"An empty belly is the best cook."

greetings, earth!

FOOD USED:
RICE
2 QUAIL EGGS
TOFU
EGG SHEET 
MINCED MEAT
FISH TOFU SQUARES
ASPARAGUS
CARROT
SEAWEED
ASSORTED SESAME TOPPERS






This piece was inspired by one of my favourite animated movies of all time (next to Spirited Away, Despicable Me, Wreck-it Ralph, Up, Finding Nemo... wow there's actually quite a few). But, it's not often you can find a modern post-apocalyptic movie... delightful :) ...or is Warm Bodies a close one? I haven't seen it to know.

Wall-E is a simple empty robot at first glance, but fills you with wonder and love as he collects invaluable items the human world left aside, and of course, meets Eve. He's a hidden treasure! I wrapped minced meat in an egg sheet to form Wall-E's body and some remaining bits for his arms. Tofu is a different white from the rice so I shaped them into eyes and claws using a toothpick to imitate the screws in his binocular eyes. Eve's eyes were tricky because I wanted to imitate the glow using the shading of sliced asparagus - didn't have blue food material - nts. consider using food coloured tofu next time or something...

I fell in love with making bentos because it's easy to achieve a balanced meal with its small parts, and not waste meal leftovers - in fact, the more the better variety! ;)
This idea was adapted from Anna the Red :

& I made the bento my own (since I didn't have certain materials) as lunch for him :)

Toughest part? Seaweed tire treads - she shaped those tires so well!
Best part? Eve the quail egg

Bon Appetit!

"Paperman Perseverance"

It's ironic, when you're at a 'young' point of your life - so many questions, too many stories, how do we decide what to relate to? Being told that, you're in your 20's! So you must live life to the fullest. And what that's supposed to mean is: You must meet as many people as you can, but build trust for true friendships that last a lifetime. You must not get into a serious relationship or it will bog you down. You must chase your dream (that you apparently have a clear picture of) so that you can work for a job you love, not just for money.  How many more things must we do that sound so inspiring but in reality is so hard to balance?

I guess since we're supposedly the most healthy and energetic at this age, we should do as much as we can huh. But what if you did do that and you work on yourself, yes. But there are always so many people around you that seem to have so many more chances - at work, at love... then the grass seems greener on the other sid…

"Gotta Ace'm All!"

It's that time again. Or rather, there's always this time throughout our lives. Whether it's a test for school, finals for undergrad, or testing at work - there's always room for a jumpstart!
POKE-BENTO
I decided to make a pikachu bento lunch featuring dugtrio and pokeballs to really bring pokemon to life. Energy, childhood, rest - just a few things this bento reminds me of that I wanted to bring out in the theme to help recharge his spirits for the final undergrad term :) 
Here's my first blog attempt to outline the bento-making process:
Pikachu:Head and Butt: Rice mixed with separated egg yolk, heated for 30sec. after combination.Blanket: Egg-white sheet (forgot to add a bit of corn starch and, as you can see, it broke!). Underneath the blanket you can put any surprise you'd like - I placed ribs and some spicy meat cubes to boost the blanket's shape.Tail: Cut sliced cheese into a thunderbolt shape before cutting seaweed (nori) for the bottom of his tail (I…
