Instant Fried Noodles Recipe (Indomie)
Who here on Vingle freaking loves Indomie's Fried Noodles? @miranpark88 @shoenami @cheerfulcallie @Tapsamai "No matter how much of a foodie you are now, everyone has lived the instant noodle lifestyle at least once in their life. Whether you were a broke college student, a busy working professional, or a harried soccer mom, at some point instant noodles were (or still are) a primary staple food. It sure was mine when I went to college. Most people never lose that taste for instant noodle soup, I haven’t, but now I like mine dry and fried. The tough choice is which brand to select. Walking down the aisle in any Asian supermarket one can find an amazing variety from all over the world. There are Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Malaysian, Thai, or American (Cup Noodles, etc.). For me, after sampling all the different instant noodles from around the world, I always go back to Indomie, which is originally Indonesian. Don’t get me wrong, I love our own Malaysian Maggie Mee, especially AssamLaksa and Tom Yam flavors, but when it comes to Mee Goreng (Fried Noodles), Indomie is the one. Period… Now how do you make a plate of seemingly uninteresting fried noodles into mouth-watering Deluxe Fried Noodles? Here is what I do." Indomie Recipe Ingredients: 1 pack of Indomie Mi Goreng (Fried Noodles) 3-5 shrimps, shelled, deveined and cut into small pieces 1 egg Method: Fry the egg. Fry the shrimp and save the remaining oil. Boil your noodles and mix with the sauces provided. Served with the fried egg and shrimp. Drip the remaining oil on top of your noodles for the extra zest.

3 Super Salads to Power You Through the Week
Are you dreading it's only Tuesday? I'm feeling the same. I barely recovered from a bad cold and my body is lacking energy. I know that because my digestive system has been a weird lately. Which is why I'm sharing three super salads to help you (and me) power through the week! Spicy Shrimp & Avocado Salad Staring at the photo alone already brighten my appetite. This green salad is filled with vitamin and good fats. Grilled some shrimp on a pan, chop up some spinach, baby kale and cucumbers, toss in a few cubes of avocado and you're done! Lime juice is sufficient for me but if you like more flavor. The original recipe uses a miso dressing. To make the dressing simple combine 1-inch peel ginger, 3 tablespoons lime juice, 1 1/2 tablespoon white miso and 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Adapted from: Pinch of Yum Fresh Spring Salad with Poached Cod Here's a nice salad to kick start your spring and to bring balance to your tummy. I know eating fish is healthy for me but I hardly eat them. I could only do two bites of raw salmon and I'm done. To get a little omega-3 in my diet poached cod doesn't sound like a horrible idea (I'm horrible with the skillet anyways). Just make sure you don't overcook it. 5-6 minutes in boiling water is sufficient! Take it out and plate it on a salad with parsley, beets, radishes, spring onions, pea shoots and parsley. For the dressing - 2 tbsp rapeseed oil or olive oil, 1/2 tbsp white balsamic vinegara, squeeze of lemon, sea salt to taste. Adapted from: Dagmar's Kitchen Edamame and Radish Salad I promise this is the simplest super salad ever. Boil a cup of edamame and toss it diced onions (or shallots) and radishes. All you need for the dressing is - 2 tablespoons vinegar, a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar (no more than 1/8 teaspoon). Just before tossing everything together add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Adapted from: Alexandra Cooks Let's eat our way to a healthy week guys!
3 luxury sustainable spas in Bali
Bali has a lot of spas; in some areas, every third shop is a spa. All varieties of spas can be found as well -- from local to international award winning spas. In recent years, a lot of people have become more conscious of what they put on their skin. The skin absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it, so with increasing amounts of chemicals in many products, it can lead to allergies or worse. One way to avoid this is to choose a spa that uses naturally made products and takes an approach that is kind to your skin. Local Indonesian jamu (traditional medicine) methods have always done this but a few luxury spas in Bali not only use natural products but also take the spa experience to a new level of comfort. The Spa at Alila Soori Villas The Spa is housed in a sustainably built house with a view of the Indian Ocean in front. Entering this warm and opulent hideaway, the central spa area is dominated by a beautiful pool that instantly adds a sensuously relaxed atmosphere. The traditional Balinese Beauty Ritual is two hours of pure bliss. Balinese lulur is an ancient village remedy with its origins from the rice farmers of Bali that is recognized as traditional medicine. The treatment is believed to help warm the body, relieve aching joints and help in the recovery of troubled or loose skin. Locally sourced sandalwood, fennel seed, star aniseed, eaglewood and fenugreek are blended together to use during this healing remedy. It is a 60 minutes Balinese Massage, body scrub, body mask and mini facial. The massage uses natural oils and you can choose a beautiful aromatic blend to suit your mood. After the massage, you are gently scrubbed using the herbal warming mixture and then wrapped in a cocoon while the gently heated massage table ensures every pore is cleansed and every muscle relaxed. The therapist performs a revitalizing mini facial as you relax on this wave of warmth. Not only do you feel like you are floating on a cloud after the treatment, but you are also assured that only the most natural ingredients have been used during this process. If you loved the products used, there are a wide range of Alila Spa products for sale to take with you. A particular favorite is the Black Volcanic Soap that is made from Balinese volcanic lava. Ojas Spa, COMO Shambhala Estate This famed wellness retreat outside Ubud is the ultimate luxury hideaway in the forest with an ethos based around holistic principles. If you are not staying here, you can come and get pampered at the beautifully serene Ojas Spa. Ranges of treatments are offered here, including hydrotherapy and Ayurveda treatments. This Zen space is very soothing and, set among vast sounding grounds; it is a quiet retreat to indulge in a treatment. Signature massages are done using specially blended oils made on the estate, sourced from local products and 100 percent natural. The Shambhala signature massage is an hour-long treatment and uses innovative long strokes and medium pressure to both relax and revive spirit and mind. Set in a light airy room looking onto a garden, complemented by clean lines to leave the mind uncluttered, this deeply therapeutic technique performed by a highly skilled therapist feels more like a four handed massage thanks to the expertise of the therapist. This is a deeply relaxing and aromatic experience that leaves the skin smooth and supple. Facials are also available using a range of their homemade products called PURIFIES. These products are based on the principles of aromatherapy, incorporating only premium grade oils free of parabens, petrochemicals, artificial fragrance and color. The PURIFY Holistic Facials are deeply calming and catered to your skin type using these products, along with steam and specialist massage techniques to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. Not only are the products used at the Ojas Spa kind to your skin, but also to the surrounding environment. Fivelements Puri Ahmisa This healing hotel is located just outside Ubud in a scenic spot with the river flowing through. The spa is perched right along the riverbank so you hear the flow of water easing past as you are experiencing some incredibly therapeutic and natural treatments. This award-winning spa is unique in that not only does it have a wide variety of beauty treatments, but also healing rituals are on offer from Balinese healers and priests. This means that both body and soul can be nurtured naturally in this wonderful sustainably built bamboo spa. Acupressure with Pak Ketut is designed to trigger the body’s self-healing abilities and uses energy transfer to help heal. After starting with transference of energy, the ritual is designed to relieve both physical and mental strain. This can relieve deep-seated tension and trigger the healing process. The healing rituals harness the power of both natural herbal ingredients and energy. The beauty rituals use a wide variety of natural elements found throughout Bali. Probably one of the most healing plants is the coconut. Virgin coconut oil is one of the most healing oils, naturally antibacterial and nourishing. The Coconut Harmony treatment is a deep massage with this oil, followed by a moisturizing bath of coconut milk, the pure blended aromatic Shakti Oil and scattered with Frangipani flowers. A hewn rock bath gently sheltered by foliage looks over the flowing river below melding nature and the spa together. This wonderful bamboo structure is open meaning that it is a totally sensory experience within nature.
