Today i made smiley face bento theme for my husband's breakfast and Elaine's lunch. Why smiley face? Because tomorrow is Chinese New Year, so everybody should be happy. Hopefully the following year will be more togetherness, happiness, blessings, and of course.... creativeness in bento making.

This was my husband's breakfast, he told me that he doesn't like to eat fruit in the morning, so i did not include fruit in his breakfast today. Maybe someday i will try to put some again. :)

Inside the box: smiley turkey sandwich and homemade neopolitan pudding. There is Vla inside Stitch container.

For Elaine, i made chinese girl bento which was inspired from Susan Yuen's book.

Inside the box: Onigiri Rice, Spanish Mackerel Siomay, broccoli. carrot, young corn, cherry tomato.

Tonight, we went to my friend's house to celebrate Chinese New Year by having dinner together. There were three families and each family brought some food for our dinner. I brought Mie Goreng (Fried Nooddles), Spanish Mackerel Siomay, and Neopolitan Pudding.

 Mie Goreng


Our menu for Chinese New Year dinner
 (Asparagus soup, siomay with peanut sauce, mie goreng, pork barbeque, egg with balinese spice, fish crackers )

Actually this was yesterday's bento, i made bear and his friend bento theme for Elaine. At first, i would like to put some pork floss on top of the rice, but it became scattered so i cover it with bear cheese. :)

Inside the box: rice, cheese, cucumber, scrambled egg with sweet soy sauce, carrot, asparagus, broccoli, cherry tomato.
