No more 1 dirham pepsi

Prices of soft drinks have gone by 50 fils at many places in Dubai since Wednesday. Groceries and cafeterias are selling a can of soft drink for Dhs 1.50.

I predicted this. Too bad I didn't tell anyone but myself -- does nothing for my pundithood.

Also look for the candy bars in vending machines to get smaller -- or has that happened already?

A few years ago bottled water in the vending machines got smaller instead of there being a change in the coins you had to dig out of your pocket. Did you notice?

It's not so easy to change the size of cans.

ah such end of the 1Dh Bebi era - so sad - oh well it is what it is.

Hey u can still get shawarmas for 2dhs in Ajman - that hasn't changed since the 70's : )
