Do you think things are getting riddiculous expensive?

Postby smurf » Tue Oct 25, 2011 1:41 pm

just have to rant!

went to market and things are getting so riddiculous expensive!!! :stompfeet: :stompfeet: :stompfeet:

and furthermore, because of the flood in bangkok, now food prices will be escalating!

so puzzled that nowadays, can still see students eating in food chain such as subway, KFC, etc. a meal in such restaurants can set you back by about $7 at least.

I already give up when I see pp buying atas kopi at $6 a pop at Starbucks without batting an eyelash. Very impressed.

luckily i have a habit of doing the grocery shopping myself. this really cut down on unnecessary expenses and most important, WE (not maids and some dhs, compare price of products.

If the price stay the same, then it's the portion that's reduced, either way consumers lose....

reminds me of ride bicycle in those kampong days ...

i missed the past in 1970s.... take public bus costs 5 cents per ticket. The ticket bus inspector board the bus, bellowed in a loud voice 'Ticket please!', then punch one hole in the middle of the ticket.
