MILO, 1.25KG TIN | This Australia-manufactured cocoa-flavoured powdered drink is a fixture in many of our lives. It retails at a whopping S$23.70 at Fairprice, but at a mere fraction of AUD12 (S$13.67) in Australia’s Coles supermarket.

A GLASS OF HOUSE WINE | We know the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) report compares the prices of a bottle of table wine, but that is not quite level ground for Singapore’s wining crowd (prices of wine bottle fluctuate, even before the alcohol tax came into effect).
