Cup noodle Museum!

What's convenient, cheap and yummy?  Staple for all poor university students around the world (I used to buy it at the gas station down the street when I went to University in the UK--believe me I was Poor with a capital P then).  Instant Noodles!!!

Tomo and Shu took us to the Cup Noodle Museum.  To be honest I don't even know where it was,  we just got in the car and got driven.....I think it took us an hour to get there.  It was a small museum, a tribute to Momofuko Ando, the inventor of instant noodles and cup noodles.  

The best part of the museum is that you get to make your own cup noodles.  First you decorate your cup, then you pick 5 ingredients to put in it, pick your soup stock and then they seal it up and off you go with your very own flavour.

Yes, I know, so original.  I cracked under the pressure.

We're so proud

My invention, tofu, garlic, corn, kimchi and egg.  Curry soup base.

As close as Dave gets to cooking

After the Museum, Tomo and Shu took us somewhere else pretty cool.  It kind of looked like the middle of no where, but it was a patch of land just before the airport.  And when you stand there and a plane comes in, it looks like its coming right at you.  It was really pretty amazing.

Me and Tomo waiting

About as close as you can get to a moving airplane!!!

Thanks Tomo, thanks Shu for a really special day.
