Update 15.30: For the safety and security of passengers, the MRT Blue Line and MRT Purple Line will be temporarily closed. When the situation resume to normal, we will resume service as soon as possible.

I stocked up on freezer foods, and the basics to last another month should it become necessary.  Luckily Rama 4 is a little out of the way and the local markets and stores have the fruits and veggies I may need.
