The bananas are sold 12.99 AUD a kilo ($14.29 ; 52 Saudi Riyals; 585 Pesos) It is normally 1.99 AUD a kilo when there are abundant supply of bananas. The flood in Queensland brought the price of bananas to its can't-afford-level.
I just bought a piece of ginger at 19.99 AUD a kilo ($21.99; 80 Saudi Riyals; 900 Pesos). At this time of year when cough is prevalent, a soothing "salabat" is highly needed (now at a high price).
The other day, I visited a Chinese fish store and bought three pieces of female blue crabs at 13.99 AUD a kilo ($15.39; 56 Saudi Riyals; 630 Pesos). The male blue crabs are priced 12.99 AUD a kilo.
I bought 2 pieces of lemon at 70 cents a piece ($0.77; 2.80 Saudi Riyals; 31.50 Pesos)
IN SPITE of the above, some items are a bargain:
At ALDI, avocados and pears are 99 cents a kilo ($1.09; 4 Saudi Riyals; 45 Pesos)
