Simple Entertaining-Bridal Shower

This year is probably the marriage boom year....I have a few friends who had their weddings and a few more coming up. Bridal showers have become more common now, and it's a nice break for the bride to be from the hectic schedule.

Traditionally, the bridesmaid organizes it. But, there's no hard and fast rule.
There are many themes that can be used, the kitchen theme is quite popular.
However, it would be nice to personalised the bridal shower according to the bride to be needs.

So, let the fun begin!!

Simple Entertaining-Office Bento party!

My colleagues always eat out and then complain that they are getting tired of the food selection out there. So, I thought: "Wouldn't it be good and healthier if they brought their own lunch box/ or bentos. " And what better way to encourage everybody to bring their own boxes by having an introduction party- an office bento party!!

Encourage everybody to cook up something in less than 15 mins the night before, and put it in their lunch boxes.
During lunch time, everybody can show off their lunch boxes, and maybe everybody gets to do a bit of tasting.
Automatically, all the bentos will become the topic for conversation.
The organizer however has to provide drinks for this occasion.
