The Days of Yore.
It may come as some surprise to you that the price of things keep going up, and up. Everything gets more expensive, every year. It's a fact of life: You probably know how many times your father looks at the sky with a nostalgic look in his eyes, and with a wistful sigh, say, "When I was a young boy, Coca-Cola only cost 20 sen a bottle".
And perhaps you too, have had your own wistful sigh and your own wistful, wishful remark. "When I was a young boy, a plate of chicken rice was only RM4..."
Soon, the day may come when you become an old man, wrinkled and grey, hair thinning and eyes squinting, when you'll be looking at a young boy and say aloud, to nobody in particular, "When I was your age, a can of Coca-Cola cost us only RM1.50..."
