You can make you meal times, especially your “baon” for school or work, epic with a dash of creativity. Instead of just piling your rice with viand inside your lunch box, you can make it look more delicious and enticing by arranging it bento box-style.
Think of your lunch box as your blank canvas and create anything that you can think of. There’s so much you can do with your imagination.
A mom from Singapore “enjoys making cute food for her two boys” and then she posts what she made on Instagram.
Here are some of the adorable bento boxes she made.

Gudetama chocolates using this DIY kit from Japan. Love this Kit, comes with everything, chocolate, mould and wrapping. These kits are supposedly very popular in Japan because the gals there would gift handmade chocolate to the boys on Valentine’s Day. ???? Why don’t they sell such stuff here?????

A little late but finally made BB-8 with a Stormtrooper. My boy took out the lightsaber picks I put in the bento because he says Stormtroopers don’t use lightsabers. Oops……???????? And here’s a last shout-out if you want to get a @danielwellington watch, use the discount code “MingXmas” to get 15% off, ends after tomorrow.
