24.11.2011 | 錢不夠用

[#1268] 係唔係受最近泰國水災嘅影響, 搞到啲米起晒價?? 事關最近去買包叉雞飯, 平時RM5依家起價到RM6!! 雜菜飯更加誇張, 由平時RM5起價到RM7, 一肉兩菜一間好up-dup嘅茶室咋噃?? 真係趁火打劫..

講到呢度真係不得不提, 最近啲嘢真係貴到離晒譜, 樣樣都嗌起價, 定係我對物品嘅標價仲停留喺數年前?? 尤其係嗰啲眾人趨之若騖(不過真係平平無奇)嘅甜品/飲品/糕點/麵包之類, 一小份已經足夠貧窮人家一家五口一日三餐喇!!

[後記] 最令人發指係: Brickfields一間叫做麗X嘅茶室, 一包寡得唔再寡嘅青檸水竟然叫價RM2!! 嘩, 你以為自己真係麗都大賓館間咖啡廳咩?? 唔好去搶??!! 自此以後打入黑名單~~
[#1268] was it the influence of the recent thai flood that there's a sharp hike in the price of rice?? cos recently i bought char-siew chicken rice, was charged RM6 instead of RM5.. and worse is the economy rice, charged RM7 instead of RM5 for just 1 meat and 2 vegetables at a very run-down coffee shop!! that's looting a burning house yeah??

right up till here, i just can't stop myself from complaining that things are getting so very expensive today, everything's yelling to increase price, or is it just me that stay with the price perceptions from few years back?? especially those desserts, drinks and confectioneries that are made popular by bandwagon effect (but nothing special indeed), just a little portion of that can already feed a poor family of 5 for three meals in a day!!

[P/S] what most ridiculous was a packet of very plain lime water i bought from a coffee shop named L*do in Brickfields, and was charged RM2 for that!! what?? they think they are the posh coffee shop in the high class Lido Hotel?? that's just as good as robbing our money don't you think?? into my blacklist since then~~

  7. Ya la, using parents' money back then, I was lacking of calculating. When money not enough, either eat maggi mee everyday or thick face ask from papa again.

  13. Wah RM7 for economy rice? Where did you buy it from? Come to the coffee shop near my place.. only RM4.50 usually for 2 vege and 1 meat! :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wah RM7.00 for buffet economy rice!!! Oh my goodness RM5.00 Bananaz also complaining at my place. See there are a few choices of coffee shops and have been comparing prices lately too. There is this shop in particular the most expensive. Quite standard for me all the time, small rice and 3 veges no meat its RM5.00 where the other shops charge between RM4.20 to RM4.50. Not satisfied went again with two veges no meat its RM4.50 and I asked why so expensive? He said lots of veges woh. OK Bananaz let him go one horse this time.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Would go again next time to the same expensive shop maybe next week with only one vege to see how much he charges and the following brunch next time would be small rice with only curry kuah to see what is the price. *silent protest* haha.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Had economy 'buffet' lunch in Taman Miharja the other day, small rice and two veges paid RM2.80. Woh so cheap one?

    ReplyDelete
  17. economic rice that charge me more than rm5 for vegetable and rice only will get blacklisted by me immediately. that's why i dislike to patronize most chinese economic rice stalls - the indian rice stalls charge way reasonable than that, with bigger portion and yummier!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I agree with kyh. Better go to indian/mamak place. Rice so much on the plate, plus ketam and vege, they only charge me RM4.50 (the one near my house la)

    ReplyDelete
  19. some stalls or restaurants are probably taking advantage of the disaster happening in Thai... maybe you should try the local Malaysian rice which should be cheaper. Here, for one kilo of very good quality of rice it costs RM3. It's local.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Daylight robberies... RM7.00 for economy rice? But anyway I don't eat economy rice for a long long time already. My office 3 mins drive only from home. Prepare my lunch in the morning before go to work, lunch come back eat with son.

    P/S The football players on my cupcake is store brought plastic figure. Raining everyday otherwise I would have make my own using sugar paste.

  22. What? 1 meat 2 vegetable RM7? I think in Malacca...the most RM3.50. :/

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well...it is the brand that sells right? That's why the prices have keep on increasing... :/

    ReplyDelete
  24. I guess the price of lime has increased as well? :p

    ReplyDelete
  25. In Malacca everything is still relatively reasonable. I hope we won't be catching up with KL anytime soon. :(

  26. I can indeed feel the strain of inflation as well. Same amount of vitamin M lasts much lesser number of days nowadays.

  30. there's a couple of coffee shops just behind berjaya times square also charge really exorbitant rates. I think it's getting tougher living in KL, or Malaysia for that matter.. sigh

    ReplyDelete
  31. The name should be changed from 'economy' rice to one that doesn't mislead, eh? RM7 is too much for that plate of rice unless you picked up some huge prawns. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  32. Everything has gone up except the salary that doesn't commensurate with the inflationary rate. *Sigh..*

    ReplyDelete

  49. I think the flooding did affect our market as well. The wet market vendors told everyone that chilly and some vegies shot up lo...

    ReplyDelete
  50. Some outlets which were not affected just jumped the band wagon. This is the ugly world of survival.

  53. 係吖,家阵喺外边用餐边度仲有三蚊鸡一碟饭噃?真係食米唔知米贵,想省米饭钱,睇嚟都要自己亲自下厨煮住家菜囉!哈哈哈~~~

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yes everything going up, up and up except our income!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I try not to order drinks at restaurant if at all possible. They are too expensive and also provide the restaurant with the biggest profit margin!

    ReplyDelete
  56. It's never worth your money ordering water in restaurants. My clean, filtered water from home is so much cheaper!
