IMG_4421Hi, I’m Samantha. I’m not a professional chef and I’ve never been to culinary school. I’m just an ordinary, regular and average mom, crazy about making mess in the kitchen.

I started my very first Bento making in December 2008, when I was heavily pregnant with my second daughter. It was to let my elder daughter to eat independently after the arrival of her younger sister. I was very lucky and blessed that my creations never failed to impress my elder daughter and it made her looked forward to the next meal. Now, she has her little sister fighting over which character they should get during mealtime. It makes meal time extremely fun.

It’s lovely to meet you. I hope you enjoy it here.
