Does PM know that kopi o prices will have to rise?

PM tells us we gotta pay more for goods and services to help the less-off S’poreans in the Pay and Pay’s version of Xi’s “common prosperity”: No mention of “common prosperity” last nite. Xi’s main thrust is to shake down the billionaires but then he’s a Communist and proud of it. PM’s parents were from rich families.

Wholesale robusta bean prices have risen by about 50% so far this year. Vietnam is a major producer of robusta. The lockdown of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s commercial centre, because of the Indian variant of Covid-19, means Vietnam’s exporters are struggling to transport goods, including coffee beans, to ports for shipment around the world.

So

 

Robusta coffee beans are used to make strong, bitter coffee. So it is used to make instant coffee and to blend with Arabica. Arabica coffee beans are used to make coffee for discerning taste buds.

Our kopi o is made from robusta, with a dash of Arabica, perhaps.

I personally like robusta coffee. But to get rid of the bitterness, I soak robusta coffee bags in room temperature water for at least 18 hours. The resulting concoction is sweet. No need to add sugar.

    Oh,GDP THIS YEAR 6-7 PCT.
    HIGH KPIs again from ministers.
    Pay increases,more bonus,call it THE COVID ENDEMIC BONU$?

    It is not just about LOW WAGES,IT IS ABOUT COMPARATIVE WAGES AND ESCALATED *rising cost of living* imposed upon ordinary sgs by the govt,isnt it???

    The $100 Billion will likely be clawed back by GST INCREASES,higher prices and charges from NTUC TO HOSPITALS AND SING POWER?

    WHY NOT CLAW BACK FROM CORPORATES AND INCOME TAX?

    He very resourceful! He can make it happen. He get his surbordinate to get the stall to add hum to bak chor mee and now we have a new version of bak chor mee with hum. He can have coffee with hum if he wants. And another new creation of coffee with hum.

    If only such creativity be used to solve real life problem for the poor peasants and PMET.

    we always say this ci is a cheapskate pap PA paid IB.

    BTW anything sweet means, 100% confirmed, there is sugar.

    unless the sweetness is from artificially introduced chemical, there cannot be sweetness without sugar. unless, of course, it is pap speak, or pap PA paid IB speak, such as INDIAN is malay.

    in other words, ci is either not very clear as to how sweetness comes about or ci is lying for whatever reason.

    We must OPEN BORDERS (NOW) to connect to the other countries( which ones)?
    We need *FDIs*?
    How much ?
    $100 BILLION COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER APPLIED TO CHURN OUR DOMESTIC ECONOMY(VIA INCREASED AGGREGATE DEMAND) INSTEAD OF GRANTED TO THE HAVES(FTs included plus NEW INTRA-COMPANY TRANSFEREES) N MERELY PUSHING UP STOCK MARKET?

    So MANY MPAs n MBAs n multiple-degrees holders on top public office and this is the CHEAP POLICY THINKING we get from them?

    What a shame!

    XJP says to open STOCK EXCHANGE IN BEIJING soon.
    Looks like he wants closer supervision of China’s super-rich?
    Shanghai will still shine.
    HKSE probably lose out some?

    Beijing seems serious.
    No more just copying NYK-WASHINGTON style.

    Interesting to see how NEW BEIJING EXCHANGE will fare.
