You may top up Grab Singapore with Malaysian RHB visa card







At Singapore, Malaysian will not be able to see Grab Malaysia interface even with balance of RM100. The urge to use Grab car service among the youngsters are on the rise. Singapore has efficient public transportation. However, Grab has lenient rules one may bring pet, large luggage, eat or drink. In fact, the rise of Grab car are likely due to youngsters cant get MRT and public bus after midnight.



It seem like Visa does have a higher fee. RM154.79 for SGD50 is about 0.323 rate.



A current exchange rate from SGD to MYR is 3.01. RM154.79 should get SGD51.42.

*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

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 ?
