The Penguin Sisters Bento & Balinese Grapes Smoothie

by - Sunday, May 25, 2014


A simple cute post for today.... I'm still working on Kyoto photos by resizing and putting watermark on them. So, while waiting for them, let's come across with today's cuties ^^. 

I made this penguin onigiries some weeks ago, inspired by a penguin onigiri photo tutorial collage made by a Japanese bento artist, Moriazu *thank you for the cute idea :D. I just love my penguin girls; they're just so pretty, cute and fluffy hehehe. The yummy buddies featured cute fish made of beef sausage, fried battered John Dory fillet, and omelet squares.


The looseleaf lettuce I put on today's bento is special, as it's pick up freshly from my garden. Yes, it's homegrown! ^^. Since I'm no longer living in town with easy bento ingredients access, I need to grow some at home. The taste of homegrown product is better and fresher :D. Not to mention, the proud and happy feeling as the sensation hehehe. Gardening, it's a good thing I can do on the weekend now after moving from boardinghouse ^^

It seems that we're approaching the dry season here. The weather is just getting hotter and hotter. Chilled juice is something that must be available everyday for saving us from "evaporation" lol :D. And this Balinese Grapes Smoothie is our recent favorite at home.

I hope this post refreshes your day, see you on the next post! ^^

  4. @Mommy Yenny: Thank you Mbak Yenny ^^. Haha I actually used the recipe for blueberry smoothie... As you know, fresh blueberry is rarely available here and the price can cost me the earth, that's why substituting it with our abundant and totally affordable local product is a great choice :D

  12. @Ming: Thank you dear ^^. Yes, lettuce is one of bento making's soulmates. When we buy it, at many times the leftover is just to much. So great to have it in your garden, just pick it everytime you need it :D. It also grows quickly ^^

  14. @Zouzou: Thank you so much Zouzou :). I always use natural light especially natural back lighting (filtered with thin white fabric/curtain is better). I then put 2 white foam boards in front of the subject (left and right side) to bounce the light from the back and to prevent the front face of the object from darkness :D. By the way, you got a very great bento collection ^^
