A little rant on Monday/星期一碎碎念

Less than 10 days to embrace the unwanted GST thingy, do you care to stock up necessary items? If yes what are they? Come let's share =)

My baby is coming in May and we can't run away from GST by then, this I can't control :p
But at least I can start to stock up some diapers and other household stuff now (in fact we have been doing that since last 2 weeks).

I think from next month onwards, people have to work even harder to earn more money, or eat/buy less to save....... For people like me, 6% is quite a lot! Adui~

还有不到10天就要面对那烦人的GST东东!大家是不是已经开始扫货来囤了?如果有可以分享是什么吗?

二宝预产期是在5月所以我们是避免不了那6%了。不过至少现在可以开始买些日常用品来收了。上两个星期就开始买了尿片还有些药材来收了(这周末还要继续扫),虽说还得收多两个月不过能省就省嘛,对于我这种贫民来说6%算很多了。。**

我看下个月开始大家得更努力赚钱了,或许要绑肚子了,还有不可再随便乱花了!!@_@

    1. I think for us mostly end customers, just expect EVERYTHING with GST lah, only when we are not charged with GST for something then we see those as bonus, else having to remember what are bound for GST what are exempted from GST also quite a tough thing to do.. but of course, better remember those that are exempted from GST so that we are not cheated..

    3. Rice no GST but other factors may cause rice and the meals we eat to increase price.

    5. The best person to advise us would be Wenn! She sells everything that we need. She should display her goods in divided area for "ADA GST" & "TIADA GST" sections. Muahahaha

  2. I thought of stocking up too, but hubby always says 'stock up dou kei tor', coz we still need to use on a regular basis.. I need to buy more detergents, softeners (I use like 1 bottle every 2 weeks), diapers, Milo and my favourite Ferrero Rocher, hehe.

  15. I think it will be same like petrol price. After two weeks, we get used to it, then life goes on.

    Of course, single person like me, nothing much to stock up. Fresh food can't buy two months in advance, and the other things, buy when I need them.

    1. Of course life goes on! Just that for the time being, it's really scary to think of it!

  16. My hubby doesn't believe in buying everything before GST comes cos he said many already raised their prices!

    I am going to make sure all stuff needed for baby are prepared before April comes though, at least the initial stuff lor, the extra I also have to buy after that already.

    Replies
    1. Yes, you should. Cause when the baby is here, you'll realize you'll need to buy a lot of stuff! So better save now~

      Delete
  17. Now shops are telling us to buy more now because GST is coming. No point lah because how much can we stock up? In the end we still have to pay the GST in our next purchase.

    1. I know, but at least try to stock up as much as we can la! Cause for people who have small kid like me (second baby coming soon), it'll be a heavy burden!

  18. I just bought 3 packs of diapers for Jamie.

    Did not really care to stock up because sooner or later we have to accept and embrace the price hike on certain stuff.

    Yup. Medical and hospital fee will have the 6% gst when you are delivering in May.

  21. Honestly I was bothered and disturbed by this GST until I told myself to let the people suffer enough to change the gomen! By then no more GST, I hope. I will shop wiser and maybe grow my own vegetables!

  22. You know what's ridiculous?

    My neighbourhood bakery has increased the prices from 20 cents to 70 cents PER BUN! That's insane! How can you justify increasing so much per item when it's made of so little ingredients?
