How amazing are these Bento Box creations by Ming of bentomonsters.com? They're so fun to look at. She writes:
I started packing charabens (decorative bentos) when my first-born entered elementary school. He missed me terribly then and had problems adjusting to the longer hours at primary school. I started packing him charabens, along with lunch notes, hoping to cheer him up and let him have something to look forward to at recess. Overtime, making cute food for my boys have become a hobby for me, which I indulge in whenever I'm free.
