DIY bento pick

Its hard to find bento picks outside of japan. So if your crafty, you can make your own. All you need are toothpicks, labels and sticky tape. A colour laser printer or a mono with green textas

Lunch: Bacco QVB

On level 3 in the centre of QVB, one of Sydney's prettiest buildings, a new Italian wine bar and pasticceria has opened. With such a cute name, Bacco (hehehe!) is full of pretty food, gorgeous pastries. (my first thought) and from the looks of it, some interesting booze.
Here's what we had to for lunch.

Italian Hot Chocolate - Four

Home cured Aust. Kingfish with Orange, Spring herbs and Toasted Brioche - Nineteen

Bruschetta ROMANA
Wood fired sourdough bread with olive tapenade and semidried tomato - Seventeen

Panini - FILETTO DI MANZO - Thirteen
Wood fired, grain fed eye fillet with rocket, Roma tomatoes and Dijon mayonnaise

We were too full to have dessert T_T wahh! but as its next to the office, I'll be frequenting soon!

Today I saw...

New Graffiti art in Newtown.
The stencil art is so nice. I wish taggers would learn.

I like how bare the girls back is and the glance over her shoulder at you.
Is she inviting you to climb on her back? Would you dare?

Decisions. Decisions.

Today I saw ...

The curiosity in the blue eyes of a child.

Last night, I saw a documentary on Mr. Squiggle, Australia's longest running series. I was taken by the creative magic that each drawing drew on. And how important the skill of creating something out of nothing. And the sheer joy! We miss out these days. Everything is packaged. Perfect and sterile. I imagine we're missing out on something.

So today, I make something creative. I need some red paper, a pair of scissors, tape and string! Wait and find out!

Today I will start this series,  The procedure is every day to go out and see something beautiful and post it online.  I have noticed a little too much negativity in people around me, so to react, I will post something positive.

Found! Yoghurt Tubs

At last! I have found the perfect yogurt tubs for bentos and they wont cost you an arm and leg!

Seen here is a Decor Dressing Tub with 2 spoons of plain Greek yogurt with a dollop of strawberry jam.

Decor's Dressing Tubs, come in 35ml, 75ml and 150ml.  They've been out for a while, but I hadn't seen the bento potential. Until today!

They only come in a clear option, but that is easily fixed with some stickers :). I tried paper stickers, but they started to peel off, so I went searching and found some bling-bling jewels!

Voila!  Husband will be a bit put off, but hey he'll live. hehehe!

Yoghurt can now be added to our bentos without a mess.

Happy Bear and 3 Grunts

On Youtube, I was delighted to find old v.clips of the Trapdoor. A
claymation cartoon that starred, Bert and my favourite spider Grunt.

The three things on the right remind me of him. Hehehe. All i need is that skittish-squeal sound effect and I'll be thrown back to the 80's

Oh, Big Bear hides curry sauce for the chicken nuggets and rice.

Hearts have feelings and therefore deserve faces.

When I make bento faces, I try to make each one different.

One cute, one sad, one weird

It all happened when the "V" fell incorrectly. Then its like you're on speed, and everything else falls swiftly into place and then before you know it... Vampire Bear! Ta-Dah!
