Ben's First Experience with Banana Leaf Rice

~ Posted on Sunday, December 5, 2010 at 8:32 AM ~

Hubby's aunt from Sydney came back for a week holiday and few days ago, we went out with her to have brunch at the banana leaf rice restaurant near our house. Ben had his oatmeal breakfast already, so was pretty much just sitting there watching us eat (of course, he entertained himself by oogling at some stray cats around the restaurant).

Some of the Indian waiters can't resist and went ahead to play with Ben. One of them even gave Ben a smaller size of banana leave for him to use with. And when Ben realised he's suddenly treated like an adult (cos the rest of us were eating our rice on the banana leaves), we went along and placed some smaller chunks of food  (like fish, cucumber and the lentil crackers) and rice for Ben to nibble with.

Ben: "You sure I could eat on this leaf?!!"

Ben flashing more cutesy looks to the waiters nearby, probably trying to get more goodies? Hehehehe...

Ben: "Yumyumyum... gobble gobble gobble..."

It was a nice and filling meal and we enjoyed the brunch outing as well. I'm just so proud that Ben's so well behaved with his first experience with banana leaf rice!
