We pair snacks with your favourite TV shows
We've undertaken all the hardwork in finding just the right food to go with your fav TV shows/movies

When we were kids, a weekend with no plans feels like torture. As adults, it's like hitting jackpot. Only, the winnings last until the weekend/ holiday season is over then it's back to reality.

Work can seem like a foreign concept especially after zoning out for 48 hours in front of the TV. No stress. An email from the boss or client quickly fixes the problem.

It's normal to forget non-essential information.

Once you get the engine going- usually around Wed or Thurs or April- it's only a matter of days until the next no-plan weekend comes around.

Which begs a very important question: How can we maximise TV time? According to an in-depth survey (we asked our colleague Jun Hao, and a random stranger on reddit), Malaysians like to snack while watching their favourite shows. Our eyes may be glued but our mouths have to keep moving.

Never forget the snacks.

Certain snacks pair better with different shows. This is a fact of life, just like Gal Gadot was born to play Wonder Woman. The right snack has to go with the right program. You can't munch on Pringles Hot Pot Mala while watching Scifi Western, for example. It's just… not done.

Luckily for you, we've undertaken the all the hard work in finding just the right food to go with your favourite TV series/ Movie genre. It took some time (and about a container-load of edible inventory) but we went all the way so you can enjoy your MCO weekends.
