I WONDER WHY......??

Last night, I had a night out with family. We went out for dinner at our usual or shall I say our favourite hang out , Medan Selera at Presint 8, Putrajaya. We love the Western food there. It is the one and only stall that serves Western food. Lamb Chop, Chicken Chop, Fish and Chip, Garlic Bread and Mushroom Soup, Rib Eye Steak, Spaghetti Bolognese, just to name a few. Normally, that place would be full of crowds all the time. Either at the end of the month that is during the 'pay day' or just during the weekends, Saturday and Sunday night. But I was so surprised to see that the were no more crowds like before. Before this, that place could be considered as 'happening'. You can see people eating or just for take-away. Or just to hang out meeting friends, while sipping a glass of Fresh Orange or a glass of 'Teh tarik'.

I wonder why...??
Most of the stalls were closed. And very little crowd. Now, the stall operators are looking and waiting for customers to come. Not like before, when they had a lot of customers waiting for their orders to be served. And they themselves had to get extra hands just to meet the customers order.

I wonder why...??
Is it because of our economic situation now, that makes people think twice before eating out? It is just because they have to take into account the cost that they have to bear for eating out, such as petrol and the food bill?

I wonder why...??
Most of the shops are closed. May be they were not able to pay for the rent. There's a possibility that the rent has been increased due to the rise in the price of petrol.

I wonder why...??
When these are going to stop...? When the price of necessities will be controlled.....? When the promise that the price of petrol will not be increased in the near future.... Only those PEOPLE will have the answer to all my curiousity,
