Hand in hand…

Gosh! How time flies! This theme song for the Seoul Olympics 1988 by the group called Koreana is 21 years old…

I remember how I loved it then and how popular it was at the time. In fact, no school concert was complete without somebody singing it. I wonder how many still remember the song.

Anyway, this is not going to be about the Olympics, be it in Seoul or anywhere else and neither is it about the song or the singers…but a post about Korean noodles or noodle, as they call it…

This regular commentor of mine, formerly known as housefly but he has left home and no longer infests his house and so he now calls himself intechfly, was singing its praises, so I decided to give it a try.

Good grief! It cost me RM9.00 for a pack of 5 packets, so that would make it RM1.80 a packet…

Inside, you get the usual noodles with a packet of soup base and there is also a packet of some dried stuff including bits of spring onions.

There is slightly more noodles…so you may need a saucepan that is a bit bigger than the usual one you use for the local instant noodles, and you will have to cook it a little longer as it takes longer to soften…

The noodles have a nicer texture – bigger and firmer…and the soup is quite nice too, maybe a bit nicer than the rest, but I would not think it is THAT nice as to be worth RM1.80 a packet. After all, a plate of freshly-made and cooked kampua noodles without meat is only RM1.50!

All things considered, I think I will just stick to our own made-in-Sibu Mee Daddy…

…at only RM3.80 for 5 packets, just 76 sen per packet! Cheap and nice…and for one packet of the Korean noodles, I can have THREE of these! LOL!!! Yum! Yum!
