About me! in a bento box no 33

Me, Hub, Furkid, My Garden, Favorite food and Piano Keys.

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.

I was created with steam orange, purple sweet potato for my hair and dress. Body parts made of potato with cheese and nori details. Do you see I have two hairstyles? It is because when I am working in the office I don't tie my hair and quite offen on the phone too. Must also look nice in my "yellow" high heels ..peer pressure ..ha ha.
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.

Close up view of my "little garden" of blooming flowers and mini organic cucumber depicting my interest in plants especially in growing miniature cactus.
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.....

Girl and Boy bento competition no 32

Made this for Susan Yuen's competition earlier and I won 4th place for the entry.

Moulded with brown rice shaped in round balls to form a girl and boy sitting on a bed of coral lettuce, corn and flower carrots. Inside the rice balls are some fried mince chicken which can't be seen. The details on the boy which look like a sailor hat are made of cooked button mushrooms. As for the girl's hair and hat are cooked green capsicum and the face details made of nori,crab stick plus cheese. The tiny details on the hats are from lunch sheet. They are surronded infront by cut oranges, rabbit mangoes and flower watermelon at the back in silicon cups.

Thanks again Susan for the prize.
