The cost of everything seems to be rising these days. The other day, I went for lunch and got charged almost RM5 for a plate of nothing but vegetables! It's crazy! Food is really expensive now, especially around my area where there aren't many choices and whatever existing shops run on a monopoly type of business. Some attribute it to the rising oil prices and others blame it on inflation. Whatever it is, at the end of the day, the people who will suffer are the normal consuers like me and you.
