Introducing Ibumie Instant Noodles & Update

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. I stayed at my friend's house while people working on my hardwood floor. When I returned, I had to air my house plus lots of cleaning to do. My pantry needed a thorough cleaning, not helping with the amount of stuff I have in there. Then, I have to wash all my plates, utensil, pots & pans, containers, basically everything. Hence, I have not been really cooking.

Worst of all, my Edda got spoilt at my friend and Lily's house and have been clingy to me ever since we returned. She wanted me to carry her all the times, I put her down, she cried, I walked away, she cried and crawled to look for me. She didn't even want to open her eyes to see the treat I present in front of her, she just cried and cried. She only stop when I carried her. Thus, I need to re-train her to be independent again. If not I won't be able to do anything. Today is so much better, at least she started to play on her own again, crawling around and play with her sister instead of crying and looking for me to carry her.

I want to introduce this Indomie instant noodles to you readers (since I haven't been cooking and have been eating instant noodles), if you haven't tried it already. These Prawn noodle and Herbal Duck Flavour noodle are soooo good. I totally loved it and thought that it tasted better than Maggi mee. The Prawn noodle also comes with dried shallot bits and actually kinda spicy. The herbal duck flavour noodle has a subtle herbal taste in the soup. Furthermore, this brand is more affordable too. If you haven't tried this brand, go ahead and give it a try. For those that living in the States, you can buy it at MyTOA.

We really get lots of variety of instant noodles these days huh?

Poor kid -- a change in routine is difficult for little ones to adjust to. We moved quite a bit when I was younger and it was difficult on my sisters. However, the food looks tasty :)

I don't think the oriental store in Aus carry it yet but the herbal duck noodles caught my eye! =)

My all time favourite instant noodle is Kokka Black Pepper noodles! It's amazing how a humble noodle has become such an important asset to a busy household! =)

Mie sup Itik Herbal? I´ve never had this. Are you sure the trademark is "Indomie"?, coz I can´t find with this Herbal Duck flavour here.

Retno Prihadana said...

Upps..sorry,I´ve just realized when I read ur answer to Isha. So, it´s from Malaysia. No wonder I can´t find here. I bet it´s really tasty.
