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!
