Marinate chicken cubes with finely chopped lemongrass, light soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar, salt and corn flour for 1hour or more..Thread the marinated chicken meat and canned pineapple cubes through a stalk of  lemongrass (lightly crushed the white part) . Pan fry or bake in the oven till cooked..

During my travel to Taiwan last yr, I tried several of their Bento Rice set. I liked them. When I don't cook, I will bring back Bento Rice for dinner from my Ma house. Good in the sense, I don't over eat cos' I used a small container, Haha! Yr children are lucky-sure appreciate.

Those boxes are great. My kids would LOVE it if I presented their lunches in such an appealing way each day!
