Take A Hike

Yesterday, most of us experienced the massive traffic jams in Kuala Lumpur due to the recent announcement of fuel price hike. I don't want to elaborate on the road conditions that day nor on the fuel price.

However I would like to share on my total bill for dinner that night at a mamak outlet. Its only been a few hours since the price hike announced and food prices suddenly went up also. The tandoori chicken which I ate rose RM 1 from RM 5.50 to RM 6.50 and Beehun Sup remains at RM 4.50 even though ordered without egg. When complained, the mamak only says that with or without egg it remains the same.

Recently I've been careful with my expenses and finding cheaper substitutes for my needs and wants. Example; instead of eating at the mall's food court after a movie and drink coffee at Starbucks, we go for a cheaper venue such as mamak, SS2 etc. But if the food court has reasonably priced food items, we usually resort to eating there.

Back to the mamak, I will never go there anymore. Worse case, I'll cook my dinner at home; it's fresher and more delicious even though its only baked beans and eggs. I wonder how will the current weak government control such act and inflation. Sight* I'd better stock up food to cook.
