How I Mess My Noodles
This is a short story on how I mess up my delicious noodles.
It was a normal day in the office when I take a short break to eat noodles.
I open it up to see the noodles and its various seasonings.
I quickly look at the symbols for the cooking-instruction reference.
Here’s the first instruction:
So, Step 1 is poke the lead with a fork…
…then open up the seasonings.
And mix them with the noodles.
It begin to feel like this is a cooking lesson. But it’s not.
Now for step 2.
Pouring in hot water to my noodles. We’re starting to cook.
Okay, so let’s close the lid, keeping it there for a while to get cooked, and wait for further instructions.
Commencing step 3!
Drain it baby! Drain it!
And just like you peeing, there is always a little bit more.
There you go.
Now, let’s open it up to see the beauty of the noodles.
Now for the final step:
Add the seasoning and mix.
Did you say ‘add the seasoning’?
What the heck is step 1?
Looking back at the symbols curiously:
Step 1 and 4 both added the seasonings.
So where did I made my mistake?
Step 1 says add only the garnish.
I got no choice but to eat the finish product in a not-so-properly-cooked form.
And that is how I mess my noodles.
Don’t be deceived by symbols. Read the instructions.
Until then, see you in my next post.
