Lunch Notes

When I attended Mandarin classes (stayed back after school) 3 days a week during the school year this year, mummy would pack lunch for me. One day, during our trip to Australia, this Elmo zipper bag attracted her. She found these zipper bags very useful (cute first, useful second hehe), so she bought a box for me.

Cute Elmo sandwich bags with free stickers

It all started with this... a personalized lunch pack for me! (Egg and organic lettuce burger with carrot sticks and fruit juice)

And then this... some written words here and there for me to read before I eat (Egg and organic lettuce sandwich *again* with banana and strawberries)

Soon, I got very interested in these little "lunch notes" and kept asking mummy for more..."mummy, can you write a surprise message for me tomorrow?" I called it the "surprise message" but mummy didn't do it very often for me... only when she had some extra time to spare in the mornings...

Mummy kept the Elmo bags (too precious to use them all hehe) and used these plain ones instead 

Since I am a slow eater, mummy had to constantly remind me to EAT FASTER! (Egg, blanched organic broccoli and baked sweet potato wedges with grapes)

The simplest and most fuss-free "cincai" meal (2 thick slices of Danish loaf, milk and grapes)

Another simple meal (croissant, hard boiled quail's eggs, carrot sticks and grapes)

Steamed multi-grain bun, granola bar, egg, grapes and blueberries

Wheatgerm bread "sushi" with egg and carrot, cucumber sticks and prunes

The above are just some of the lunch notes that mummy did for me. Since the school holidays started 2 weeks ago, I kind of missed my pre-packed lunch with the attached "surprise messages" so I asked mummy to make one for me today. While we made the pancakes together, I tried not to peek when she packed the other stuff and wrote the note for me. When lunch was served, I pretended to be surprised hehe. I just love to play pretend!

The homemade pancakes that I helped mummy to make... together with boiled quail's eggs and grapes *happy*

  5. I got some cute lunch bags too, but I never use them. Now, mummy Chloe has taught me a good way to utilize them. Those lovely notes sure make Chloe's days.

  6. Such cute and healthy lunch packs. I laughed at the "eat faster" comments which kept reappearing :)

    ps: Will the bread sushi stay in place in the bags?

  15. This is a cute idea. I should start packing ashley's snacks in plastic bags and write notes too. i usually just slip in a lil note in her lunch box :P

  16. Irene: Err, daddy packs his own breakfast so no such "love notes" for him hehe. Thanks for the idea tho :p Will give him a surprise one day :)

    Adrine: All these packed food are placed inside a lunch box. The sushi bread should stay in place if she doesn't shake the lunch box too vigorously :)
