The cool company during the YumBox Event by Bright Brands and Bento by Kat
I have the privilege to be invited by Cheryl of Bright Brands to attend their first Private Workshop with Bento by Kat. I have never done anything artsy with food and for me doing bento is really a fun way of food presentation. Bento is a way of art and crafts but using food and the tools you use in the kitchen. It got me really excited 'coz a hands-on event like this is something new for me. Plus i got to meet new and old faces, and it's always something I look forward to in events.

Some things to put in mind before doing a Bento. I seriously think that its only for the artsy, 'coz patience doing the details is very important.
The set-up in Rustan's is super! We get a whole table to ourselves and Kat really goes around to make sure every one gets the job correctly.

The Basics of Making the Alpaca
Kinda looks easy-peasy, but it's not! well, for a first-timer like me, I can say that this could take up so much time compared to doing the usual baon for your kids.
You basically need to mold rice into the shape of the Alpaca using the Cling wrap.
