Left noodles boxed up on the kitchen counter all night. Is it okay to eat?

okay, so last night I ordered my favourite noodles, and they are sent to me in the traditional shaped noodle boxes. Once it got to me, I found out I wasn't as hungry as I thought. So I closed the box back up and left it out over night on my kitchen counter.
My kitchen is pretty damn cold, but not as cold as a fridge.

Anyway I came downstairs today and was sooo hungry and rushing that I had a chopstick full of the noodles, THEN remembered the rule about noodles and rice being left out and that you shouldn't eat it. I haven't had much, but I ate some :(

Will I be ill? Or will I be okay?
