Seen in Singapore: Nice melons

No, you’re not seeing things - that’s $80 SGD for a rockmelon.

My local supermarket has a huge selection of fruit air-freighted from Japan at mind-melting expense - $16 for a single peach, $100 for a kilo of grapes, $20 for four mandarins, etc. etc. etc. - but the rockmelons are probably the most egregious.
