Up! Up! Up!

My girls’ choice of milk powder increase price again! Increase up to more than 10% some more! :( Yesterday went to Chinese Medical Hall, only realised the increase of price. If I knew earlier, sure I will stock up some tin at home. *sigh* This Enfa group milk powder never fail to “upgrade” their price EVERY YEAR! Each time was increased up to 10 ~ 12%...but mummy's salary do not have so much increase ler! Sob sob…now I wish I could have breast milk, FOC! :P

The new price also mean new packing & new look for the tin. They claimed that there is new ingredient called KOLINA in new tin, I yet to study what is KOLINA, also don't know what's benefit too! Does all these new ingredients really help in kids development? Or just cause the kids more active? :P Ever think of to change brand, but the girl very choosy, they can differentiate the smell and taste. Each time when I tried new formula for them, I hide the tin or box, but they still can tell it’s not their normal brand! *shake head*

Damien is also the Enfa series milk drinker! :)

Not only that, it's like forever out of stock over here in SGP, we had to buy more to keep stock.

Don't dare to change brand also, cos his taste buds also super sensitive..;p

Sabrina said...

Keith is also on Enfa range. Don't dare to change milk as his tummy is quite sensitive. Everything goes up in price except for our salary. Sob..sob...

Jan said...

Rayner used to drink Enfa when he was younger but have since switched to Mamil cos RayAnne can't drink enfa....everytime she drinks enfa, she vomits like a merlion....

Ya, experience is enfa milk is always increasing in price.....also cannot remember how many times their prices have gone up. And not alot of place carry enfa.....

Yes yes, raises hands and feet to agree...everything increasing, bus fare, taxi fare, milk, school fees except our salaries....

Hmm, kids here in the states after the age of 1 drinks regular milk. But then again, the milk in Msia is very different. Milk here is creamy and tastes very very good. Regular milk is way cheaper than formula/powder milk.

Adrian & Alvan said...

apa brand? I change brand with Adrian's milk powder liao..
Pity us parents hor

Zara's Mama said...

Your girls taking Enfagrow and Enfakid huh?

Zara taking Enfagrow. I didn't know price hiked.

I also dare not change milk for Zara, although tempted. After changed already she doesn't like..laki waste money!

magictree said...

My boys are also on Enfa. My husband always 'threaten' to buy cheap milk when the boys are naughty...

Now that they have the 'box packaging' , it is cheaper...phew!

Jesslyn said...

blurblur,
that will be scary if one day couldn't find enfa milk, if me sure will stock up too!

egghead,
how to blame? someone might say: our thing ah still cheaper than other country wor! lu suka lu beli, tak suka pergi jauh jauh.

sabrina,
enfa seem like very popular among us hor!

jan,
Hi, welcome to my blog!:)
Mamil Gold also not cheap ler!

vivien,
Why after 1 must drink regular milk? cannot take formula?

rachel,
Enfagrow & Enfakids lor!

zara's mama,
I just knew it yesterday only.
Look for sample first b4 changing.

magictree,
box packaging also increase price mah! Though still cheaper than tin type.

shoppingmum said...

Luckily my boy's not taking Enfa. He doesn't like the taste. He's on goat's milk now, since it's not so popular, the price won't increase gua...

Vien said...

jess, regular milk cheaper mah! and the baby's stomach can digest the regular ones. Oh, powder milk not very popular here la. Only give baby powder milk under the age of 1 coz they are mfgr just to suit the younger babies' sensitive stomachs.

Jesslyn said...

shoppingmum,
i think goat milk will up price too but not as high as enfa milk.

vien,
oh! ic. Here asian still give kids drink even they are 6-7!

1+2mom said...

My kids are Enfa fans too..i also dun dare to change cause scare waste money, they are sensitive taste. I try same sample of Pedisure for my son, 1st try he gave me back and said :"i dunwan, something wrong with the milk it not same."..haha.
I just stock up so dunno it change packing and increase price..thanks for telling us :)

michelle said...

Ha, that is their strategy, wanna raise price, always do a new packaging. How silly!

AsleyLee said...

Oh,price increased again?
I have 2 dozens still in box, emm...means that Jo can't have this nutrition called KOLINA lo. I wonder whether can buy a new packaging here or not?! So kiasu...

michelle said...

By the way, I told Emily that the milk is tiggr milk and she drank her new milk. Now she is asking for tiggr milk at times. I am slowly changing her milk too.

Jesslyn said...

1+2mom,
yeah, they have sensitive nose too!

michelle,
in their mind, this is a way to satisfy we customers!

Huisia,
2 dozen is a lot ler...whether KOLINA or not, doesn't matter la as u already SAVE some money there! :P

IMMomsDaughter said...

Jess - thanks for the update. I usually buy the 700gm box type which is cheaper. Last week, there was a promo on the 900gm tin (Value pack) and I only buy 2 tins. Now, please excuse me, I got out to supermarket & buy a couple more cans. Hope they still have stock :)

Jesslyn said...

Imm,
I also bought 700gm refill pack, but all packing was increase price accordingly. Now u remind me to look for old packing which is still with old price...LOL

HMom said...

Yes, the price went up recently. I get my stock from a nurse who sells it slightly cehaper. But she does not have ENfa range, so I get the Gainplus by Abbot. Just as expensive. Luckily milk for 3 years and above is cheaper
