Hunger brings the best [recipes] out of people.

I was starving a couple of hours ago so I fixed myself late dinner. Early this evening, I did a 4km walk around the sports center oval and just had water. Last year, I started walking 4 to 5 km a night for almost 2 months then stopped in mid-December when my sister and her family flew back into the country for a month's vacation. It was all downhill from there. Last night, after 3 months of being a couch potato, was my first time back on the track. Tonight, my second time. I'm pretty much determined to keep it up since school is almost over and work is about to begin (hopefully next month). I missed the tracks. The hour's worth of freedom and free-thinking just going round and round the oval. It's priceless.

This recipe right here, is so good and so simple, I asked myself why I haven't thought of it before. It reminded me of ages ago when a friend and I wrote a song. It was around lunch time and we could seriously eat a horse but we opt to finish the song. In 30 minutes, we've written an awesome pop song. After eating though, we tried to make another one, something even better than the first. It took us the whole afternoon to come up with something we didn't even cared to keep. Also, there are times when I wouldn't eat before a test. I find my mind work better when my tummy is empty. I have never looked it up before but now, I did and here's what I found.

So after all, there is some sort of connection. Cool!

Here's another easy but oh so yummy recipe. The name is a mouthful just like the way you want it in your mouth! Perfect when you are super hungry and couldn't wait any longer. :)



2 pack Instant noodles (I used the new kind fortified with Malunggay)
1 small can Tuna in oil 
2 tbsp Oyster sauce
1 tbsp Sesame oil
1 medium White onion, chopped
a dash of ground Black pepper
a dash of Garlic powder


1. Cook the instant noodles by package instructions. Usually, you boil 2 cups of water in a pan and add in the noodles. Let sit for 2-3 minutes then drain it and set aside. Do not add the seasoning. You only need the noodles for this recipe.

2. Use the same pan to conserve water. Saute the onions in sesame oil until it becomes translucent. Add the tuna and its oil, oyster sauce, black pepper and garlic powder. You can use fresh garlic if you don't have the powdered kind. Mix for 2 minutes.

3. In the pan, move the tuna and onions to one side. Take the noodles and stir it into the other side just like below. Do this for about a minute.

4. Place the noodles on a plate and then top it with the tuna and onions and you're done!


Until the next eats!
