OMG.  Have you ever thought about how cute Bento boxes are?  I can’t help but love those things!  Haha,,, I mean, they’re a great way to brighten up a person’s lunch!  Come on, no one can turn a smile away from a Bento box, especially when it’s made so adorably.  And you can just tell that they are made with love!  Lol…  Like, if you ever go to East Asia, Bentos (便當) are extremely popular.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about (or if you do, for that matter), well, Bento boxes are a huge aspect of Asian culture because they have all the nutrients we need for lunch in them, *cough cough* by that, I mean it has a huge amount of rice in it 😉 .   It keeps us full and it’s uber tasty!  Yea, well, while we’re at it, we like to make it all cute and fancy… And originally it was made by parents for their children because the adults wanted the kids to have a good lunch so that they would do better in school (good logic, no?).  But nowadays, the tradition has passed onto making it for someone you love in general!  For example, sometimes a girl will make it for her boyfriend or someone she likes… or, a girl may make it for a good friend she is close with.

The point is that Bentos have become a symbol of love (familial or … that other kind of love).  It’s a way for people to express their love and a way to brighten up another person’s lunch.  People always say that food is the best medicine when you feel down… Bentos are the answer- kawaii and delicious… Who can deny such a box? 😀


P.S.- I’m hungry for Bento boxes lol… I think I’ll start making some for myself to bring to school for lunch… Nom Nom Nom…
