Very true people who visit restaurant and coffee house karaoke bar will give tips generously whereas when he or she patronized at Hawker center no one bother to give to the poor old auntie uncle cleaner a dollar or two!

In some countries, it seems that the 'poor' vendors are the ones chopping people

I usually will bargain to a price level seemed fair in value to the item I am buying. So I am guilty in that sense that I do bargain with these pitiful vendors. But having seen that video above, it hit me with much guilt as I did the same thing as that other character in the video. It is true we gave tips and sorts when I visited expensive eating places without any thoughts at all, without thinking of the other poor guy trying hard to just make a survivalist life.

It actually depend on situation. If you are at a tourist attraction and buying things like clothings, or others, we tend to bargain because the asking price is almost always very high. But for food or drinks I usually don't bargain. Very Happy

Come to think of it, food never has a place for bargaining TDO. If you bargain in the case of food, I dare not think what they might do to the food you ordered while preparing it behind your back.
