And yes, I do have money saved up so I can do some dining out while there. To the extent that all I can really buy for tea is two-minute noodles until then.

At any rate, stuff here's cheaper than Sydney - which is not difficult at all apparently.

I can really only recognise them from packages though, a few of the imports I get have absolutely no English whatsoever on there (sometimes there's Engrish if you're lucky, of course) so it's really shooting in the dark. You never know what's going to be in those flavour sachets!

Usually it's just dark soy sauce, garlic / oil thing and chilli powder in one, and fried onions and seasoning in the other, innit?

At any rate, these are the way to go. It always cracks me up when people don't drain the water and start adding stuff though.

Haven't been there in the longest of times, but I figure you're right. Have no interest in going back there anyway - actually, a look at the site for their art gallery might change my mind.

Also, I am so glad I can read Chinese and Malay/Indonesian. It gets you out of so much trouble at restaurants.

Been there twice, seen the touristy things, went to the Mardi Gras, and meh. Nothing remotely interesting there at all. Apart from the Mardi Gras, which was... interesting...

Yeah, for that brand I believe so. But other direct imports sometimes have three sachets, and may have dried fish or vegetables that I am unfamiliar with that look like dried fish and taste funny. That's happened before. I'm no fan of either. Oh well, they're only about fifty cents and the noodle cake tastes pretty good on its own anyway.

Does anyone actually do that intentionally? Once or twice I forget, but it really ruins them. No one's going to eat spaghetti drowned in 400ml of water.

I occasionally have to visit gay bars to see one of my best friends, and depending where it is I usually get enough of the Mardi Gras spirit. I have some mega-rich relatives there (Sydney, not a gay bar). If they pay for my ticket and all accommodation, maybe I'll go sometime.

Oh, the dried fish stuff is just that - dried fish. Tiny dried anchovies usually.

And yeah, one of my friends who'd never eaten the stuff before was going to do it, probably cause he was only familiar with the "wet" type of 3-minute noodles.

Yeah. Yecch.

Whoa, wait a second - he'd never eaten it before?! Maggi two-minute noodles were basically the food of my childhood. You shouldn't have butted in, waited until he'd done it and then pissed him off.

He'd never eaten the Indomie stuff before, only the Maggi stuff, which is usually served wet AFAIK. So yeah, me and another friend were watching him with WTF expressions, then decided to jump in before he hurt himself.
