2010 has started with a bad note,
20sens hike in sugar, thats a small matter surely..

But the fact is, its bound to happen that the cost of everything pertaining to sugar will spiral up in leaps and bounds. Those with sweet tooth will have to pump out more for teh tariK, kuih, soft drinks, confectionary etc etc

Thats something unfortunate we have to brace.
Our Gomen is no help i can say that.

Now what other bad news is forth coming for this year?

If not mistaken, Sentinel had provided hints in the past.
I missing him and his interesting insights already. Wish he still here among us. :(

Just brace up for more nonsense and catch all unprepared.

dontink he coming back anytime soon lah...got a number of REAL loser-forummers in usj.com.my very jealous of senti's postings lah...and these losers take potshots at the more 'alive' forummers esp. sentinel. HAHAHAHHAH! LOSER!

Then the mod many a time also blursotong acted on the 'Effect' than address the 'Cause'!:o Creating more whip lashes and counter-productive responses, from the wronglybanana'd victim/s. But I digress.


So, back to the sugared-high news. Everyone can now expect to pay maybe 10sen more for his fave cup Teh tarik, kopi-O, Teh-Si or drinks with refined white sugar contend lah...

This 20sen increased in sugar will bring lotsa smiles to the profiteering coffeeshop owners!

I am drinking beer, wine and spirits only! HAHAHHAHAH!

Speaking about teh tarik, I've observed different prices at many Klang Valley places and some are just rediculous. Rm1.50 at a ROADSIDE, beside smelly drain, unsure whether licensed or not, its MORE than the price of a cuppa at some clean well managed mamak restaurant that likely pays high shop rental. Oh well, what have I said time and again, Land of opportunists, NOT opportunity.

I already heard rumours that the Apollo restaurant boss is thinking about raising the prices of drinks again - already the most expensive in SJ/USJ for a coffeeshop. :(

I heard bowl of CHENDOL have risen 10sen... there you are..OPPORTUNISTS AT IT!
As long as demand is high...this is going to be the trend. Stop eating out?...I don't think most will obey.

BREAD price IS ALSO UP!. RM2.10 to 2.30, confirmed at Speed99 Taipan minimart earlier.
I anticipate milk products to rise, especially sweetened condensed milk. Yes!, many of you folks may not be buying this but millions of other rakyat and coffeeshops, kopitiams, restaurants, mamak eateries, stalls ARE!

Happy New Year c/w goods price inflation!..
I'm not at all happy about so called "happy new year"... anticipate for more shockers (not shiokers) in due course!

The price of sugar gone up by 20 sen a kilo, a loaf of bread increased by 20 sen too. Do the bakers put a kilo of sugar into a loaf of bread?

If the condense milk manufactures dont hike up the price there should be no reason for increase of beverages, but knowing very well of our unscrupulous restaurants they are apt to take advantage..There is a solution,boycott their drinks by all means.

We're ALL TOO FEW to make any boycott successful lah!. I can suggest EVERYONE OR ANYONE here to boycott this and that.. IT DOESN'T WORK!.
Every minute hundreds or thousands of rakyat ARE going to pay an inflated price somewhere in this land. The demand is always there and people are NOT going to stop eating out.

I cant deny what you said, malaysians dont worry about the few cents.Why, most of them dont even ask for the breakdowm of their bill, so the rest of us are just suckers.

this is my #1 philosophy:

hahaha, but I happen to frequent places that haven't raised prices arising from circumstance nor opportunity. At least BS Lee DOES respect them, the least I could offer to these vendors.

Firefox:.. We have to look at it realistically lah!.. most issues pertaining to price inflation to be countered by the rakyat must be a nationwide effort. Anything short of this comes down to nothing.
Another simple case of making the gahmen tremble in its pants. DON'T BUY ANY NEW CAR for next 2-3 years.. Alright 2 years?... Anyone game for this?

this is the impact of living in a dream world where prices are controlled.
any changes in prices of basic items, the artificial world get a shake.

everything just go up........except gaji because gaji is linked to the basket of goods which is artificially made low.

semua kena the BIG screw........

Govt reduce the subsidy for white bread as well. I always buy wholemeal bread so the price remain the same.

I'd place my bets it'll be within this half year, there's going to be some revision of some sort and its GOING TO HURT! Fuel price is the ONE BIG issue that will domino effect this economy. Just be prepared for anything lah!.

What do you think I've been eating quite often at a nearby mamak for dinner.
Its plain tosai or rava tosai with air suam. YES, AIR SUAM IS NOW NOT FREE. DUA PULUH SEN!.. but I know its filtered water, EXCELLENT SERVICE with SMILING FRIENDLY FACES of waiters n staff there, lastly the tosai and coconut chutney is delicious there. RM4.00 total for both me and other half.
Ok.. Goto to Restaurant Victory at USJ9 Subang Business Center and order a chicken of beef MURTABAK for RM7 (SEVEN) NETT!.. Boleh cukup makan kenyang untuk DUA ORANG!.. TAR PAU HOME LAH... air bikin sendiri lah!

Rice is now expensive too, forget the subsidized rice, guess who's buying, the restaurants and foreign labor (as observed)...BY THE BAGS! sekali dua..SEMUA DISAPU!..

All this subsidies are not doing the nation any good in the long run. It's turned into opium for the masses. Just reduce all the subsidies in stages. No point living in a 'false' economy..

Bear in mind that the nation is living off its oil reserve. When that runs out, the subsidies will definitely cease to continue. better to do away with it gradually from now...

I only see one resolve when the inevitable happens. More taxes to keep up the expenses of current policies that can't be done away with. Just watch!
Rakyat will become poorer and purchasing power can be drastically reduced thats all!..UNLESS you find a way to be very wealthy when it comes like a tsunami! Your EPF will be of little help, don't bank on it too much.

I wish Sentinel were still around, do miss his timely hints..
Regret some of you don't like him for any silly reason and he's no more here.
