Cameron Highlands vegetable prices going up

Cameron Highlands vegetable prices going up adding to the raising prices of many food essential is adding to the woes of people in Malaysia. My mom-in-law is sure going to complain a lot since she does the marketing!

As for me, I have seen the general prices of food increasing in leaps and bounds! Just last weekend my wife went to purchase a can of sweetened condense milk and she said it was so expensive. She recalled buying it for around RM2, but now she paid about RM3 for it. Now that's about 33% increase!

And yet the Government is still spewing out imaginary CPI index of 5%. In their attempt to show that the country living index is stable to woo in foreigners perhaps to take up MM2H, they forget the real tax contributors are the majority that live and work in Malaysia!
