Bento #5

We were invited to a BBQ yesterday afternoon, so I packed 2 lunch boxes for the boys. 

For Marcus


Organic teddy bear pasta cooked in stock, with corn and carrots. Half boiled egg, one chicken nugget and half avocado. 3 organic cheese Mouse shaped biscuits on some cashew nuts and a mashmallow.

For Nicholas


Nicholas had the same food except the nugget and avocado was cut up for easy feeding and no sweet, nuts and biscuits. 

The bento created a big commotion at the BBQ as the ladies gathered to woo and ahh over the food presentation which embarrassed Marcus slightly. Haha!

Val, it doesn't take much time really to make the bento but some planning required as to what to prepare and how to present the food. Of course having all the bento accessories at hand is essential to create a pretty bento.:)

Contentedmom, thanks! You are making me blush! On a daily basis, I remind myself to do my best. :) As for shichida, I do believe in the system. More details in my older posts. But Marcus only attended 1 term, so I don't think it has much effect on him. I think it has a lot to do with how we nurture him since young, plus whatever qualities that are innate of him.

i think so too...as a chinese saying goes " 70% is pre determined and 30% is by hardwork". Do you have to put in much effort to get Marcus to do his work?...I need to coax and bribe just to get nicole to read a book. sigh....she prefers to do maths...

Marcus is very self-motivated when it comes to things which interest him, like Lego, reading and drawing etc.. so we never ever have to coax him to do those. We don't do much (in fact nothing!) in other areas unless he is keen. Once he shows interest, we optimize learning opportunities. Else, we just leave it. He will learn in time. :)
