Chapter 5: Hoarding Goods on a Large Scale 5.2
As technology was not yet so advanced, wearing this type of armor would be very cumbersome, greatly affecting speed and movement.
However, it was advantageous in terms of safety, as it would be difficult for early zombie attacks to break through the armor.
Coupled with an electric baton, hehe.
This armor could only be used in places with fewer zombies.
If there were too many zombies, one would be surrounded and unable to escape, leading to disastrous consequences.
As the armor was not yet available, Chen Luo, who had some free time, bought a hundred large-capacity phones and copied movies, novels, and learning materials into them.
After the apocalypse, there was no internet or signal available, but the phones could still be used as long as they had power.
In order to ensure this, Chen Luo also purchased ten diesel generators and a batch of solar panels.
He bought ten generators just in case some of them broke down.
If he had a phone with unlimited battery and internet access, Chen Luo believed that he could have lived another 10-20 years in his previous life.
Chen Luo also purchased a significant amount of diesel fuel to power the generators. With the fuel, he could also use air conditioning.
He gradually bought a batch of walkie-talkies and biological supplies such as rice cookers, ovens, microwaves, and iron pots.
As for medicines, Chen Luo only purchased medications for treating wounds and preventing inflammation, as he did not expect to need any other types of medicine.
In addition, Chen Luo hired a cooking teacher to improve his culinary skills.
After the apocalypse, what frustrated Chen Luo the most was what?
Although Chen Luo was able to find ingredients, the food he cooked was still unappetizing and difficult to swallow. If it wasn’t for survival, he wouldn’t want to eat it.
Once, Chen Luo and Su Dazhu found three potatoes and wanted to make shredded potato stir-fry. But who knew how to shred them? Chen Luo and Su Dazhu looked at each other helplessly.
In the end, they had to bake the potatoes with tears in their eyes, but ended up burning them.
Now that Chen Luo had so many resources, he was worried that he wouldn’t be able to utilize them if he didn’t have the cooking skills. So, he spent a large sum of money – 50,000 yuan per month – to hire a chef.
The chef’s name was Ma Yu, a 25-year-old woman with a mature and dignified appearance. Although she wasn’t drop-dead gorgeous, she was quite attractive and had a great figure.
After trying out the food cooked by Ma Yu, Chen Luo was impressed by her cooking skills which were even better than those of the five-star hotels.
At first, Ma Yu was worried about the high salary and whether her employer would have any ulterior motives.
However, upon meeting Chen Luo in person, she felt relieved as she thought that with his conditions, he could easily attract many beautiful girls and wouldn’t need to put any effort into impressing anyone.
At this moment, Chen Luo is studying.
“Today, I’ll teach you how to make sweet and sour pork ribs.”
“First, use cold water to blanch the pork ribs and remove the blood foam.”
“Then, pour in some oil that doesn’t cost anything.”
Chen Luo’s face turned red, where can you find oil that doesn’t cost anything?
During his first lesson, Chen Luo was afraid of not having enough oil. While the chef went to the bathroom, Chen Luo poured half a pot of oil into the pan.
When the chef returned, she was shocked and asked, “Does your family have free oil? Why did you pour so much?”
Seeing that Chen Luo had a good character, Ma Yu made the joke about the oil.
Even with Ma Yu’s hands-on teaching, the dishes Chen Luo made were incomparable to Ma Yu’s in taste.
If it weren’t for Ma Yu’s on-site guidance, the dishes Chen Luo attempted to make were not even edible by dogs, let alone people.
King: “I have no grudge against my master, so why did he poison me?”
Chen Luo clenched his fists, thinking to himself, “I am not cut out for cooking.”
He then turned his gaze to Ma Yu and thought, she has good cooking skills, I am optimistic about her.
If you can’t do it yourself, then find a great chef, Ma Yu’s cooking skills are really NICE.
Chen Luo and Ma Yu didn’t know each other at all in their previous life. It’s not clear whether Ma Yu will become a zombie after the end of the world. They could only leave it to fate.
