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.

Vietnam-Cambodia by Land: Ha Tien to Kampot with Champa Mekong Express Bus

Hi everyone!

I know I’ve been missing in action for the past week because I got sick. I was planning to write about the review of my journey to get across Vietnam-Cambodia border by land last week, but then I just didn’t have the energy to do it so here I am!

It’s Idul Fitri holiday here in Indonesia, so anyway Happy Eid Mubarak for those who celebrate it… Anyway, I’m not so big at the celebration itself, so in this post I’m gonna share with you my experience to cross Vietnam-Cambodia border with Champa Mekong Express Bus.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I couldn’t find any transportation option from Chau Doc to Kampot online. Going to Ha Tien first was my only way in order to get the bus ticket to Kampot, since most of the transportation options from Chau Doc to Cambodia go directly to Phnom Penh.

After staying overnight in Ha Tien, I took Champa Mekong Express Bus from Ha Tien to Kampot and I’ll share with you the review of my journey with them here! 🙂
