    I would agree if your plate is sumptuous with meat and other nice delicacies. Meat dishes are not cheap and never will be anywhere. I did mention roti canai at worst..ONE something..without drink. Plain water at 30sen standard nowadays.
    On another note, price of raw chicken have already gone up. Its 7.29/kg at Mydin right now. Not too long ago it was averaging 5.50. Tell me how many % increase? Its gone from silly to ridiculous COL in Malaysia now! Just like property prices..TYPICAL S to R level! Its already forewarned countless are not having enough savings for retirement..I may not live to see this happen but I cry for lots of people, including my 2 sons if they are not extremely careful.

    You people only talk of 20cts or 50 cts increased but they wallop by the millions.

    Yes, only GST can cure Malaysia problems.....now 6% ....at this rate 10% is also not enough to stop the bleeding.

    COOK AT HOME!.. period!
    Same tune I'll sing everyday!

    Its curry mee for me today, nevermind if its not as good as some shops.. I save money..not those who spend RM5-7 on some bowl there.
    Its been the norm to cook at home mostly now at the rate this bollehland is heading..I just have to look elsewhere!
    I've also stopped reading local food blogs that encourage or endorse where and what to eat!.. I'll look to youtube for recipes and those that I can cook.

    I read somewhere that GST is 23% in Greece against 6% in Boleh.

    Even at 23% GST, Greece is on the edge of bankruptcy.

    Something is very wrong in that developed country

    p/s Hungary is 27% & Sweden is 25%......life goes on

    Well, more than 20% of the workforce are public employees and with the generous social welfare, it is just a matter of time for them..

    The Greek have chosen a leftist as their latest President, hopefully he can play hard ball to the debtors in order to continue their usual lifestyle..

    Well, the leftist President chicken out. He called for a referendum and asked the Greeks to decide whether they want to stay in eurozone and accept the austerity measures or print their own money fand face more interesting life ahead..

    I seem to think (based on some interaction with them)..I only say those here are "contented and happy" meantime...period! Its futile to shake their confidence or make them batter any eyelids..life goes on as usual as if nothing happened. Maybe most of them part of that non popular vote sector.
    Meanwhile, you me and other commoners can make noise till the cows come home..

    Greece has one of the biggest oil tanker fleets in the world.... huge supertankers.... with oil price low and all that many of these tankers are anchored off Athens for fire sale... few of my friends from Indonesia went over to look see look see.... they said these tankers are lined up as far as your eyes can see.... and it will take a day to walk from first ship to the last... and that is if you just walk and not stop to inspect the ships...

    Forgot to give the name of this leftist President, Alexis Tsipras..

    Share with you guys how he won the heart of majority Greek and became the President...

    Mr. Tsipras told the Greeks :

    - Greeks are entitled for the same quality of life or even higher quality of life, just like those in the richer countries in the Eurozone. (of course, he did not tell the Greeks that they have to work equally hard and paid equally much taxes like others in the richer countries)

    - Countries in Eurozone are obliged to take care of Greece including lending money to the Greeks to sustain their good life. (His logic is why you asked Greece to join Eurozone in the 1st place)

    - It is ok if Greece cannot and do not repay the loan. (His logic is Greece is a poor country, too bad)

    - Greeks are people with high dignity and pride, it is wrong to accept the conditions and austerity measures set by the debtors (Of course, they won't talk about pride and dignity when they borrowed money from debtors)..

    A long time ago, I read Greeks like to borrow money for investment/others and after the loans were approved, the first time they did was to renovate their offices but buy big cars.

    Enjoy first.......their mentality is quite similar

    The whole world is living on debts. It is a matter of who has the higher debt.

    So as we approach the 100 days of GST......my post from 3 months back, as to look out for what will things be like '3 months down the road' is best portrayed in 'OutSyed's' post on his Blog y'day

    Quotes:

    "Ever since the GST in April, business at the Pusat Bandar Jengka has died.....The place is empty.".......

    "This is the peak season - Hari Raya is on the way but the showroom was more than half empty"......

    "saying vendors have been sending back the company’s magazines on a mass scale since April ― of the 30,000 magazine copies published, 28,000 copies were returned"......

    Good article on the state of GST affairs from ground zero......>>>Click Here To Read<<<
