Came across the obscene price of an egg in a forum thread started by Sen. He posted a few pics of food in the newly opened Msia Hawker Food Street at Spore's 1st casino.
Msia's Genting Group which owns the casino is sensible to bring local favor of Msian hawker food as attraction while S'pore incumbent govt has neglected hawker food by not building any hawker centres for more than 20years. Instead of hawker food we get more & more faceless spam such as kopitiam, koufu, MacDonalds, KFC, BK etc. Aren't you sick & tired of all these spam & spam businesses? Do tourists come here to savor these kind of food spam?
Char Kway Teow NO Egg $4
Char Kway Teow Got Egg $5
However i find the price of 1 egg absolutely ridiculous. What value is that in paying $1 for an egg?
With S$5 one can eat 3 plates(2 plates already stomach burst) of char kway teow by simplying crossing the causeway into JB where the real authentic stuff is. Thoughts of how much value i get just across the border puts me off many things in S'pore where one is simply paying a significant chunk in rentals.
