一期一会 (ichigo ichie)

One opportunity, one time.

Japanese Kotowaza / proverb

I am a HUGE fan of Nissin noodles. I buy them in cases and occasionally dream about them. Anyways, this trip was more of a ‘pilgrimage’ to Nissin.

 

Just a little bit of history here. Mr Momofuku Ando 安藤 百福 1910-2007, invented THE chicken instant noodle (Chikin ramen チキンラーメン) in 1958. This revolutionised the world – quick meal to treat hungry salary men of Japan, inspiration to space travel meal, the benchmark for noodle preservation technology. The ultimate solution to long nights of gaming, of course.

 

The museum housed the replica of the original kitchen where Mr Ando created the first instant noodle.

Travel for less, this is a how to bargain hunt type of post. I am a huge fan of “value for money” when it comes to travel. Leisure should never break the bank or be poor value for money. The below is what I do for sorting out my trips with travel for less in mind. 7 tips from me 😉

How to start this one? I was craving for some ramen… WHAT on EARTH were they doing?!?!?!?! First of all, the original Hakata concept was simplicity and rustic feeling. So WHY on earth did they glam up and botox the London branch? That’s right, I felt that they’ve BOTOX the place.

Warm and fussy feeling! Rustic decor, but not the rug and plush sort. Beautiful ambiance for hanging out with friends. It was on the noisy chatter side of things, perhaps not so date friendly despite the dim lighting. We were a group of 6. My friends were previously eating all day long. So it was perfect for trying out tapas without fighting over food lol.

This post is entirely inspired by my lovely classmates. People seems to think that I’m in my early 20s (happiness). So, here’s to the list of products that I’ve used for the longest period of time. Only products that I’ve finished at least 3 full size will be mentioned. Well, most of them I’ve used for 4 years+. This is my “most purchased” ever products post and my “philosophy” on staying young. I eat McDonald fairly often btw.
