So I did some calculations comparing the 6CPA's AHI vs the 5CPA's Pharmacy Markup...
Old pack of up to & including $30.00 @ 15% = $0.15 ($1) to $4.50 ($30)
Old pack of $30.01 to $45.00 = $4.50
Old pack of $45.01 to $180 @ 10% = $4.50 to $18.00
New for all up to $180.00 = $3.49
So with the AHI, for prices up to $180, pharmacies will be making LESS for all items above $30.00.
Old pack of $180.01 to $450.00 = $18.00
New pack of $180.01 to $450.00 = $3.49 (on an $180.01 item) to $12.94 ($3.49 + $9.45)
Old pack of $450.01 to $1,750.00 @ 4% = $18.00 to $70.00
New pack of $450.01 to $1,750.00 = $12.94 ($3.49 + $9.45) to $61.44 ($3.49 + $54.95)
Old pack of $1,750.01 and up = $70.00
New pack of $1,751.00 to $2,089.70 = $61.44 ($3.49 + $54.95) to $70.33 ($3.49 + $66.84)
So with the AHI, pharmacies are losing a lot of the 'in between $70.00' fees they had under the 5CPA pharmacy markup.
Old & New Pack of $2,089.71 and up = No change, $70.00 per dispense.

- Cooking without a recipe, The Food Canon
By pre-empting society’s punitive measures and by self-flagellating, the narcissist is actually saying: 'If I am to suffer unjustly, it will be only by my own hand and no one else's.'
I got a wok!
And I didn't set my apartment on fire! (My last personal encounter with a wok resulted in a fire - just a tiiiiny one - in the middle of my wok, and failed Home Economics exam.)
AND I managed to make *proper* Cantonese sweet and sour pork omg! I was so surprised that it all got eaten without any documentation. :P
Not sure I would make it again though... so much *work*! I guess it depends on how desperate I get to find real sweet and sour pork done right in Melbourne. I found only one place, that did it right ONE time, and then they changed the darn cook! Hrmph.
>.> Now, about that sauce... I hate tomatoes, so I had to find some other way to get a nice, authentic-tasting sauce... (I don't care about authentic ingredients, I just care about authentic taste.)
Behold - my cheaty non-tomato sweet and sour sauce!
As usual, I didn't actually measure anything, so this is me thinking of what I madly shook into the bowl and approximating. :P
2 large oranges (juice and zest)
4 tbsp caster sugar
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
4 tsp cornstarch
3 drops red food colouring, 1 drop yellow (totally optional, it doesn't look traditionally 'red' enuff without the colouring, cause no evil tomatoes)
Tiny bit of salt (optional - only needed if you think the stuff you're putting it on may not be savoury enuff.)
That's it really... >.>

Alas! I couldn't fit the whip in there nicely somehow. XD
