, egg moulds, rice moulds and bread cutter. Here already over RM200 damage. Some items are quite expansive, for those I'll put on hold first or I'll go 100yen shop (at SS2) to find it. Hopefully I can stay good in doing it else it will be like wasted. I can't wait to see my boy first expression on having nice Bento food arrangement.

Bento accessories online shop that I got my stuff from:
NST.my
Little Bazaar
wchpeng Market Place
JessieLing Market Hall

Ah, welcome! welcome! Start them slow don't rush. After few months doing bento I found out that I prefer to pack adult bento. Kids bento need to be colourful and cute. I sucks at that. With some basic tools i have, I think it is sufficient for the time being.

Ya loh, like Hijackqueen, I find adult bento so much easier to pack. My kids' food only revolve around that few few items. ham, lah, nugget lah, mince meat lah, Dont know what to pack also sometimes. wish my kids eat more adult food and adult portions like other bento bloggers' kids do.

In fact, she has been eating too much. If I make cute bento like the sample pic in your post, I think she'll be fatter than me :-D

The Hello Kitty one is pretty amazing. I thought most people just bought them this way, but making them would be cooler.

Bento-ing is a heavy investment hor. But when u c ur kid's face light up n eat happily, that's priceless.
