Zodiac Bento: Tiger by Demi-Plum Zodiac Bento: Tiger by Demi-Plum
Occupying the 3rd position on the Chinese Zodiac, the Tiger symbolizes such character traits as bravery, competitiveness and unpredictability. Tigers love to be challenged and will accept any challenge if it means protecting a loved one or protecting their honor. They donít worry about the outcome because they know theyíll always land on their feet. Donít let their calm appearance fool you though; Tigers will pounce when they feel itís necessary.

The month of January is the month of the Tiger. This bento contains:

Top Layer:
2 Tiger Onigiri with Fried Shrimp Filling
Fried Shrimp

Bottom Layer:
Mini Skewered Salads
Star Shaped Egg
Colby Jack Cheese Squares
Salami
Daikon (Pickled Radish)
Grapes

Tiger Onigiri Recipe came from Yum-Yum Bento Box. Please Enjoy

Mm I'm so hungry now. But I'm sick and my throat hurts so badly to swallow anything.

And woot!! :w00t: I finally got a bento box last weekend at a con for 12 dollars! :iconfinallyplz: but I don't know what to put in it first. Plus I have no place to go like a job or school to make a lunch for. :(

Aww you poor thing! That's awful. The last time I was sick it was my throat that was the problem too. I hope you get better quickly!

Oh wonderful! That is so exciting! You don't have to make bento to take with you, you can make it to eat at home too. You just have to make it and enjoy it ^w^!

Thanks! It was worse yesterday. I can at least get some juice and water down at least today. Sucked watching my family eating pizza yesterday. T.T

Yeah I know. I thought of that, but I want to use it for some special event and have my little bento lunch. Maybe I'll make one for this friday. I'll be going to a few places that day. :D

I don't like pizza much so it wouldn't have bothered me much >w< but I'm sorry you had to watch that. It's good that you can get liquids in you. You have to keep those up to stay alive.

That's a good idea then! I know how you feel. When I got my first bento I felt that way too. I'm going to be getting a new one soon so I know I'll feel the same way. I want this one more for charaben reasons though.

Wow you keep getting bento boxes. Wish I could be that lucky. How many do you have now? :o

I just ordered my sixth one. But each one is different from the others so it's not like I have a lot of repeats. Two of my boxes were gifts. The one I just ordered I ordered for doing charaben. It's hard to do charaben when you don't have a single flat bento.
They way I get them is I save up. Whenever I have a little extra play money I split it up between bento stuff and books. I also constantly look at bento stuff so that way I know that what I'm ordering will be useful to me. I use my bento boxes all the time too so it's not like it's a waste of money for me.

Well that's awesome. I mean I didn't mean to offend, sorry ^^; I just find that really awesome. Really need a job before I buy any of that stuff. :( I wanted to buy this book on what to cook for bento boxes at this con but I decided against it. It had pictures but it was all in japanese. xP they even had this I guess kinda big flat bento box that I thought was so beautiful but the price on it said 40 and well in the end I went with my little 12 dollar one and I'm quite happy about. I even made my bag for it. :dummy:

Oh no you didn't offend me at all! I was just explaining what I had and why I have them.
If you want a good bento book you should check out Yum-Yum Bento Box. It's easy, in english, and not hugely expensive. You can find it off of amazon.com which is where I got it.
The flat bento I just bought was $3.50. Shipping for my order was $5 something, and I got three other items with it. Granted it's not "pretty" but the box wasn't my aim, it's the bento I put inside of it that is. And it fits my needs. If you want some cheap bento you can check out jlist's natural bento. They come in green, pink, and brown. They have long bento, flat bento, plastic wear, and onigiri snack bento. They're all quite cheap, though they are all solid colored. But they serve the purpose.
Did you put it on dA? I would love to see it!

I just ordered new one, on that I need to make good Charaben. I'm very excited. You can buy them cheap on jlist. You can find the cutters and onigiri shapers too. But I buy the cutters from craft stores.
And I molded these onigiri by hand >w<
