The price for lettuce has gone from RM6 to RM8 per kg, while sawi (Chinese cabbage) has increased from between RM3 and RM4, to RM5 per kg. It is expected for these prices to remain at least until the next month.

A seller, who wanted to aptly be known as Choy said she had anticipated the increase of prices.

“Most of us get our vegetable supply from Cameron Highlands. If it rains heavily, production will be affected.”

“Unless the weather changes for the better, we expect the prices to be expensive until Chinese New Year,” continued Choy.

Choy, like ‘vegetable’ in Cantonese? Hehe.

Another seller, who wished to be known as Imah said that transportation costs has also affected the prices. Everything also naik, but not our gaji!
