You Happy, Me Happy, Buddha Happy

A real, down-to–earth, quasi honest South-East Asian market. This is fair dunkum tourist shopping.

Here, the huge smiles take the sting out of being stung. Who cares if you pay a bit extra? It’s still cheap compared to back home – and good natured haggling can be a lot of fun.

On reaching a price, I tell them: “You happy, Me happy, Buddha happy!” And I slip them a generous tip anyway …
