instant noodle = my condolence to the creator family but...
Mr. Momofoku Ando... the creator of instant noodle.. the ramen noodle of Nissin.. passed away a few days ago - read about it HERE - while i was reading the utusan about his 'passing' I was actually slurping my favourite Maggi mee curry flavour with a bit of oil and 3/4 boiled egg - oh so yummy..
hmm... i know it is not a very healthy food - but always the unhealthy one is the mouth watering one - espescially when it is very easy to prepare and to get.
..well then after a few days blogging break due to my reschedule-sleep-time-"jet-lag"= blues, I figured i write about instant noodles.. and so as per normal i will browse or specifically 'googling' around the topic - i knew the 'not-so-good-news-contents-for-our-health' - and i just pickup some interesting infos from it. .. ( ok ..ok .. maybe it is 'ancient' info hehe)
Quite frightening - espescially when i open the fomca ( in malay and pdf format ) website, on how the coating of the noodles contain wax ( which prevent the noodles to stick together when we pour hot water on it) can be in your system and will not disolve until three days - so it is adviseable to not take instant noodles 3 days in a row or more...but in urban legends web deny a bit about the facts about the wax that can cause harm to our health - but I guess we have to balance the story. Instant noodles now are called cancer noodles.
There were times when i craving for my favourite maggi mee and I ate 2 nites in a row for supper..why supper - because I dont want to eat during the day..to hide from the kids..and its bad for kids..altho i give them arnd maybe once in a month...and because of that instant noodles is like a very special food that they can only get rarely..
The seasoning also is another health issue - i think - but i cant find any comments / complaints or research about it..it may be harmless...
but then again...
Most process food and fast food - r not nutritious enuff.. the best is always home cook meal and the very best is organic food ( but I cant afford that n I wish I could )..
but why am i talking about cancerous food when I... (y'know lah Paul heheheee )
..and that day..my other half told me .. he is bored and hungry in the office..took the MAMEE snack.. put in a cup..pour in the seasoning..and slurrrppp ..collegue was sniffing - went near him - wondering what was it - and everybody copied the idea..ehehehe..what da...hehe
..in this global warming era.. the best is exercise and drink a lot of water
Nevertheless, instant noodle is my favourite - always make sure theres stock in da house in case the lazy-to-cook syndrome and supper-hunger blues and of course emergencies and for my 'lucky' guest..heheee..and hey..now its consumeable in space.. ;-P
