Corona Part 8: Here’s how to make your favourite fast food at home

Fast food & exercise: two sides of the same coin during lockdown

Like the Fast & the Furious franchise, I really hope there won’t be a corona part 9 update. Let’s hope the phased approach of re-opening the economy comes into play and I can start a new Level 4 Corona update.

How to make your favourite fast food at home

As lockdown continues, a lot of people are craving fast food. People have been asking for recipes and trying to recreate their own.

Spur announced it won’t open until much later (don’t ever knock Spur – their chips and that pink sauce are amazing) “Other than a few of the group’s Rocomamas burger joints, all Spur and Panarottis restaurants will remain closed as long as they face restrictions on the number of customers and when they can sell booze.”

McDonald’s UK shared their recipe for their egg McMuffin. I personally have never had one, but my bf assures me they are delicious.

Burger King shared the recipe for the Whopper in an easy to follow format in that you know the ingredients but not the ratios.

And RocoMamas made it even simpler…

And if you’re thirsty, here’s how it is done during lockdown.

Exercising in a time of Corona

So I’ve been doing yoga but haven’t posted about it on social media. Do these workouts even count? The short answer is a hard no.

There are some awesome online workouts that you can do (check here and here) but most go something like this:


The biggest puzzle in the world (coz size really does matter)

Puzzles have become quite popular. I have a puzzle but haven’t whipped it out yet. I dismantled all my Lego so it seems like I have new Lego that I get to rebuild,  but may get cracking on a puzzle this weekend.

Kodak has released the world’s largest puzzle which consists of 51 300 pieces and measures 8.7m by 1.9m once completed. The puzzle consists of 27 smaller ones that showcase the wonders of the world. You can put them together to create a mega puzzle. Currently available on Amazon for US$440 (R8 435).

You’d need a Dwight-mega-desk sized table to build this puzzle.

Online concerts are a thing

I’ve really enjoyed watching Schalk Bezuidenhout live. For only R50 you get to watch a show. I got my ticket today for a Corne & Twakkie show next week (also only R50 and OMG haven’t seen them in ages).

Global Citizen has had a series of shows as part of their One World: Together at Home series. Taylor Swift did a cool song that gave me all the feels – I had hit that moment in lockdown.

And now Travis Scott is performing in Fortnite. His Astronomical tour started yesterday and there are limited spots available. He is the second artist to do this, the first was Marshmellow.
