Rice crisis

During the weekend, I went to supermarket had some foods supply for next week, when pass by the rice section. Damn, lot of the cheaper local rice is out of stock... its unbelievable for a country which 70% rice supply by local, 30% import from neighbour countries.

While the news said the rice shortage will not effective badly as another countries, but what I seem in supermarket is totally difference. I still can't understand why 70% of the cheaper local rice is unavailable in the store, and I have spending more to get the imported rice.

Is it local rice has really shortage of supply because the bad weather or waiting for opportunities to get better price gaining the profit? We will see.
