Happily smiling is the first thing that I can do to start this happy post :D. Yeaaayyyy!!!! They finally arrived! Lovely bento lunch boxes with a matching bento bag and a chopstick case (also with the chopsticks :D). Do you still remeber my Blooming Pink Flowers Bento for this bento contest by Cooking Gallery? Yes, I won one of the prize sets :D. The prize set that I won is just LOVELY ^^. My boardinghouse mate gave me the package at night when I just got back from working. I was (and is still) so happy that I even hugged the package when I was sleeping at that night LOL :D. You can laugh at me but at that time I just couldn't believe that I was holding a package from France hehehehe; I was totally thrilled hahah. Thank you so much Casa Bento, CG Cooking Gallery, Bentolicious, and Nami of Just One Cook Book :D. When I see them I sometimes still can't believe that they are mine ^^.
I called my mom right after I got the package. And here's a funny conversation that my Mom and I had :D
Me: Mom, the bento prize has finally arrived!
Mom: Really? The one you said from Germany?
Me: Yes, the contest is conducted by my friend in Germany. But, the prize is shipped from France.
Mom: France? How cool it is. How is the prize?
Me: Totally adorable! All of the items are matching with each other. Every item comes with flowery pattern and the pattern is so Japanese. Really really beautiful!
Mom: Bring them all home! Give them all to me!
Me: What? Nooooo!!!!! You can take another box of mine but not this one.
Mom: Hey, listen to me, I have to save them. Bring them all home and I'll put them in our display cupboard, only to be seen. They are from France, it means we have to treasure them. You are not supposed to use them. You get it?
Me: *LOL :D :D :D
Of course, I won't bring them home soon :D. I actually managed not to make any bentos this month (and next month) as I go to work early that I have no time for bentoing. Since there will be a farewell party in February 20th, I think I'll use the bigger bento box to make a farewell bento and will enjoy it with my friends :D.
CG, you don't need to worry anymore :D. All of them came in good condition. And for Casa Bento, merci beaucoup for sending them safe and sound. I have no doubt that you packaged them with a lot of carefulness and love ^^.
