Bento #21 – The Sunbathing Brothers
Many say, Monday is a hard way to spend one-seventh of your life. You won’t feel it when you are young. Whenever I talk to the Kindergarten kids, they are so happy that Monday is here because they can finally meet their friends. But as they grew old, they start dreading Monday because of spellings, tests and exams. And when they come out to work, like us, they start dreading every Monday and feel that weekends are simply too short. Ok maybe not all Mondays, but generally when Monday arrives, I always feel “why are weekends so short!”.
When I do my blog post for every Monday, I always make sure it is something happy or light, so as to make our Mondays not-so-blue. So today, I am sharing with you, my first bento for 2013 – The Sunbathing brothers! I hope you can use your imagination on this! Haha!
Actually, I am down with a bad flu and terrible headache for the past 2 days. I guess the body is asking me to take a break already. Last Thursday, I went to Hungrygowhere office to join them in a bak kwa tasting. We tried 35 different bak kwas in Singapore! Man, I didn’t know there is so many bak kwa stalls in Singapore!
Yesterday, I went Jurong Point to join them for the search of Best Pineapple Tarts in Singapore! The public contributed more than 100 different types of pineapple tarts, with many homemade ones! Of course I didn’t finish the 100 over pineapple tarts, I only took those which looks worth the calories kind. I will blog about these two events soon. Meanwhile, I guess my body is asking me to take a break from these CNY snacks for a few days.
Oh and also, I am grateful to be given the opportunity to host one of ERA division’s High Achiever D&D event last week! There are about 300 people in the D&D and I was really nervous! I have done a few wedding MCs before but this is the first time I am talking to a hall of 300 people! Anyway, glad that it went well and it was a good experience!
So while I take a rest today, here is a bento of four sunbathing brothers, inspired by what I have seen online. I play cheat abit by buying the original beancurd sushi from NTUC instead of cooking my own rice. Then I bought the different sushi toppings such as seaweed, roe etc and decorated the quail eggs. Once the eyes and mouth are added, it instantly bring life to the bento, isn’t it?
Frankly, this is my first time using quail eggs to make bento because they are so small and it is so hard to peel. But I admit that it is an important ingredients to make bento because the usual egg are too big sometimes, especially when my Grandpa loves to buy the large eggs.
Hope you like my first bento for the year! Leaving you a quote to cure your Monday Blues: Monday is just a reminder that the weekend has passed and there are only a few more days before another weekend gets here. HAPPY MONDAY! All of you please drink more water if you have start eating bak kwa and pineapple tarts!
