Here is a photo of Cage's 4 year old son, Kal-el leaving Disneyland back in March. Kal-el seems to take after more of his mom's Korean features. What do you think?

Lunch A looks like potato, kimchee, bean sprout soup, and kimchi chigae over rice.
Lunch B looks like seasoned squid, meat and potato curry, kimchee, and soybean paste soup with rice.
Lunch C looks like sliced radish with egg, mandoo (dumpling), kimchee, Deukboki (rice cake dish), rice and fish cake udon soup.
Pictured above are typical school lunches given to Korean school aged children. As you can see, all of the lunch trays include rice, soup, kimchee, and a Korean main dish of some sort. The kids eat their lunches with metal chopsticks, which is unlike American children who primarily eat finger foods (sandwich, chicken nuggets, pizza) for lunch.

I think I have bento fever as I can't stop looking at all the creative lunchbox ideas from Japan and Korea! Just learned that you can buy these molds to shape your cucumber (while they are growing) into hearts or stars! If you have a cucumber garden and want to try this, you can purchase them through Japantrendshop.com. Or if you live in Japan, you can purchase heart and star shaped cucumbers at the market. How cute these would look in your dosirak/bento!

Giveaway time! To celebrate Children's Day in Korea on May 5th, we decided to do a dosirak giveway contest. Children's Day is a big deal in Korea as children get taken out to a day of fun and get lavished with gifts! Making a special dosirak can be part of the fun!
To enter the contest, just post on the Little Seouls Fan Page wall a description of your child's favorite meal. If you can share the recipe and... a photo of the actual meal even better! Thought this would be a fun way for everyone to get new menu ideas! Winner to be selected next Friday, April 23rd so plenty of time to enter. Prize will be a Pororo Dosirak either in blue or pink (you choose).
