03.09.2009 | 後知後覺

瑣碎事情三則, 讓我覺得自己對於生活水準嘅提昇, 係幾咁後知後覺.. 原來呢個年代啲學生去「星巴克」豪嘆十幾蚊一杯ice-blended而唔係去mamak檔飲八角錢一杯teh-tarik, 唔係冇原因嘅~~
  • 上個星期搭的士去機場, 本來以為一百蚊有得找, 點知司機話「一個月前已經起價三成啦」.. 我係個冇乜大件事都唔會搭的士嘅人, 老實講, 如果佢要呃我, 我都係蒙在鼓裡..
  • 噚日晏晝去公司對面街買叉雞飯盒, 畀咗五蚊等找錢, 點知個老細話「啱呀, 係五蚊啊」.. 雖然我唔係經常出去食晏, 不過我覺得五蚊好似貴咗啲喎, 下次唔鬼幫襯..
  • 麥當當每隔幾個月就換上全新價目表, 價錢節節上昇, 次次令我望塵莫及.. 如果唔係最近有個RM5.95午餐優惠, 恐怕我從此都唔再捨得食麥當當..
three little incidents make me realised how hindsighted i have been towards the upgrade of our living standard and livestyle.. no wonder students nowadays enjoy their RM10+ a cup of ice-blended in starbucks rather than sipping a glass of 80sen teh-tarik in mamak stalls..
  • took a taxi to airport last week, thought RM100 should be more than enough to pay for the fare.. but only to realised from the driver that the taxi fare has increased 30% since a month ago.. well, i rarely take taxis in town, if the driver really wanted to cheat my money, i will still have nothing to say..
  • went to get a chicken rice takeaway for lunch yesterday, thought of getting my change after paying RM5 to the stall owner, but he just said: "correct, it's RM5".. though i seldom take lunch outside, but still i think RM5 is a bit expensive, i decided not to buy from him next time anyway..
  • McD increases their price almost after a few months, and each time i get so choked up with the new pricing.. if not because of their RM5.95 lunch promo recently, i think i will since then unwilling to spend so much for a fast food meal..

  1. Looking at the chart, I thought you were talking about the share market. LOL!

  2. So you paid RM130 for the airport taxi fare? What time was that?

    I've read that the cost of living in KL is higher than some other cities in the world and the sad thing is our salary adjustments do not commensurate with the inflation rate. How now?

    McD and KFC meals are no longer cheap so is chicken rice, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  3. Wow the cab fare was costly... where were you taking the from?

    Waaa Chicken Rice RM5? Drumstick meal ar? Normal Chicken Rice is only about RM4 or the most RM4.30 as I know of.

    McD always increase in price lah. Fast food price always increses. Yeah lah their promotion now is good.. especially this Puasa month too! hahaha.

  5. guess wut, I went to Mcd order 1 5.95 value meal, and another Ala Carte - Fillet-O-Fish, and it costs 5 something for just 1 burger. If I know it earlier, must well order 2 5.95 value meal.

  6. 上次我去big apple 的甜甜圈那裏也是驚訝他們總是在“不知不覺”換掉了價錢表~而且還是幾塊錢這樣漲的~所以會覺得錢不夠用~:(

  8. Hey McDs RM5.95 is rather misleading as that lunch deal isn't for across the board meals. Only for McChicken, Fillet O Fish set and another one which I forgot. RM5.95 is not valid for quarter pounder...which I discovered last week. The quarter pounder set costs around RM9.

    I thought RM100 is enuff for taxi fare to airport too. Hehhe..haven't been travelling for a long time oredi.

  9. still cheap still cheap comparatively.....seriously :) of course, if i can save anytime, i will save instead of squandering off :), but KL is still to me the BEST place to live :)

  10. Well...well...welcome to the real world right SK? These people are trying to squeeze more out from us. But what can we complain? Like us who want a raise every now and then...they too want to have their very own "raise". That's why all the fares has increased.

    In the end...everything will be up...up...UP....

  15. RM5 is indeed expensive. It's best for peeps to avoid eating at places that overcharge.

    I skip Macs. I'd rather have a Ramly cheaper burger anytime. And thank heavens for the new burger king outlet near my place. Much tastier than Macs.

  18. don't say jor, I know everything is affected by inflation, that's why I am working! T_T BTW,you so rich take RM100 taxi, just 3 months ago, the taxi driver told me RM50 from Bukit Jalil to LCCT I also don't want. :P

    ReplyDelete
  19. HappySurfer:
    haha, do you think share market is so ideally rising?? yes, i paid RM120 from my house to LCCT, but it was 4:45am, so there's midnight charge.. errmm, i think our cost of living is not high, still comparatively low.. but if you talk about our pay, then it's really low.. so that is why our cost of living is relatively high dollar-to-dollar.. :)

    ladyviral:
    i took the cab during midnight, so it's more expensive.. nope, mine was normal chicken and char siew rice, so RM5 is very expensive, i would expect like RM4-RM4.50 only.. hahaha, i'm actuall thrilled with the RM5.95 promo, and now even for dinner during the Ramadhan, at least i can savour McD for the moment.. hehehe :p

    uLi.佑莉:
    haiz, that's the problem.. our salary never go up because of the economy crisis.. but then everything just increase price because of the same reason.. isn't this sacarstic??!!

  20. Dreamer:
    hahaha, that was really pity of you!! i will now always check the price before i order.. see?? one burger is now more expensive than a bowl of rice..

    summer:
    對囉, 真的是無良奸商, 趁你不注意就殺你一頸血!! 所以現在買甚麼我都會先看價錢了.. Big Apple現在不是有promo嗎?? 六個plain的才RM6嘛..

    khengsiong:
    咪就係囉, 我見而家啲後生嘅, 洗錢真係唔駛本.. 其實又係嘅, 啲錢係父母畀架嘛.. 到佢哋以後自己賺錢自己洗嘅時候就知味道囉.. :p

  21. Mei Teng:
    haha, this is commercial gimmicks dear.. you didn't see the tiny little word "FROM" on top of the RM5.95?? haha.. that another one you've forgotten is McNuggets.. well, normally i just go for the cheapest one, i think the others are also expensive, considering i might have two meals at hawker stalls with that money.. i travel at 4:45am, so there's extra midnight charge, that's why RM100 is not enough.. :)

    manglish:
    of course KL is still a lot cheaper than Japan.. and guess you will miss KL very much right?? hahaha.. home is always the BEST place, i know you gotta say.. :p

    Tekkaus:
    yeah, and everything ended up going up, like no limit at all.. sometimes i really wonder, do those price increase deserve the increase?? most of the time, things are overpriced i think.. sad sad, and yet our pay didn't go on par with the inflation.. :(

  42. i only eat economical rice for my lunch de *sobs sobs*

  43. Unavoidable flow on effects of economic recession, it seems. Often more adverse effects for the little guys (like me) in society. The puzzling question is why do the prices often remain inflated even when a recession has finally receded? Maybe should start 'cooking & eating ourselves' more often [pun intended :)], as in 打包 packed lunches. But on the other hand, this would help put the food vendors and their suppliers out of business! A vicious cycle indeed. Fingers crossed on how long this recession is going to last! :(

    ReplyDelete
  44. It cost me RM60 to get to LCCT and I fainted. Now better sit bus, so cheap and shiok!! Food prices are getting over priced too and I started being conscious with the quality and price. SK Thamby, those mamak also started slaughtering diners lah.

  48. the problem is wealth distribution among citizens. Also our pay rise does not commensurate with the rise in cost of living...LEss investors come, Less GDP , Less salary for us. Somemore this country has an extremely bloated civil service to support !

  50. the happy go lucky one:
    hmmm, sometimes the economy rice could be quite expensive too.. especially when the boss mood isn't right.. :p

    Icy Fire:
    trust me, as long as the price has gone up for any single reason, it is not going to go down for even 1001 reasons.. haha, so i guess the best to do now is bring your own lunch boxes to work, and try your best to eat at home?? hahaha..

    Twilight Zone:
    Arumugam, RM60 you are already cursing there, i paid RM120 just from my house to LCCT leh.. yes, i think not only food are getting over priced, infact a lot of merchandise are getting over priced now, else how would they have up to 70% price slash during sales time, and still money to earn??

    Shell (貝殼):
    可能你住得靠近機場吧.. 我那天是半夜坐, 給了RM121.60.. 以前都還是RM95罷了, 一起就起了30%, 很多哩~~

    hahaha, at any time you spent less time in this lovely country and travel elsewhere compare to us rooted on this ground.. so shouldn't be any impact to you.. since you've enough money to go travelling around the world.. :p

    Ayie:
    haha, kind of outdate perhaps.. but the price always goes up but never comes down, that's the problem.. though the economy cruch is almost fading.. :(

    bluesoul:
    you are absolutely right!! not to say our salary increment does not go on par with the inflation, even not talking about the increases, our salary is already way below what we are supposed to have for a better living.. well, isn't this a land you love and also hate?? :)

    kenwooi:
    haha, but everytime you visit McD, you'd have your very own special "McMagnificent" (or whatever you named it) tower burger right?? so that once can be few times for us already.. :p

  55. foongpc:
    yes McD if not the RM5.95 promotion is rather expensive, so i only go during lunchtime if i wanted to eat McD.. 1U is near to airport, i took from Wangsa Maju to LCCT and it's 4:45am, that's why with the price increase and midnight charge it total up to RM120.. haiz, our salary increases, but too little to compare to the inflation, agree??
