How to make #1 - Bratz (Lookalike) on 16 February 2009

I always wanted to make some characters using veges/eggs etc. Been telling Misha that I wanted to make the following - but keep postponing the idea .. sigh, too many things to do at home and even in School. March will definately a busier month .... sobs sobs!

Ok ... since I have decided to try out and since there are "ingredients" in the fridge, I sat down and start my assignment ... hahaha. The whole process took me about 2 hours and the outcome? Hm ... .. not so successful BUT I think worthwhile since it does look like Bratz (even a bit .. hahaha) Let's roll down :)

this is HOW my artworks supposed to look like :)

trace the outlines

ingredients - carrot/cucumber skin/rose apple skin/white egg sheet

(did not use) and lastly yellow egg sheet

the outline ... with lips and eye brows
tadaaa .. all done !

The "doll" does not look like the 1st photo .. quite disappointed actually. But still I considered it as a job well done .. will try to make nicer ones in future .. haha :)

Bento #49 @ 16 February 2009

16 February 2009

I have decided to prepare sandwiches for Misha today since she will only have 1/2 hour to have her lunch.

Let's have a look at what I have prepared .. hahaha. I considered it quite unsuccessful because hmm .. they do not really look cute! How disappointing :( Anyway, hope the 2nd time will be more successful :)

I have used two different bread here. Brown bread made from chocolate whereas the other one is carrot bread. Bought them from Breadtalk Bakery. Yeah .. breadtalk, we have an outlet here in HK :)

From top :

  1. The brown dog was decorated with cheese/seaweed with nutella inside;
  2. Teddy bear was decorated with cheese/seaweed with turkey ham inside;
  3. Little rabbit decorated with seaweed (eyes) and little carrots (as nose) with eggs inside and lastly;
  4. The brown bear with decorated with cheese (as cheeks), seaweed as eyes and carrot as lips (hahaha) and cheese in between :)

The sandwiches were supported by two little eggs so that the cute animal shaped sandwiches won't move.

Will try to prepare more colourful and cute animal sandwiches in future .. hahaha :) Till then, ta ta

Bento #46 - 10 February 2009

From this week onwards, Misha will only have 1/2 hour to have her lunch in school instead of the usual 1 hour lunch break. What happened to the other 1/2 hour? Well ... she has to attend different extra curriculum for the other 1/2 hour.
Since, she has only 1/2 hour for lunch, she has requested for something that she can eat fast :) Anyway, I have prepared fried popiahs for her today and hope she will like them :)
