So what do you think of this Red Bird? Remember to be back for the Yellow Bird, White Bird & the King Pig!!


An idea struck me when it was my son’s lunch box day on Fridays. Jon loves Onigiri, so I decided to make him an Angry Birds Lunch Box! Angry Birds Bento Box for a 16-yr-old boy? Never mind, his mum is a big kid too! Guess what? It was my hubby who was more impressed & “snatched” the lunch box from Jon! Yes, Ken brought these Angry Birds to his office instead!! Angry Birds, the popular & best-selling mobile game, has taken the world by storm. The game is about these birds who’re angry because their eggs were stolen by a bunch of green pigs. Since they can’t fly, they’ve to use a giant slingshot to catapult themselves to destroy those pigs that are well protected inside their fortress. So are you ready for some action now?? Let's GAME!
