Cooking Gallery’s contest is ending tomorrow. but as I won’t have time tomorrow I had to make a couple of bentos today (plus last week I was back home home so couldn’t make any either)!
For those who are interested, here are the photos… I will decide which one to use for the contest tomorrow… Gonna sleep now. =_=
PS: I didn’t make all of them today. The smaller photos are photos taken with my mobile phone of bentos I made in the past.

Pwetty! I especially love the Shinzi Katoh stuff o__O And your food is good-looking too ;)
I just tsaw the list of entries here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/bento_contest/pool/
Never gonna win, but it was really fun and motivating to do. :3
And yes, I must raid the Shinzi Katoh website, thanks for reminding me!
Well, now I’m hungry *_*
The 3rd one down, particularly, looks really good… they all look pretty amazing, though :D
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Muahahahahaha >:D
D: This was your plan all along, wasn’t it?
Oh wow.. aside from how delicious all the food looks, I love the box in the first photo with the owl & moon design on the lid :3
Thanks! It was my very first bento box, took a few hours to decide which one to pick but I’m still very happy with it. ^___^
