Something you all have yet to know about me is that I love bento and bento boxes. If you don't know what bentos are then you really are missing out. They are basically just small lunchboxes and you fill them completely with food, usually cooked items and things like rice. They originate from Japan and everybody there has a bento everyday and theirs are usually very appealing to the eye. I first fell in love with Bentos when I came across this lovely lady's blog:Lunch in a Box. The blog's author, Biggie has written basically everything you need to know to start bento-ing, she's a genius. She really needs to write a book about it!

I myself haven't made many bentos before but here is the one I had today:

The bento box is a double tiered one and the lower container had a pumpkin & ricotta gourmet roll(bought at my local deli) and ketchup in a sauce container in it. The upper container had a little salad of snow pea sprouts, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and coriander. Yummy! I'm going to have the rest of the sausage roll tomorrow.

In other news, I went to China last year with my school and I took lots and lots of photos. I recently got round(a year later :D) to getting the photos printed but when I went to put them on a USB, the photos just came up as a black screen with "invalid image" on them. I was freaking out, I couldn't find any way to retrive them. But luckily I found I still have most of them on my camera memory card. Now I just have to re-edit all 800+ of them......Gotta love technology.
