Great find on eBay!

Yesterday, Mimi left, and she asked me to keep the blog running while she's gone.
My bento box still hasn't arrived yet; I don't expect it to for a while anyways.

I just found a really, really good deal on a bento and some accessories on eBay! It's got a 2-tier bento box, 2 side dish containers, a belt, a pair of chopsticks, and a drawstring bag! Check it out here!

Hi, everyone!

Hi there! I'm Hannad, the other one-and-only author of this blog. Great introduction, Mimi. I hope our blog stays up for a really long time!
I've had a blog before, you can click on this sentence to go to it. I'm still writing in it, even if there's only one or two posts. You can check out my profile to see a little bit more about me, since I think I'll be wasting lots of space blabbing about myself here.

Today, I have some good news. A few days ago, I spotted this little guy on eBay! It is just too cute and I had to have it.

I know there's that little bit of Engrish on there (Happy animal), but that just adds to the cuteness of the box, right?
I'm just glad it comes with a belt and chopsticks, those would have been a pain to buy seperately. I also found a cute green bandanna to work as a furoshiki for it. Now all I have to do is figure out how to insulate it well enough to keep boiled eggs fresh without all the "insulated bag" stuff...

I hope you enjoy reading our blog as much as we enjoy writing in it! I can't wait to get my first two-tier box!
