    There are lots of illegal vendor near mrt, selling food, and old malay ladies selling curry puffs... we stop buying from them for a good reason, and don't bully them just because they are illegal vendors that doesn't have a good reason for a fair trade.

    We shouldn't buy from them, because their food may get contaminated, and you never know how they get the fruit, how they made their curry puff, and there are chances that the fruits bring germs to our natural habitat or the curry puff make your stomach sick.

    But frankly speaking, if there are around, that's because there are demands, and people buying from them. =)

    If you don't deal with him, you have done what you have to do.
    I am not against illegal vendor, but they have to be fair and honest!

    Haha...cos I have a 5kg rice which I secretly weight it while the argument was happening between he and my mother in law. Guess how much the scale measure? 6.8kg!!

    When I highlighted that his scale was faulty, he got more upset, and throw the money back at us. Initially he demanded $15 for the "3kg" durians, but we decided not to buy, and since he has open one durian and it wasn't good, out of good will, my mother in law gave him $10 and wanted to leave. So after I highlighted he has a special scale, he reacted violently! Something must be fishy right!

    give newpaper a call telling them about the vendor and how he is cheating people. For all you know, you will be an owner of a brand new mobile phone for giving them a tip off. This way, it gets reported in the media (even though it is not that widely read) and you may get a new mobile phone.
