Ohayo from Ohio

Heh heh, not really though. It's night time right now. Anyway, hello, I am Amber and I'm relatively new to Just Bento. I found it one month ago and now I'm a member in possession of my very first bento. It's a pleasure to meet you all.

Hello from Kobe! ^^

Hi guys! I'm Liz (Kalei is my webnick), a Filipina exchange student currently living in Kobe, Japan. I've decided to start making my own bento to take to the university, and this site is extremely helpful. Though I haven't read them in detail, I've seen some posts for dormers/college students/people with small budgets. :) Just what I need!

Looking forward to sharing ideas with you guys! :D

Hello from CT!

Hi everyone!

I new to this bento-making and started making bento lunches for my picky 3.5 year old daughter. I work fulltime, have 2 daughters (3.5 yrs and 7 months) and just started a bento blog to document my novice adventures. I have a lot to learn which is why I'm here. But I am happy to report that my picky eater - who was previously sending home 80-90% of the lunches I sent with her to daycare - is now eating about 60% of the lunches I send. I call that progress! I'm happy to be here and can't wait to learn a lot from you guys!

College student here!

Hello everyone! I'm luzzy and I just joined this community a while ago. I like making bento for myself, but since I'm new, I don't really make fanciful ones.

I often post my bento on my blog

Nice meeting all of you! :)

Long time no post

I was on this forum when it was first set up, but I haven't posted in a while. Allot has changed in my life what with uni and all, but I think I have time to cook myself lunch again (I was already doing dinner and breakfast, there's no way I'm going catered).

I fall in love with bentoing recently early this month :D packing lunch is not a burden any more but it is something that I look forward to and excited about. Thanks to Maki and the rest of the lovely and lively bentoers here!

Happy bentoing!


Bento-making with Food Intolerances!

Hi! I'm new here and new to bento-making -- though not new to the idea of bento and the love of the charaben's cuteness. Like a lot of people, I am sure, I became interested in them after watching anime.

I will be making bento for myself and my fiance. Unfortunately for both of us, I have food intolerances -- anything dairy or dairy-derived and possibly gluten -- and don't eat meat, so our bentos will be on the vegan and possible gluten-free side of things. I'm interested in bento as a way to make sure I know exactly what is in our food. This way I can avoid trouble, you see? (: continue reading...
