There has been one thing about CNY that i've never understood.. Why is it that everyone can raise their prices with impunity? Where is the law enforcement on this matter?

Case in point, i went to a saloon to cut my hair yesterday and was charged rm 28..... thats twenty eight for a simple hair cut... no shampoo no nada just a cut..... i wouldn't even pay 28 bucks if the sultan of brunei were to cut my hair personally...

:mad:

For the last 10 years (eversince i paid for my own haircuts) comes CNY prices for haircuts will go up substantially. Since 2 years back, i will have my haircuts at place with fixed pricing. One such place would be Carrefour's basement level barber which charges fixed pricing all year round.

The Sultan of Brunei is also not hard up for your RM 28.00!! But somehow people are more than willing to pay more than RM 28.00 throughout the year for a girly barber haircut even without those valued added 'services.'

well for 28 buxs it better be good.... but i've never understood why malaysians don't do anything... it's always "tak kisah" lar.... i just do once... next year i cut earlier.... this encourages the them and they get even bolder... what next? maybe next time haircut costs rm 100...
what then? "tak kisah" also?

What is so different in haircut and the fare for the express buses during cny ? A trip from JB to Ipoh would most probably cost double . Take it or leave it . There are so many complain and what the shiit about enforcement being carried out...just brush it away ma.. No official complain lodge ..so cannot act .

aiyah, r u guys just born yesterday...... go fix price hair cut at carrefour basement 1 or giant usj 1 or whereever u go ask b4 they cut lah....

not only hair cut with price increase, meat , chicken, mushroom, and i would say almost everything with price increase after petrol price goes up.....with conjuction with CNY......so be a smart consumer loh.... u don't learn two same lesson to understand mah... one enough.

but i just can't figure out how can someone who charge RM288 to RM388 for a saloon professional hair cut with wash n ppl still think it worth it...

also during the new year period, pls do not eat at any chinese shops, they slaughter you. go for KFC, McD or mamak shops.......that's my sincere advise.

Two weeks before cny I make sure the whole family got for a haircut. As usual, they are charging you double. Let see 2 adults, 2 childrens and a baby cost me RM46.00.
