Bento Lunch: Happy Chinese New Year Snake bento

Chinese New Year will fall on a Sunday this year and we will be having our reunion dinner on Saturday night. As it is a Saturday, when I usually don't cook anyway, we will be enjoying a traditional Chinese New Year dinner at a restaurant.

This is the time of the year when I miss my family and friends  terribly and all the good foods, dragon dances etc. Well, I am very happy with the family I have now and will not dwell too much.
Wishing everyone who celebrates 'Gong Xi Fa Cai' (in Mandarin) or 'Kung  Hei Fat Choy' (in Cantonese dialect which I speak often). Happy Friday and have a fantastic weekend everyone!
