During the last Wesak Day holiday, I managed to meet up with a bunch of good old friends. Believe it or not, some of them I have never meet for almost 10 years though we still keep in touch electronically. Time really flies!
Anyway, it was so great to find out that everyone still look as young as ten years back, and still as cheerful as ten years back. And a special thanks to our host ML for the wonderful gathering, and the wonderful food she had prepared specially for the gathering.
It was really a fruitful get together. Besides the endless chat, we also had a guided meditation session by Yasavati who came back to Malaysia for a break (and she was the main force for this get together). We even managed to have a quick catch up with MM through â€œone-wayâ€ webcam (as in only she can see us but not the other way round). Now you see why I said this is a fruitful get together.
Since we already had our host preparing a full course meal for all, I decided to make some dessert boxes for my dear friends. The idea of packing the desserts in individual boxes was to make sure that just in case we are too full with the meal prepared by ML, then everyone can carry home the desserts.
In the box: a heart shape pudding, caramel syrup, pitted prunes and a cherry tomato ladybug.
I put the caramel syrup container into a nice paper cupcake cups and top it with a small spoon with ribbon so that the disposable container has a nicer appearance. I close the pudding cup with the lid before closing the dessert box.
The thing I love about the heart shape pudding cup is if you fix the lid underneath the cup and it becomes the stand for the cup and ever ready to be served to your guests. I made a total of ten puddings, but my boys taken two before I can even pack them into the box!
As expected, we were all so stuffed with the super delicious food prepared by ML, and everyone brought the dessert box home with them.
I shall try to practice the meditation thought by Yasavati. Till she comes back and visit us the next time, see how far I can go with that.
Just to share the tools and ingredients I used to make this dessert bento since quite a number of friends and readers are asking me about it.
Basically all I need was these – disposable bento box, pudding cup, leaf baran, disposable small sauce container, disposable spoon, paper cupcake cup (which can fit the disposable sauce container), and some nice ribbon. Oh yeah, of course the ingredients for the pudding too.
