How to make Ichiran Ramen Instant Noodles

Let me start off by saying - I am not a fan of instant noodles. I used to be, thanks to my father's bad influence and I do occasionally whip up a quick meal of it maybe once a year. I get that it's very convenient to have but for me, it all comes down to taste. There is usually just something nauseating and unhealthy about eating precooked and dried noodles that can last until the end of time.

While I am not a fan of instant noodles, I am a fan of ramen and my favourite ramen when in Japan is...Ichiran Ramen. If you have followed me on my Instagram and on this blog, you would know that Ichiran is a must visit for me everytime I go to Japan. Then in 2017, I discovered that they have launched their very own...instant noodles.

How Not To Cook Fried Pork Lard/ Chu Yau Char/ 猪油渣

Chu Yau Char or fried pork lard is one of my guilty pleasures. It's so sinfully simply delicious either as an addon to a dish or just as a snack to nibble on. And surprisingly making it isn't as hard as you would think as the ingredients only consist of two items and it can be done in less than 30 minutes. However as easy as it is, it's also very easy to screw up. Speaking from experience.

Save on Luggage Space with VAGO baggage compression device

I remember one of my first few trips to Osaka, I went on a last minute shopping spree and discovered that I didn't have enough space in my suitcase. I ended up having to purchase a cute cat-themed suitcase on the night before my flight for all my Kit Kat and kimono. Long story short - running out of luggage space while on holiday is something every travellers has encountered.
