Online Grocery Retailers/ Suppliers with Delivery Service Malaysia


Movement control is introduced to break the chain of the coronavirus (COVID19) infection. Many people turn to online grocery shopping to avoid close contact with more people; when selecting the things to buy, queuing, etc, especially in crowded shops or markets.

Tesco Supermarket


To avoid the crowd, these are your alternatives:
  • Online Grocery Retailer (with cart/ checkout system) - Delivery slots are usually fully booked for bigger retailers. 
  • Online Manual Order (FB/ Whatsapp) - they can usually deliver or arrange for self pick-up within 1-4 days time. 
  • Online Specialty Store - that only specializes in one type of product namely seafood, vegetables, fruits, meat, organic, etc.
  • Drive-through Service by Aeon: Order online and pick-up at selected Aeon/ Aeon Big outlets  [here]

Deaths in Malaysia Due to COVID-19


Most of the Covid-19 related deaths happened outside of the Klang Valley. More attention has to be paid to equipping those hospitals to weather through this health crisis. There were donations coming in; amounting to millions of ringgit, masks, and other equipment on top of allocation by the government to the MOH announced by the PM. In response to the incidents where healthcare workers had to make their own protective suits from garbage bags because there were not enough to go around, I hope that the distribution of PPEs and funds for medical needs can be done with more deliberation. #noMiddleman
