Went to Tesco Kajang for groceries last Sunday. It's not that I really wanted to go after just recovering from viral fever but have literally almost nothing in spare. So had to go. Like always, I was praying the kids would behave while we do our shopping. Bribed Iman with 2 cheap matchbox cars and he stayed in the cart all the way through. Thank God! As for Kakak, we kept her busy with the shopping list.
But that was not the point. We gawked to see the hike in prices. For example Iman's 6-in-a-pack Dutch Lady Choc Milk is priced at RM7.80. They used to be RM5.++ and we used to consider RM6.++ as mahal already. The formula Iman used to feed on is priced at almost RM70. It used to be much much cheaper back then. Same goes to Kakak's Enfagrow. I thought of buying some Italian Herbs but when I saw it was tagged at RM8.90 (I used to buy similar herbs from the same brand at around RM7.++ before), I decided to just forget about it. Kraft stick-cheese is sold at RM8.00 per pack of 6. Dedulu it was around RM6.++ ajek kalau tak silap so the kids had to settle with that usual slice ones only. And with RM100 in your hands at a wet market, you don't get much as before, don't you think? Aiyohh... And I haven't started on price increase on kiddy's education these days (yet). I have long forgetten about branded things for myself. Except for my Biotherm perhaps :P. Perhaps the only consolation we got that day was a RM3+.++ red Huggies for Iman. (We once bought that same pack for almost RM60.00 years ago!)
But I'm sticking with my Canon, just in case you are wondering!
