A mother asked his boy "Do you like your lunchbox today?" The boy replied "Yes!".
As the boy grows older each day and becomes more vocal, he begins to ask "Can you make Lion, Panda, Dinosaur, Giraffe....etc??". Next, he just asks you to keep it simple or no cute stuff because he has already grown up......

This was one of the prettiest peacock I ever made. It has become more difficult to prepare a karaben nowadays due to lesser or no bento made for the boy at all. However, I had the opportunity to do so for the month of April because my boy was selected to attend 5 lessons of Science Olympiad after school hours. He requested me to bring lunch for him. And I did for the past weeks. But I realized my bento-ing skill has become rusty and was not able to create a presentable one. As usual, I asked him what would he like to eat for his lunch the night before. Then I kept on suggesting some of his favourite food which came to my mind until my boy stopped me. Unexpectedly, his reply was "Don't tell me, I like surprises!" Feeling motivated and encouraged, I was in such a high spirit making his bento that my creation simply at its best. The peacock is made of thinly sliced (Chinese) flat fish cake, patterned nori/corn kernels with a drop of ketchup (for its feather), carrot (for its beak) and tiny broccoli floret (for its crown).
In his lunchbox, he has :-
Fried mee hoon with cabbage, carrot and fishcake
Pan-fried gyoza (homemade)
