All in the Fast Food

All in the Fast Food

I have come to realised something about fast food, besides the fact, that they provide us with extra unwanted calories and cholestral. They reflect the standard of living of a country, far better than the economists!

Forget about reading sheets and sheets of reports on a country. Just trot down to a McDonald’s outlet and stare hard at the figures on the menus.

Prices (in S$) (Based on the cheapest menu, not taking into account, the Happy Meals. Therefore, please do not email me for comparisions on those. Thank you!)

Switzerland……….$14 (Believe it or not, this is the cheapest meal in Swiss.)

Austria…………….$10

USA………………..$8.50 (Probably because of the internationl debt this country has chalked up. And afterall, it is only patriotic to price the meals in your homeland cheaper.)

Germany………….$8 (This is the cheapest meal you can get in Germany. I rather save the money and poison myself with my own cooking!!)

Singapore…………$6

Malaysia………….$4

Italy………………..$4

Not only that, Macs‘ meal reflect the affluence of a place, down to the microscopic view!!

With reference to Singapore :

Changi Airport……………………….$6.50 (Our worldclass airport)

Orchard Road……………………….$6.00 (The street that never sleeps)

Bedok & other neighbourhoods….$5.00 (Where the normal people live)

Therefore, discard your newspapers and financial magazines, just make your way to the nearest Macs outlet.

Disclaimer : I have not received a single cent from McDonald’s (though I wish I will!!) and am certainly not their marketing manager. Although, I admit that they have one of the best marketing campaigns in the world! Argh! There I go again!

BaCk iN aCtIoN!

Hey gals and boys! I a…m…. BaCk iN AcTiOn!!!

My holidays are finally over and I am back in good o’le Germany. I am very sorry for the long wait, perk up your spirits and get ready for more crappy tales and corny stories. Well, this is the good news, now for the bad ones.

The company has just slapped us with a memo, prohibiting the usage of the internet for the use of personal recreation during office hours. Oh well, I will just have to either sleep a little less and crawl to the office earlier, or type the articles on the word document and post them onto the blog with lighting speed (Awww!! How cliche!).

However, despair not, I will risk my arms, legs and my mundane job to keep everyone (hopefully) entertained!

P.S. I hate this Germand keyboard. Everything is in the wrong position!! Grrr….!!!
