Bento #47 - Hubby's Bento

This is hubby's Tueday's bento.

Kimberly had severe nosebleed throughout the night before Tuesday. I thought it is prudent to keep her at home. It proved to be the right move, because she get nose bleed twice throughout the day itself. She got tons of homework the next day, though, from her absence on Tuesday.

We took her to ENT before, and the ENT doctor says Kimberly need to undergo a simple surgery to divert the blood from the broken blood vessel to another vessel. But we thought she was too young. So we just keep her from rubbing her nose too hard till she is old enough.

Anyhow, Ashley, seeing her chieh chieh at home, didn't want to go to school either. So both kids stayed at home. So no bento for the kids nor for myself.

Only hubby's bento.

Bento #47


Hubby's bento is leftover tofu from yesterday night's dinner, with fried onion with oyster sauce on top.

On the left container is a piece of unagi cut into 3 equal slices. That's the protein taken care of. I added 3 yellow cherry tomatoes and some slices of red pepper for vege.

For carbo and additional protein, hubby had tofu pouch stuffed with calrose rice. I wasn't sure if the tofu pouch were to face up or down. I see most kawaii Japanese sites having it face up, with seaweed face punched out with nori puncher. But I also see traditional Japanese food site having them face down.


Unsure, I tried them face up.

Hoping for some feedback from veteran Japanese food cooks like LZmommy, Blessed Mum of 3 or Bento Pet !!!

I added some daikon topping on rice stuffed tofu pouch and divide each individual tofu pouch with slices of cucumber and red pepper.

Packed them into this 2 tier bento box.


Hubby had a rushed schedule today and was grateful to be able to grab a quick bite in his office instead of having to go out for lunch with his business associates or usual lunch partners.

Will post Wednesday and Thursday's bento soon !

Happy bento-ing , folks !!

  • MG, hubby got bento probably because the kids don't need any that day. ha ha. Frankly, I can't live up to his expectations every day. For me, my bento for myself is more like chak-fun, you know, mixed rice, leftovers from yesterday. But hubby rather eat out with cronies if I were to supply him that !

    Deana. tell me about it. It's harder to make a bento for hubby than for kids. ha ha.

    Jacss. I got mine from Isetan, leh. got a lot !! Maybe it was like sold out during the weekends? I love eels too, but the kids only like the fleshier fatter ones. We don't eat that very often. We alternate with salmon or cod or pomfret and kurau.

    Face side up, issit? That is good to know. Maybe either way works?

  • You're fantastic! Running a one-woman show also got time to make bento for hubby. Yahlah, making bento for hubby is harder than making bento for the kids. I thought about it, and told hubby he better 'network' during his lunch instead.... hehe

    As you said, traditional inari is placed face down as it just contain rice. Those with other ingredients are placed face up, maybe to let people see what they'll be eating?

  • read about Kimberly's nose bleed on Charmaine's blog..will get the 2 girls to pop over.. Hope its nothing serious...its can be quite scary for mommy..

    I almost drool when i saw your today bento! wow, the unagi looks so yummy!

    like 3lilangels said, the traditional ones are faced downward but I prefer it upwards so its not just carbo..(HB will nag if it only contain carbo ;P)

  • Personally, I think it doesn't matter whether it face down or up :)
