Indian-looking 7-eleven store clerk tries to speak Mandarin to two middle-aged Chinese-looking women. They respond in English by saying that they only speak Cantonese.

This is the sales outlet of Jenny Bakery (yeah, no apostrophe-s) at Mirador Mansions, Hong Kong. Indeed, I had to line up together with a large number of PRC Chinese, all stuffing their trolleys with a dozen cookie boxes each. I bought one.
