Seberang Perai, Penang

Neighbourhood Review


Simpang Ampat is a town located right in the middle of mainland Penang. Simpang Ampat is a rather quaint town, close to Junjung River, with boats docked at the riverside, providing rather decent photo opportunities. Simpang Ampat can be considered something of a sub-urban town, a picturesque vision rich with both new and old. The town consists of mostly landed residences, with a demographic of those older in age.

Simpang Ampat is surrounded by smaller townships, which also makes for an abundance of amenities. Within Simpang Ampat and its surroundings are a number of schools, including an international school that is 4 minutes away from the town centre. It is also a common sight to see mini markets, sundry shops, eateries, and restaurants in town, catering to the population.

The traffic in Simpang Ampat can sometimes be rather congested, due to the small size of the roads, and the volume of cars passing during peak hours. However, given that most amenities or are within a short distance from each other, residents who live in the town can run errands or go through daily living without too much of a hassle.

The North-South Expressway (NSE) cuts through the town, and is one of the main routes connecting Simpang Ampat to other towns, such as Bukit Mertajam and Seberang Perai. Aside from that, the route also links to the first and second Penang bridges. Simpang Ampat is also only 25km away from Butterworth via the NSE and the Butterworth Outer Ring Road (BORR).

A consumer price index (CPI) measures changes in the price level of a market basket of consumer goods and services purchased by households. (Wikipedia)

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) line shows an increment in prices of essential goods on a yearly basis, while the Percentage Changes line shows the level of changes in price increments over the years. For example, a dip in the CPI line may indicate a low level of price increment as compared to the previous year while a surge in CPI line shows a high level of price increment as compared to the previous year.

The above graph shows 1.742% of price changes in essential goods such as rice, meat and tobacco between the years 2011 and 2012, while increasing in difference to 2.093% in 2013. Prices of essential goods then increasing to 3.169% in the year 2014 while surging by 2.529% in 2015.
