Lunch, Dinner, Meal Price all Increases 10 percent (Malaysia 2011)

Inflation really powerful. Just now i went and buy dinner, you know, its price has been 10% increased, suddenly. From RM5.00 to RM5.50!!! And it happens in small hawker center!!! And it happens in a poor student like me!!! The boss just explained that the price of raw materials is increased, so they need to "adjust" the price of their food as well. Really? Maybe, but I think another reason is the hawker center always crowd of people. Supply and demand theory: When demand is higher than supply, the price, of course, will increase, and vice versa.
In fact, previously, RM5.00 per meal already make me feel very bad. And now, it is even worse. Life is getting more and more difficult. Meal always increases RM0.50 every year. The price of a meal already similar to the price of fast food. What I observed is, the price of fast food does not increase, but the "slow food" always increases annually!!! Without invest our money wisely, it is really a trouble.

I really cannot image how people live in here.With salary of RM2200 per month for a fresh graduate, life essential things such as living, eating, transportation, insurance, communication and clothing, already cost most of our salary.

However, in the same time, other things also getting cheaper, e.g. electronic devices, online services etc. Furthermore, nowadays, Google is everything, and we can obtain knowledge easily and even free of charge.

Therefore, I think if we can follow the trend, wisely use those available technologies to improve our-self, then we should be able to buffer the impact of this unstoppable inflation. Moreover, we can easily learn how to manage our money easily compared to decade ago. And, most of the sources also free of charge and available in Internet.

Internet is a place for us to accelerate and excel our life besides paying game and socializing. Again, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Albert Einstein. All we need to do is to change, to change to the right direction that will bring us toward success eventually.

This is the game rule of this world. You can either abide by or against it. But without deeply understand the game rule, you will never ever win the game. That's all for today.
