Goodness $25 bottle of wine is expensive?

You must be living in a wine producing country [laugh]

 

Though our alcohol tax may not be the highest in the world, it'll definitely account around 30% of that $25.

Yes, with those in play, we can expect the policy made would make roof over your head and private B&B car unbelievably expensive.

SG is expenseive in house and car


I find sg food, taxi and even groceries are cheaper than many of those countries.

Maybe they measure it based on living in Orchard or Raffles Place

Not forgetting the slap on the $ required (to obtain a license) to operate a nightspot dispending liquor. Its a further addition add on that waterfalls onto the consumer.

Makes no sense for me to have a drink at coffeeshop since 2006 when I can only smoke in the yellow box.

The yellow box is not the problem per se. Its the environment within the box..., rowdy, noisy, kpkb.  No personal space. Hence I rather get a 6 from Ang Mo, SS, NTUC......get those budget brand and sip on 1-2 cans at night once on a blue moon.

IMHO, that's what they call the affordability, where the fresh graduate first earning is realistically sufficient to support themselves from the day they join the work force. You can compare My, Indo'sia, etc. The living standard of the fresh graduate there is perceived poorer than Sgp base on basic needs (food, lodging, leisure). But the business environment is of the opposite site, to run a business and survive is easier, on a smaller to medium scale, there than here. -_-

Aiyah OZ can BYO,
We stocked up for our consumption at home.
But eating out have to buy from eateries.

But OZ have very strict alcohol rules too.
I was told that one cannot carry an opened bottle of wine/alcohol in the vehicle.
I did that for a few days while I was driving from town to town. Oops.

Went to US, Virginia. Beautiful country, ordered a plate of western food in a restaurant costing $US18. Portion is huge and can "feed" 3 person. How's the calculation.
