    As expected, our daily necessities and goods are going to go up in prices....

    For a start its the ciggarette...

    Used to be RM10.20 per 20 sticks pack

    Today its RM10.50 an increase of RM0.30 sen :smokin:

    Kindly post items or goods that increase in price in future...

    Many more items may follow suit...:thefinger:

    And in this thread we can see what are the things that increased, which in turn eroded into our spending budget and affect our daily life.:mad:

    Thanking everyone in advance....:wavey:

    People say increase cigarette price is to discourage smoking. That is bullshit. Increase price is to make more profit. If really want to discourage smoking, then do it like Singapore. No smoking in bars, clubs, and only a small area for smoking in open area. Make it difficult and challenging to smoke, then that will discourage and reduce smoking.

    So, yeah. Hehe. And stupid people say GST won't effect them, no double tax. If GST kick in, you go Pelita eat Nasi Kandar also pay tax.

    I don't know, I don't smoke. Ask those guys who can't stop smoking? I know people who rather spend money to smoke than to eat.

    As a family man, the formula baby milk and diapers increase a lot.
    Including the groceries such as sardins, milo, cooking oil, rice and etc.
    Kindergarten fees also went up due to this matters.

    GST implementation will hit the consumer hard.
    The seller/hypermarket/businessman will use this importunity to divert this money for themselves.

    How many type of tax to be implement in Malaysia. Basically they covered all.
    Now really want to squeeze till the last drop.
    Car expenses have to reduce and have to work harder.

    It's x a necessity...but it's a form of goods..that being said a big percentage r smokers (x sure d actual numbers but look around u..I wld say 8 of 10 I see do smoke)..

    Wanna discourage smoking start from d root..y have ciggy factories or importers etc?same wiz alcohol..tell u y...bcoz it's a GOLD mine..n its sort of a way of life n d govt sees it...increase price = increase tax = increase revenue means more profits..

    Y do u think one of d son's of a former PM holds a stake in a beer manufacturing company??n another son of another former PM holds a stake in a ciggy factory??

    fazidk,
    Base on my opinion, 1M product doesn't help the people much.
    It seems their perspective it to reduce quality in order to fill the market.
    Their price not much different compare to normal/usual brand.
    Try to save but at the end we spend more then it should.

    Insyallah, new baby coming & will add the number of the family.
    I've to slow down the whatever car related at the moment.

    Some car enthusiast also reducing their budget due to this scenario.
    They taking cheaper option rather than buying good product.
    In June, car parts etc increased approximately 10-20% overall due to several reason.

    Talk about a sudden increase in cigarettes. Luckily I was able to grab those duty free cigarettes before the price hike hehe. Interestingly though, a pack of pall mall costs more than a pack of dunhill. Used to be the other way round. Oh well, now already married (still kira pengantin baru), have to reduce smoking and hopefully stop it.

    In other non - related news, mmg 'barang' sentiasa naik for this week :rofl:

    when u'r addicted to nicotine than it becomes neccesity & yes people who'd smoke rather than eat is real & i was 1 of them :banghead:

    ---------- Post added at 01:52 AM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 01:41 AM ----------

    vapor eehhh, think the price will be same as cigg smoked per day sooner @ later that's y i opt cigg from the other melayu region, it's stronger so u'll smoke a bit slow & now i'll just smoke half & cut wit the folding scissor & continue later + i only spend RM5.5 per day & sumtimes 4 2 days

    Or...

    Follow me, probably sell my Merz and chug slowly on the vroomy junky Beetle.....

    hahaha....:love::adore::driver:

    ---------- Post added at 03:12 AM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 03:04 AM ----------

    Yes!

    Just based on 2 million packets of cigarettes sold a day nationwide...

    RM0.30 sen increase is about RM600,000 extra income a day for that someone!

    Thats RM18, 000, 000 a month boy....

    Isnt it cool ?

    It attacked on the volume!

    So 30 sen is not seen as a big deal....

    Whats in store next?

    Rice? Flour? Diesel? Petrol? Electricity? Water? :mad::mad::thefinger::thefinger:

    Only left to be seen.....

    But we have this thread to monitor.....

    hahaha.....(thats about all we can do anyway...)
