Someone from the gomen(government) said following the increase of power tariff, the gomen would only expect a 0.27 per cent inflation hike, i said 骗人的...or you bluff one.
I went for my regular nasi melayu store to wallop my favorite curry chicken with another side dish of one small portion of vegetable, usually this Malay guy would charge me only RM 3.50 but yesterday it was RM4.20 and that is 20 per cent increase lo,, mind you, mind you.
I kind of protested to this Malay guy by saying,"Bang, bang, mahal lah (bro, expensive lah)" Jokingly he shot back at me, telling me to follow him to the market and to check for myself of this increase and that increase scenario.
It is very funny,every time the gomen increase a little here and there, they would come out in the press telling the people that the gomen would come down hard on those traders who simply increase price but then again, like my nasi Melayu seller lamented, no choice lah, he increased, i have to increase and you have to pay for the increase.
I overheard one lady telling another friend this in the coffee shop the other day, she was saying," He thinks (the husband) by giving me RM800 a month is so great ka? I give him RM1000 and get him to do like what he wants me to do,then only he knows how difficult"
P/S : Money is indeed to tight to mention
