Like that u still think Singporeans should
not take to the street to express their angers
and frustrations at the pap policies of catering
and looking after the interests of the rich and

Everywhere you go for lunch or dinner, prices all gone up
leh.......even ordering a new set of keys from neighbouring hardware
shop formerly it was $1per key.....nowwwwww.$1.50......a 50%
increase , after the 2% GST increase.......
Are our retailors profiteering?
A duplicate key now cost $2.00 in my neighbourhood....a 100%
Equally bad is the cost of ESSENTIAL food stuff. I just visited
Sheng Siong and found that :
A can of Maling luncheon meat (my favourate for sandwich fillings)
now cost $2.50 (old price...$1.20)
A killo of local fish (Seklar) now cost $5.50 (old price - $2.50)
One pineapple (Malaysian) now cost $2.90 (old price - $1.50)
A killo of small size prawn now cost $12.00 (old price -$6.50)
A loaf of house brand bread $1.30 (old price $1.00)
Most prices of food stuff have increase from 30% to over 100%.
How much have the wages of the poor workers has increased....3% ?
Effectively, their small income can buy only half the amount of food
needed by them...
They would go hungry soon...very real possibilities for the many
