Happy Bunny Bento & Creative Blogger Award

The Bunny Says Hi!
I did make a bunny-themed bento for CNY but I've managed to post it later since I found this Happy Bunny Bento in my jadul (old) bento folder :D. This bunny bento was made when I was still an undergraduate student (almost 2 years ago). I made two charabens at that time and brought them to campus to be enjoyed together with friends (yup, they were sooo happy with the charabens ^^). I tell you a secret: It's so easy to differentiate between my old and recent bentos - how? My old bentos have no cute and fancy food picks, LOL! (and I tended to do carving :D). I made the little oranges from boiled carrot decorated with boiled green bean and tooth pick to replace the use of leaf food pick that I didn't posses at that time hehehe ^^. And what's the character of the other bento in a green box? Was it bunny too? You'll see later ;D.

The bunny was made of steamed firm tofu and tomato. To make the view, I used two slices of fried chicken ball as the stones, boiled broccoli as trees, white steamed rice as the sky, a combination of white rice and black sticky rice for the ground, and those little seeds were basil seeds :D. The side dishes were rolled egg sheet with boiled green bean and carrot (I wished I knew how to make good egg sheet at that time :D), bunny-shaped fried tempeh (Indonesian fermented soy bean cake), carrot oranges, and boiled sweet corn. The fruits were Balinese grapes and peeled orange.

Oya, I have a happy news too. I got a Creative Blogger Award from my sweet friend and my cooking guru, Mbak Deethong of Mlebu Pawon. Thanks a lot kamsiong for the awardonge Guruong ;D. I'm supposed to give this award to five creative bloggers according to me, but let me break the rule for this time hehehehe ^^. I give this award to my creative friends in facebook who are very creative in making bento. I hope this award make them more motivated and supported to make more super creative bento and spread the love for bento :D. And those six (yes six) lucky friends are..
