Hi frens! I am back!

Super sorry that I was missing in action.

Had a leg injury that I need to take care of. Weekly 3 times physiotherapy. Overwhelmed with work and my recovery.

Will try my best to make more bentos :)

Other than Japanese food, I do love Korean food as well.

1 of my favorite will be Japchea, Stir Fried Glass Noodle.

I youtube for the recipe and  last week I made some, it turn out great!

So, I am happy to share with you the recipe~ wuhuuu


This weekend, hubby was craving for some Japchea.

Haha, they said the way to a men’s heart is through his stomach tehhheee

The noddle before cook was grey-ish color. So I immediately wanted to make a Totoro food art.
