Momofuku Ando, The Inventor of Instant Noodles, Dies

This sucks nuts.

I just heard that Momofuku Ando, the inventor of instant noodles, has died.

Now I'm not poor these days (I'm not rich either so put the blackmail plans away), but at the end of this semester I just had no time. I subsisted on Korean ramen, coupled with healthy drinks like fresh juice and health drinks and vitamins. I know, not the best approach to nutrition, but if you don't have time, you don't have time.

I just wanted to post a blog to say Momofuku Ando really did help a lot of students not starve. For that, I thank him. That's cool.

Rest in peace.

  1. That is one interesting news story. He single-handedly raised the sodium level of college students everywhere.

  2. Yep, my doctor was not happy with my bloodwork results.

    I go every month because I'm diabetic, so I get instant reports when my nutrition goes downhill.

    Happy New Year btw!
