Online delivery is in huge demand all around the world especially when it comes to the food category. There are many reasons why people prefer to order food online. The most common cited reason being busy with work or studies. When we feel tired, we do not have the energy to cook. So, we pull out our smartphones and begin our search online for ready meals on the food applications such as Foodpanda, GrabFood and Dahmakan. These food applications are the most popular among Malaysians.
Online Food Delivery Experiences
I am a graduate student in Diploma of Public Relations and Entertainment Management from Management & Science University (MSU). During my university days, I have another housemate called Alyn who studied the same course as me. We lived with six other housemates who pursued other courses from MSU such as Diplomas in Culinary Arts (Nad and Shira), Human Capital Management (Zu), Early Childhood Education (Mun and Alece) and Foundation in Business (Sara). We were close and treated each other like sisters. Once in a blue moon, we would hang out together and dine at the nearest shopping mall near our home in Shah Alam, Selangor.
Whenever we were too busy to cook, we would order our food online. My go-to meal for dinner was “Nasi Goreng“. We used WhatsApp to order since the restaurant provided us their number for the delivery. One of our housemates would take down our preferences and placed the orders for the group so that none would missed their meal. To us, Malaysian food is always the best. We even brought back homemade food cooked by our families to be shared with one another. For example, one would bring back a spicy dish called sambal belacan. We usually eat sambal belacan with other dishes such as soy sauce chicken, white rice and fried fish.
Are Desserts Available For Delivery?
I love ordering desserts online because I have a sweet tooth. My favourite desserts are cupcakes and tarts. For cupcakes, my favourite flavours are chocolate and red velvet. Generally for my desserts, I prefer chocolate flavour. I fell in love with red velvet for the first time because of its cream cheese topping.
Recently, my close friend Nisa Rapi started an online bakery business. She was my colleague from a previous company. We always had our lunch together in the office. We often spoke about our interests in writing and music. If we had trouble at work, we always sought each other out. That’s how we build our friendship until now. I am glad to have her as one of my bosom friends.
Online Bakery Inspired By Crafty Hobbies
Nisa founded Seal The Lips in February 2020 with her sister, Fina. Since childhood, they loved hobbies related to handicraft such as scrapbooking. That’s how she got the idea to open an online bakery. She also mentioned that her online bakery offers many different types of desserts. Their menu consists of egg tarts, customised cakes and cupcakes. They also provide event management services such as birthday party, baby shower and bridal shower for their customers.
Online Food Delivery That Caught My Attention

I am planning to throw a birthday party for my mum in the coming months. To make the occasion more special, I have ordered a customised cake from Nisa. What’s more? I can get her and her team to organise it for me. In my opinion, it is very convenient for me to be able to get two services under one roof.
Online Delivery Is The Convenient Way To Try Out New Food
Online food delivery is giving a lot of benefits to everyone. Customers get to pick a variety of food they like online. On the other hand, business owners too can reach out to a wider range of customers, thanks to food applications such as Foodpanda and GrabFood. I used to shop online for clothes and Korean albums. Now, I can add ordering food to my online shopping list because I enjoy trying out new menus that are unique especially for desserts.
