Last time I visited Dhaka, Bangladesh (this year), I was told, not to even mention any amount (in any discussion) unless its 100+ crore (TK) and embarass myself. I was also told that 1 koti taka Manuser (Dhaka's) pokete pokete thake as pocket money.
The way I saw people (in Dhaka) waste/spend money that I witnessed during my visit to Dhaka, it supports what my relative said to me.
Comming from USA, everything looked soo expensive in Dhaka this time... from restaurants, to shoping stores, health care/hospital cost, land/appartment cost ( 6 crore for each katha land), supports what I was told.
Now the story outside dhaka (for the rest of the country) may be different, but Dhaka is indeed an expensive place to live and money flies there.
