    Bento...

    Hmm... I am not much a sandwich fan.

    There was a time when I was Japanese crazy, I occasionally prepare my own Bento for sch. You can create your own lunch spread. For a quick and easy meal, I include:

    - a serving of rice mixed with a little rice vinegar for that sushi taste
    - a serving of tuna with squirts of lemon juice or my own tuna mayo

    Haha...

        Nowadays the weather is so hot to even step out of air-con room. I so dread to go out for lunch and worse still to queue up and look for seats.

        I have been bringing sandwiches for the past 2 weeks and it's getting boring until I saw another colleague yesterday.

        She had cooked her maggie mee in the morning, drained it, added cooked mushroom slices, some boiled vege and put them in a tupperware. Then she heated a canned sichuan soup in the microwave and pour over them.

        sounds yummy right? and healthy too.

          You can also try:

          Pasta:

          1. cooking pasta the night before.. drained them and put in tupperware, and store in fridge
          2. suggest you cook the sauce separately and in separate container as well. ( you can add in basics like mushroom to your sauce)

          store all in the fridge

          next morning, bring to office, put in fridge. When its time for lunch just reheat them in microwave!

          Some of my colleagues, they bring their leftover food from the night before. But my mum dont like me to do that she says its no good.

          If not how about frying some noodles, add an omelette, nuggets etc.

              - chicken breast meat/ thigh fillets (2 pieces - can feed about 2 pple)
              - mayo - i love those jap ones (personal preference)
              - cucumber (1) - chopped
              - celery (1) - chopped (optional)
              - pepper
              - salt
              - salad greens - chopped (optional)
              - lemon juice


              Method:
              - cook chicken meat in a pot of water
              - drain water and rinse it under cold water
              - chopped up the chicken into bite-sized pieces, set aside

              - in a bowl, add in mayo (3 tablespoons at least - i use mine dry and not too soggy)
              - mix in chopped cucumber and celery (make sure they are not all wet) mixed throughly and then add in chicken pieces (make sure they have already cooled down in temperature)
              - add salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste

              for variety, u can add in salad greens, tomatoes, potatoes (i find them a bit too heavy for me)

              ETA: mango, u can vary this with tuna as well (use tuna in springwater or brine) works as well
              Can i use yogurt instead of mayo? will it taste nice?

                hey! i love pasta and i'm not a sandwich/bread person. as you may know school is starting soon. i'm still in secondary school and i want to bring my own lunch to school next year. i love this pasta suggestion. only bad point is my school does not provide microwave oven for us students (very stingy, but singapore students also don't have the habit of bringing lunch to school right?) so what i'm thinking is do you have other easier suggestions that can be easily prepared (don't need much time) in the early morning hours (like 6am?) and how to store it so it can remain quiet warm until my recess time(9.30am)? sorry i asked so many questions but i really don't wanna pack sandwiches

                              You have to get the band from daiso. because their bands and lunch boxes are sold separately. I have bands for all my lunch boxes unless it's those with clip kind.
