the art of cooking pansit canton

Last day, I bought six packs of pancit canton (three sweet and spicy and three toyo mansi – savory of soy sause and calamansi concoction). On that same day that afternoon while raining, I cooked two packs of the sweet and spicy canton. I boiled two glasses of tap then dunked my two square-shaped noodles for three minutes. While cooking my noodles like an Italian chef, I cut one by one the tip of the flavoring packs and seasonings using my incisors, mixed them together until they look like baby shit.

After three minutes, using the lid of the pot, I drained the noodles. Just a friendly reminder, be careful as you could get yourself burned. So I suggest you get a tee-shirt from your heaping laundry bag, using it as pot holder, and stealthily tip the pot to about a 65 degrees angle then gradually increasing the recline until you reach 90. Let the urine-colored water to flow and drain completely. After that, voila! I perfectly cooked my noodles.

Pansit canton is always my most satisfying (instant) meal that is cheap.

Just a funny thought while cooking instant noodles, I realized that it is an art. It exacts and demands accuracy and precision you only find in nuclear physics. It can be frustrating at first but once you get the rhythm and your established your preference for doneness then you can cook it even while sleeping.

Also while eating my instant noodle meal and surfing the net the same time, I found this best web hosting site that is an interesting read for web hosting needs.
