Bentolicious #055
This week will be dedicated for Valentine's and Chinese New Year theme. As the Valentines's Day and Chinese New Year will be in the same day this year on 14th February, 2010. I made this 'love' bento to start this busy week. And love in the box is for all my bento friends. Unfortunately we do not celebrate Valentine's Day anymore in the 'special day' sense. We celebrated it everyday in our 13 years of marriage :) just had the Wedding Anniversary last week. But thanks to my husband's job... he left me alone with a big flower bouquet, a card, a new Magic Mouse and two kids ... LOL :D He had to travel last week, something that we can't avoid. Inside the box : (1st box) rice with a lot of hearts at the top from carrots, cucumbers and egg. (2nd box) pork sausages wrapped with beetroot noodles, broccoli with heart shaped sprinkles from crab stick, corns, strawberry and veggie pastry.


Beautiful!!! :)
You should submit it to Wholesome lunchbox round-up. I will be posting it on 15th...

That bento is so lovely. I adore all the hearts and everything looks so tasty.
