JP asked me for more Ang Pow..TWICE!!!
I read the forums before my solemnization that ang pows are in the range of $28 -$48.
My wife and I decided to give our solemnizor $48 and while we were in the midst of tea ceremony, the JP asked one of our helpers to ask me out..
"Mr Chan, yes?" He said "you may have forgotten to include my transportation in the ang pow".
I felt so pai seh hearing it and went back immediately to give him another ang pow of $20.
To my surprise, he asked for me again while I was still in the midst of tea ceremony..
I was thinking to myself.."what now?"
He said "City to here is at least $60..don't tell me you don't know".
I was shocked to hear that...but just gave him what he requested for so that we can proceed with our joyous occasion.
ROM should do quality control on JP..not one who treat solemnizing as a fee based business.
WARNING: Pls do not engage him!

According to ROM, guideline for transport is between $50-100.
My JP did ask for:
- transport of ard $100
- token of appreciation
It is ex to get married outside ROM. Sigh..

wow. But if one were to give $60 which is within the range, will they ask for more?

since they also haf to set aside time to perform their duties on the big day, angbao still must give...but not to undercut him/her either...not very nice somehow..ultimately, if u think it's necessary to add on extra for the whatever parking/etc, it's up to individual preference.
no point let the supposed miscom to ruin the big day. in any case, the ROM suggestion is just a guidline for reference...

My 2nd ang pow would have already covered within the range but my JP still asked for more..
So the ans is Yes, may ask for more.

I have feedback to ROM and they called to apologize and mentioned that they will "highlight" to our JP.

This sounds quite ridiculous. Thank you for letting us know the name of the JP!
