Today's pandemic has made people invent their own way of earning by just staying at home. Our safety is our top priority but being safe without nothing to eat can't make us alive. The government has implemented series of lockdowns which made the poor became poorer and almost have nothing to eat for the reason that we all can't go out. Well, except for those who are frontliners. With this reason, some of us disobeyed the law and went out to find any means to bring food on the table. I can't blame them because hunger is so hard to neglect especially if we see kids crying because of rumbling stomach. Good for those families who have the abundance of life because they won't worry a lot compared to the poor ones. There is a support provide by the government which is giving of the relief goods but then those can't suffice the consumption for one week. Consequently, many poor families who again chose to risk their safety going out to earn just for the family. Who wouldn't?
These trying times transform people into the best they can be. Why did I say so? It's because we find ways to earn despite the limitations we have. The situation we are in doesn't allow us to go around and continue working as the virus spreads fast if we don't keep distance. Yes, it's a must to keep ourselves safe. But, as what some say, we won't die because of the Covid-19. We will die out of hunger.
The outside world is dangerous but staying inside of our home and starve is like killing ourselves softly.
Because us, humans adapt to every situation we are in, we searched for ways on how to earn. Some of us went on online business. As we can see, online business nowadays are top hits especially foods and snack. I have this cousin who sells kimchi online and her products are always sold-out. She will post pictures of her kimchi on Facebook but she made sure that the photos look beautiful and can make the customer's mouth water. Personally, I was also convinced to buy because of how it looked like in the photos. Moreover, editing and other enhancing technique must be done when you are selling online because the customers will only see the photos.
After my cousin posted the photos, customers will reach out to her through commenting on the posts or through direct message and then she will deliver the kimchi to the buyers' place. I can tell that she has gain something big on it since her kimchi was always a hit to the people in here. Of course, my cousin also followed safety protocols when she made and delivered the kimchi.
I think this pandemic has made the people in our place to get hungry and crave for something cold and fried. In our town, when the quarantine was lifted, the municipal mayor has given the locals place/stalls for them to have a business wherein they have to pay $1.00 per day as rent. This is not a big deal since foods and snacks there are always sold-out as well. We call this place the Felicity Dream Square. Each stall has different food, snacks, and drinks to offer. The common goods there are barbecues, fried food, snacks like pizza, hamburger, fries, chips. They also have fruit shakes, milk teas, siomai, and other refreshing drinks. Beers are allowed too but the customers should ensure to drink moderately for there are policemen guarding the surrounding. Every Friday, there will be live band as well making the place livelier with different night lights. No need to worry for the people who will go there can't go through if they are not wearing mask and not keeping the proper distancing. I have been there once and I plan to visit again with friends.
Some of my friends are also selling trendy clothes online which is also a good business. Well, we have a lot of physical stores here but I think online selling is way better since most of the people prefer buying online and just wait for the item to be delivered. I have my neighbor here whose having an online business of ukay-ukay (preloved clothes). She handpicks everything she sells that's why the quality is nice. Since it's preloved, she will fix everything that needs fixing like missing buttons and loose threads. After that, she will have it in laundry to clean the clothes and iron them to look presentable and ready to wear. Then, she will wear it or place the clothes in the mannequin stand so the clothes will have their perfect fit, ready to be captured.
When editing is done, she will post it on her Facebook Page and everything will be sold-out within the day. Her clothes are also affordable that's why the customers love to buy.
I realized that these things are the new normal for we can't go back to normal. Instead of lurking in the corner and waiting for the pandemic to end, let's use our creativity and resourcefulness to sustain our needs. There are a lot of ways to earn only if we are willing and industrious. In order for us to not break in the situation, let's learn how to bend.
Note: Our safety is our top priority so don't forget to have enough rest daily and eat healthy foods. Let's be clean all the time. Don't forget to wear face mask and sanitize hands.
Thank you so much guys for reading! You've been so kind to me since day one.
