from The Star Online
PETALING JAYA: Cigarette prices are expected to go up tomorrow by 70 sen for a pack of 20 sticks.
According to a report by a Chinese daily, most 20-stick packs, which is currently sold at RM9.30, will cost RM10.
Quoting sources, the daily reported that the 70 sen increase is one of the highest in recent history, with previous hikes being between 10 and 30 sen.
Packs of high-grade cigarettes are expected to cost as much as RM14.
A source predicted that the price hike would cause cigarette sales to drop by 10%.
I really do not like people who smoke cigarette. The smell of the smokes really annoys me and makes me want to vomit. I can understand if a smoker wants to smoke but please do it somewhere else, not at public places.
If I am bold enough I will say something to the smoker but I'm not always bold. So I hate them silently. I hope they have more common sense when they see others' annoyed faces.
Please stop smoking. You are not only killing yourself but you are killing others around you too. Please, take this price hike opportunity to stop smoking.
