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.
