Half Hello Kitty Kyaraben, Half Traditional Bento


Here is today’s bento. It was meant be Hello Kitty but she looks more like a mouse 😦

The bottom layer is Miss Kitty with a lovely cloudy blue sky made of rice, egg whites and ham.

The top layer is more traditional and is filled with two-tone tamagoyaki, mixed oriental vegetables and instant cucumber and lettuce pickle 🙂

Hope you enjoy!

It’s a very cute Hello Kitty egg mould! It cost around £1.80 with free shipping from a seller in Hong Kong on eBay.

It actually arrived 4 days early and I can’t wait to try it out!!
