Raise your hand if you love a good bowl of instant cup noodles or pancit canton. It's fast and easy to make, delish, and most importantly, it tides us over when we're running short on our weekly or monthly allowance! What if we tell you that your favorite three-ingredient fix hasn't reached its full potential yet? We're talking about peak yummy and just by using stuff you already have at home! We're not kidding—here are ingredients you can add to make your bowl of noodles next level!
- Fresh vegetables
A pack of instant pancit canton already has dehydrated vegetable bits, but that shouldn't stop you from adding more and getting nutrients from fresh ones, like carrots and cabbage leaves.
- Bacon bits and a hard-boiled egg
Pack on the flavor and texture of your instant cup noodles by adding chopped fried bacon and a hard-boiled egg.
- Chili oil
Add a kick to your broth by adding a drop or two of chili oil! This way, you can adjust the level of spiciness according to your tolerance.
- Crab meat, fish balls, and squid balls
Hack your seafood-flavored cup noodles by adding in some crab meat, fish balls, and squid balls!
- Grated cheese
Sprinkle grated cheese (the faster it melts, the better) on top of your instant cup noodles to make the soup creamier.
Because butter makes everything better (repeat 10 times).
- Ginger, garlic, and onions
These ingredients will make the flavor of your broth richer, and the aroma just pure heaven.

We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
