This week's Bento Challenge entry! The theme was "Under the Sea"... The sea turtle is in memory of the one we spotted when snorkeling in the Maldives.
It's a bit hard to see the turtle, as he's camouflaged in all the seaweed, dried black fungus, mushrooms, dumpling and capsicum coral - quite realistic, I guess! The turtle is made out of shrimp and mushroom fried rice, with a spinach shell.
The side dish is a fruit jelly, with a konnyaku jelly sea (which is lighter in colour, the photo makes it look a little dark, but by the time I was done I'd lost most of the natural light) and a strawberry parrot fish, and watermelon and honeydew coral. There's also a little strawberry crab and a honeydew starfish that's sitting in the corners, but they are a little hard to make out in the photo.
