Cheras is known for its amazing food, infamous traffic, and is self-contained. This is not surprising, given that it is a developed and sprawling township. It is both a suburb and a district, which straddles both the states of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

This township was once just a small and sleepy tin mining town that was home to a mere 500 residents. However, due to overpopulation in Kuala Lumpur over the years, Cheras was gradually developed into the metropolis it is today. Cheras is known to offer affordable housing closer to the Kajang area where people can easily manage to rent/buy a considerably large terrace house. The residential units however increase tremendously in price as they move closer to the Ampang area.

A usual irate comment by motorists is that Cheras is the cause of all traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur, due to the high density of residents living in the town and the lack of roads connecting the township to the city. Residents of Cheras find it a norm to leave home for work before the sun rises and reach home from work after the sun sets. Nevertheless, property development in Cheras never ceases due to the affordability of the properties in the community.

To top it off, Cheras is an ultra-vibrant and self-sufficient township. This is proven by the abundance of shopping malls: MyTOWN Shopping Centre, BMC Mall, VIVA Shopping Mall, EkoCheras Mall, Cheras LeisureMall, and Sunway Velocity Mall. Cheras is also home to a number of education centres as well as numerous entertainment spots to serve its mass population.

Cheras is famous for its amazing food, from traditional Chinese food to artisan cafes. It is home to everything from melt-in-your-mouth char siew to oozing cheese naans and mind-boggling nasi lemak, Cheras has it all. Healthcare in the area includes Columbia Asia Private Hospital Malaysia, BP Diagnostic Centre, and Pantai Hospital Cheras.

Cheras is where affordability meets convenience. Cheras dwellers hardly have to leave their township to find what they’re looking for, be it a craving for spicy LaLa or dependable healthcare.

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 1.363% of price changes in essential goods such as rice, meat and tobacco between the years 2011 and 2012, while increasing in difference to 1.633% in 2013. Prices of essential goods then increasing to 3.308% in the year 2014 while surging by 3.019% in 2015.

While the prices of essential goods have shown a variation in the Percentage Changes, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) on the other hand indicates a reality of ever increasing prices in essential goods with increments between the years 2011 - 2015 at 102.7 in 2011, 104.1 in 2012, 105.8 in 2013, 109.3 in 2014, 112.6 in 2015.
