Valentine’s Day Giveaway!

Featuring: Tze

Okay, maybe not ALL of them.

And here’s another giveaway! …Okay, so it’s second hand. I’m giving away my Ojyu onigiri box, because I hardly use it (like twice before). I do admit it’s quite handy to store guacamole and tortilla crisps in. :D Here it is:


The lower compartment is microwaveable (without the lids, so only the shallow black part!). The box is very sturdy and doesn’t absorb smells. I’d recommend hand washing to avoid damaging the print (but I’m sure it can handle a bit of scrubbing). Capacity is 100 ml + 150 ml.

How to win this?
1. Go to the Mêh facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/mehblog and Like any comic from the Comics photo album, or any post on the Wall.
2. The winner will be randomly drawn and announced next Tuesday, 21 February.
3. Unlimited Likes allowed of course, but only one entry per person. :p Previous Likes don’t count.
4. Being a fan is not necessary to enter this draw.

Cooking Gallery’s contest is ending tomorrow. but as I won’t have time tomorrow I had to make a couple of bentos today (plus last week I was back home home so couldn’t make any either)!

PS: I didn’t make all of them today. The smaller photos are photos taken with my mobile phone of bentos I made in the past.

A Bento Contest!

Featuring: Tze

Cooking Gallery is hosting a bento contest, and you can win prizes like bento sets (look at all those accessories!) and the Just Bento cookbook. Wow! :O

(Yes, hyphen missing between ‘kimono’ and ‘style’…)
Now, when you click on the link… DON’T be put off by the amazing piece of art on the top of the page. The rules state that your bento doesn’t have to be a charaben (Wiki); one of those lunches that look like they require hours of cutting, moulding and colouring foods to achieve the wanted result.
I guess I will opt for colourful, healthy(ish) and… TASTY.

The contest ends on December 20th so there’s still time enough to practice. :) Is anyone else joining the contest? I think that, even if I don’t win, it will still be fun to do, plus I’ll be more motivated to put more effort into making bentos.

Here’s the one I made yesterday, but I don’t think I’ll use this one to participate… it’s not exactly spectacular. But hey, I got to practice taking yummy-looking photos. :p
