5 Occasions That Call For Food Delivery

Oct 11, 2015

Most of us are not too convinced with food delivery because we see additional costs and we easily forget how it's more convenient for us. We look at it as an expense rather than a benefit. Allow me to share with you some situations where this kind of service becomes really handy. And allow me to also introduce to you a convenient service that will turn those doubts about food delivery to interest.
1. Unexpected Visitors

Don't you just hate it when your friends visit you unexpectedly? It's not that you don't want to see them but because you'd rather want to prepare well for their visit. It's so hard to have sudden visitors without enough or decent food in the fridge to offer; not to forget your far distance from the food block. Though they insist not to worry about it, as courtesy, you will find ways how to get some food or even just drinks to share with them. This is when food delivery becomes handy.

2. Too sick

Who are single ladies here and living alone in life? Well, I'm sure you can relate to this. When you 're single and having the worst day of the month (PMS) or too sick to get back to cook, aside from your family members or your bestfriend, the next person you can rely on is that delivery man who can deliver you the food you want and at the time you need it. Plus, you don't have to worry about how trashy your outfit looks or how sick your face is; no matter how you look like, he will deliver the food to you, without any judgement. PS: Based on experience. Haha!

3. No seats

Most employees would go to fast food chains after work because it is the cafe that delivers food faster than restaurants (and much cheaper too!). However, since almost all of us thinks that way, the fast food chains become crowded especially during rush hour. You know there will be long queues and possibly no seats available but you still go there because you think that lining up, ordering meals and bringing it home rather than cooking yourself saves you time & energy. Think again!

If you're going to buy from a fast food or any restaurant and will still have to wait for your food to be served, or worst, have to take it home because no more available seats for you to dine-in... then why not just order online and wait for it in the comfort of your home? This way, not only are you relaxed waiting for your food to arrive, you can finally catch that TV show you've always missed watching.

4. Overnight Projects

To meet deadlines, we sometimes have to stay late at work or we have to stay overnight at a classmate's dorm to finish the projects. It can be mentally draining and physically challenging especially if you have an empty stomach. We all know how every minute is important in this kind of situation so let's thank food deliveries for giving us the chance to order meals and still have time to continue with whatever we have to finish.

5. Surprise Someone

In most cases, surprises make people happy. It makes them feel valued or loved. Enough of the flowers and chocolates; make someone feel that by surprising them with food! Just pay attention to the conversation you have with anyone dear to you - may it be your partner, your parent, your sibling, your friend, your officemate or even just someone you want to surprise. You know how sometimes, out of nowhere, the conversation leads to food? That's a great chance to know what they're craving for and satisfy that very craving through food deliveries. Not only will they have a heavy stomach, they will also have a happy heart after.


The conversation above is just an example how you can avoid arguments... just kididng! Hehe. This is just a simple example how food deliveries can help you brighten up someone's bad day! Lucky for Metro Manila residents because they have foodpanda to use in these occasions. Hopefully, they'll be available in the nearby provinces as well.
