Asking for discount in the Philippines is a very common trait of buyers. Unfortunately, when you are non-local, they might raise the price so they can get the jackpot, but you can always say you know how much is the market price from others. Sellers are happy to sell to foreigners and happier if you buy from them. You can always say you already have the item if you wish not to buy.
