Bentolicious #134
I joined the October Pink by making a pink bento theme. Some of my bento friends like Chantale, Debra, Susan Yuen, Emily have posted their pink bento on their blog too. I believe many more will join to post their pink bento theme soon. One of my Aunties suffered from breast cancer and lost the battle a few years ago. I still remembered how devastated my uncle and my cousins were. Hope the Pink Ribbon will alert us about breast cancer awareness and to give support to anyone who has been affected by breast cancer.
I made pink bear from rice, kamaboko, crab stick, and nori. The pink ribbon was made of colored egg sheet. Inside the other box : tamagoyaki, grape tomatoes, flower shapes fish sausages, bean sprout & celery stir fry with ebi (dried shrimp), and chicken paprika stir fry.
