MEDIACORP ACTOR TIPS HELPFUL STAFF AT IKEA, DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY HE WAS REJECTED

Today I was furniture shopping for my new place at Ikea. I think everyone knows by now that ikea is a self service mall. I was there with my pregnant wife (in a wheel chair) and Baby Aden ( on a stroller with my helper ) and I had 3 carts worth of packages to pick up and pay for. A ikea staff (Singaporean boy from SP) was helping me with some of the more complicated items and he offered to help me pick out and pack some of the boxes, he even helped me push 2 of the carts to the payment counter. Even thou he had a sian sian vibe throughout ( A Singaporean quirk I think ) he was actually really helpful and went out of his way to help me. So I offered him a tip. Which... You guessed it. He rejected it, very nicely I must add. The point I'm trying to make here is, why reject the tip? Is it rude to or "frown upon" to take a tip in Singapore? Singapore's service standard is horrible to say the least, and people are in the service line to make a living. So why reject a good will tip when you clearly deserve it?

LGBT ACTIVISTS HOUNDING IKEA EQUALLY INTOLERANT OF DIVERSITY

In this case, IKEA incorporated Mr Khong’s magic show as part of its loyalty programme of discounted rates for members. That, it seems, is enough to rile the LGBT activists who show themselves to be as intolerant of other people’s views as they say other people are of theirs. Does the community intend to hound Mr Khong’s magic show wherever he goes – and will corporate sponsors pull back because they don’t want any heat from the vocal lobby?
