    1.80 to 2.20? if not its 2.80...normal price for a chicken siew pow? I'm thinking cakes and confectionery prices now are in the category of "rediculous" VFM (value for money) or our money have shrunk so much..

    There are so many rich Malaysian nowadays.

    If not, why are prices going up, and then so many people can still afford it ?

    A plate of fried hokkien mee is going for rm 8 nowadays.

    Prices have gone through the roof but people are still buying them.

    1km from LOS, a border guard once politely asked me 'Tuan dari mana? pergi mana?" My reply "dari Subang Jaya pergi Laos"...his reply...in a sing song manner "Oh, subang jaya...orang kaya..." and waved me thru.
    See Sj residents 'orang kaya'...even known to border cops 470km away!

    SJ is seen as rich. It's just that 'money is never enough' for some people.

    Which other cities in Malaysia are seen as rich ?

    Not necessary, just avoid buying from shops that you think is overpriced and unreasonable value. I already practice it in my own way, just like "NOT ordering any drink when eating out", no need to buy "expensive" cakes, cook home, and lots of other ideas you can easily think of. Yes, like someone say "Life can be miserable" but sorry...your income may be far greater than mine, and your purchasing power is much greater..you can spend as you please. Just sympathise with my thoughts and plight will be very kind. I will not be part of some event or trend to business people who profiteer for no logical or reasonable reason and at whim.

    I had posted this apanama kutty bakery in empire before. Tupai had also posted numerous times repeatedly for years..

    Sad !! Still truck load of china pendatang continue to patron this apanama loaf like the bakery got free gold given to customers !! Worse, I have seen one pair of blur young china couple took photo in front of this kutty shop, like they are in front of Angelina bakery next to the Tuileries Gardens..


    p/s : why malayisa is so hot and humid even now at 8pm. I missed 12 deg C at 富良野…

    Tonight I'm having RM5.50 pack of 10 HOME MADE CURRY PUFFS for dinner.. its very very nice, a good fill for dinner with my own teh tarik. I'd rather some enterprising haus frau profit from me out of the Rm5.50 for some honest hard work to make, pack and self distribute. rather than I pay some illogical price inflated curry puff at some commercial confectionery for RM2 EACH that reflect a taste probably worth 50sen..or not even worth that..moreover entirely commercial mass produced ingredients that makes it taste so commercial types.
    I'm SWEARING TO GIVE UP BUYING FROM ANY COMMERCIAL CONFECTIONERY HEREON!...Its getting too expensive to indulge in their products. This is MY CRUSADE and MY FRUSTRATION!..I'm not here to tell nor appeal anyone to do likewise!..its your choice. Already some loaf of bread is SO BLADI EXPENSIVE!..Malaysia for you!!! (amongst numerous COL and price inflation of goods).

    I had boycotted, still boycotting and will continue to boycott whenever I can on ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that started and/or associated with this apanama kutty...

    The lists include
    - car (no drb-hicom al-bukary shits like merc, honda, etc),
    - airline (no mas and mas-enriched cronies),
    - bank (no dummo and dummo associates controlled local bank)
    - house (no sime darby property which is owned by khazanah which is owned by apanama cronies.. )
    - drinks (no permanis soft drinks, only beer)

    dan lain lain…
