Just as stock market speculators lose their heads when stock prices start to rise, aunties preparing for Chinese New Year have to keep a close watch on bak kwa prices, which climb heavenwards in the weeks preceding CNY. Fail to provide your CNY guests with a free flow of bak kwa and shame will fall upon their family, causing their children to receive below-market-rate ang baos.

Most of the shops we surveyed have plans to make one final price hike next week just in time for CNY, so if you haven’t started stocking up yet, this weekend is the time to do it, since prices look set to change on Monday. Here are the current bak kwa prices at the time of writing.

In my previous life, I was a property lawyer who spent most of my time struggling to get out of bed or stuck in peak hour traffic. These days, as a freelance commercial writer, I work in bed, on the beach, in parks and at cafes, all while being really frugal. I like helping other people save money so they can stop living lives they don't like.
