July Anniversary Giveaway Week #1
Well, the first grand prize giveaway has ended and I have contacted the winner, but no word yet, so no official announcement yet. If I don’t hear back in another week, I will award the prize to someone else.
It’s the first full week of July so the third month if the special 5-month Anniversary Giveaway Celebrating 5 Years of Asian Addicts Anonymous is now commencing. I started with anime and moved on to manga and before diving into anything else (like music and dramas), I really started to get into Asian food.
Honestly it wasn’t like until the end of high school into my starting college that I started liking it. I still remember my trip to Florida in ’98 and visiting a Chinese buffet with Stepmom #1. I loaded my plate full of food and unfortunately when I sat down I smelled something I could not smell while I was getting food in the line and it was stinky and it was on my plate and after that experience I swore off Asian food, lol. Some weird brown noodles with a strange smell and a taste I did not like. Ah, the innocence of youth.
In more recent years, I have started learning to make authentic Asian dishes along with American Asian-inspired dishes. I’ve had successes and failures and my repertoire has kept expanding. So, welcome to the food-inspired giveaway. Oh, there will be actual food given away, but you’ll have to wait until the end of the month for a 6-month subscription to a Japanese goody box service.
If you read manga, watch anime, and/or watch dramas, you see those bento boxes. Doesn’t it may you want to have a cute or pretty bento of your very own? Well, wait no more. The winner of this week’s giveaway will get an official Studio Ghibli My Neighbor Totoro bento box with chopsticks!
It’s a fully functioning, BPA free plastic bento box with a carrying strap. To win this first item, simply tell me in the comments below what your favorite bento scene was that made you want your very own.
