Still the $1 wonderful ice cream
I haven't had this $1 ice cream for quite a long time and was surprised that it was still a dollar. It was that low price 15 years ago and probably before. It is still Magnolia as I remember as a primary school boy. What hasn't stayed the same is that they are almost all sold by Ah Peks. I think this is more like public service than business. Nobody would be willing to succeed Ah Pek when he can't carry on any more.
Meanwhile the humble sugar cane drink had doubled to even tripled in price at some hawker centres.
