During this difficult time, everyone seems to stock up on food, toilet papers, bottled water, and washing gel. However, is it a good idea that you flock to the supermarket at the same time as everyone else and risk contracting the virus due to being within close distance to one another? Before buying out of irrational fear, let’s take a deep breath and think twice. As you know, going to the store is not the only way to get food. You can reduce the risk of contracting the virus to zero by ordering online. Depending on where you live, you may have access to home deliveries offered by all nearby stores, or none (if you happen to live in a tiny city like I do). However, fret not! Even though the local supermarkets refuse to deliver to your doorsteps, there’s still Amazon. And during this tough time, I’m sure all of us can forgo the luxury of fresh vegetables and juicy fruits for our own safety’s sake.
If you have been wondering what are the best items to stock up on during times of quarantine and lockdown, here are some of the products I don’t hesitate to order in bulk, simply because they have been my comfort food for a long time. And best of all, they have long shelf life.
If you want the true taste of Asian instant noodles, this mie goreng is a must-try. It has many flavours to choose from. But for me, the Hot & Spicy one is the best. Don’t worry. The spiciness won’t make your eyes water or send you looking for a cool glass of water. Do mind that this is a dried noodle dish, so follow the instructions carefully to get the best taste possible. You won’t regret it. To make it even more delicious and nutritious, add a boiled egg to the mix. Or if you have time and feel creative, why not follow the recipe in the video below?
There’s nothing more comforting than sitting in front of the TV watching a classic movie while chowing down on your favorite comfort food: macaroni & cheese. It’s not hard to find it on Amazon. However, as you may know, the more you hurry, the better, as people know too well they need to order before everyone else and hot supplies don’t last long.
What could be better than being able to prepare a plate of hot bolognese pasta right in your kitchen without having to go to a restaurant or order delivery service? Don’t just stock up on dry pasta alone. That’s not enough. And no, you’ll grow bored with ordinary tomato sauce soon enough. Stock up on these ready-to-use bolognese sauce bottles and all you’ll need to do is boiling the pasta. Fry up chopped onions, add a bit of olive oil, and then pour in the sauce. You’ll be amazed by how good it tastes.
If you are looking for an affordable smartphone with a nice metal build, robust octa-core processor, and high-resolution front and back cameras for taking impeccable photos, the unlocked Blu V5 32GB smartphone is a good purchase. For selfie fanatics, the 8.0MP front-facing camera solves the problem most other smartphones have: blurry selfies and video call image quality due to low-resolution capacity. And what’s the point of taking so many beautiful photos when you don’t have enough memory space to store them? The Blu V5 comes with 32GB of internal memory, expandable by up to 64GB with a microSD card. That’s enough space to store at least 4000 photos. But that’s not all. Together with a robust octa-core 1.6GHz processor and 2GB RAM, the Blu V5 is capable of handling most demanding mobile games such as Injustice 2 or Age of Empires. Even if you are not a hardcore gamer, the strong technical specifications guarantee smooth performance and seamless running of programs. For those who have more than one number, the dual-SIM card slot means that you can use both your numbers without needing an extra phone. Priced at only $49.99, the Blu V5 unlocked dual-sim smartphone is a steal considering what it can offer.
