Air ticket
I like flying with Airasia

1. Plane Ticket

I am not really smart everytime I take Airasia, my receipt shows a GST charge RM11.83. Is this a chinese owned company ?

GSC Ticket
I like GSC

2. GSC Ticket

I am not really good in math. Everytime I watch a movie in cinema. There was a charge as little as RM0.69 for adult and RM0.37 for kids.

McDonalds Rio Burger
I like McDonalds

3. McDonalds

I always like to eat McDonalds. But, Pop culture warns us not too much because too much links to our level of intelliegent ??  GST is RM1.22

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. 

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%

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.

Domino Pizza
I like Pizza !

14. Domino Pizza

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 ?
