Frosty the Snowman
Was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal
Frosty the Snowman
Is a fairytale they say
He was made of snow
But the children know
How he came to life one day
There must have been some magic
In that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around

Thumpety thump thump
Thumpety thump thump

Look at Frosty go
Thumpety thump thump
Thumpety thump thump

Over the hills of snow

Another X'mas bento. Yesterday shoppingmum fixed a Christmas tree bento for her kids. The bento is very nice and seems like not hard to fix. Thus, I decided to give a try. Instead of using Swiss roll, I used "bread roll" (roll artificial crab meat with seaweed and bread).

After setting up the bread rolls X'mas tree, I put a cocktail sausage as tree trunk. The two frosty snowmen, head is made of fishball whereas body is quail egg. I joined them with a long spaghetti strip. These hat picks are very suitable for snowman, but I only have four. The snowman looked much more winsome after putting on red scarf. I added snow flake on its body.

I also fixed two Santa Claus in each bento using cocktail sausage (mini sausage). But the sausages has deeper colour. The mustache is cut from light cheese. I wanted to make a hat for the santas, but I was running out of time this morning.

Lastly, I sprinkled the bento with some rainbow sprinkles. Teng teng teng teng....

~ Hohoho... Santa Claus is coming, with a bag of gifts ~

Bento #125 - Santa Claus is Coming to Town 。。。

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He's making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

Christmas is just around the corner, to welcome this warm and fragrant festival, I prepared Santa Claus in bento today. A Santa with sausage nose and cheese mustache, wearing a seaweed christmas hat.

Sorry, I did not have time to snap photo on how to make the santa as I need to fix five santas in total. Basically, the sandwich filling is mayo egg and chicken floss, I used triangular rice mould to cut the sandwich and it was sealed nicely using the mould. I packed some persimmon into the bento.

Merry Christmas To U !!
especially those who celebrate this event...

Skytrex-Adventure (Taman Pertanian Malaysia)

Family outing to Taman Pertanian Malaysia was last minute decision. Why TPM? The entrance is very much cheaper compare with Genting Highland, besides, it's a good opportunity for kids in city to get closer to the nature.

Just some brief description on the park. TPM is an agricultural park with wide variety of attractions such as Four Seasons House, Cactus Farm, Animal Farm, Padi Field, Star Fruits Farm and etc. In TPM, you can also enjoy activities like cycling (bicycle rental shop available), PaintBall, Fishing and also camping. I am not going to describe further about TPM but keen to write more about one of the organized outdoor ‘eco-recreational cum educational’ activity - Skytrex Adventure. This park is located inside TPM, you need to take the in-house shuttle bus as it is located 3 kilometers into the forest.

Look at this two boys, they are so brave, I really admire thier courageousness. They dare to take up the challenges and complete almost all the 15 adventure games, from easy to difficult.

Isaac and his cousin with all the safety equipment on and ready for the challenges.

They were paying attention on the instruction given and tried to practice it.

Climbed up the ladder with full confidence.

Remove and hook the pulley.

Hold the pulley tightly and move slowly on the string.

If the kid is tall enough, he can hold the upper string to stablize the body. Unfortunately Isaac can't reach the upper string, he needs to depend on the pulley to stand firmly on the string. Mummy was sweating along the way (@_^).

Yes, Isaac did it finally. Can see his face is full of proud. (^_^)

Look at the height, it's scary especially to a kid. But no worry and no hurry, walk slowly, you can do it for sure. (*_*)

"I am scare, but I will not easily give up."

Forgot to mention, pre-booking is required to play the game. But you can still try on your luck, if the participant is not full, you will stand a chance to play, just like us.

Fun with Bento Making (2)

This is second time the kids learn to make bento. Last time, I let them cut the cheese and decorate thier own sandwich; this time, I let them make the sandwich by themselves, with thier favourite cutters and I am only there to help.

I have five students this time, my nephew missed out the 1st session.

Again, scramble for nice picks and starts decorating thier bento.

Jonas's bento, which I think the nicest among all.

Isaac's bento, the only one who use Mickey cutter, his favourite Disney cartoon.

Samantha's bento, with most sandwiches in it. I realized that she loves Stitch, she made two Stitch sandwiches. (^_^)

Charmaine's bento. To match the bento box, she made Pooh and Piglet sandwiches.

Charlene's bento. Same as her sister, made Pooh and Piglet sandwiches, but side face of Pooh.

Let's have a group picture before putting the sandwiches into our mouth. (^_^)

My dining room was a mess after the session... But doesn't matter, as long as the kids enjoy (*_*).
