bugger, price hikes

Well, you can't expect much since Australia is not beautiful Boston with cheap (or very reasonable) living cost. Due to lack of super efficient and super-low pollution (*) nuclear power planets, the power (electricity) is Australia is ridiculous high compared to United States at least. And the worst part, it is set to raise. Apart from electricity, water is expensive (compared to United States as well), and taxi is also ridiculously expensive, and poor service.

Well, today's news, coffee price is increasing. Now, I am concerned. The good part is that Nespresso capsules prices have not increased recently, and the milk (Pura Milk) price is decreasing (thanks to the milk price war between the two supermarket giants.)

Are coffee drinkers going to cut down the consumption of coffee due to price hike? If the cafes increase carefully, the coffee drinkers aren't likely to change or reduce their habits. As for the poor Antony, he will continue to drink his Nespresso coffee.

On the Don-interested news, Laurent recently discovered a wholesaler selling Don's favourite Mountain Dews soft drink in cans. Previously, I failed to find any Mountain Dews in cans in major supermarkets. Shall Don visits Sydney, I will have enough Mountain Dews in 375ml cans to quench Don's thirst.

(*) Nuclear power planet does not pollute (except releasing heat) while generating electricity. It is one of the very green form of electricity.
