nekoblog’s 1st Anniversary!

nekoblog’s 1st Anniversary!
Hey There! :queen:
How have you been doing during the last days? Sorry for the lack of posts, although I really felt like blogging it has been a busy week and I didn’t have the time. The snow is still keeping us waiting and right now it’s rainy and stormy outside. Anyway, today is nekoblog’s first anniversary!
I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for a whole year now. When I look at my first entries I have to smile but I don’t feel the urge to delete some of the old posts or change them because they’re in the past and actually there is nothing I’m ashamed of yet. It’s fun to see all the changes nekoblog and I have been through. To thank you for all your support and lovely comments I decided to host a giveaway. You know how much your words mean to me guys!

Horror, Obento & forever 21

Horror, Obento & forever 21
Hey dearies :swirlheart:
I’m sorry for the lag of posts but I spent the whole weekend watching horror movies. After my polyvore discovery and hours (if not days) of creating templates and sets I was in the mood for some serious horror and my kind of addictive personality made me watch I can’t even remember how many movies in two days.. yes, this happens sometimes. But now I’m back! Today a package arrived for me, my first forever 21 order! But since I manly ordered cute socks I don’t know if it’s even worth to show it to you..ok, ok I’ll quickly make a picture of it :tongue:

I’m so in love with the cute key covers :blinkheart: The delivery was swift but pretty expensive. It’s probably ok, if you buy a lot but the content of this box has almost the same value as the shipping so for me it wasn’t a good deal. Anyway, what I wanted to show you today is my newest Obento!

What I like about this Obento is that it hasn’t too many ingredients. I spare you a picture of my fridge but I can tell you that it’s almost empty. I have to admit that when I started preparing this Obento I didn’t think that in the end it would look so colorful. But once again, it’s the details that make an Obento look fresh and cute.
Some days ago a very nice Japanese lady who reads my blog made an Obento for her daughter with Rilakkuma Inari. When I asked her if her daughter ate the cute bears she answered, yes, but that she didn’t like the flavour of cheese together with the Inari zushi and where she’s right, she’s right. So I thought about something to substitute the cheese and took pickled ginger instead. I’m so happy about the remark of that little girl! I like it a lot more with ginger than with cheese and ham. Also I think that with ginger it looks more natural.

This Obento consists mainly of rice but there is also okra, chilli, carrots, fishballs, ginger, tofu and two dumplings. It’s not so visible but between the two Inari zushi pouches there is a bamboo skewer with fishballs and fried tofu. The pink sakura flowers are made of Gari, pickled ginger. I didn’t take me much time to prepare the rice and the vegetables. I cut the carrot in thin slices and stir-fried them with a little sesame oil, garlic and ginger and used the same pan to stir-fry the okra with some chilli. The rice was quickly done because I made only one cup.
