What did you guys did on valentines?
I know this valentines post is late, but better late then never... plus it's still the month of looovveee..
I never was the type of person who are really into the whole Valentines idea. love the history of St. Valentine but I believe everyday should filled with love. There won't be any surprise romantic dinner on Valentines or such cus nowdays all girls are expecting something on valentines.
But, this year I'm planning something different.
Me and my boy, are planning a Bento Battle. For those who don't know about Japanese Bento lunch box. Google it.. haha. It's like a super "kawai" lunch box, you made yourself. could be a game character or animal.
I've been awed by Bento lunch box for awhile now..
but I always thought to myself "daymn how many hours do I need to make one, I dont have that much time in the morning"
This Idea for valentines come up, while me and my boy having lunch together. We work at the same office, and 90% I always bring my own lunch box. So why don't this valentines, we make bento for each other ( I love eating his fried rice lunch box. He's good in making friend rice. Sometimes we switch lunch boxes)
but to make it special.. we will make it a battle. The audience fav is the winner. The audience the other office staffs.
A day before valentines... somehow everyone knows that we're making a bento battle, and they get exited. And I got more pressure to perform well. F*ck!!!
I mean, I'm a virgo.. if you believe those astrological bull (which I do). Virgo is known for the perfectionism.
So I youtube, bought all the supplies (which I also share with him. fair game) I went home, design the bento and prepare few of the decoration.
I woke up at 4.30 AM ( I usually wake up around 6AM) I fried cut boiled and I didn't cut myself. yey
I love baking but cooking.. is not my forte'.. :-p
I got the the office and most of the staff were like.."I wanna see", but I waited till my boy got to the office..
and this is how it looks like
|Bento by me, the rice suppose to be His face. but the fishball is my fav|
|This is what he made for me.. full of sausages, grill heart tomato cherry.|
Overall we ask ALL the staff including my branch manager, and our security guy.. I win only by one point.
but we didn't eat it straight away, we ate it at lunch.. and OH.. how my heart breaks when I saw him scoop the rice. lol.. I don't have the heart to eat mine, but I eat it anyway (a girl gotta eat)
SO, our valentines ended up with a full stomach... and dark round eyes (needd moooreee sleeep)
I AM NOT gonna make this bento anytime sooner, maybe on weekend picnic.
Have you ever make a bento?? will you try to make one??
Have a good nite!
