(#134) Vietnamese chicken and croquettes

These bentos are for today, I am still making 3 identical bentos and I am having FUN ^_^ I got to enjoy this bento making hobby while I can, soon my boys will growing up and they wouldn't want me to pack them cute bentos anymore. (I do not want to think about that)


Inside the box :
Brown rice shaped like star, bear and heart,
Beef and vegetable croquettes, Vietnamese lemon-grass chicken, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and yellow baby carrots. Fruits and snacks are packed separately (not pictured)

Thank you so much!!! this is the highest complement I've ever got!!!! totally made my day ^_^
But no I never ever thought of making a book, I am still learning and using lots of bento kits, not as creative as you. I think maybe you're the one who should consider of making a book, I honestly adore your bento creation ^_^ I sent your blog link to many friends for some inspirations.

Really salute you for making 3 bento at one go! You are a great mum! :)
By the way, how do you find that set of facial seaweed punchers? Mine never work well for me, always have to do few punch to collect a full set of good ones! Is it just my problem or the punchers problem? Hmm...

KidsDreamWork : Thank you so much, it's because all 3 of them are identical, I could never make 3 different bentos at once LOL ...

As for the seaweeds puncher, YEAH!! I have the same problem too even though is not all the time. Some time it works right away, some other time I have to keep doing it to get the good looking one, it's very frustrating I know.

And FYI I have not been able to use the one kind of facial punch, the kind that has a very thin but long smile? it looks so darn good on the picture but the seaweeds always come out in pieces :(

Makasih banyak Tata ... (blushing mode ON) ... hehehe
Ini krn temennya si D nginep dirumah, jd pagi2 pergi sekolah bareng2, dan dia slalu minta nyokapnya bwt bikin bento, aku fikir biarin sekali2 aku bikinin dia biar happy ... hehehe
Lagian aku bikinnya malem2 say, jadi ada banyak waktu, pagi2 tinggal diangetin yg perlu diangetin, dan ditata lagi biar rapi.
