Prices hikes

grocery shopping

grocery shopping

Just had grocery shopping at Marunaka and realised that they’ve raised the prices almost for everything.
I can’t believe one Apple cost ¥158 yen. It used to be only ¥99 yen. Three carrot cost me ¥198 yen, and it used to be ¥98-99 yen.
Need to cut down on my expense from now on because I read that the Japanese government planning to raise the consumption tax from 5% to 8% starting next month and 10% starting 2015. I know it’s probably nothing compare to other countries like Brazil and India but still it is going to hit Japan economy quite hard.

I guess no more toys for Risa, well she’s already have so many toys. Thinking to stop her Japanese Shimajiro subscription which cost about ¥21240 yen annually. But she seems to love it so I think I’m going to let this one until next year.

Anyway enough about the price, I’m also thinking to start practicing reading and writing Kanji again. So far I can only read and write a little bit Kanjis for Elementary levels. I learnt reading and writing Kanji over 10 years ago hopefully I can still remember how to write at least 200 kanjis.

今日はマルナカお買い物行ってきました 今までお買い物するとき値段をあんまり見てないですけど、何か食費が上がりましたかな?
リンゴ一個で158円 前は未だ99円、にんじんも前は3個で99円で買えました今はも198円。


I have so many interest that I can hardly list them :p Outgoing, loving and love shopping especially sales month. I like summer and love Autumn so much.
