Filipinos are known to be one of the most resilient people in the world. With our sunny dispositions and amazing problem-solving skills, there’s no problem that’s too big or too small for us!
With how the COVID-19 pandemic has developed, a number of Filipinos have lost the ability to report to work, or are now working from home.
This, in turn, gave people more free time to do what they’ve always wanted to do, and make money in the process.
Today, we’re listing the top 8 online businesses that have made waves on social media this quarantine period!
1.) Baked Sushi
It’s no secret that everyone has been raring to go out and explore the world ever since we all started to stay indoors for our safety. Baked sushi makes it easier for people to imagine that they’re in the land of the rising sun, bringing flavors that are authentically Japanese mixed in with Filipino flair!
A whole variety of baked sushi is currently available in the market, from the traditional salmon bake to even the more unconventional keto-friendly version of this indulgent fusion treat. The possibilities of flavor combinations for baked sushi are endless, making it a solid favorite!
2.) Flavored Pandesal
Have you been craving for something more Filipino, but also is innovative enough to keep you interested? A number of people have picked up baking as a hobby this quarantine, and have innovated from old-fashioned Pandesal to adding flavors and fillings to the crowd favorite breakfast staple! With variants ranging from the ever-popular Ube Keso to the more out-there flavors like Matcha-filled, there’s a flavored Pandesal for everyone.
This treat is not only perfect for starting your work mornings but is also a great way to end your meals. Satisfy your sweet tooth craving with this trending treat!
3.) Frozen Hotpot Kits
With food being one of the most popular bonding activities in the country, it has become harder for families to enjoy the feeling of coming together to eat without having to stress about what they’re going to cook. Thankfully enough, frozen hotpot kits have come into existence! Just pop the broth, set the vegetables, and dip your choice of meat and you’ve got your recipe to an enjoyable meal with the whole family.
These kits come in a ton of variants, like Japanese Shabu Shabu or Chinese Mala Hot Pot, for those who want an interesting spicy twist to their meals. Eating alone? Not to worry. There are kits that are designed for just one person to enjoy!
4.) Dried Flowers
While the Plant Parent trend has been going on for a long time, people with green thumbs (and a lack thereof) have finally found a way to incorporate plants into their home décor, but to also not have to be bothered to take care of actual live plants. Dried flowers are slowly increasing in trend, making even those who easily kill their little green babies capable of joining in on the plant parent trend!
Coming in all shapes and sizes, dried flowers are a cost-effective way of keeping your houses decorated to be one with nature while also keeping your home free from potential pollen allergies and insects that might live on your plants.
5.) Scented Candles
A big part of the self-care movement is the incorporation of aromatherapy into your daily life. People have started formulating their own signature blend of relaxation fragrances to keep your mind and body in peak form while in these uncertain times. Scented candles and room mists are shooting up in popularity as they help ease anxiety and leaves your room smelling just the way you like it.
These candles come in a plethora of sizes and designs. Some even come with dried flowers and gold leaves to match your interior. With the fully customizable intensity of smells and variants to help keep your productivity juices going, scented candles are truly a solid trend this quarantine.
6.) Sourdough Starters
Foodies who miss the taste of their favorite bread have started to experiment with their own bakes, even giving names to their activated sourdough starters. These low maintenance pets, made out of activated yeast, are a fun way of keeping you and the little ones entertained while indoors.
You can keep them alive for as long as you want or you could turn them into a beautiful loaf of sour bread for your family to enjoy, perfect with cream cheese! Some bakers even take it to the next level, cutting intricate patterns onto the surface of the dough to make art once it comes into its full baked glory.
7.) DIY Hair Dye Kits
Being stuck at home with no school or work rules to follow has given everyone the freedom to rock the hairstyle they’ve always wanted. A lot of people have now hopped back into the granny hair trend, and are trying for themselves if they can finally achieve turning their hair silver. Thankfully, vegan dyes and bleach for starting rainbow heads are now available for sale from a variety of sellers. Some of them even offer aftercare, such as purple shampoo and conditioner, to keep your mane in its full silver starlight glory.
The fun doesn’t stop with just silver, though. Sellers also offer other colors, like fiery red and navy blue. Unlike traditional hair dyes, vegan hair dyes don’t damage your hair as much as their chemical counterparts- making it a little less tedious to take care of your crowning glory.
8.) Resistance Bands
Finding yourself missing the gym? A number of gym enthusiasts have resorted to using new technology to save themselves from having to carry gallons of water as dumbbell replacements. With names like Chloe Ting headlining the self-improvement scene of the population, resistance bands have become a popular must-have fitness item for anyone who wants to build their core muscles and emerge from this quarantine with rock-hard abs.
Resistance bands come in different weight-equivalents to suit your workout regime. From beginners to more seasoned gym gurus, resistance bands might be your next best investment!
