Petrol Price is up again.

What greets me in the newspaper is a disappointment, although I am not surprise. Petrol is up again by 10 sen. What is going on? I have not seen such continuous rise of Petrol for many years already. I am no genius but I think everybody knows that it will affect us layman as finally the bottom line is that it will cause a domino effect.

Reason being our salary has not really reflected these changes or shall I say it has yet to catch up. Some of us might say, aiyah just 10 cents only, not much. Civil servant in the country has their salary increased but the private sector is taking this as a “bear” sign that the economy will not be good or its not good, so gotten to tighten their belt "together".

The seller in the market will definitely have more reason to increase their goods. The normal Char Kuey Teow has increased 30 cents from the last increase. I think it will be another 30 cents up the stair case that leads to nowhere. Now the plain fried mee hon with only a few bean sprouts is already costing Rm1, let’s wait and see if it will breach the Rm1 mark. Or the seller might just reduce the portion.

I think the next possible increment is price of the newspaper. The best logical steps is to subscribe to an e-paper, it will be more cost effective. Then maybe public transport will increased the fares, parking rates, imported clothes. I guess even local made clothes will follow, shopping complexes might charge patrons a small amount to walk around the place as most of us will try to save some electricity by enjoying free air conds. I think possibly the Air Lines will increase their fares if the newly introduce exchange rates does not really help in the reduction of their daily operation cost.

Aiyah, my calculator is already calculating a huge “potential” increase in my daily expenses just to survive i.e. eat breakfast, take car halfway & take LRT to work, lunch, return to work by LRT & car, dinner, using broadband to blog, oh…. Look at my payslip the figure has not changed for the past 3 years but the petrol has increased a few times for the past year. Oh! my monthly visit to BKK! Air Asia, please do not increase.

Luckily the air I inhale is still free.

We should have some R&D to add the Orchid DNA into our biological distinctiveness. Orchid survive by obsorbing moisture, sucking nutrients from tree skins and make its own sugary substance by exposing a little to the sun. With this ever increasing price increase this seems to be a logical solution Homorchidasapiens!
