I actually asked my in-laws the same question when I came here for the first time and when the in-laws are out and about, they said they usually tip whatever coins they got back from paying the bill, typically between 2 and 20 pesos, if they tip at all.

My wife, on the other hand, is on either side of the spectrum. If she liked the service, she leaves quite a hefty tip. If she wasn't pleased (for whatever reason), no tip at all. No middle ground with her. Her philosophy goes towards all kinds of people...waiters, bag boys, taxi drivers, etc..
raconner? I kinda like the approach of ur lady already, black and white, good or not, tip or not.She has amazingly percetptive vision, includes humanitites, then lays the $ down.

Gotta' love that!
