...if you had shopped around, you might have found that you could have the Vitacon for SGD75.00, or cheaper... It is called bargaining. You are supposed to shop around. What you described is normal, not only in Singapore, but in Kuala Lumpur,...Hong Kong.... It is THEIR way. Bargain. It is the known "fun" way of shopping. They will usually come down to your price, if it is reasonable, because there is so much competition. You have the receipt. You could have complained to the Singapore Authorities, and the shop keeper would have lost his licelce if he was at fault, and he knew this. In other words, you cheated yourself !
