*Getting a pet*

The two older kids have been bugging me to get them a pet. They have asked for a puppy, a fish, a hamster and parrot. Gosh! Not that I am not encouraging them to love animals but looking at them… they are still very much my pets! :lol: Told them honestly, if they can’t take care of themselves, I won’t be able to give in to their request!

Darrius especially has been begging me to get him a dog but I told him there are heaps of responsibilities that comes with the dog! Also, there will be a lot to spend on the dog too! For instance, when we train the dog to do simple tricks, we need to get dog training treats to motivate it! Can’t imagine how much it will cost to groom the dog later!

Baby turned 2!

It has been a busy Easter week for us. Not that we are celebrating Good Friday and Easter but our baby turned 2 on the eve of Good Friday. We celebrated her birthday on Good Friday as her daddy was away on biz trip till late on the actual day.

Here is the cake I baked specially for the occasion…

Little girl and her siblings had a great time at the little party I organised for her. It was a blessing that her grandparents are here to celebrate this wonderful day with her. :)

Slow posting

The past weeks has been hectic! There were so much going on so I got sucked up totally with work. I don’t have time to sleep too! Yes, it was that bad… as baby was not sleeping well at night and I was forced to wake up many times a night attending to her cries.

Also, the first school term is coming to an end and it is kind of a relief as I can sleep in a little more from next week onward to catch up on sleep.

Hopefully I am able to post more in a week since I still have a bit of backlog!

Bento Fun #348 – Happy Garden Bento

I have quite a few bento posts lined up but really have no time to post them. I am trying my very best to get all the photos processed but it has been tough to get time to sit in front of the PC. Baby just won’t let me sit down in peace. When she naps, I will have to quickly finish up the never ending list of house work.

Here is a bento I made for Darrius 2 weeks back. He has Footy practice every Wednesday this term…

Both pear onigiri mixed with some furikake have meat floss and mayo filling.  There is a tamagoyaki, a chicken nugget, broccoli, strawberry and cherry tomato. A chocolate Moo box and a LCM complete the meal. He had a heavy breakfast so I did not pack that much for him.

Slow in posting

The past weeks has been really a busy one. I have been doing quite a bit of cleaning and tidying the house as my parents will be here the end of the month. As the sun is still good, I have been doing quite a bit of washing in anticipating the colder weather where there will be more rain than sun.

Have been doing a bit of baking too since the kids and the hubby have been having really good appetite! Everything gone real fast!

Hope I can post more when there are less stuff to do.

*MH370*

The hottest news now is the disappearing Malaysian Airline flight MH370 which went missing on the early morning of 8th of March flying from KL to Beijing. For some reasons, the plane went off the radar an hour after it took off.

As mysterious as it is, no one can determine where the plane could have flown to or has it been crashed. As of now, 5 days after it went missing, there is still no news or sighting of the plane. What so baffling is, there was no distress calls at all and all attempts to locate it ended up in nought. There were not a single clue.

So serious now that the FBI is involved. I am sure they are using all the high tech gadgets to find the plane. As such, the Motion detection Camera is of no use now. Just hope there will be new development in the search and rescue efforts that involved more than 5 countries.

Bento Fun #347 – Beary Burgers

I have not been doing much updating lately as I’ve been a little lax. There are just too many things going on. I have lots of posts queuing up actually but just can’t find the time to post them up. :P

Anyway, here is another bento I made for the kids with home made buns…

Bento Fun #346 – Funny Trio Bento

Was supposed to bake some breads yesterday but was too lazy so can’t think of anything to put into the kids lunch boxes. Remembering I have some fish cocktails in the freezer, some ideas came along… yes, the thought of those cute Ooglies came flushing back!

I was running so did not have time to cut the cocktails sausages into shapes so just used them as they are. Just have to dress them up with some cheese eyes and they are good to go! heheh And since there were no carbohydrate, I added a pear onigiri mixed with some furikaki.

The kids polished off everything except the lettuce…

Darrius even told me that all his teachers were excited to see his lunch box everyday as they were expecting to see something fun! :lol:

Bento Fun #345 – Beary Valentine’s Buns Bento

How was your Valentine’s Day celebration? It is just another day for us here as the hubby is not the romantic sort :P

However, that does not mean I can’t be all lovey dovey! I made these for Darrius’s lunch box and he was so happy he finished everything!

These beary buns are filled with fish cocktails which is a hit with the kids. Glennedine did not have class so I only need to prepare one.

And I prepared these little cupcakes for Darrius’s class teachers…

Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day celebration! :)

Bento Fun #344 – Home made Crocodile cocktail bun

A few weeks ago I stumbled on a Japanese mommy’s blog whom made the cutest character buns. I was so inspired after going through some of her works and thought I should give it a go. The thing is, I have problems shaping the bread dough so gave up many times. However, the cuteness of these buns gave me the courage to try. Started with these cute cat buns… not that perfect but quite encouraging :)

So, it is time to try making other shapes and I have chosen to do the crocodiles ones which look pretty simple. The only thing was shaping the eyes… what seemingly easy but it was not! It is hard to get the sizes correct!

Anyway, I am pretty happy with the outcome…

As my girl has classes too I made 2 sets but the items in the boxes are slightly different as Ms Diva don’t like cherry tomatoes >.< A simple kyaraben bento… only need to draw the eyes and the teeth :) And so, these kick-started my kyaraben journey for this year!
