My handsome boys

Took this photo at Tesco. I was about to put baju Melayu for my younger kid but the guard came and shoo-ed us away.

Eleh, releks lah, saya cuma tolong Tesco buat promosi jualan Hari Raya. Bukan curi barang, toksah panik lah.

Anyway….I think we are farked. It is very close to Hari Raya and yet, the shopping malls aren’t very crowded.

The other day, I bought four chicken and asked the guy what is the maximum number of pieces I can get out of a chicken. He told me 18 pieces out of each chicken and I was calculating if I have enough pieces of chicken as I need 70 pieces.

So, this Malay man probably took pity on me. He must be thinking, “Kesian…nyonya ni.”

He grumbled to me, “Ayam pun mahal sangat sekarang ni.”

Another mak cik joined in and all three of us were complaining how chicken used to cost barely RM5 per kilogramme. Now, one chicken costs at least RM12.

Who fault is this? Pak Lah, lah! Go and increase the petrol price secara mendadak and now, everyone suffers because of him. The oil price has gone down but our food prices can never go down again. I pity those families from the lower income. How to have a good Raya when the cost of foods are so expensive?

  1. Yea I was in the mall the other day and it was pretty quiet despite the nearness of Raya. Everything is so expensive and my heart goes out to the businesses as well as our Malaysian brethrens.

    Hope things will lift soon.

  2. hehe..yala…and then he go n blame anwar on the economy….eh..hello..siapa finance minister??
    seriously…alot of my malay friends of lower income are borrowing money left right centre….really kesian this raya….

  3. It was definitely a reckless price hike last month! 41% hike is crazy!

    Now the crude oil price stays below $100 for so long ledi, our petrol price hasn’t come down yet. Guess they have their asses to save now, so forgot about this issue already.

  7. yeah…i agree..nowadays semua Barang Naik….then how to balik kampung…minyak also naik? Hope fuel price will be reduce bfore raya…now oil price alrd reduce below 100 USD..

  8. Yalor, should not increse the oil price secara mendadak. Orang biasa like us also know this simple theory. Once other goods price increase, can never come down oredi.
    He should have hung on for a while or increase bit by bit. Now you use the money saved from subsidy to pour back to the people also cannot save the economy. Worst than LPPL. Sen wise, Ringgit foolish. Bodoh!
    P/S : I remember Anwar was saying, analyst predicted the oil price has peaked and will only go down. That was during the debate time.
