Cultural Insight
John: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Camille: In the Philippines, giving a tip is somewhat expected in restaurants. If the bill includes a service charge, it's okay not to give a tip. Otherwise, 20 pesos, 50 pesos, or 100 pesos is a common tip amount. 100-peso tips are considered high.
