My very first attempt in creating a bento and this is the closest I can get! Some fried sausages, cheese & nutella sandwich in cat & the island of Australia’s shapes plus cut kiwi fruit.
Kieran’s first reaction while I was preparing his bento.. (took me almost one $@&#* hour to prepare this ok!)
K – Mum..what are you doing?
Me – Preparing your meal for recess…nice or not??
K – (screwed up his face) Why are you decorating it?
Me – to make it look more interesting la!
K – (walked off..not impressed at all..)
It was like you know…pua pua pua pua……(music indicating disappointment…) all my effort he’s not even bothered!
Then I packed the box with this sheep band…
Just before we reached his school, he wanted to start digging into his food. He took off the band and shoved it back to me…
K – Nah..no need…
Me – Why? Put it on la..nice ma..
K – (chomping on his food) no need la….
When he came back from school..
Me – So did you finish your food?
K – Yes
Me – Oh great..did you show your friends your lunch?
K – (looked at me as I was some alien) Nope!
I attempted another bento for him a few days later…
K – Mom…can you STOP decorating my food??!!
M – FINE! I will not decorate anymore! Blek!
