Obento - A packed meal for lunch & picnic

Almost everyday, I have to think of new ideas to cook our lunch. Usually, I make bento to bring to work or school. A good bento does not only contain great nutrients for the body, it is also pleasant for people to enjoy his / her bento.

Many people wants to try to make bento, but the common worries are that it may take up much time in the morning hence dropped the ideas or worry about food spoilage in hot weather. Many mothers prepare bento for them children in the morning, it usually take less than 30 minutes if the ingredients are pre-prepared the night before. 

Most important advice to remember in preparing bento is that all food must be fully cooked, cool before packing them. This will prevent spoilage.


Therefore today, I made a bento which was taught to me by my mother. I used to bring this to school when I’m younger. It is very simple to make and usually take less than 45minutes of preparation and cooking time. Let’s start.
