Life is a like Bento Box

Well, Mr Forest, life is not a box of chocolates but a box of bento.

Basically, it has a mixture of tastes and colours. You know what you are going to get. You expect the taste to be what you have chosen. But yet again, everytime when you have a mouthful of rice, a mouthful of vegetables, a mouthful of meat and a mouthful of everything, you get a different taste. Be it the same bento set, the same ingredients, it will still taste different. The composition of different ingredients gives rise to a different flavour with each bite. Sometimes with more than ingredients than expected, sometime with less. Sometimes with freebies. Sometimes, you can only hope for one. Enjoy your every bite and treat it as more than just a bento set.

This is life. Everyday is different. Though you know what you are going to do. Everyday is still different. The path you take, the transportation you use, the place you visit might be still the same. But take a step back and observe, it is actually so different and intriguing. You will understand what I mean.

Anyway, enough of this philosophical stuff, my main purpose is to share with you the wonderful bento that the Tan Tans had for lunch today! (see pix below)

Great tasting bento with ingredients so fresh... wahahaha.. and the salmon here is so fresh and nice. (you know those top grade ones that are sold in Cold Storage or Jason's? That can barely pass off as expired here in Owase)

(Quite cool considering that they actually got a website here and I tell you, the place was packed)
