Thank U note to Teachers, a 3-eye monster

Bento No. 280
My son started playgroup with his current preschool and continued with the same kindergarten till now.  He is now 4 years++.  Fort the past years, I have been shuttling between school and home by buses and trains initially until the preschool shifted to a new premises. Because the new location was nowhere near the MRT station,  I began to drive to/from school.  I love the school because of the lower kid-teacher ratio, great programmes and fantastic outings.  There was this personal touch and warmth back in the old premises at Devonshire. Teachers were caring, responsive and constantly providing me feedback not only on his progress but also behaviour/action that amused them.  I appreciate the effort they took photos during lessons and playtimes and forwarded it to us.  These pictures were precious and definitely keepsakes for us!  Non-teaching staff and aunties - they were great and I even engaged small talks with some at times.  At the new location, Tanglin, it is refreshing with bigger space, brand new furnitures/fittings along with a rooftop garden. However, we decided to change to another kindergarten that is nearer to our home. 

To express my gratitude, I carved a 'Thank U' on the apple wedges (not so clearly visible in the picture above).  And a three-eye monster which I mixed steamed soft pumpkin into the white rice to form the onigiri (my boy's request).  Green peas/nori were used to create the eyes before attaching to the onigiri with angel hair pasta.   At the bottom, he has pork bulgogi that I bought the marinated meat from Cold Storage because I still do not know how to prepare this dish yet.  On the sides, he has steamed pumpkin, green peas and black grapes.

Unfortunately, he came down with fever on Thursday and therefore, unable to bid farewell to all the teachers and classmates on Friday, the last day of school.

Thank you teachers for the guidance and love!
