Around the World with Instant Noodles: 15 Fascinating Hacks to Serve Instant Noodles in Various Countries

Hi everyone!

How long have you been staying at home for quarantine because of Coronavirus?! While some of you are probably busy trying to try new recipe because you’ve been blessed by astonishing cooking skills, some of us could only thank God for the invention of one thing: instant noodles.

Well, at least for me. I suck at cooking, and I’m proud to say that I’m a delivery queen. Honestly, I don’t think I’d survive if I had to get stuck in the quarantine 15 years ago when delivery service was very rare. LOL.

So anyway, this gave me an idea to compile various instant noodles around the world. And in this post, I’m collaborating with some other fellow bloggers to present instant noodles in various countries with some hacks to serve it when you feel a bit fancy.

I mean, I’m from a country where Indomie comes from. I don’t just buy them when I’m on survival mode. I buy them because it’s a necessity in my household. #asianproblem

And speaking of Indomie, my Indonesian pride kicks in when I found out that the brand is well-known in so many countries in the world. Even better, because they also have their own way to serve the noodles.

What You Could Get in New Delhi for $10 – Places with Free Entrance to Visit in the Capital City of India

If there’s one city that I’ve been, but I feel like I’ve never been to… That would be the one that we’re going to cover for the $10 series this week: New Delhi!

Years ago, when I still worked as a flight attendant, I once had a layover in New Delhi for only 12 hours. I didn’t get a chance to get out of the hotel because it was too short and I needed to rest before operating another flight the next day, and as surprisingly as it sounds… I never got another flight to New Delhi after that.

After covering Mumbai and Leh a couple of months ago, to make up my regret about the capital city of India, I’m happy that we’ve got Shivani from The Wandering Core here to cover New Delhi for this week’s $10 series. So, how far could you get with your $10 in New Delhi?

What You Could Get in Leh for $10 – Things You Can Do in the Most Picturesque Place in India

Hi everyone!

Just recently, one of my friends reached out to me as she was interested to go to Pakistan and India but she didn’t want to go there alone. She asked whether I wanted to go with her. First of all, if given a chance to explore the new place that I’ve never been, I’d definitely say yes.

However, since the only way to travel for me these days is by saving up… As much as I want to go to Leh and Kashmir, for now, I have my own priority as I’ve been saving up for my next destination myself. But hey, I may finally stop by India in 2021 or so! 😉

Speaking of which, on this week’s $10 series we’re also gonna talk about another city in India. After covering some other cities from Mumbai to Darjeeling, today we’ve got Radhika of Nomllers to talk about Leh in Ladakh and see how far you could get there within the budget.
