Onigiri bento continues. I'm big on onigiri these days, especially umeboshi one. Speaking of onigiri, I mentioned the difference between onigiri and omusubi on the last post. You can't remove *O* from *ONIGIRI* because *NIGIRI* is short for *nigiri-zushi* (hand-shaped sushi). I think Japanese is a confusing language. But I guess that's how most of human languages are. What else I made this morning are shrimp tamagoyaki and sweet salty chicken sticks, that's all. hehe
Today's shot!! I made chili oil using the red chili peppers from my garden. I'm going to use it for gyoza. Okay now I decided to make gyoza this evening so that we'll warm up because it's windy and cold outside today. It should have snowed somewhere else last night. Well, which am I going to make... Regular gyoza or boiled one??
Following the Tell me about yourself award, I'm finally sharing *7 things about myself*.
My favorite places --- The public library and the public park beside it. And fancy goods stores. I can hangout in these places for ages.
My favorite food --- Comfort food and simple homemade sweets. And all kinds of noodles.
My favorite homemade stuff --- Bento, bread, yogurt, pickled vegetable, soap, beaded accessories.
My dream --- Study abroad with my little buddy one day. Getting a Harley motorbike.
Things I love --- Coming up with a new recipe, blogging, yummy food, cook books, food photography, kawaii kitchen tools, travel, the Internet.
Movies I want to see at a theater now. --- Kung Fu Panda 2 and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Lastly, about the blog title and my online name.
At first I thought this blog would be a soapmaking blog because it was one of my hobbies. However, contrary to my expectation, this eneded up being a bentomaking blog lol! But I meant to write about my interests and all that jazz. I likened entertainment (such as music, books, films and so on) and spiritual things to *soul*, meal to *soup*, daily necessities to *soap*. All of them are absolute essentials for my life.
My online name --- *babykins* is from Richard Scarry's books. I love the world of his books and the adorable and naughty little cat boy, *Babykins* who is one of his characters.
These are all I came up with so far. I hope I haven't written too much haha!
