Because good food comes to those willing to wait

It’s raining hard. You’re in Metro Manila so it’s probably best to avoid the streets. But you’re also hungry and not in the mood to cook. You’ve run out of pancit canton and there’s nothing in the fridge except condiments and stale leftovers.

But you do have a phone. And the means to pay. So your best bet is to do what all sane, condo-bound people do in this situation: blow more money than you intend on a delicious rainy day take out!
