    After the announcement of 25% increase in liquor duties last month, some food and beverage vendors have been marking up the prices of beers by more than the calculated increase set by MOF. According to MOF, the rise in beers prices should be between 19 and 41 cents per bottle, inclusive of GST, which in turned passed on to consumers.

    However, consumers complained that some vendors have increased their beer prices by more than a dollar.

    By the way, it is an offence for the vendors who charge more than the range indicated by MOF?

    These are good news, until I remembered the increase in COE. We need a mathematical genius to figure this out.

    I was at McDonald yesterday to buy a meal. The counter staff told me that some of the items prices have risen. When I asked her what was the reason, she just smiled at me and told me that everything has to go up in price except my salary.
