爱。开心便当のChildren’s Day Bento

Hohoho…no more spooky bento today as today is a happy day for my son at school.  His school is celebrating Children’s Day this morning.  Therefore, I have decided to make him a bento that is suitable for today’s event.

In Malaysia, Children’s Day is celebrated on the last Saturday of October annually.  Primary school children normally go to school on the Friday before the event to celebrate Children’s Day. The schools that are involved would also organise numerous activities for their pupils.  I still remember that when I was in Primary that time, we love Children’s Day the most! LOL…because we will have lots of free foods and drinks that sponsered by the parents.  At the end of the day, we brought home a big bag of goodies that contained junk food, sweets, chocolate, drinks and even bread and cake too.  Oh…so happy with it, it is a sweet memory for me.🙂

Okay, back to my son’s Children’s Day bento…hehehe…

I made three inary sushi and decorated them as fishes with imitation crab meat, cucumber and baby carrot individually.  The eyes were from cheese and nori and the caudal fins/tails were cut from carrots using a love shape cutter. 

Other than that, there are some fried chickens, black grapes, cherry tomatoes and broccoli inside the box.  The ‘star’ on top of the broccoli were cut from left over cucumber that I used for the fish.

Hope that my son will have a great time at school and he told me that his class will preform a song during the celebration.  Hope he enjoy it.🙂

Wishing all of you have a great and joyful day and happy weekend ahead.
