Little Kitten Bento + Tutorial


Hey everyone! For people who have previously visited my blog regularly, please don't get shocked ;)! I am sure you have noticed that I recently changed the look of my blog ;). I just wanted a change, because I simply couldn't see that same, old blog skin anymore, and I also wanted to personalise my blog a bit more. Previously I used a free blogskin available online somewhere, but this time, everything is designed by yours truly ;). So, please don't be too harsh on me, I know that there are lots of rooms for improvement, especially because I don't have any knowledge in coding. I was thinking to use a different platform other than blogger, because it's going to give me more freedom in designing my blog. But then again, I've been using blogger for (wow!) a bit more than 4 years now, so I decided to stay here and be loyal to blogger ;). 

I will nevertheless add a new section to my blog, such as a gallery to improve audience experience - I am aware that my blog is not the easiest to navigate. If you think that there are other cool things I should add to my blog, please do let me know :). 

Anyway, back to the bento above - I actually made it ages ago, but haven't posted about it until today. It's pretty simple to make and you don't need god-mighty skills to make it as long as you own some cookie cutters and a nori punch. The kitties are made from fried spam, cheese, carrot and nori seaweed. The sides are a portion of boiled corn kernels, edamame beans and pan-fried scotch egg.


I will make a horse-themed bento within the next few days since it's my dad's year as well :). My dad is currently here, so it's going to be dedicated to him :). Stay tuned!

    1. Thanks zouzou lechat :)! Spam is canned meat: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_%28food%29

      It's pretty unhealthy, but you can always use a healthier alternative such as firm tofu or other things with similar texture :).

  8. I like how the overall design hasn't changed that much, yet the site looks completely different. The navigation definitely improved, well done. :) And I'm a fan of the retro/girly coloured social media buttons...

    Also, that's one monster of a scotch egg. XD Maybe because the box is small.

    1. Thanks, Tze. I love retro and girly design too. I am still playing around with the layout of my blog. Unfortunately I have no coding knowledge which hinders me from designing my blog as I really wish it to be. But I suppose one day it's going to be easier to design your own blog even though you know nothing about HTML/CSS. Just look at wix, squarespace, etc and the likes, super cool!

    2. Gah! I hate coding too. I stopped learning after HTML4 and now it seems like everyone knows how to write code. Google a simple term as "Change website background" (ok, at least I know how to do that) and the search results always lead to forums where people throw bucketfuls of code at you. D:

      Wix? Squarespace...? *researches* ...Huh! One of these might come in handy if I start something new...thanks!
