I know, I know, our school year is about to end and it’s too late for me to start bento lunch for my daughter, but that doesn’t stop me from trying to learn how to make them.  And definitely I would want to make them next school year.

Bento boxes are originated in Japan, a Japanese cuisine.  It is said that the traditional bento box consists of rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables, usually in a box-shaped container.

I recently learned baking, and still learning, and now I wanted to put my creativity to another stage.  I want to put a new skill in my ‘Mommy Resume’.  Since the school year will end this week, I still have time to get tools for this new project and get inspirations.

Now, that I shared it here, the creations will be shared in my daughter’s blog, Little Zoie’s Steps, as the school start in June.

If you know where to get tools for bento boxes, I am all ears I would love to hear what you will have to share.  Thanks in advance!


We were staying at my in-laws house for the past couple of months and since summer is here, we decided to give our little boy his first hair cut.

We had to give him a cut because his hair hasn’t experienced one since birth.  Lols!  Also, it’s starting to get hot, his long hair style needs quite a trim, just to freshen his feeling during summer.

Wanna see his hair cut?

The little man was sleeping when I took this picture.  This is a his milestone because he was really behaved when the barber was cutting his hair, I thought he’s going to cry but he’s one brave little man.  🙂 So brave!

Hope he’ll be cool enough this summer!



As I was thinking of what games to conduct on Little Zoie’s birthday party at school, I wanted to add our usual ‘Pabitin’ game.  Preparing that game will need lots of goodies and candies which I know needs additional budget and I don’t have that for the moment.

Still reflecting on what goodies-giving-game I could add in the program, I ended searching YouTube for a DIY party piñata.  Initially, I found paper mache piñata which is too tedious work for me, then I finally found one that only needs boxes with a flap opening, sealed with a not-so-tight masking tape.

This DIY piñata doesn’t cost a lot since I already have the main materials: the box, glue, masking tape and lots of candies accumulated from Halloween to Christmas.  Don’t worry, I checked the best before dates of each pack of candies and I did not include those gummy candies.  I am hesitant of their expiration date and because I am giving them to kids, better to be sure so I did not include them in the piñata than have the poor kids eat them.

Anyway, my additional materials for this project was the printed image of Princess Sofia of Sofia the First, the birthday party theme; purple, white and green crepe papers; and violet and green yarns.  I was supposed to print a Prince James image to put on my second piñata but I wasn’t able to do so.  It was rather late when I decided to add another party piñata with Prince James picture.

I made two piñatas.  Purple one for the girls and the green one is for the boys.  Since the initial plan was only one piñata, I have only taken a few photos of how I did the purple piñata.
