Walruses Bento
It’s time for charaben! :D. I’m a huge fan of Maki Ogawa aka Luckysundae of Cuteobento. I have to tell you that I know bento for the first time when I accidentally landed over her blog some years ago. I was so amazed by her bento creations and couldn’t help myself to try making bento soon. Maki is a really nice and sweet friend; although she’s now a very well-known charaben artist, she’s so humble and very supportive to all bento lovers. I remember when she gave her first comment to my bento creation on my flickr, I couldn’t sleep all night (well, that’s merely a comment, but the insight is that when it comes from one that you admire, it can make you feel so ecstatic, rite? :D).

I love Maki’s bentoing style, and many of my bentos (haven’t been posted yet, still in my folder :D) are influenced by her style :D. For today’s post – Walruses Bento, it was inspired by one of Maki’s charabens. I first saw it on Maki’s blog and later I saw it appeared on Megan’s blog inspired from Yum-Yum Bento Box by Maki and another world’s talented bentoist, Pikko :D. Couldn’t help myself to make this Walruses Bento since it’s very cute :D.

Walruses Bento

The walruses made of rice balls mixed with Kecap Manis (Indonesian sweet soya sauce) to create brownish color, tusks from cheese, brown snouts from buna shimeji caps, and black sesame seeds for the whisker holes. Fresh friends: grapes and Balinese grapes. Yummy friends: Boiled imitated crab stick and beef sausage, tamagoyaki, mixed curry (boneless chicken, potato, wood ear fungus, and buna shimeji), and a single pretty carrot flower.

Happy Thursday, buddies! :D
