Consolation from Ajinomoto Malaysia

I was encouraged by my friends to give myself a try to participate in  Ajinomoto Malaysia and as a result my doraemon won the consolation price.

It is a remarkable day to me and I am so honored and bless that my families are happy and always give me full support in this. :)

This is the bento that I submit to participate. 

Congrats Karen and other bentoevers too! 

Lastly, thankful to my hubby and my girl. Without their mental and physical support, I do not think I am here. :)

Happy Horse Year 2014

I always remind myself to try this year chinese zodiac - Horse. 

The horse is made from mashed potatoes and wearing chinese 'cap'. Arghh....the angle did not look like cap. :s

I had tried out new menu - Yogurt Chicken. It taste good but I over-cooked and the meat taste slight dry. I would give myself another attempt too try out sometime before I share out this recipes.

Happy Horse Year!

Totoro Bento

It was lovely Saturday and poor William still need to go back office to finish his work. He said if went smooth he may able to come back early to meet the developer. Pity him. :(

Totoro is made from egg and chibi totoro is made from quail egg. I was too rushing and left out the nose and its whiskers for the totoro. lol no wonder my totoro look so pail and weird. lol The left over eggs I pour some Maggie Soy Sauce.The egg was not too boiled and this is why the shape of totoro look so bad.

It is pack with Orange Vitagen - I steal from  Olivia! :)

I also filled the bread with nutella and strawberry jam. Chinese New Year is around the corner and my fridge really and only cater mandarin orange. lol 

I cannot buy any fruits as we will spend our new year in Penang for 1st two days and the third day will fly back to my hometown - "The Land below the Wind"* - Sabah. 

* The land below the wind is called because of its location just south of the typhoon-prone region around the Philippines. :)

Mango Sago Dessert

Mango Sago Dessert is an Asian sweet that originates from Hong Kong. I always want to try this and this round is a good excuse for me to try this whereas it was hot sunny day. This is such a refreshing chill dessert to have on a hot and high humid temperature here. :)



100 gram Sago*
400 gram mangoes
100 gram caster sugar
200ml evaporated milk
400ml Marigold PeelFresh Mango Juice
Red Currant or Pomelo (options)

  1. Soak the sago in cold water for 15 minutes and drain. This will wash away some of the starch from the sago. 
  2. In a saucepan of boiling water add the sago.
  3. Cook, stirring the sago over medium-high heat. When the sago becomes partially cooked (translucent) turn the heat off.
  4. Cover with a saucepan lid and set aside, allowing the steam to cook the sago through.
  5. When the sago is translucent, drain and run under cold water. 
  6. Process the mango until it becomes pureed.
  7. Add the evaporated milk and caster sugar.
  8. Distribute the mixture evenly among the ramekins or bowls. 
  9. Add the sago and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until cool. Serve cold with extra mango pieces if preferred. I added some fresh red currant as topping.  
* Sago is edible starch and that can be easily found from any grocery shop or hypermarket. 

LINE Moon Porridge

Mother in law is having serious ulcer for past few days. It make her less appetite with any food. I decide to cook porridge for family and really thanks to 5AM Bento mummy idea. She gave me the idea even it is porridge can also have some art in it. ;p

I cook porridge with onion and vegetarian mock meat. I made the LINE Moon for Olivia and it is made by nori and little of ketchup for blusher. It is pretty easy.

Cutezcute Panda

It was a lovely sunday. I always want to try out using cutecutez mould to make this for my family.

The bread you can pre-mould on character you like and toast it. I may over-toast and lead the bread cannot easily bend.

The breakfast is served with eggs, sausages and salads. Salads are derived from lettuce, red currant and grapes and little but of sesame seed salad oil.
