Bento #20 – Mr Frog Prince
“Once upon a time there lived a frog who loved a Princess…”
I am sure many of you have heard of The Frog King by Brothers Grimm. The version I heard was when the princess kisses the frog, it magically transforms into a handsome prince.
But after that, I have read other versions about how the spell was broken. One of them is when the princess threw the frog against a wall in disgust. Another version is when the frog sleeps with the princess.
From the story, someone smart came up with the popular phrase “You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your handsome prince.” It encourages those who still seek true love.
So today, I created a frog prince bento for anyone who is still seeking true love. Here is how I did my frog prince:
1. Cut a frog head from Japanese cucumber. You can choose broccoli instead.
2. Cut out two round shape and a moon shape from cheese to make the eyes and mouth.
3. Paste the seaweed as eyeballs.
4. Cut out a “A” shape using cheese to make the body.
5. Cut out 4 long poles from Japanese cucumber to make the hands and legs.
6. Decorate the shirt with seaweed and you are done!
TA-DEH! My Mr Frog Prince bento is done! Hope it looks like a frog to you.
Thank you all for the comments of the new blog design, be it good or bad. I read every single one of them and I appreciate it very much. I have been working closely with the designers to touch up on the website. I spent all nights trying to make sure all the content and photos are looking as it should be in the new WordPress platform.
If you are viewing the older posts, you realized the photos are smaller and the paragraphing isn’t very ideal. I am getting it fixed asap and thank you for your patience.
But there is a bad news. The old links which you have bookmarked is no longer valid because I have jumped from Blogger to WordPress. This is something which I cannot fix and I hope you can re-bookmark your favourite posts. You can search the posts by typing the keywords in my “Search” box.
If you see any problem, please leave a comment or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you.
