Singaporeans and tourists queuing up for ice cream in a hot afternoon. This ice cream man has been in this spot for decades, just next to the Cavenagh Bridge and a short distance from Victoria Memorial Hall and the Asian Civilisation Centre.
Why my coke is 80c?
Ah Pek was seen arguing with the mama shop why his can of coke is now 80c and not 60c. Ah Pek said he read in the paper that the prices of common household goods increased only by 4.3%.
Now his coke of 60c increased by 20c or 33%!
How can? Profiteering huh!
