My Favourite 14 Bento of Year 2014

Two more days will be the New Year 2015! Time flies and today I'll be sharing my most favourite 14 Bento for this year 2014 ^_^ Pretty hard to decide as all of the bento were made for my darling daughter's lunch break. Hopefully I can continue making them because sooner or later she will be like her brother no longer wants kawaii bento =_=" How sad......will my blog be frozen? Then I shall sing the "Let it go" songs....haha Oh well, perhaps not as I'll try making food art for their dinner plate instead ^_^
So let's see which of my favourite 14 bento below? Any one of them is your favourite too?

Each bento lists below will link to the original page. If you have the time, welcome to visit again

Hope you enjoy reading and thank you for your support at my FB page, Instagram and here ^_^ I'll continue and try my very best to make bento for my girl as long as she requests! I'm always there and even though my son doesn't like kawaii bento, he still has the same foods. Happy New Year 2015 in advance!

Bento2014#Dec22~Domokun Xmas

Countdown 3 more days to go and we're going to attend Christmas Vigil Mass on Christmas Eve. My kids can't wait to open their Christmas presents and I made Domo-kun stand-by and waiting.....hahaha....my final Christmas bento for this year 2014.

Here's the close up Snowman made from mashed potato (I mashed the cooked potato with fork and mixed with parmesan cheese powder/dash of salt) Punch out nori details and scissor cut out the hands. Crabstick for nose and scarf.
As for Domokun made from pan-fried potato with breadcrumbs. I shaped the mashed potato as Domokun before I start to pan-fried with breadcrumbs. I prefer less oil so I don't go for deep fried the potatoes :p After done, I just add crabstick for Domo mouth/hat and nori for eyes. 
For side dishes have broccoli, eggsheet, chicken fillets and mayonnaise for extra flavours ^_^

I hope you like this Domokun Xmas Bento & early greetings from me Merry Christmas!

Bento2014#Dec11๐Ÿ€Totoro X-mas๐Ÿ€

My 4th Christmas Theme Bento ๐Ÿ€TOTORO X-MAS๐Ÿ€ This will be my final bento for my kids bento because next week onwards they will have a 3 weeks school break (Woohoo....equal to my 3 weeks non bento break) And school will reopen next year 2015. Oh gosh.....time files so fast =_=" Anyway, I'll post one more Christmas Bento on next week! So stay tune!
Here's the close up Totoro and this round instead of mixing with black sesame powder with rice, I shaped the Totoro body first then only add the black sesame powder on top. I got the idea from talented Japanese mum Tomomi Maruo (Tomomi Omata). I love her amazing bento art creation and if you've twitter. I recommend to follow her at this LINK. She's awesomely talented!!!
Here's the side dishes close up. Makkuro kurosuke made of quail egg and cover with nori. Eye balls made of boiled egg white/nori. My mum gave me some of her planted sweet potato leaves so I stir-fried it and pan-fried fish fillet. Some Christmas pasta as decoration.
