Starting this year @ 2005, all the Malay-based main-stream newspaper’s price will be increased about 30 to 50 cents per se.
Utusan Malaysia – from RM1.20 to RM1.50
Mingguan Malaysia (Sunday) – from RM1.50 to RM2.00B
erita Harian – from RM1.20 to RM1.50
Berita Minggu (Sunday) – from RM1.50 to RM2.00
They said (the newspaper Co) that the price of paper-based products have been increased since 1990s whereas the price of newspaper has not been changed since then. But why a sudden hike? Is it because all of Malaysian are still tsunami-think-a-like that they can simply increase the price without being really protested by the marhaen like you and me?
Poor consumers, I have never heard of any reduction of daily consumption products since I was born! Semua nak naik, tol naik, elektrik naik, paper naik, gula naik…..yang turun hanya hujan je.
