I am not a cup noodles fan but I feel like having one whenever I see someone enjoying a hot cup. It is very tempting specially in early sleepy morning.

It is morning. I feel sleepy. It feels like something is inviting me to take a good nap. Sister is eating a hot cup noodles while I am eating my breakfast. I still feel sleepy so I buy a cup noodles hoping it will deter my sleepiness for a while and allow me to do my important works.

I haven’t bought cup noodles for a while. The last time I remember was during the birth of our youngest daughter. The quick way to fill our tummy while in hospital was to buy prepared food from nearest karinderya, buy breads and biscuits, or get some cup noodles.

It is not like the previous disposable paper version, the likes of disposable paper lunch boxes and cups. This cup is made of PP, polypropylene plastic. A stable and heat resistant plastic polymer that can be reused repeatedly.

So the next thing to do is do the cleaning. Remove the remnants of aluminum cover, wash and dry.
