Snacks in Black

I have been saying that gold is the new black for me. But, when I went to Muji and Jusco $10 Plaza last Friday, I went back to basic and was totally attracted to black, black and black. Call me fickle minded, but look at these blackies and tell me how to resist them

Black sesame sticks, savoury, light, crispy, 100 calorie snack, yay!

Black sesame charcoal pie, nutty, sweet and crispy

The Snacks in Black collection - Spring 2008 - these should make me look slimmer kekeke

I was told to "watermark" my pictures. I kept saying my pictures were not appealing enough for e-pic-pockets, but the truth was, I don't know how to (another lame excuse?!! Please, girl, learn!). OKOK. So, now I have just installed photoshop, and just learnt how to spit texts all over my pictures. At one point, I went through a photoshop-texting-frenzy and here's the text-laden pic:


More than protection, I find it super FUN. I will keep practicing, so, please pardon my texts. It won't be long until I am able to photoshop some yucky-inedible dishes to yummy perfections and con you guys to cook and eat them (jokingggggggggggggggg). MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Hi, Rita! I love your theme of 'black is the new black' for food.
Do you like liquorice? I love it in chewy sweets.
Can you teach me how to watermark pictures?
