Hong Kong’s favourite: Instant noodles


I was always teased for my love of instant noodles. The midnight cravings for the unhealthy food. The other day I took a close examination at it and manipulate the perspective, with some fascinating findings.

This is what that underlies many of our prejudices. Try to pare down and evaluate people or events in their true light.
