(#217) Chicken Bulgogi Chinese Dragon Bento

I finally got my own Chinese Dragon cutter I always wanted, ever since Sheri posted her Chinese Dragon's bento on CNY a while ago :):)
I don't remember if I ever celebrate CNY, but back home we always got some special treats from our Chinese friends and relatives. So I feel like I've been exposed to the celebration since I was little. Last CNY I didn't got a chance to have those special cake made from glutinous rice flour and brown sugar, we call it kue keranjang.

Today however I, prepared this Chinese Dragon bento because my son Dylan is so fascinated about it, it's so funny while I am fascinated about dragon veggie cutter, my son at school doing all kind of research and projects on Chinese Dragon, Great Horned Serpent, and such.
One day after school he told me "Mommy, do you know that Chinese Dragon has the head of a camel, the neck of a snake, the ears of a cow, the paws of a tiger, the claws of an eagle, horns of a stag, and belly of a clam" And I am like WOW!! what a descriptions! Love it when they are so excited and the first sentence coming from their mouth is "Mommy, do you know that ..... " Always made my day!!!

Here's the picture of Dylan's project :

Okay, now back to bento :

There's a thin layer of ground chicken bulgogi underneath the rice, I topped the rice with Chinese Dragon shape of takuan.
There are also some stir fry tofu and sweet bell pepper with soy sauce, and inside another compartment are some cucumber and mandarin orange.
I also put some flowered carrot sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds just to add some colors.

Here's another picture :

I hope the boys will love it ^__^

Thank you so much Yen ^__^

I've been waiting for that dragon cutter for more than a month, there was a problem with the store I purchased the cutter from. Matter of fact until now they still owed me some refund money :( ...*UGH* I learned a lesson ... won't buy from them anymore!!!
