Any of you still keep your childhood toy? Well… I do, below … please meet Leo the Lion.
Technically Leo belong to my elder brother, my Dad bought Leo for him in one of his Europe trip many many many years ago. We (the family) are quite surprised that somehow Leo is still with the family after all this years, considering when we move from hometown to Jakarta , we had been screening and donating many things to others.
It turn out after 2 cities and 3 houses, Leo is still with us (Hmm… not sure whether it was mum who pack him out of sentimental reason or Leo himself sneak into the box 🙂
Anyway despite of his age (can any of you guess how old is he looking at his appearance and design?) , Leo still in good shape and adorable and I can’t help but to adopt him as mine as my brother had been way too old and too manly to keep stuffed toy at his place 😀
- Today Bento is created using Leo as reference, the base of his face is fried rice enhance with egg sheet as his mane and cheek, the rest of the ingredients are smoked beef for ears, nori and cheese and carrot for other facial expression. For the side dish I have fried shrimps, boiled okra, and some lap cheong (chinese pork sausage)
Rw00rrrrw…..well…nope…Leo actually make a rather cute sound when you squeeze him at his tail 🙂
