Baby Jack Skellingtons Bento

Happy Halloween! So happy to be back on the blogging track again :D. This baby Jack Skellingtons bento (yes, two skellingtons :D) is the last Halloween-themed bento for this year. This bento was specially made for my pregnant workmate, Mrs. D. She opened my blog everyday and always told me that she was craving for my bento, LOL! She also told me that she was craving for spaghetti, so I made her spaghetti bento with quail egg baby Jack Skellingtons (why baby? Because she is now expecting her first baby :D). As the spaghetti’s buddies, I put boneless fried chicken, tamago with chopped green onion and fried baby anchovies, boiled broccoli, boiled sugar snap peas *and the peas*, cherry tomato, redcurrant, and a blueberry (yes, only a single blueberry ;p).

Oya, I also bring you a funny story for today’s post. I don’t know… I’m supposed to be upset by this thing, but I feel the conversed way instead, I think its funny hehe. My friend, F, just came back from Bali for a short training course before she goes to Aussie for her scholarship. When she had lunch in one of restaurants in Bali, she noticed a big menu picture put on the restaurant’s wall and one of the photos has my name on it (the watermark = copyright sign and the name, Tata Bonita :D). She was very surprised at that time – she told me that she was also confused whether she was supposed to be upset or to be proud and happy since my photo “has a career” in Bali, LOL. She took a picture of my “stolen” photo with her mobile phone and showed it to me after she was back from Bali. Laughing was the first thing that I could do – I just could think that the people who made and used that menu pict were very ridiculous and very stupid indeed. Couldn’t they look for another pict that doesn’t have obvious water mark on it? As you can see from the pict below, the copyright sign and the name “Tata Bonita” are obviously written.

I put my watermark on the center of the food, so if anyone wants to crop the pict it will result a strange pict since the food will be looked incomplete and cut on its middle part. F had a big LOL when I showed her the complete picture from my blog. It is the picture of Tempe Bakar Bumbu Rujak (grilled spiced tempeh) that was cooked by my best friend, Tiwi, from our boardinghouse’s closet kitchen when we were still university students. Tiwi told me that she wanted her food appeared on my blog. So when she cooked Ayam dan Tempe Bakar Bumbu Rujak (grilled spiced chicken and tempeh) for her boyfriend, she asked me to food-stylize and photograph her food – and I lend the camera from my friend, Cebbie *I didn’t have a pocket camera at that time, I used camera from my mobile phone :D*. This is the complete picture that they *the photo thieves* cropped:

Happy Halloween! Have a great weekend! :D

  12. LOL that is so funny indeed! Awful as well, but at least they're not getting money for *your* picture. Still, they should pay you! I would love a bite of that yummy tempeh -- do you have a recipe?

    It's very kind of you to make such a nice Halloween bento for your pregnant colleague. Poor you two that you have to work this Sunday!
