Actually slightly more than two years since its implementation on 1 Apr 2015.

It has affected our cost of living, some more than others. In a case of bad timing, our Ringgit started to slide just as GST was implemented. And to compound the problem we have the oil price plummeting and traders taking advantage to increase prices whether justified or not.

This is a triple whammy for sure.

I have calculated that had the Ringgit remain at 3.30 to the USD many things can be cheaper with GST.

In reality it is not GST but the depreciation of the Ringgit that did the damage.
