Bento Mom?

I went to Daiso with Ethan again yesterday. I tell you, each time I enter Daiso, I’ll come out so much poorer! I’ve always told myself NOT to go to Daiso. JANGAN MASUK DAISO! But tak menjadi… Whenever I’m in One Utama OR The Curve, sure masuk jugak Daiso.. sigh…  *macam kena jampi*

Anyway, bought a zillion stuffs for Ethan. That boy can really shop in Daiso. “Mummy, this one can-ah? RM5 ONLY!” Yeah right… Multiply that RM5 to those 5 things you are holding and see?

I came across these cutie:

Punch hole for Nori sheets @ RM5 ONLY per piece! EVIL!!

Happily I grabbed two. Lagi EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bought some Nori sheets too.  Bought a cute lunch box for Ethan too. *Forgotten to take picture, now malas ady nvm… *

This morning I realised that I’ve forgotten to buy sandwich bread. So I took the red bean bun and flatten it. Cut it using some cute cookie cutters. Took out the Nori sheets and started punching. I used condensed milk to stick those sheets onto the bread and tah-dah…

Super cute looking red bun looking at Ethan! He super loves it that he doesn’t want to eat them! >_<

I said, “Why-lah?!!! Mommy susah-susah make for you now you dun wanna eat your breakfast!”

He said, “I want to show the teachers in BaoBei first!”


The Daddy said to him, “If your friends see it and wants to have some, HOW?”

Ethan answered, “Err……………”

Lantak-lah my anak. Dah buat penat-penat he tak mo makan. When I see how cute the bread is, I became so determined to learn making more cute stuffs. But now seeing that he doesn’t want to eat them coz they are so cute… hmm.. maybe I’ll just stick to feeding him UGLY food >_<

P/S: He came home from class and guess what? LICIN… not a single one left!
