As requested, #71 has been resubmitted with a smaller "N" (and provided on different backgrounds).
The bowl is a way to represent all of Asia, without committing to any one regional or cultural food that may exclude another (Could be rice, vegetables, noodle bowl etc.).
I also see the request regarding bamboo and durian. The current concept with the bowl has the chopsticks, bowl and steam to all work together as they are integrated into the logo. Swapping out the bowl for any other element would change the logic of the steam and chopsticks -looking a little odd.
Or are you requesting to see entirely new logo designs using these elements?
