After GST was implemented, I never had a chance to go to any supermarket or mart to buy my needs. Normally, I always had my needs sufficient for a week. It just a few days after GST, I finally managed to step my foot to one of the supermarket near my university. Some prices already went up before GST was implemented and some are still the same.
As a student, part-timer, debtor, a daughter and ......... (too many to mention....LOL) I can feel the burden of GST. Eventhough, our government had keep telling us that GST will not effect the citizen but the reality is totally different. It is totally affecting our lives....... :(
Back to my life after GST.... Gardenia, will always be my choice when buying breads. I always buy Original, Butterscotch or ChocoRaisin flavours. I think Butterscotch flavour was RM4.20 back then (early 2015) but I managed to check a week before GST, the price is RM 4.45 and after GST the price is still RM 4.45

HP 46 Ink cartridge. Both prices for black and colours are same. Before GST, it was RM37 but as you guys remember, I bought 2 cartridges at PC Fair in UPM, at that time, I bought by using my BB1M voucher and it cost only RM36 for each but if you bought by using cash, you will get RM34. Now, after GST, the price became RM39.22.....ouch..my money.

and, last but not least, as a customer, we have to be smart. Don't get trick by the seller. Make sure, for those seller that implementing the GST, make sure their company is registered. Always check your receipts and make sure only designated goods will be charged.
