Here's the last thing to be added. A strange concoction made from the flavour packets of the ramen noodles, cooking oil, vinegar, soy sauce, salt, pepper, sugar, magi and sesame seed oil, all mixed around. Although of course, nothing is going to mix with that oil. This was poured all over the salad, which was them stirred around (very, very carefully thanks to it's heapy nature).
After the mixing, it was sealed up and placed in the fridge, to think about what it had done. Periodically, someone removed it from the fridge, opened it up, stirred it around some more, and put it back.
That happens a couple of times. The dressing soaks into the chow mein noodles, making them not all hard and crunchy, and it does other stuff to other things, and generally makes everything tasty.
