Boil noodles for 3 minutes, or until softened, without flavour packets. Reserve flavour packets. Drain noodles, and set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a small frying pan. Scramble eggs in a bowl. Cook and stir in hot oil until firm. Set aside.
In a separate frying pan, heat 1 teaspoon of oil over medium heat. Cook and stir spring onions in oil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a separate dish, and set aside. Heat another teaspoon of cooking oil in the same frying pan. Cook and stir the the carrots, peas and peppers separately in the same manner, setting each aside when done.
Combine 2 tablespoons sesame oil with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a separate frying pan or wok. Fry noodles in oil for 3 to 5 minutes over medium heat, turning regularly. Sprinkle soy sauce, sesame oil and desired amount of reserved seasoning packets over noodles, and toss to coat. Add vegetables, and continue cooking, turning frequently, for another 5 minutes.
