Rice is the New Potato


I'm a night owl, so I normally wake up between 3-5pm. Then I'd wait for Mike to come home, and we'd go eat his dinner and my lunch (I skip breakfast).

Then every night, at about say 2am, I'd start to feel hungry again.

But more often than not, THERE IS NO FOOD AT HOME!! Well either no food or I'm too lazy to cook whatever is in the fridge.

And I'd start to do crazy things when I'm delirious with hunger.

For example...

Open and close the fridge door despite being disappointed 1,670 times.
The only thing that grew in the fridge is probably mold.

I'm sure many of you do this!!!

Then I'd try to convince myself that I'm not feeling hungry at all. And that the pangs and salivating just means I'm like cold or something.

Then, subconsciously, I'd start biting my nails.

I think that's coz my body thinks that eating bits of dead skin is better than eating nothing at all.

Unbeknownst to my body I'm actually eating bits of French gel, so that shouldn't be good at all.

Still I'd be hungry, so I'd try extreme methods to curb my hunger:

No, it doesn't work. Still hungry! Roar!!

Method 2: Distract myself by doing small-talk with myself

Ok that doesn't work either.

Method 3: Distract myself by pretending I'm a movie star

And belting out relevant soundtracks. AND ALL THAT JAZZ!!

I bet Catherine Zeta Jones never feels hungry!!

After a while more I'd start contemplating eating everything.

For example, would this stuffed rabbit taste nice sauteed lightly with butter and asparagus? Would about this boot? Maybe it would be ok-tasting if I boil it with some chicken stock.

After a while I'd realise that these household objects will not be yummy.

Then I would....


BITE MIKE!!!!!!!!!!

FHL hahahha!! But yummy as he is, he doesn't satisfy hungry coz my teeth are not sharp enough to eat him. How do cannibals do it??

But not to fret... Now I have a new and mega easy HUNGER SOLUTION!!!


Brand new Rice Crisps by Mister Potato!!

Made with a secret combination of potatoes and rice for a light crispy snack that will satisfy any hunger cravings!


Being Asian, I obviously LOVE rice. And now I can haz rice with my potato chips, making it even healthier!

I was totally surprised when I bit into the chip... It tastes almost exactly like normal potato chips but just that little something is different. Like the aftertaste is sweeter or stronger or something. My favourite is the Sour Cream and Onion!!

Actually I got given 4 canisters of these chips but within 2 days 2 cans are finished already by my friends who came over for mahjong -_- They said it's really nice.

But it's ok to munch on these chips, coz the Rice Crisps have/are:

No Added MSG

No artificial colouring

Cholestrol and trans fat free

20% less fat than conventional fried potato chips yet taste just as delicious

First of its kind in Singapore

And an awesome alternative to other snacks!

Comes in four flavours too!!

And even can eat it on the go since it comes with these handy aluminium canisters. :D
