Eating in school canteen can save you a lot of money in these inflationary times

My head is still spinning from too much football. Anyway, found an idea that you might like, or at least consider. I am sure you are not the only one feeling that everything has gone up in price. These were the far-reaching consequences I was referring to, this RM2.70 per litre affects almost all aspects of our money-spending lives.

Ok, here is this idea. You have 4 to 5 friends whom you promise to take out for lunch. This promise was made well before the petrol price hike announcement. There is really no escape but to "pay". But how do you soften the blow, so to speak?

TWO WORDS my friend: SCHOOL CANTEEN. They are still selling their char kueh teow at RM1.70. The last time I paid this much for my kueh teow was before America went to war with Iraq (the first one!), and that was a long time ago.

Go, eat at school canteens, they are still selling at pre-war prices.

(To salary-earning adults: fantastic idea if you don't mind the kiddie portion and those noisy sweaty kids... but just a short note, I am sure there is an ethical issue somewhere...hmm, somewhere)
