I always love to make bento and yes at several times I dreamed to write a bento book; but I only kept it as a dream just like a dream when we are sleeping, since I had no idea how to make it come true and believed that I was not gonna make it - it's too good to be true :D. I had to convince myself that the dream was no longer a dream when a friend of mine contacted and asked me to write a bento book. At first I thought it was a joke, but it wasn’t! Oh yes, I needed to pinch myself. Awww, it hurt meant it was real and I wasn’t dreaming.
Alhamdulillah thank you Allah for this great opportunity. My family, friends, blogging and bento friends, for always loving and supporting me. Mamam K to make my dream come true and Mommy MJ for very very super cute book design, you both are my wonder women *hugs. I dedicate this book for all of you and bento lovers :D. I feel totally blessed to have the experience to write a bento book where I styled and took the pictures by myself. Yes, in my boarding house! I spent my weekends to make bentos and write the book. It never crossed in my mind that I would be able to produce a book from my boarding house (with only that single skillet, mini pan, and wooden spatula LOL :D).
Bonita Bento Book (BBB) is published in Semarang, September 2012, by Kitty Bento. It’s actually like a self-publishing book. My book is sold online by bento online shops; it’s not like the ones you usually find in book stores :D. Why are only online shops? At first, it’s true that we addressed this book only to bento lover community in our country :). However, it comes with the serial number ISSN 2302-2116 and another set of number below the bar code, I don’t know what to call it ha ha, 9772302211613.
