With the “season” of increased price of goods here to taunt many Malaysians, how much do you spend on groceries? RM300, or more? A politician recently proved that you don’t need that much to spend on groceries.

With a budget of RM200, Senator Fauziah Salleh, the Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade and Costs of Living recently went to a local supermarket to shop for groceries, and to prove that you don’t need more than RM200 for groceries. Here’s what she purchased from the local supermarket, as seen in the video shared by WA fans.

  • 2 packs of crackers
  • a pack of 850g Milo
  • 2 packs of instant noodles
  • 2 packs of flour
  • 5kg of cooking oil
  • A pack of 5kg rice
  • 2 cans of sardines
  • A can of condensed milk
  • Onions, potatoes and chicken

Did the items exceed Fauziah’s budget of RM200? When the cashier calculated the price, the display showed a total of RM136.30. This means the price was lower than Fauziah’s expectation and she even had a balance of RM62.70 which she could’ve used for something else.

Still think it isn’t enough? Fauziah has a message for you.

“Who said you need RM500 for groceries? RM200 is more than enough. I personally evaluated the items. Stop spreading lies.”

Judging from Fauziah’s items in the cart, most of the materials can last a week or two, depending on how much her family members eat.

“It’s still not enough! How long can they last?”

Netizens, on the other hand, insisted that RM200 for groceries is not enough and the items that can be bought with the amount can barely last, especially for those with big families.

“I hope no one inherits her stupidity, especially the youth.”

“The way I see it, some of the items can last a month, some can only last 4-5 days.”

“It works if you keep those items in the kitchen and dine out every day, and only cook at home at the end of every month.”

“RM200 but for how long? 1 week? What about sugar and salt? What about seasonings and eggs?”

You can watch the clip below and make your own judgment.

Fellow Malaysians, do you think RM200 is enough for your groceries? How much do you usually spend for 2 weeks on groceries?
