    The hawkers have no choice but to increase the price of noodles especially those using wheat flour-based noodles as price of wheat grain has spiralled upward from some RM1,300 per metric tonne in April 2007 to almost RM2,300 per metric tonne, thats a hefty 77% jump.

    The reason why the everyday consumers do not see the effect of price increase of wheat grains is because the price of All-Purpose Flour per kilo in the supermarket is still priced at RM1.35 per kilo. It should have been about RM2.50 per kilo but your very kind-hearted government had recently been paying a subsidy of RM1.10 for every kilo of All-Purpose Flour milled and sold by the millers, biggest being of course Federal Flour Mills.

    Wait till the General Elections is over - you will then long for your RM3.80 noodle because trust me, things are definitely going up after the General Election. You name it - cooking oil, flour, fuel, tolls, instant noodles, bread, etc. - will definitely go up!

    Singapore's PM Lee Hsien Loong warned yesterday that the island state will face 2008 with a high inflation rate of about 5% this year. I guess for us here in Bolehland, we are lucky the Government is telling us it is still only 1.7% - dream on guys....

    There is one hidden at the back of Orchard Hotel, of course along Orchard Rd., the original Tony Roma. Its at the road junction leading into Orange Grove Road, leading to Shangri-la Singapore. Cosy and warm place... nice but not so top end like Suntec City....

    They also serve Kilkenney on taps here lah...

    To us, observers, some of their demand might be illogical, but at time like this, don't expect the family members to behave like a monk! It's hard not to be responding emotionally especially when they are there doing nothing but hoping for news, thinking about the crisis very minutes and seconds. Personally, I think it is a bad decision to have these peoples doing nothing in the hotel except focusing on the disaster!
    I, too, accused the Chinese for the extra drama for extra money.... and I stand by my accusations. Call me sick?

    Of course its more expensive when you lease a car.... there's maintenance and repairs and when its due for service, I am sure you want a temporary replacement etc.... and leasing companies are in it for profit, not for fun.... if you are not happy about the price, then buy and maintain your own car... most American MNCs do not purchase cars outright for their senior management but lease them... and these expenses are tax-deductible.... and also such an arrangement does not tie the working capital down in unproductive assets.... these foreign companies can just pack up and go when there's trouble...

    there's really no issue here the way I look at it.... hey the leasing company also pays the annual road tax and insurance!!!
