Cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain, wash with cold water and set aside. Mix rice vinegar, soy sauce, oyster sauce and chicken stock in a bowl set aside. This is for the sauce.
Heat oil in a skillet or wok and add minced ginger. Stir fry for a minute and add carrots. Cook on high heat for another minute and add shrimp. Cook the shrimp till it turns white and add mushrooms. Fry the mushrooms for two minutes and add the bell peppers and the sauce.
Simmer the sauce for a minute. Now toss in the noodles. Mix well and cook for another minute or till the sauce has thickened and the noodles have absorbed the sauce. Top with green onions and serve immediately.
