Bento and Antique Shopping

Posted October 13th, 2010 in Perth WA 2 Comments »

Last week I packed a o-bento and headed to a park with my husband.


We didn’t really make destination, but ended up going to Lake Mongar area.  It was such a beautiful day, and we sat down on the grass and enjoyed the view of the lake and many birds.

I didn’t have any ingredient for bento at home, so I just made onigiri (rice balls), dashimaki (omelet), horenso-ohitashi (seasoned spinach), naruto (fish cake), and hijiki-no-nimono (seasoned hijiki seaweed).  If I had more time, I wanted to make some meat dish for my husband (karaage or meatballs) and other food.   🙁

After lunch, we went to Mt Lawley area to shop at antique shops we saw from the car the other day.  There’re few antique shops on Beaufort street.

There’re some interesting things at the shops, but some of them are quite pricy.  But, at one shop, we found some antique gadget at reasonable prices.  They are plates, kitchenware, and some ornaments.  I bought one little vase at $2.00 (it was made in Japan!), and my husband bought an antique Kodak camera.

It was pretty dusty when we bought it, but he cleaned it up and polished the leather area.  This camera was made in 1960s (?) and no longer works, but it looks good as an ornament.

    Wow! That Bento looks so delicious! 😀

    Where did you get the Naruto from? I’ve been trying to find it for a while now.

    Hi Bishonencam,

    I’ve seen naruto anywhere, even at Chinese grocery shops 🙂

    Nippon Food sells them too, but the price was very expensive. (around $6) I bought the naruto at a Chinese grocery shop at $2.00. I think it was Chan Brother in Myaree.
