Price of ikan kembung has dropped to RM2 a kilo

In Sungai Petani, Kedah.

I’ve not been updating my blog since January. Sorry about that.

The earliest reader comment that was left languishing in my moderation queue dated back to 4 Jan 2017 (below) — from commenter ‘surrhead’ @ 2017/01/04 at 5:33 pm.

Surrhead had complained that the price of ikan kembung (in January) shot up to RM10-12 per kilo.

He will be glad to hear that its current price has gone down to between RM1.40 and RM2 — see this March 16 Utusan report.

Commenter ‘chicken vindaloo’ remarked @ 2017/01/15 at 9:41 pm:

“These days, the prices at kopitiams are even [more] ridiculous, so I even learned to cook various dishes based on recipes that I found online. I don’t know whether I should thank DS Najib for this, but either way, it’s expensive. Even cooking is expensive, but at least, I can stretch more compared to eating out.”

Yeah, me too … belt tightening. I buy my dry groceries at Speedmart 99. It’s the cheapest there, most times.

The commenter calling himself ‘Formerly Known as FHAAHD’ asked @ 2017/01/18 at 6:58 am: “Are you ok, Helen? Still alive?”

Yup, alive. Only the good die young. I ain’t no saint.

HY enquired @ 2017/02/25 at 3:39 pm: “您还好吗?”

I’m fine, thank you for the concern.

Qalam Qabut said @ 2017/03/18 at 10.39 pm: “Lega tengok Helen muncul balik lepas cuti panjang. Apa status you sekarang Helen?” while Tuan Haji Karim Omar commented @ 2017/03/20 at 3:13 pm: “Glad you are back blogging. Mana pergi lama sangat ni?”

Thanks for the kind thoughts.


I have no Faceook or Twitter.
