Now I cannot go back to my home country due to covid-19. So I made this "Starry Night" bento abroad because when I look at the sky anywhere on earth, I feel more like home. Moreover, this bento was inspired from Van Gogh, a great artist who was suffering from mental illness. I want to cheer up people who are having mental problems during this difficult time. I would like to tell them that "even if you are having a difficult time now, one day you could shine your talent or create something beautiful".Your personal recipe or ingredient tweaks
I wanted to make a colourful bento from 100% natural ingredients. So I made blue rice with butterfly pea flowers which are full of antioxidants. Then I mixed my blue rice with garlic fried rice to make it look like the sky in the oil painting. After that I add "Laab" (Thai salad) with lots of coriander to make it more healthy. Finally, I decorated the bento with omelette, and threw some chopped nori with the feeling like I am making the last brushstroke on my painting.
