What do you think about life in Moscow?
Something might be just hard to believe until you really experience it. According to the latest cost-of-living survey from Mercer Consulting, Moscow now ranks as the world's most expensive city, edging out Tokyo, which held the No. 1 spot for four straight years. Can you imagine that..A luxury two-bedroom in Moscow now rents for $4,000 a month; a CD costs $24.83, and an international newspaper, $6.30, according to Mercer. By comparison, a fast food meal with a burger is a steal at $4.80.

I myself really experience how expensive it is during this trip to Moscow. Well, let's compare the bus fare. In Kursk, it costs 7 rub most but in Moscow, cheapest is 20 rub. Tram fare in Kursk costs 6 rubs while in Moscow 25 Rub. I'd this most terrible experience - do you think how much does it cost to develop 5 passport-sized photos? In Malaysia, instant photo costs around Rm10 or less(which is about 70Rub), but here in Moscow, guess what, it costs 450 Rub! (~Rm 65) I feel like money flows out from my pocket faster than any other thing else here =s

I'd my 3 meals all in MacDonald since it's the cheapest fast food you can get here. Wanna share few pictures taken during the trip.
