Ist of day of March

Two months has passed, so whats up Malaysia???

PM says the economy is better or is it getting better? Well lets hope for the best. However with the new ruling by LKIM (Lembaga Kemajuan Ikan Malaysia), with regards to the boxes for the fish, we might be in trouble with higher cost of fish. This way relayed to me yesterday by my fish monger at the Klang Market. FOMCA says lets boikot from buying fish if the price goes way up.

Other than fish, did anyone realised that prices of drinks had gone up. Two insident that occured to me personally, a 'Teh Tarik' that usually cost RM1.50 is supposed to have gone up to RM1.70 at a Mamak Restauran in Shah Alam t while a 'Teh Ais Limau' is supposed to be RM1.20 up from RM1.00 at the stall in Klang Market. After complaining, they let me pay the old price for that order, not sure if it stays up or unlucky to unsuspecting customers.

Now ... with sugar up 20 sen per kg, an increase of that amount per RM is equivalent to 20% increase. If that is the quantum, I'll start to not drink outside and bring refreshment from home. If all Malaysian does the same, its good for the health anyway, and you save money anyway.

What will it do to the economy ... the multiplier effect could be devastating. Than again what is 20 sen isn't it???

Do the math ...
