My wife is the same way, but she is the one who would handle the funds on the tip end since the is the comptroller in the family. Since she is very frugal she would get upset if I ever paid too much for a tip. As stated above, most restaurants charge a service charge or a VAT [value added tax] to the bill.

When I first arrived, I tipped 10-15% based on service but my wife altered my tipping habit.
We tip p20-50 and not at all if service is non existent!
