Occupying the 6th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Snake symbolizes such character traits as intelligence, gracefulness and materialism. When it comes to decision-making, Snakes are extremely analytical and as a result, they don’t jump into situations. They are effective at getting the things they want, even if it means they have to scheme and plot along the way.

The month of April is the month of the Snake. This bento contains:

Top Bowl: Lotus Seed Soup, Dessert

Face Layer: Shrimp Fried Rice, Nori, Wasabi Sesame

Kimono Layer: 2 Fish Fillet, Broccoli, Pear Slices, Cherry Tomato

Not the best picture I know, but getting up before the sun really sucks. This bento was really delicious, especially since I've been craving traditional Japanese foods lately. Since there's no beef I guess it's not exactly sukiyaki anymore, but I used up all the beef I had when I made it for my dad and me for supper. Anyway this bento contains:

Hair Layer:
Miso Soup - (Tofu, Scallions, Shiro Miso, Grated Ginger)

Face Layer:
Sukiyaki - (Udon Noodles -hidden under the Sukiyaki-, Shiitake, Enoki, Shimeji, Grilled Tofu, Cabbage, Konyaku -yam noodles, my favorite!-)

Bottom Layer:
Sweet Pickled Cucumber and Ginger (Homemade)
Sauteed Cabbage and Picked Ginger (Gari - kind that goes with sushi)
Cherry Tomato (Hidden between the two cups)
Broccoli (Hidden with the tomato)
Honeydew Melon

Can:
My favorite Ito En Green Tea!

Please Enjoy~!

Because ANYTHING can be made into a bento, my friends. Anything.

Top tier has mashed potatoes, carrots, lettuce, and gravy. Bottom tier has green bean casserole, stuffing (molded in an onigirl mold), turkey, and cranberries. Pretty traditional, ne? Mashed potatoes and stuffing were homemade. I cheated on the green bean casserole and used canned green beans. >.> Oh, and the little cup thingy on the side has apple juice with cranberries in it. They float. ^-^

The first bento that I've made proportionally correct!
(sorta)

Close up of the major food side.
It consists of sausages, pie (:D), broccoli, carrots, and turkey-stuffed-tomatoes.

This bento was extremely packed and, as a bento should be, nothing moved around. The flavors didn't mix at all, and even the thing I was most worried about (sausage fat contaminating the pie) didn't happen.
This whole side was made the night before because I knew I wouldn't get up early enough to prepare this part XD
Enjoy~

this was my entry for Bento&co's pasta bento contest.
actually i liked my bento until i realised how ridiculously inferior my bento has been compared to the others. ^^° (i really have to learn to decorate everything much more but mostly i don't have much ingredients at home.)

left
iceberg lettuce, radishes, spaghetti nest with 2 meatball birds (the Bolognese sauce is under the spaghetti)

right
a flower out of strawberries, noodle salad with ham fishes (i used shell noodles on purpose, it's funny with the peas. sometimes they stuck into the shells and some of them look like a pearl oyster or something. ^^°)

Happy Easter Minna!
Once again my parents left me for Vegas (to ref at the qualifier) so I'm stuck back here alone. This means my Uncle and I go out to eat and once again we're going to my favorite place Matsuya. It's a very very long drive, but so worth it. Best sushi and most authentic menu I've ever seen! But even with all that I've been looking at bento blogs and all that recently so I decided I was going to make an Easter Bento. I found some really cute ideas and had to do it! Both the little chickie and the bunny ideas came from Anna the Red, she's so creative! Anyway this bento contains:

107 1/2 cup Rice (Green)
18 Kamaboko Bunny
1 Lettuce Divider
30 Chipotle Chicken Flower
40 Mandarin Orange
2 Small Strawberry
52 Inari (Nest Under Chickie)
39 1/2 Hard Boiled Egg
6 Mini Sweet Pepper
1 Carrot Butterfly


Total Calorie Intake: 295

I hope you all have a very Happy Easter!

It's been awhile ; u ; 

Lots of nostalgia making this bento.  It's been 2 years since i posted a bento picture here. Ironically I still haven't upgraded my camera since then ahaha. I limited myself to what I had already had at home which happened to be more than I thought I had. 

Top side >
-Green tea and plain dango with a generous amount of smooth anko spread on top.  
    I would like to had made something more colorful like hanami dango but i'm pretty sensitive to artificial coloring. Maybe if i had beets lingering around or something to use as a dye for pink.

-Honeydew flowers 

(I had actually wanted to grill the dango but figured going that route wouldn't be visually sweet enough P: But I'm doing that with the leftovers tonight = u= )

Bottom side left>
-fresh fruit sandwich 
   sweet roll bread
   crunchy red grapes
   greek yoghurt cream cheese 
(This works best with an array of different fruit. So if you want to try this, i'd recommend that instead. ie: kiwi,strawberry,pineapple~~-- and you can use plain white bread with coolwhip instead. Tasty either way though.) 

Bottom side right>
-Homemade candied rhubarb (a gift) with some coconut flakes sprinkles on top w/ two animal head skewers to pick them up by.
(I placed these in a small white paper gift bag to use as a partition/container, my other partitions are too small to fit in that space)

Bottom bottom> 
-incognito coffee candy 
i just really wanted to put something in there

I got this gigantic bento while I was down in Kansas and this is the first time I've gotten to use it! DBF and I went to the park and had a bento picnic and a really nice walk. Making this bento was a lot of fun. This bento is really huge so I couldn't use up all the space for just the two of us, but we demolished it pretty well either way! I can't wait to use this again ^w^! This bento contains: 

Top Layer:
Japanese Potato Salad (www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_hbPL…
Brie Cheese and Garlic Herb Flatbread Crackers 
Watermelon 

Middle Layer:
Yakitori Chicken Skewers
Mini Shaped Onigiri
Sea Salted Edamame

Bottom Layer:
Hot Fudge Cake

I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. It was yummy and great for the park!

Bento

Here is a new simple and motivating bento for my tomorrow's lunch I am a dummy!  I'm sneezing since last week so I'd better take lots of vitamins :omghai:

The left tray is composed of pasta, carots and chicken sliced flavoured with carry and black pepper.

The right tray is made with kiwi slices - obviously - and a mini carrot cake with cottage cheese. Honestly I don't like cupcakes, I adore sponge cakes filled with cream instead of a kind of dry muffin with lots of cream on top of it, although I admit cupcakes are lovely. So I made sponge cake in a cupcake format with cottage cheese above it. I'm pretty sure it will taste good ^^

Feel free to leave your comments :3

This bento was made for my trip to the zoo!  The zoo turned out to be really fun for me.  I thought I was going to be bored and dislike the place but after I went in there and saw just how big it was and I got so many good pictures with my brand new camera I found that I really liked the zoo a lot!  I will have to go earlier next time though cuz me and my friend kind of went late and all the animals were in sleep mode.  at least I got some really awesome pictures of chimpanzees and cheetahs!  I'll be posting those in the near future. 

Todays bento consists of rice (hiding underneath the food) a hard boiled egg, edimame (boiled in the pods and slightly salted) Pan-fried seasoned tuna, steamed green beans, and a frozen strawberry (I didn't eat it cuz by the time it thawed it was all mushy) and my favorite fish, SALMON! I brined it over night and then boiled it in salted water before baking it.  turned out really flavorful and juicy!  I was kind of experimenting when I did that but I will try again and if it turns out the same i'll do a sort of recipe thing for that.  same with the tuna.  The tuna it actually something I always do and turns out awesome but I never really write down or keep note on how I make it.  but when I do i'll make a recipe for you guys to try out!  its really awesome and addicting!

I admit, this is a pretty stupid idea but once the idea of making this bento box was in my head I wanted to try it.

This bento box is, of course, inspired by the album cover of "Dark Side of the Moon", written and performed by Pink Floyd (one of the greatest bands of all times btw).

This was more about design than taste because, let's face it, most of this bento box is rice and nori (seaweed). But if you spice the rice up with soy sauce and/or furikake it gains taste.

This bento contains:

- Rice
- Nori (seaweed)
- Furikake (spice mixture, underneath the nori)
- slices of red & yellow paprika, umeboshi, cucumber and eggplant for the rainbow

long time no bento! ^^
recently my work schedule changed, which also means my lunch times changed
sooooo....... it's bento time again! :lol:

today's bento was some pasta I whipped up with some spinach, lenga lenga and paprika. I had some unfilled space in my box so I threw in some cherry tomatoes, edamame and some beets. They seem a bit out of place now I see the pic, but it was yummy nonetheless =p

With Russian bombers constantly needing to be intercepted and escorted away from British airspace, the annexation and/or invasion of parts of Ukraine and the rising concern that Life President Putin now has his eye on smaller Baltic states, I’m starting to think the offending nation needs to change one of its symbols.
The Bear just doesn’t suit Russia anymore. I suggest it be switched to the Piranha: A nasty little fish that likes to nibble at things around it.

When all this kicked off a year ago, I felt it rather hard to criticise, seeing how we were involved in the Iraq debacle: a war fuelled by lies to preserve the petrodollar rather than human lives.
What is currently going on in Eastern Europe initially seemed no more or less corrupt in its motivation. The monumental difference, however, is that while our self-serving leaders wanted the Iraq conflict to be contained, the egomanic Putin seems eager for the disruption of war on Europe's Eastern flank to spread.

If I don’t understand something, I try my hardest to learn more about it. Thanks to the internet, that’s easier than ever and leaves people very little excuse to remain wholly ignorant on a subject.

I’ve only posted a handful of images and journals voicing my increasing unease at recent Russian behaviour on the world stage, but within the comments section of each have been very lengthy debates and arguments.
A popular response from the Russian side of things tends to be “You just don’t understand Russia”. They just love saying that, but they never try to explain it, even when you flat out ask them to:



SO, with the heartfelt belief that the more people talk, the more ideas and concepts you share, the better the world becomes:
“You just don’t understand Russia”
“Then explain it to us until we do.”

Go!

Img-00a by techgnotic














In a business of massive ego and terrible behavior directed at slicing and dicing their competition, Leonard Nimoy was known as a total gentleman, a class act all the way and a consummate professional at every turn.


For several generations around the globe he will be forever “Mr. Spock,” the half-human, half-Vulcan first officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise, a United Federation starship exploring distant galaxies on television’s cult phenomenon, Star Trek (1966–69). His first autobiography was, “I Am Not Spock” (1975) and his second, “I Am Spock” (1995). Leonard Nimoy, who died today February 27, 2015, was both Spock and artist and so much more. His multi-faceted life in the arts reflected the 1960s–era of radical cultural flux and personal self-discovery that changed America and the world.


Star Trek was created and produced in the mid-1960s by Gene Roddenberry who, as a U.S. Army Air Force pilot in WWII, survived the crash of a B-17E Flying Fortress and flew 89 combat missions, earning him the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal. Star Trek would be one of the last pop culture entertainments reflecting America’s post-WWII public presumption that American intervention, even military, was always unquestionably a force for good in foreign conflicts worldwide. American science & technology, “enterprise,” democracy and basic goodness were on the march to save the world. The Vietnam War and Watergate scandal would soon shatter this grand illusion.



Nimoy’s “Spock” alter ego on Star Trek was of mixed heritage.



His mother was a human. His father was a Vulcan. In the world of Star Trek, the original main “tribes” of players were the humanoid good guys of the United Federation of Planets. The Vulcans were an alien race who had managed to suppress all emotion from their psyches as a way to avert destructive violence. The Vulcans were usually allied with the Federation. The Romulans originated as a rebel group of Vulcans who rejected the suppression of emotions. They shared the same ultra-logical, ultra-intellectual mindset as the Vulcans, but they could be politically devious and often went in and out of alliance with the Federation in the struggle to defend the universe against the Klingons, the pure evil nemesis race. Spock’s half-human/half-Vulcan no-nonsense personality, only occasionally evincing emotion in a rare moment of concern for Captain Kirk or an even rarer smile, made for moments of wonderful comic relief. Spock became an international pop icon of the scientific explorer leading humanity into the future.












After Star Trek’s cancelation in 1969 and before its resurrection in syndicated reruns and sci-fi conventions, Nimoy became a regular on Mission: Impossible and appeared in numerous other television shows.



He also won acclaim for his roles on stage, including productions of Vincent, Fiddler on the Roof, The Man in the Glass Booth and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.


As an artist, Nimoy was not satisfied by only acting in only acting on television, in films and on stage, as well as directing other actors. He parlayed his fame as “Spock” into getting published as a poet and performing regular public readings of his poems. His final book of poetry, A Lifetime of Love: Poems on the Passages of Life, was published in 2002. Trekkies wanting to check out his poetry are encouraged to visit the online Contemporary Poets index of The HyperTexts. Nimoy’s poems are simple, accessible and mostly about moments in the experience of loving and being loved.




For Susan


people we love


and strangers too


are shedding tears


and walking


sad and dusty streets


your hand touches mine


and comforts me


love is the beginning


and the end



Nimoy’s life-long interest in photography manifested itself in two controversial coffee table edition publications of his portraiture.


Shekhina, published in 2005 is a celebration of Jewish femininity and sensuality — Nimoy’s intent being to cut across stereotypes of “cold” Jewish women. Defenders of the faith seemed to be more offended by Nimoy’s acceptance of “Shekhina” as a legitimate goddess in the Jewish pantheon than by the nudity in most the photos. The Full Body Project (2007) took Nimoy’s objective of redefining female beauty to a new level with a series of portraits of full-figure females in classic nude poses.









Spock Lives! The Second Coming. (1979)


After its cancellation, Roddenberry continued to lobby Paramount for a revival of Star Trek as a feature film, pointing to the reruns’ success in worldwide syndication and then the Star Wars sensation in 1977. The success of Close Encounters of the Third Kind finally got Paramount to relent. Star Trek: The Motion Picture was a moderate success but suffered from a script that was a couple notches too “hard sci-fi” in plotting, dealing with an Earth-launched space probe that achieves full A.I. sentience. It seeks to return to its Earthly creator (as humans yearn to reunite with God?), and is killing everybody who gets in the way of this reunion. Nevertheless, the film did well enough to get a second one greenlighted – and Leonard Nimoy would return as Spock on the big screen in the six Star Trek sequels that featured the original TV series characters. Nimoy would direct two of these sequels as well.



Spock Lives! The Third Coming. (2009)


When Paramount decided to “reboot” their Star Trek film franchise with new actors replacing the TV series’ iconic players, there was great trepidation about fan response. But J.J. Abrams managed to work his magic in capturing the tenor and excitement of the original shows – and the ghostly cameo of Leonard Nimoy as “Spock Prime” sealed the deal with fans, who gave their fulsome approval to the relaunch. The sequel, 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, would again feature a “Spock Prime” cameo – and be Leonard Nimoy’s final appearance in a film.


Leonard Nimoy was an actor who never stopped pursuing other forms of artistic expression, most of which he had some success with. His singing career was ridiculed by critics and fans alike, but he persisted in trying, anyway. In the space of two decades between volumes of autobiography, he was forced to reconcile himself to his persona being, in fact, part “Spock,” forever, whether he liked it or not. The poet in him finally accepted and embraced the proposition.


He was a talented actor, director and photographer. He was an artist’s artist.



I have worn more masks than I can remember


I have been a face without a name


And when like you I ask the final question


Who on earth am I supposed to be


I always come full circle to the answer, me, only me…always me



Leonard Nimoy


(1931-2015)


Live long and prosper.





















For several generations around the globe he will forever be “Mr. Spock,” the half-human, half-Vulcan first officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise, a United Federation starship exploring distant galaxies on television’s cult phenomenon, Star Trek (1966-69). He entitled his first autobiography, “I Am Not Spock” (1975) and his second memoir, “I Am Spock” (1995). Leonard Nimoy, who died today (2.27.15), was both Spock and so much more. His multi-faceted life in the arts reflected the 1960s-era of radical cultural flux and personal self-discovery that changed America and the world.

ABOUT THIS OAKENTOON

The Fellowship of the Pencil ( :pointr: www.facebook.com/TheFellowship… ) has announced a Ferocity Contest - one that's supposed to decide who is the most ferocious dwarf (or burglar) in Thorin Oakenshield's Company. You can probably guess who's my candidate, but just to make sure his #majesty wins this contest, let me post this Oakentoon as my vote :meow:
