I'm in Santa Clara and I don't think getting to Fremont is a bitch since I have
a car, where exactly is Beaman's anyway? If you ever feel like going over there
for Gundam models, maybe I can give you a lift since I have no idea where the
heck Beaman's is at.

I usually go with Nissin noodles because they are indeed pretty cheap and taste
MUCH better than the American ramen. Since I am originally from Hong Kong, I
am also partial to the "Doll" noodles, which is even cheaper! I was in love
with Korean noodles for a while because they are about the spiciest ramen out
there, but had to avoid them ever since my severe ulcer problems started. Yeah,
I know what you mean, I often slurp Japanese Ramen while watching anime or
building Gundam models. Convenience is the thing and nothing is simpler than
the instant ramen, tastes much better than the typical TV dinner IMO.
