    Mc Donalds Extra Value meal for lunch...

    Had Mc Donalds for lunch.
    I ordered Mc Spicy EXTRA Value Meal ~ SGD5.00 per set!!!!!

    Value meh?
    SGD5.00 * 2.4 = RM12.00 per set.

    Malaysia's Mc Donalds Value set is only RM5.95 per set, but I don't think they have Mc Spicy for Value meal lah...

    * This is how I live in SG lah, everything convert!!!

    Okay. I know I shouldn't convert.

    I normally don't carry much cash with me when I am in SG. I think maximum is 50 dollars...
    I had 5 dollars in my wallet today (I was aware of this since yesterday, but I insisted not to go to the bank because I know I still can survive for another day with this 5 dollars), and I used up that 5 dollars for my lunch, and it means I don't even have a single cent in my wallet now. Got to go to the bank to withdraw some money tonight. I don't really need cash in SG, as long as my Ez-link card (Similar to Touch n Go, mainly used for transport fare) is topped up with some credits. If lets say I need to buy food later, I can go to any 7-11 or Mc Donalds, I can pay using my Ez-Link card. Cashless transactions...
    Worse comes to worst then mar use credit card lor...

    Spending Ringgit is more enjoyable compare to spending in dollars...
    One more day to go......

    One to One, Singapore McD still cheaper than Malaysia.

    By the way, Kolo mee and dry noodle is about the same. However, the texture and the taste of Kolo mee is rather unique. Maybe due to its preparation method

    QuaChee said...

    ya, conversion is terrible haha! :)

    Doreen said...

    Ya loh, you shouldn't convert lah. You're earning SGD and using SGD mah. Cannot convert like that lah. If you were to work in the UK, wah then no need to eat loh. Hehehehe.

    jezalmy said...

    levian said...

    levian said...

    my favorite would be chicken mcdeluxe. :D btw, did i offend you in any way? if i did, i would like to apologize. i didn't mean to be offensive in any ways. :)

    If you talk about that Kolo mee at Chinatown, near Hotel 81 Chinatown, it is not real kolo mee. I never try that stall before but my boss had and said not nice.

    Kolo mee is not suppose to add chili sauce on it. Best kolo mee still can be found in Kuching. Other places, mostly are imitation

    Lisalicious said...

    eh how come never take the pix lei?

    i want to see what is the different

    Josephine said...

    IreneLim: Where got? I earn just enough for me to survive nia...

    Levian: Is Mc Deluxe == Mc Spicy???

    Borneo Falcon: Yalor, I was referring to the Kolo Mee shop near Chinatown. I think the Korn Lou mein with chili sauce is Singaporean style...

    Eugene: U too! Enjoy ur family day!

    Lisa: Same same de. But then u can ask for BBQ sauce, Curry sauce... for free. Unlike Malaysia ones, u can get the sauce only if u order Nuggets...

    MisSmall said...

    Knock yourself out shopping in Malaysia this weekend, gal! But yeah, I do agree that you shouldn't convert. Afterall, you're earning and spending SGD at the same time, so it should balance out. It's good to save, but remember, don't forget to live. :)

    foongpc said...

    Although the price in Singapore looks expensive to Malaysians, but if you are working in Singapore earning Sing Dollars, then I think the food there is cheaper than Malaysia! Don't you agree?
