We were told of the GST years ago, from 0 to 3%, then 5% and now 7% on the coming July. Now, milk – fresh, evaporated and condensed – has cost more in recent weeks due to global demand, increases between 10 to 55 cents.
Today, when I went to the venting drinking machine during break time of my class, surprisingly I realized there are increases of price for all can drinks too. From $0.90 to $1.20, from $1.20 to $1.50, almost 30% increased. My goodness, why they always like to in-line with our salary increment period? No wonder I never realize the good feel of my increment salary, cos it was always ‘eaten up’ by all increases of our living costs.
Now I begin to worry, what’s next for the increase? Maybe coffee and tea with milk?
