a special 1OOth bento and bento gadgets giveaway!!

this is my 100th bento posting! wow, that means all in all i would have packed at least 200 snacks for my 2 kids.

i prepared a special themed bento close to my heart – no prizes for guessing! =)… hello kitty, a sleepy one holding its favourite teddy ! this is also made to feast your eyes, a little thank you gesture from me to you for dropping by. i hope you like it as much as i enjoyed preparing it ! =)

to mark this occasion, i will be giving away a set of express bento gadgets in a lucky draw. all the bento gadgets you ever need to make an express charaben bento, for beginner or seasoned bento-ist alike. i have participated quite a few bento contests in this bento community. although i did not win any (yet), i enjoyed every bit of the ‘process’ of preparing and registering for the contest. it’s now my pleasure to host a lucky draw. =)

the above are the items i am giving away. one lucky winner will be picked randomly.

i personally feel some of these gadgets are a must have. items like the smiley puncher and pincer (to hold and paste those tiny nori eyes to food) cut down preparation time significantly vs free hand cutting and pasting. another ‘die die’ must have for me is the stainless steel teddy cutter cum rice mould. i can think of a total of 9 ‘express’ cute animal faces using only this cutter. i’ve used this cutter the most to create bear, frog, dog, to quickly name 3. can you name the other 6 animals?

i will be completing my bento-able t-shirt picture series. perhaps i can start another blog series creating cute faces using only this cutter eh? =)

well, if you like me, have all these items, would you like to have an extra set? =)

there are a few simple ways to register for this lucky draw, you decide,

(a) leave a comment below to register your entry. if you like, tell us what is your favourite charaben, eg, mine is hello kitty. is yours a disney character, cute faces, flowers, or insects, anyone? lol! one chance per person

(b) register as a fan on my ‘facebook’ bento gadgets shop for one extra chance to win. just click ‘like this’. i love shopping and buying bento gadgets so much. why not share the joy of my loot?, and continue with my shopping and buying spree. hehe.. =)

(c) please help share this joyous event so that others can join in by linking this post to your blog, and get 2 extra chances to win. kindly leave a comment below and link your page so that i can record the extra chances to you.

(d) sign up to subscribe my blog and get one chance

register in all (a, b, c, d) to get a maximum of 5 chances to win per person.

i will close the registration on 31st july 2010, 11.59pm singapore time.
