Fyi, school canteen is selling nuggets at RM1.00 for 2 pieces. I think that is so freaking expensive! The next day the kiasu me went and bought a big packet of nuggets too. *ngek, ngek, ngek*
Many Mummies out there was wondering where I bought the Hello Kitty fishcake from. My current stock is all from Takashimaya Singapore. The last time I was in Singapore, I sapu about 5 packets of it. Of late, I saw the same thing selling in Mid Valley Jusco (the entrance where you will see a pool furniture umbrella). They are hot selling stuff. Whenever you are there, just take a peep. I’m sure by luck you may chance upon it. Price was S$6.90 or RM12.90.
Left to right: Wholemeal mantou with cut-out cheeses, stuffed kamaboko and crappy-looking-vampire-eyes kamaboko. Fruits – checkered apple.
How I wish someone warned me earlier that this Hello Kitty crust cutter is a little bit too small for our local Gardenia bread size. The only time I get to use the cutter is when my eldest Sister bake me some home bake bread. Nevertheless, they are very cute.

We don’t get to use this two tier bento box very often. Usually we just utilised the bottom tier but it sure comes handy today. Sometimes owing two tier compartment box give us the flexibility. You decide when you want to use them separately and when to use them whole. Same concept as the portable laundry hamper.
Post dated bento consist of individually packed rice + chicken floss . Dishes is fried egg (using egg white for the face, cincau jelly for the eyes and whiskers *haha!*, egg yolk for the nose and carrot as the ribbon), blanched broccoli and cauliflower and pan fried salmon slices.
This is how I prepare the rice:
Filled onigiri mould with rice and make a well at the centre. Position chicken floss in the well before closing them with more rice. You can mix rice vinegar to your cooked rice or just leave them plain.
Place your rice ball on the centre of plastic wrap and wrap them up.
As for the pan fried salmon slices:
Cut salmon in slices. Marinate them with teriyaki sauce, dash of pepper, honey and dark soy sauce. Melt a little butter on non-stick pan and fried them. Make sure you do not overcook the salmon.
As for the Hello Kitty egg:
Separate egg white and yolk. Fried them separately. The rest is all cut out from the Hello Kitty cookie cutter. I really respect those amateur bento blogger. How did they find time to do all those cutesy bento? I took near to 1 hour to prepare this bento. I think this is the first and last time I EVER use the cookie cutter for bento’ing. Really so much work!
