Check out this S'pore mum's bento meals! Mmm, they're works of art

Most of the time, people who pack lunches to school don't care about the way they are presented. But Ms Lee Li Ming, 38, puts her heart and soul into the meals she makes for her two sons. Instead of just putting together rice, veggies and meat, Ms Lee turns them into cartoon works of art. With clever use of food colouring, cookie cutters and lots of imagination, a simple dish of rice, meatballs, broccoli and fruits transforms into Mario, the heroic Italian plumber from the eponymous video game. And now, her homemade charaben (Japanese for character bento), is world-famous, having been featured on the websites of foreign newspapers such as the UK's Daily Mail and Daily Express, and the New York Post and ABC News in the US. Read the full report in our print edition on Sept 26. Subscribe to The New Paper, now available in print and digital, at http://bit.ly/tnpeshop .
