Scavenger Hunt

In case you are wondering, I am still bringing lunch to work everyday but now I have reduced from bento making to scavenger hunting.

You see, April - Sept are the busiest time in school. Honestly I couldn't find the energy to wake up everyday at 5am to make bentos during this period. So I am either making something really simple like cold noodles or I wipe off whatever that was left on the dining tables of my mother/ mother-in-law, depending on which day. I just need to heat up the food by microwaving them for 5mins. It was so convenient, the extra hour of sleep is so tempting, and I grew to be lazy! Another reason is I didn't have new bento ideas. I had repeated the bento ideas a zillion times already.

I sure hope I will be able to find the energy to make nicer bentos again, soon!!

Jia you! You are my inspiration!

BTW, like you told me, scavenging is a good way of bento making.

Cannot waste food!

(Overnight food has more 'flavour' locked in!)

all you need is a trigger...*wink* to get that 'drive' that once burned you with enthusiasm... and you'll be back to 'that you' again. *wink*
