Bento # 69 – July Birthday Bento

July is another important month to me because  I have 2 family member (Mum and younger brother) and a very good old friend (Dugia) celebrating their birthday. So before the month is over, here is the birthday bento to celebrate their joyful day…

As usual in Chinese tradition, a noodle represent a long life and one should have noodle in her/his birthday. I remember when I was young, mum always  prepare red egg (hard boiled egg dyed with red color) so it’s my turn to prepare the egg for her though they were not dyed into red color, instead I turn them into  three busy bee (should dye them to yellow but I don’t have any natural ingredients available)  to represent the birthday fellow being happily and actively flying in the garden of joy.

I also have a big 2 level birthday cake for them to share, and each person got their own birthday gift.
