The Sunday Times editor warns

Do not think 20c is trifling matter. Kopi in the kopitiams is up by 20c or more. Used to be 60c or 70c. Now it is 90c, or at the franchised outlets it is $1.30. Then bread and kaya, and eggs, also up 10c or 20c respectively. In the neighbourhood kopitiams, some may forgo their regular kopi, even the cheaper kopi O. Too expensive. They will opt for plain water at 20c a cup. And these people are going to enjoy their happy lives till 80 or 100 years, drinking 20c plain water and maybe plain roti. What a life!

most people tot it is compulsory to order drinks in thecoffeeshop even when the coffeeshop owners unscrupulously raise the kosong drinks, when sugar prices rose, they just pay up without question.

if you dunt want to be taken for a ride, dun order drinks in the coffeeshop if possible.. carry a plastic bottle like the rest of us.
