I had a potluck party recently, another gathering with my childhood friends. I'm always looking forward to meeting this group of friends as we've shared many wonderful childhood memories together. Party food need not be boring, it's not just kids that will appreciate fun food. You too, can create appetizing and colourful food that will entice your guests.

To add some glitz to my Inari Sushi ( 稲荷寿司 / いなり寿司 ) Bento tray, I also had Caviar added to my appetizers. Look at how the eyes of Rilakkuma sparkle with joy! Well, a few good places in Singapore to order the black gems would be Delicia, Culina, or the Gourmet Shop.

To inject some varieties, I prepared two types of appetizers; one using apples and crabsticks, and the other with prawns and mangoes to cater to the different palates. Don't you think the party tray is rather aesthetically appealing to the eyes? Does this party tray stimulate your appetite?

  8. Shirley, to answer your questions: 1) I didn't know about Rilakkuma, but I can see why they're so popular -- extremely cute :) -- and your caviar "eyes" DO make them sparkle! 2) Aesthetically appealing? Appetite stimulating? (Okay, that was two questions in one.) Yes & yes. What a fun treat for your childhood pals! I'm also loving your appetizer fillings and the thought (and flavor!) you put into your parties.
