Get Your Groceries Delivered From These Stores
The Malaysian Movement Control Order or MCO has changed many aspects of our lives. All over the world, the response to Covid-19 has led to a change in culinary habits and practices. For a time, all the eateries in Malaysia were closed for dine-in, leading people to start cooking at home more. Also, many were having their groceries delivered in order to avoid the crowds at the supermarkets.
Even now, with regulations easing up, many of you may still want to practice social distancing and prefer having your groceries delivered.
