Today (11/11) is apparently International Pocky day!

Yay, Pocky!

Well, I’ve been meaning to do this blog for the past 3 months, but then Alteil (my day job) has gotten in the way,,, Darn that game for being so much fun! 😛

Anyway, better late than never, so I’ll start blogging today.

I’ve been into making bento (“lunch box” in Japanese) recently, and I’m actually having a lot of fun with it.
And here is my first attempt to make “something” with food.

Bento #1: Totoro (from My Neighbor Totoro)
Created and eaten on: 9/11/2008

Not my neighbor...

Not my neighbor...

Yes, it’s an overweight Totoro, and looks like he’s about to cry.
I made this exactly two months ago, and I’ve gotten better now. (I think)
I’m so embarrassed by this bento that I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to post it.
But whenever I look at it, it always makes me realize that “if you suck at something, keep doing it. You’ll get better at it eventually!”

But yeah, he is definitely not my neighbor…

body – rice (brown part is rice mixed with bonito flakes and soy sauce)
eye – seaweed on fishcake

other food:
– left over noodle, broccoli, egg, fish cake sausage, baby corn

For more pictures of my bento, visit “Bento!” set and “Bento details!” set on my flickr page.

I just wanted to let you know that I found your blog today and read all of your posts! I tried making egg sheet sunflowers just now, and they came out really well! Thanks a lot for posting; you’ve inspired me.
