Valentine's Day Bento Lunch #236: XOXO

There are several meanings of XO. Some of my relatives in Asia might refer it to Cognac/Brandy (XO means 'extra old' for how long a brandy is stored). Cooking with brandy is quite popular there and there are many varieties of XO sauce for cooking, yum. This bento is based on hugs and kisses, XOXO!
X = Hug ( It's like arms crossed or wrapped around someone)
O = Kiss ( It's like a pair of lips forming an O and ready to give a kiss)
