Just discovered an interesting natural health blog with lots of information on various health issues ranging from alternative therapies, exercise, men's/women's health, to nutrition updated daily. Most of the articles are very useful in our daily life usage and knowledge as well.
I should be adopting a more healthy lifestyle to boost up my immune system rather than taking vitamin C too often and substitute that with more fruits and vegetables.
Wishing a Happy Hari Raya and holiday to all muslim friends!

Eating a balance diet is a must nowadays as the food we eat causes a lot of side effects without us knowing. Most are loaded with pesticides or antibiotics and are harmful to our health when consume in large quantities. Nowever I stumble upon this forum which has a lot of nutrition information provided from vitamins to organic food. Sometimes I feel is best to pack a bento lunch to work rather than eating out as I find the food outside is too S.O.S ( salty, oily, sweet).
To prepare what to cook at home, do check out these easy recipes from the forum which has lots of ideas on preparation ranging from fruit juices to anti cancer soup!
It's better be fit rather than stocking up on tamiflu or be wearing what N95 mask which doesn't really filter the virus as most N95 respirators are design to filter 95% particulates of 0.3micron while the size of the virus is about 0.1micron!
Some simple preventive tips will be frequent hand washing, resist temptation to touch any part of face, gargling with warm salt water to prevent proliferation, eat more vitamin C and drink warm liquid.
Happy breathing + bento-ing!!

Make use of the shaped silicon cups on this rice moulded bento with stir fried shelled prawns, brussel sprouts and hard boil egg. Actually this was part of dinner food but ensemble into my new Minnie Mouse bento box for this bento. Filled a little light soya sauce in a cute apple face sauce container for added taste to the half hard boil egg. Details were done with nori and crab stick on the teddy+flower onigiri. Wanted to fill the gaps with lettuce and cherry tomatoes but couldn't find any in the fridge...sigh! Time to go groceries shopping........

Ordered some lastest new tools import from Japan online from Bentomarket recently. With the Brigitte cookie text stamp you can bake cookies stamp with your own text, be it your name, message or anything is kind of cool because the fonts are real tiny just right for small cookies. As for the 45% angle rice mould you can make moulded rice tilted facing upwards for a better view of your creations! For inspirations do check out this cute Japanese Bento Blog.
Have fun bento-ing everyone!

Did a mango and papaya fruits bento in my new Tomica bento box which is about 220ml in capacity smaller than the usual ones of 300ml. As you can see from my previous post picture it is not much bigger than a pack of picks! It's kind of small but great as a compliment snack box. Various shapes were cut using miffy, mickey, bear and flower cutters accessorized with lovely picks to beautify the faceless miffi and mickey! LOL!

Finally I found the time to enter Javapot's contest and this will be my entry. It's a caricature cartoon about me with big "goldfish" eyes, hub and furkid...I mean my fluffy dog la! LOL! This was actually for dinner as morning hours are too short to be creative as I need to rush to work. Anyway it took me more than an hour to cook the food and add in the details.
Me in the office busy on the phone and cooking at home.
Back at home is a totally different story got to tie up my hair to cook presto speed in my "carrot wok" and "nori spatula" and be a "si lai" aka wife.
Looks like I have split personality here! LOL!
Carrot, cheese and nori cut outs for hub plus furkid both waiting patiently with growling stomach but obviously hub has to lend a helping hand if not dinner will be extremely late.
Cooked braised chicken with tou foo pok (bean curb) and fried bittergourd with eggs slotted in between the white and brown rice. Can't do any fancy food on working days only speedy simple homecook nutritious food.
I love details and vivid colours as can be seen from my bentos so that is why I like to crochet as well.
My flowery, miniature cactus, edible cucumber little garden.
Anyone interest in my cactus and cucumber plant do let me know I will try to germinate in a pot for you. Don't worry it's free but off course on success basis ....haha!
As you can see there is an octave of keys on the mini cucumbers and some musical picks on cherry tomatoes which shows my hobby in piano playing as well but sad to say I have not been practising as much like before in my younger days. Really need to cut my nails short.."sigh" and start the keys rolling again!
Pssst.. can you see the sinful dessert on the silicon cup? Yup it's my favorite sweet tooth addiction ie chocolates!! It's chocolate coated almonds with M+Ms on top...yummy. Once in a blue moon ..oklah!
That summarised a short story of my everyday life in a bento box! Here you go Javapot.....
