Ever since i started prepare Bento for my kids, every night i will ask my kids what they want to eat for Bento. The other day my son Lucas requested for Teriyaki salmon, but the little son Desmond said he has boring on my bento and he wanted to buy at the school's canteen..I was so upset when hearing this(understand that he is still small) ..Now i start to understand how my mother felt when we were complaint about the foods that she prepared for us last time..
Anyway this was not stopping me to prepare Bento for Lucas, and he was enjoyed so much of this Salmon rice ball..
A very quick and easy recipe, Thanks to Nami aka Just One Cookbook.. I have to simplify this recipe as i could not find some of the ingredients.

There were two requests sent to me, requested for authorisation to use my photos. I am glad that they asked my permission unlike the earlier "no manner person" who still my photos and posts.
1) My Turmeric cabbage photo-an educational project at Fairfield Methodist Primary School which they are featuring popular foods for 4 races on the pillars at their canteen.
2) My "Ngoh Hiang" photo- for packaging sticker design..In return, he was helping me to convert my Nasi Lemak icon into watermark ,so I can place my blog's icon on all my photos for copyright purposes. Thanks Victor!
