    Default Win win situation?

    Person A told hawker. ".... uncle my sugar cane juice less ice "

    Hawker said "ok add 20cents "

    Person B told hawker "... my sugar cane juice add more ice "

    Hawker said "ok add 20cents "

    As long as you make a request, you need to add 20 cents.

    Ha ha ha

    I experienced this at Ya Kun Bugis yesterday. Asked for tea w less sugar, kena charged more.

    Today at Army Market, I ordered Ice Kachang w no colouring, just the usual Gula Malacca. Kena charged $0.20 more!

    What's the world coming to?

    it is not about less sugar or more sugar, no ice or with ice, as long you customise your order, you are asking for premium service, premium service means you are willing to pay extra for it.

    Maybe we should tell the hawker to tell all tat "Special " means value added service , means extra cost to the company therefore you need to pay extra for saving sugar, saving sugar cane juice, saving coloured ???

    so if you don't wish to pay extra, than just get the norm thing, get the standard package.

    if you want healthier choice, want to save money, best is just eat at home.

    A gives his ice to B and each saves 20 cents.
