latte tastes like hot water, at least provide some quality ?
That's not so bad considering that at OSL airport 3 slices of medium sized Pizzas from Pizzahut + 1 medium Pepsi costs $35 SGD!
I'm currently in Budapest now and the Mcd is about the same price as in Sg.
895 Forint for a Quater Pounder (approx $5+)
Buying a product from Apple, Zara and IKEA could cost more in Singapore compared to 10 other cities, according to a study by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI).
According to the study -- which analyses price differences for 647 items from the three global brands across the 11 cities --"Singapore's prices are found to be relatively high in most instances".
Story clipped piece by piece from CNA.Among the cities included in the study are London, Paris, New York, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
20%..... well that's okay then. I thought we were talking 25-30%MAS added that for most of the items which are more expensive in Singapore, the price premiums do not exceed 20 per cent.
Have to agree with you here on both points - I was shocked at the price, and the taste was no way as good as ones I had in their country of origin. Plus the choices were somewhat limited, I struggled to find one I wanted and wasn't sickly-sweet.movingtospore wrote:Captive market. They can get away with it.
Check out the price of a Krisy Kreme here! $2.95 for a bad doughnut.
