Robert's Google+



Is West Malaysia chicken way expensive than East Malaysia ?


Bangsar Aeon chicken thigh price more or less RM13.00 per KG
East Malaysia chicken thigh price more or less RM9.40 per KG


Chicken price at West Malaysia and East Malaysia
East Malaysia every 100g chicken thigh is RM0.94. West Malaysia every 100g chicken thigh is rm1.31


Nowadays, you are not consider lucky to get 100g chicken thigh for RM1.00. There are RM0.90 for 100 grams of chicken thigh in West Malaysia.



Not much effort in this comparison simply to point out there are very little price gap between West and East Malaysia chicken price.In fact, chicken price is not fixed likened to Malaysia petrol price. There will be fluctuation in local produced chicken but rarely seen it actually raised to RM15.00 per kilo. Although Kuala Lumpur is a big city, East Malaysia food price are catching up real quick. Most of restaurant food prices are following West Malaysia standard.





Frankly speaking, West Malaysia restaurants with air-conditioning and nice interior setting are growing rapidly attracting younger generation and affluent community to try their foods in an exchange for higher food price. For more extravagant food, one should easily find it at West Malaysia.



Neither West or East Malaysia restaurants used imported chicken. High-end hotel restaurants may use the same local produced chicken as the open-air restaurants.


The support price for local produced chicken priced at RM8.50 and the ceiling price could be at RM14.00 per KG.

Wechat Wallet allows user top up mobile number



Wechat is a huge mobile app among the Mandarin-speaking countries notably China. However, there are lots of social networking apps offers the same functionality. From a random statistic shown that Hong Kong and Taiwan people prefer "Line" developed by IT company from South Korea. As if the app Line is not usable, they would prefer "WhatsApp".



There are huge differences between Wechat version in Malaysia and China. China version of Wechat allows users browse movies and make daily transaction. They are strong believer of cashless society. Whereas, Malaysian are generally go to stores with their smartphone and wallet. The term "Cashless Society" is still very fresh and new to them.



Lack of apparent benefits of cashless further slow down acceptance on this phenomenon. It will take awhile to witness common traders / sellers / hawkers putting up barcode allowing buyer/patron pay with their smartphone. Besides, nation with fewer population and slower internet speed may not be an ideal place for such ground-breaking innovation.



 A nation with large population and with faster internet speed is able to reap benefits in cashless society with consumer transactions time reduced and less paper corruption cases. Imagine thousands of automobile on the road are crossing the toll counter paid by using mobile app instead of paper currency. Besides, authorities could have easily obtain digital evidence those trying to bribe a traffic officers.



Time is as valuable as gold and more. Saving 10 seconds for 1 million population is a disruptive force for better society.

Will retail price of chicken in Malaysia reach RM10.00 price point ?


How many of you actually remember retail price Chicken you bought during festive season or perhaps during tax holiday 2018 ?

Chicken price in February 2018 during festive season



*This article  is not an indicator of nation economic situation and the article is meant to be self-explanatory.  Most of the content are author's interpretation.



It is quite interesting topic to ask how much chicken price back in 2000 ? Certainly, no one could give you a correct number. Even if you have found the actual number, average people just can't do anything about it. All we do is pointing the finger. In fact, time cant be reversed and we cant really move backward in time, people's hope for moving forward may have been the foundation for price hike.



As a consumer, we can't really do anything about it but, we can be an observer. What are the force behind it actually drive the price to further up ? the cost of manpower or just pure business profit margin ?



From the above logic, the price moving upward is a trend could be caused by employee wage increase, fuel increase, currency fluctuation in a sense that business will always maximize it profit in order to be competitive. The price hike is a vicious cycle that in the end of the day government gains lots of corporate taxes and could distribute the wealth back to the people. In often, the flourish of business will create wealth and potentially taking care the people too.

During the tax holiday, Chicken breast price did not reach RM10.00 price point. However, chicken wing and chicken drumstick hit RM12.00 price point. Is Chicken price varies among the store ?



There are reasons why many times common folk pointing fingers to authorities when price suddenly have a upward change rather than business institution. It is uncommon to blame the business community because all they do is to maximize the profit and pay their tax routinely. Not to mention, there are shops everywhere selling the same stuff nationwide. The business competition is so fierce hardly any unethical practice because it will drive the particular business down, investor wealth lost lead to chicken store closing down and business have always been regarded to create wealth and use the wealth to create innovative product in a long run. There were nothing prouder when local business venture to the international stage.



 In fact, authorities have the majority people vote in democratic elected nation could have use machinery and mechanism to suppress any business wrongdoings or unethical profiteering. The least they can do is going out and make a campaign in the campaign speech was to encourage people turn their voices toward the business community.



September 2, 2018 after SST implementation


RM10.00 for chicken breast and drumstick. As for chicken wing, there are slight drop in price. Put the blame on chicken vendors is likened mistreat employees who have put lots of effort in slaughter chickens for the public consumption.



Author is not trying to be smart. But, authorities could opt to fine chicken vendor association for market price manipulation, encourages more chicken produce in order to gain more chicken market supply or they could buy all the chicken in the market and sell it cheaply.

Authorities should always monitor market chicken price and make an annual inflation report. It is not transparent and efficient to just make national  inflation report that includes everything likely to have intention to misled the public intelligence.

Gaming PC/Laptop should have at least 8GB RAM

Robert's Google+


Any laptop you bought on 2018 should have at least 8GB system RAM for minimal pleasure on gaming.



Try a new laptopr or PC ? higher chance you will tumble on windows 10 that required minimum 4GB RAM to run. The truth is windows 10 required a constant roughly 2.5GB RAM to maintain. For any user activities, you are just left with estimated 1.5GB RAM.



1.5GB RAM may seem to be enough for casual web browsing and watching Youtube. In some point, you will need to run its on PC games. This is where everything turn sour and ugly questioning "why newly bought laptop/PC on 2018 cannot handle a 5 years old game bought from Steam ?" 



Experts would argue you are still able to run the game. However, the game constantly taking 95% of the RAM. There was no secret that a game still run on 4GB RAM but with less FPS and happen to have events of stutter.



4GB RAM Laptop/PC are still widely available in today market. In fact, you just opt for higher than 8GB RAM and surely with medium to high tiered graphic card for better gaming experience. To shed a little information about GPU, any GPU running on DDR5 and 4GB VRAM are considered good for gaming. Should you accept 4GB system RAM with Nvidia 10xx series ? of course big no.


 

Fortnite Battle Royale taking 3GB RAM
There was no better things to do than playing Fortnite right now.



In order to further turn you off buying a 4GB RAM PC/Laptop, one of the best game genre in 2010 - 2020 Fortnite battle royale by Epic games is occupying more than 3GB RAM. 



As if you had 4GB RAM, it is literally unplayable for lacking 1.5GB RAM. To be frank, you could still play the game with image stuttering and imagine engaging in a large scale combat, instead of playing a game it like you are watching a frame to frame images.



PUBG mobile taking 1.5GB RAM
PUBG mobile by Tencent



Emulator and PUBG mobile is taking up 1.5GB RAM. With 4GB system RAM, you will get a constant 90% RAM occupied. It is not harsh to say you could never open a single page of google chrome or even try to do a desktop refresh. Some gamer like to open voice-chat software during game and you may try to open some of your favorite song ? Here is my suggestion, buy a PC/laptop setup that come with 8GB RAM or more. 



In the coming years, gaming enthusiats are slowly adopting live streaming their favorite game. 8GB RAM may not be enough any longer. You may need 16GB RAM in the year 2025 ?

Starbucks
I like Starbucks



4. Starbucks


Is the chinese-owned company sentiment over ? I am not over. From wikipedia it is not a secret company behind Starbucks Malaysia handled by a Chinese in Malaysia and they pay tax too. Are rich people the only group purchase Starbucks ?  I leave it to you decides. Before you ever leave this page, remember Wakanda people actually like Starbucks



This Starbucks I bought during half-price promotion. It charge me RM0.53 for GST




Corn product Malaysia
I like Corn


5. Canned Food



I remember somewhere actually stated canned corn is one of the product charged with 6% GST. Yes, it might be a chinese company. Everyone starts to freak out when they found out the owner is Chinese.



Kimball Thai Chili
I like Spicy sauce



6. Processed Chili Sauce



I bet processed Chili actually need to be charged with 6% GST. It is processed and likely to be included in GST list.



Huawei G8
I like Huawei. But, each year new phone come out my love gradually fade



7. Huawei Smartphone



In this few years, there were influx of China made technology products in Malaysia especially smartphone brands from Huawei and Oppo. Your newly owned smartphone is proudly brought to you GST charge totalled RM84.xx. 




Asus
I like Asus



8. Asus Laptop



First of all, Asus is made from Taiwan. Although most of them are mandarin speaking at there.(Namewee used to study there) but, Asus is a product by import. I am not rich enough to buy a gaming laptop and this laptop i bought could not actually play PUBG. it may run Dota 2 or Crysis 2. The point is, I got charged MYR 93.00. 



Good example from Huawei smartphone and Asus laptop. As long as the price point is higher, your 6%GST charge is gonna be higher.




SESB receipt with GST 6%
SESB



9. Power Plant


Most people do not really write anything about power plant because they are afraid SESB going to unplug electricity at our home. I do not know about West Malaysia, i guess they have the same type of paper receipt right ? There were not much differences between us. West Malaysia may use red-colored banner with TNB logo.



Have you seen your home electricity bill lately because your whole life revolves around it. The first 300kwh is not qualify for GST collection. the next kwh is going to be included into GST list. Anyone opens Air-condition at night are guaranteed over 300kwh. My electricity bill GST is RM6.00




watson cosmetic
I like cosmetic




10. Watson



Do you know that watson headquarter is based at Hong Kong. We love shopping at watson because there are so many choices on the shelves. A big company with heavy revenue always in the GST list. I get taxed RM2.39 each time I bought something at Watson







11. Postpaid Plan



A bit sceptical whether Maxis and Celcom Postpaid have any 6% GST. The newly introduced Digi Postpaid 100 infinite seem to have 6% GST. Rumor you actually can claim it back.






12. Tofu



There was a quotation actually stated processed tofu are able to be taxed in 6% GST.



Cassava flour
Delicious flour



13.Ubi Flour



Corn and Cassava flour are not wheat or rice flour. It could be in GST list.

Pizza is definitely needed to be collected in GST because it too delicious and people easily get too much of it. Refrain from eating, if it too delicious, the secret to longevity



Receipt 4GB RAM from Lazada
I love Lazada



15. Internet Shopping



Do not buy if you cannot afford just stick to 4GB system RAM laptop. When I do buy it, it said I got taxed in shipping cost as well as the product. Shipping cost plus GST is quite expensive ?


GST RM5.30 for my shipping and my 4GB RAM stick GST is RM9.40. I thought buying online was cheaper but, RM14.70 is just GST. I cant imagine as if thousands of peoples purchase stuff online.






16. Lot 10 eateries



Charcoal he fen/ho fun/kuey teow stall is really pack with office employees during peak hour.



I like to fly



17. Air Plane Ticket



It pretty much acceptable practice. Walking around the airport, using the airport facilities and the fund can be used for future development a better airport in Malaysia. Above, I am guessing the RM 11.00 is airport tax with 6% GST, RM 0.66. Besides, there was a base fare price RM 141.00 and the GST is RM8.46.






Either GST or SST
Nor RM10.60 or RM10.00
Nor Today or June 1,2018
40billion or 20billion
Guess what ?

Tomorrow still need to wake up and go to work!! Ain't nobody got time for that. Am I the only one did not move on in this GST subject ?

Robert's Google+


Highly influential China's variety programme "Running Man"  endorsed Yili Group's Greek Yogurt


Yili greek yogurt




Fans of the show have tried to purchase or to extend, imports the drink from China in order to displays their support and love on the variety show and celebrities. Although generally speaking most of Malaysian are not fond of yogurt drinks, due to celebrity endorsement from Li Chen and Angelababy, the market may endures large demand on Yili's greek yogurt beverage in a short time.



During the show, celebrity would satisfy thirst with Ambrosial AnMuXi Greek Yogurt Drink indirectly promoting the yogurt drink. Due to the large demand, the drink can be bought in some local stores in Malaysia for instance, Familymart. The price is at between RM7 - RM20.



The imported drink may have a different type of expiry date to warns the consumer. This yogurt drink most likely shows the manufacture date and encourages consumer drinks it within the duration of 6 months. Besides, do not be discouraged when you found out the beverage date is expired for a month, you may have wrongly noticed it was actually manufacture date for an imported products.



Yogurt or directly translated from Mandarin as "sour milk" is no stranger to us as we have known Yakult from Japan. Both products have a similarity in taste. However, a humble opinion, Yili's greek yogurt is much more sticky andcreamy.
