I've noticed that the potions and ingredients of the usual hawker food have decreased although the prices remain the same as before.
I was told that chap fun (economy rice) sellers are dishing out a smaller portion of rice at first serving and tend to take the opportunity to charge more for what used to be a standard meal - what used to cost RM4.50 now cost RM5 - RM5.50.
The cost of living in KL has definitely increased but the income of the average white collar worker remains the same.
