Kimchi Noodles

I haven't had instant noodles for ages and this time I made an effort to 'dress up' my normally modest instant noodles. It's also incredibly easy to make and would make a perfect supper or a meal for one of those days when you just can't be bothered cooking.
1 hard-boiled egg (sliced in half)
3 prawns
3 cherry tomatoes
3 shitake mushrooms
2 spring onions (finely chopped the green parts)
3 tbsp frozen pea
a handful of chopped white cabbage
napa cabbage kimchi (as much as you can take :D)
1 packet of kimchi flavour instant noodles

1. Boil water, add the seasoning from the noodle packet.
2. Add prawns and boil for 3 mins
3. Add mushrooms, peas and white cabbage and continue cooking for another 5 mins.
4. Add tomatoes and spring onions.
5. Add noodles and continue cooking for 3-4 mins
6. Top with boiled egg and kimchi
7. Devour :D

This dish somehow reminded me a lot of the time when I first left home for college. Admittedly instant noodles are not good for you but it's an integral part of being an Asian :D

During college days we'll have instant noodles plain cos we were too poor then!

is that shin ramyun or nong shim ? they both looked so similar, I tend to get the wrong packs, and I'm all confused which is a better brand hehe..anyway, I was craving for ramen lately, and had a similar version at the ramen place here, USD$8, should have just made it at home, plain simple and yummy !! Best of all, you get to put whatever stuffings you wish :)

Tigerfish: I absolutely adore kimchi. I wish I can make my own kimchi though.
Melting Wok: I don't really know the name to be honest with you (hence my name is truly the novice cook :D). I guess it's much cheaper to make something yourself than buy it :D
