Halloween Bento

Halloween Bento Box: Mummy, Jack-o’-lantern, and Frankenstein

Last Halloween I thought of surprising my kids with a Halloween bento box for lunch. I didn’t have much inside our refrigerator back then so I had to come up with a simple Halloween-inspired bento without using a lot of ingredients. The idea just came to me when I saw a rectangular lunch kit that I bought from Saizen. Three Halloween characters (or heads) for the three portions.. why not? Ingredients: Cooked Rice Oyster Sauce UFC Color Crazee Ketchup in Outstanding Orange and GoGo Green Nori sheets Cheese Slices Tools: Lunch box Silicone Baking Cups Bento (carving) knife Bento scissors...

oh, Bento! Cafe by Kat Ishizuka in Nuvali

A day before 2016 ended, my family visited Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. I spotted this really cute cafe in Solenad mall and I couldn’t help but get excited when I saw the word BENTO. 🙂 oh, Bento! Cafe By Kat Ishizuka just recently celebrated its 1 year anniversary. Kat Ishizuka, the owner, launched oh, Bento! out of her love for food and creativity. We actually have the same reason why we started making bento boxes — our kids were picky-eaters so we need to find some ways to get them to eat a variety of food. When I entered the...

Ajinomoto: Kathryn and Liza’s Kitchen Best Friend

The kitchen used to be a scary place for young people and cooking was a daunting task reserved for mothers and household helps. But technology played a role in guiding people around the kitchen. Nowadays, new cooks search online for cooking videos or check out “food hacks” to be able to produce any dish they want that they can, in turn, show off on social media. Young celebrities Kathryn Bernardo and Liza Soberano also enjoy cooking for their loved ones. They are the newest tandem to endorse Ajinomoto Umami Seasoning. Apart from what can be found in the Internet, Kathryn and...

Cheers to Life. Cheers to Everyday.

Cheers to Precious Memories Roughly three months before my 24th birthday, I gave birth to a baby boy. He unexpectedly became the center of my world and I found myself getting excited with every waking moment. After 4 years, we received another blessing and we called him ‘marshmallow face’. He has touched our hearts since then. My children are my everything. Yes, as cliche as it may sound, they are my EVERYTHING. And I will never forget the feeling of overwhelming joy when I first held them in my arms. I am a better person because of them, and for...

Pokémon To-Go: Pikachu Bento Box

When Pokémon Go was officially launched here in PH, me and my family joined the craze and soon after, my eldest started bugging me to make a Pokémon bento box. And so I gave in, but only 2 weeks after his request because I couldn’t quite imagine how I can make a decent Pokémon bento. But I did it, and I’m glad that I took up the challenge. I’ve only done a few charaben before and I used bread for the most of them. This time for my Pokémon bento I also used white bread as my main because I...

The Sour-Savory Goodness of the new AJI-SINIGANG Cube

I love Sinigang and my family requests for it on a regular basis. The irresistible sour-savory soup is just perfect during rainy days, and even in summer! Sinigang Soup is a ‘must’ in most Pinoy households’ weekly menu. It has been observed though that most people using sinigang mixes available in the market would need to add other savory and meaty seasonings i.e. pork cube and all-in-one seasonings to achieve the ideal sinigang taste, which is not just about sourness but savory taste as well.  Well, here’s the new Ajinomoto® Sinigang Cube — all that you will ever need to cook...
