As I mentioned in the post before this, Singaporeans should expect the Mother of All Inflation when G starts to roll out the 700,000 housing units and all the supporting facilities to support a “worst case scenario” of 6.9 million people living in this tiny island home of ours.
Because the economy cannot but overheat when billions $ are being splashed all over the place.
When that happens, I wonder how much the dry cleaner shop I use will charge me for laundering my balcony drapes and sitting room window curtains?
I wonder because in less than seven months the cost of sending them to this dry cleaner auntie who operates at Pek Kio market has gone up by 33%.
The bill for the two sets I sent for washing and ironing (note not dry cleaning!) in June last year was $60. The bill for the two alternate sets I sent last month was $80. When I protested, the dry cleaner auntie said:”Eh, I already give you a $4 discount. Should be $84!”
I guess I shall have to wait till mid-year when the next lot of curtains are due for their half-yearly ablutions 🙄
It could be curtains for nice curtains. Maybe I should go to Giants n buy some plastic sheets to use in place? 🙄
