I'm back in Jb and loving it.
So far i've been doing things i cant do in Ipoh like..
1)watching TV (so sad i know)
2)cooking instant noodles (ok minimal cooking)
3)buy pirated dvds (i do purchase them in Ipoh but the selection there is really bad)
4)play badminton (hey i still remember the strokes but my stamina very off)

So religiously i've been watching project runway season 4? or is it 5? Both on channel 5 and astro. Its not the latest season but still mmmm.. love it. It's 'fierce'.Not studying for paeds at all.. ugh maybe in KL? Going to have a little gambling trip with JH whereby he gambles and i support him. And hopefully shop.

I really really have so much love for instant noodles its incredible.Further heightened by the fact tht i cant cook over in Ipoh .So i guess this is a tribute post to the worlds best culinary invention ever.

Since childhood it became breakfast occasionally.
Yum slurping up hot soup with springy noodles was a really great way to start the day.

The first noodles i have ever eaten is prob Maggi Kari.Yup the soup is great.But i grew up and explored other possibilities. These are some of my top picks.

Maggi Assam Laksa

This one is probably one of my favourites.Does not taste like assam laksa at all. It is vesty and spicy with sourish notes. Not a popular fave of everyone.A friend used to say it has a herbal taste?But i totally disagree. Like a durian this is an acquired taste.But when you like it you're stuck with it.I sometimes like it soupy or even as a thick gravy.

Rating : 5/5

Maggi Tom Yam

This i know a lot of people love. You can make it super spicy by adding less water. Alternatively you can drink the soup up super fast.Salivating while i'm typing this.

Rating 5/5

Myojo mee

Omg i dunno where this brand has gone in Malaysia.I've been searching high and low in every hypermarket in Ipoh and JB but to no avail!I was introduced to these noodles by my childhood friend Callie in primary school.I was amazed she could cook it herself. And to my primary school eyes she did it with expert culinary skills.It was also the first time i tried out dry instant noodles.The perencah is just spicy enough without being too hot for primary schoolers.

Rating :6/5

Limited edition stuff. Gonna get Daniel to bring it over from Singapore.

Daddy mee

His one is amazing! Introduced by my friend from Miri.Used to be sold exclusively in east Malaysia only. She had to ship it over muahaha and magnanimously let me try. Now its sold in hypermarkets everywhere.
Its a 3 in 1 instant noodle.
Can be eaten as a
1)soup noodle
2)Dry noodle
3)As a snack (means something like mamee snacks la)

Very interesting at the time.

Rating : 3/5 (now it tastes kinda bland)

Shin ramyun

Since i cant cook in Ipoh had to turn to cup noodles. And this is one of the best.The cooked form i am so not sure. But the cup noodles were fantastic. Really burning hot spicy soup with tasty springy noodles. Really different from other noodles that you get elsewhere.

Rating : 4/5


I've never tried anything but the dry noodles and its really good la.In fact i think it was previously called indofood mee goreng and tht was even better cos it had fried crunchy stuff to sprinkle on the noodles.

Rating : 3/5

And while i was looking for pics i came upon this.

Hello kitty instant noodles anyone?

I know i love the cat so much but even this is a bit far out for me.I dont want kitty floating in my soup..

Wonder how the perencah tastes like tho.


Rating : 5/5 for packaging
0/5 for taste (cos i really dunno)
10/5 for intriguing factor

To me all the other brands and flavours are not worth trying so don't bother trying anything else.

Ta for now.
