Bentolicious #083
Today's snack bento was quick to prepare. I woke up late because I forgot to set up the alarm clock last night. I thought I turned it on already but ... oh well! I was racing with the time and managed to make pita bread sandwiches filled with chicken patties, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. Put some strawberries and grapes, a quarter of sweet orange inside the sandwich box and decorated it with cheese boy on the top of pita bread sandwiches. I used wax paper inside the sandwich box to keep the foods clean. I love this sandwich box because it can be folded, so it is easy to use and store. I have some folded sandwich boxes with cute characters on the lid that I got them a couple months ago. I was in hurry to take the picture and forgot to take the picture on the lid of this box. But it was Lightning McQueen from Disney-Cars movie.

I want to thank everyone who already took time to vote for my bento in the Spring Bento Contest 2010. It was fun to enjoy this event and I hope many bento friends will join this event next year. My bento made it to the 2nd place. I'm so happy for so much support from many friends in Indonesia and from overseas. Without all of you, the Spring Fairy wouldn't make it to the TOP 10. All 156 entries are great works and beautiful! And I felt honored to be included along with all talented bento makers around the world :)


even though you are in a rush, you still managed to make such a nice bento. congrats on reaching 2nd place, it's an achievement ^_^

Congrate in the Spring Bento Contest Lia, once again to prove that your bentos were great..^^

Hi Lia! Happy to see you get to use the cool sandwich box. Esp with bento addicts, it's important to fold down to save space, eh? LOVE the pita idea, so fresh and delicious-looking! Congratulations in the contest, I am not surprised you finished so well, your talents are so exquisite!
