bento_box: KFC Christmas (Default)

I need help! I’m looking for a bento like the one below for a slightly better price (on JList it’s $28 bucks, which is totally a great price but I’m broke and stressing this as a need even though it’s not a need, lol),  or something similar?

Carved Wooden Lacquered  2 Tier Bento Box & Elastic Band ~ Ume / Japanese Plum

What I really want is something with that gorgeous waffle, almost snakeskin-like pattern that has the distinctive red of lacquered wood. I so need a wishlist, lol!

If you’ve followed Shibuya 109 for any length of time, you’ll probably notice that something is missing from my posts. Since long before Shibuya became devoted to what I love about Japan and Japanese culture, what I like to call my, “Song about being happy”, I’ve been posting my bento here whenever I get a moment to take bento photos. If you also follow my bento blog, you’ll likely notice that I’ve made a few posts there without publishing them here like I usually do.

So what gives? Why am I no longer cross posting my bento?

I decided that I wanted to focus more on my thoughts on and my passion for Japanese culture, places, etc. and, while bento is one of Japans most famous cultural exports to the United States, it didn’t make any sense to have a blog dedicated to bento then cross post all of the photos to Shibuya.

So, instead of worrying about all that I’ve decided to allow my bento to stay on my bento site, and have added a widget to the sidebar so you can see the latest two bento photos at a glance.

Hope that clears it up! :)

I love, love, love this video! I do love a good octo-dog — P.S. For those who live in the states and can’t get ‘real’ Japanese sausages, try little smokies. They don’t taste the same, but they’re a great size for bento and work well with rice!

Not a fancy bento today, more like a quickie! Some mackerel rice, peas and carrots, mini hamburgers and an omelet.

The first bento in quite awhile that I’ve had the presence of mind to take pics of. Top tier: Rice layered with tuna salad and topped with nori/egg furikake, a nori strip and a bologna bear face. Bottom tier: Stir fried green beans in olive oil, garlic and spring onions. Octodogs and crab dogs with a little blue fox cup of BBQ sauce.

About two weeks ago I splurged on eBay and bought some Easter-style Hello Kitty furikake packets, they just arrived today! They contain four of each Tarako, Katsuo, Egg, Salmon, Okaka and Veg – can’t wait to try them out. Isn’t the package cute? When I open it i’ll be sure to include images of the individual packs! :)

My very first use of my only Hello Kitty bento which includes the adorable Kitty-chan in strawberry-milk pink and sparkles. The bento came with a matching triangle onigiri press.

Green peas, baby carrots (raw), octodogs (little smokies), onigiri and a couple of Hershey’s dark chocolate kisses!

Getting back into the daily bento habit has been a real scream! Simple bento for lack of time that consists of some rice with homemade furikake, mashed carrots with honey and pepper, sweet and sour pork, a few grape tomatoes and octo dogs!
