TAKE A LOOK-Asia inflation: Prices in Japan, Singapore accelerate in Nov

     Japan's households spent more than expected in November while consumer
inflation ticked up and the jobless rate hit a fresh 24-year low, offering the
central bank some hope an economic recovery will drive up inflation to its 2
percent target.
     The nationwide core consumer price index (CPI), which includes oil goods
but excludes volatile fresh food prices, rose 0.9 percent in November from a
year earlier, government data showed on Tuesday, marking the 11th straight month
of gains.
    Separately, Singapore's headline consumer price index rose a slightly faster
than expected 0.6 percent in November from a year earlier as private road
transport costs edged higher.
