爱。开心便当のPink bunnies sandwich

Happy Chap Goh Meh (元宵节快乐)!!! :)

Son no need to go school today, so I have made him this pink bunnies sandwich bento yesterday. 

Chap Goh Meh represents the fifteenth and final day of the Lunar New Year period as celebrated by Chinese communities. The term is from the Hokkien dialect and refers to the fifteenth day of the first month, which is the occasion of the first full moon of the New Year. 

The occasion is marked by feasting and various festivities, including the consumption of tangyuan (汤圆) and Kue Keranjang. In traditional Chinese culture, it is also celebrated as the Lantern Festival or the Shang Yuan Festival. In Southeast Asia, however, it coincides with the Chinese Valentine’s Day.  It is also when young unmarried women gather to toss tangerines into the sea, in a hope that their future spouse will pick it up – a custom that originated in Penang, Malaysia.  In the past, this was also the only day that unmarried ladies could be seen with their partners.

In order to celebrate both occasion, I made this pair of bunnies which is suitable for Lunar New Year together with the Chinese Valentine’s Day.  I made a pork jerky sandwich and on top of it I used pink egg sheet, nori and cheese to make the bunnies and the pink hearts .

Other than the bunnies, they are sausage pineapples, mini sausages tangerines and a pear in the bento.

Have a joyful Chap Goh Meh and Happy Chinese Valentine’s Day. :)
