Uber has finally bungkus thier entire SEA operation to Grab after the sell off the China operation to DiDi couple years ago. I would be changing my Uber black tuxedo attire to go green suited as Grabman soon. Would be sharing my up close and personal experience as a driver and rider in the Grab platform.

In the last 10 days in Langkawi and KL, I used GRAB.

During the Taxi days in KL, a normal trip between A & B would cost RM28 to RM36 is now only RM11.

Besides I still can award Stars and comments.

Yes, GRAB is the way to go

E hailing from Uber to Grab do not make ringgit and sense after taking into account of all costing into factor. From petrol to engine oil, car maintenance and car depreciation drained all the profit into longkang. In my 1 year of driving, two tyres kena puncit to 8 tyres being changed. Kena bang twice and 1 saman aeroplane. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/heres-how-much-uber-drivers-really-make-2017-12-01

The apps will direct you to pick up riders from 10 to 20 km radius, only to give them 1km ride sometimes with fare of RM3. Minus that and the toll to cross the line, it is like giving free charity ride at your own expense. if you are blurred sotong. And Grab do not compensate you for the pickups and if the riders do not turn up to take your ride upon arrival. Worse, you will be penalised for the cancellation.

It makes ringgit if you wanna to pick up riders to and fro to work or home where somebody is chipping in with the fares. And it makes sense to pick up hotties if you are free or damsel in distress to get them safe and sound home. Imagine the grateful riders care enough to give you 5 stars and even lengthy comments for the riding service. Priceless. https://www.facebook.com/zinglicious/posts/1780098808700544

About 10 percent of the riders tipped with only 1% Malaysian tipped. God bless you if you do. And the opportunity for Kiwanis club charity if you are tipping me for a good course and I Janji Chapatti to Teh Tarik with you if you are a hottie tipster.

Gone are the days when Uber to Grab started the operations to recruit MY drivers where they reportedly made RM20K with 10 hours of pickups incentives and rates. After that, the new johnny comes lately being sucked from RM2.95 to RM0.95 per KM rate and insensitivity incentive.

Well... someone think he should earn 20k per month as a taxi driver. I don't know how and why people can think they are so special.. ??

I applied a private uni nearby for the position of Senior Lecturer (School of Engineering and Applied Science), the online recruitment agency replied with a notice for interview appointment but the salary offered is less than RM20k per month.

Someone again try hard ....very hard to stalk with misleading hips and hops with never ending vengeance particularly in the threads which I started.

His comprehension should be good enough but he choose to spit snake venom where he twisted about Porsche or Jaguar.

iSayman - I wasnt driving Uber 5 years back then and that statement should have clearly pointed out other drivers at that time whether they are millionaire or graduate with 1st class honor. And insinuating Jaguar or kuda drivers should be paid Rm20,000 by Uber is uncalled for. It is just not cheeky but deliberate not budiman to be snake-like in the bushes.

BTW, there are many non graduates who are millionaires to billionaires who earn more. My brother in law who never attended high school bought a brand new Audi on cash and owned many pigeon holes for rental. So are the other friend who dun even write Bahasa to Mandarin or English but owns factories to plantation lands. Best of all, the couple who own a motorbike shop can afford to hold dinner at 5 stars hotel and donated every angpows to Tzu Chi charity. Yet they are budiman about it without crying out loud for attention or bitch about it.

Signs of fake news or Budiman I am aware of from my experience......

Genuine people dun brag but fake people try show off all the time.

Genuine people are not attention seeker but fake people always desperate for attention.

Genuine people share thier experiences while fake people brag about them

Genuine people respect everybody but fake people only respect those who are somebody who are powerful.

Genuine people admire others and praise them but fakes often criticise others so they can seen to look great.

In my Uber apps, I can drive 3 cars whenever I choose to using 5 phones with the apps. This is useful as the battery may dried out in couple of usage as the apps eats up power with Uber and waze running. I tried using plugged in but it blown up two of phones circuits until beyond repair.

In Grab, I can only select to drive 1 car only with just 1 single phone. Even if I insert the SIM card into another phone device, it doesnt work and have to call for customer support to rectify it. The response from Grab may takes up to 5 days but Uber response is almost immediate within minutes to hours to resolve issues from system glitches or in correct payment to making riders complaints.

What is the shame of rending service while I am enjoying it and getting compliments from the riders? IMHO it is an honor to help damsel in distress at 1 to 3 am working overtime as programmer or accountant apprentice at 1st Avenue Bandar Utama to offer safe ride home.

Best of all, there are requests from regular riders to pick them up if I am still awake at that hour where they feel safe and sound to thier rented homes from 1st Avenue office block. Sometimes they even belanja kopi or tarik teh as a sign of gesture OTW back. Now that is sweet and priceless.

Yesterday, my GRAB driver was a young Chinese lass.

She should be only 25, pretty and driving skills boleh tahan in KL roads.

For some reasons I agreed to share this GRAB for the experience which I sort of regrets later.

The other 2 persons had to go to Jalan Ipoh, not too much of a distance from going to Jalan Duta.

My fare was rm11 from KLCC and other 2 boys were picked up from a hotel to Jalan Ipoh and was rm7. Really very cheap.

Yes, kesian this girl and I gave her a good tip

By the stroke of a change from Uber app which I had intended to switch on I turned on Grab app instead, I probably saved a life!!!

After dropping my wifey at Kepong for a dinner function, I headed for home to pick my dotter for tuition. Instead, she called and prefered her classmate mother to take them. Feeling bored, I was playing around with my Uber and Grab. Immediately there was a request ride. Thought of canceling the request because it was still peak jam time at 7pm but since I am free to cruise , why not? I looked at the pickup and the silly waze showed a longer route with 14 minutes ETA. Heck, I could do it under 8 to 10 minutes for 3 km since it is at my neighbourhood.

Upon arrival, the rider got into my car breathless and complaining of chest pain. I asked where he is going as the address was vague in the app. " hospital selayang". I calmed him down and assured that I get there soonest possible. " you are lucky enough to get me as I know the way to pick you sooner than expected and I know how to get you fast to Selayang ER. " "I am not sure what you have but to panic would only worsen your ability to breathe probably. try to breathe slowly and steady. Trust me , I know a bit about medical emergence."

About 5 minutes later, he stabilised a fair bit. I told him about medical expectation and he nodded to say "I understand a bit as I am a Chinese Sinseh. Thank you." Another 5 minutes more we reached ER where I got the nurses and told them the guy needed immediate medical attention in a wheelchair as he may have a cardiac arrest.

Phew, I even told him that he is not to die in my car because I am one of the top rated e hailing driver. And I was send to his pickup by a surprise turn of luck on Grab. And I can get him to ER to stay alive!!!

He even had time and strength to reach for his purse to pay the fare and thanked me.

This must be the most satisfying e hailing or e healing ride for me unexpectedly in Sejarah Hari Ini. I am honored to play a part to help the hapless guy struggling for breath. And the fact he did not died in my ride. Hallelujah to Amentaubat......PRICELESS.

Just asked a GRAB Chinese driver last night about that claim of RM20K monthly income.

"Possible?" I asked

"Possible, even RM30K is possible." He said

"How?" I asked

1. buy many sim cards.
2. Have many emails
3. Have a few phones

This can only be done during PROMOTION within 5 km distance.

Use 1 phone with 1 sim card, call for a cab.

You answer & take the route.

Once you reached that destination, use next sim & call for a cab.

You answer & take that route.

Keep doing this and money keep rolling in from your Cab Company and that is how 20k to 30k monthly income is possible.

I think the missing link of this driver story is the number of phones (callers).

A few phones cannot generate enough transactions to achieve 20k per month. It cannot be the same few callers (same phone numbers) calling within the 5km distance whole night and day, everyday.

How many phones or phone numbers can the driver use to generate that kind of RM20,000 fee ??

opulant

another missing link is the payment part from the "customers".

The driver need to pay to himself who pretend as different customers.

How the payment mode and transactions recorded in the app ??

I haven't used uber or grab service before. I'm not sure whether cash is allowed as payment mode.

If not allow, how many credit card or debit cards the driver must use in order to generate enough transaction for rm20k ?? It must be hundreds of card and can this be possible to have so many credit/debit cards ?

If cards are used, he is practically paying money to the e-hailing company, not to himself and this outflow of money cannot be refunded.

Worse is as a customer let say he pays rm20 via card ... but as a driver he definitely get less than rm20 from the e-hailing company.

No matter how many somersaults that Monkey King try to do in his journey to the west to grab the quest is mission impossible to avoid the detection of the creator and developer of the apps.
And no way that guy with that secret recipe can make 20 pounded durian cake.

The pickups from e hailing is based on algorithm which is a process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or problem solving operations.

The best sauce of informations on how tips and tricks how much you can grab are from the open book in low yat .com and closed groups in FB. There you can find how many been fried as aspiring e drivers trying to outwit the system to make extra bucks. You can also find out how many real drivers predicaments with the rates and navigations which makes them lose monies in pickup to types of riders that stress you in pickups. In 1 closed FB group for Uber drivers, there are about 80,000 of them from all over MY country where there are constant updates within minutes.

Once I got into trouble of asking a Uber rider to book a ride to KLIA for himself at his Mont Kiara home and I was hauled up for questioning. I parked near his home location and got the ping from him after ignoring two other pings. He wanted to me to pickup as I probably amazed him once getting to KLIA in the shortest time without speeding over limit and his payment was in credit card and enjoyed my company. And the Uber is making 25% commission from that ride and I am not really cheating at all in my selective pickup in the pakatan deal.

After that, I still pick him up and his friends but on cash only with my own pigeon pickup apps.

Just thinking aloud why that monkey god disclose his secret recipe to a anonymous rider how to make a killing over 20K? A fake would try to get the attention to boost his ego. That is my theory to my journey from Uber west to Grab pickups in the east.

There are ways and means to maximise income and to cut unnecessary costs like paying tolls just to pick up riders to avoid waze navigations that sometimes waste your gas and time.

In my early days as Uberman, I was cruising around like a blind batman while trusting Waze navigation apps like gospel truth or absurd pickup location which is miles away. Not anymore.....I get smart over the period with my real experience and other drivers experiences in Low yat to FB sauce.

The other problems of self pigeon app pickup is the incentives being forfeited as it is not recorded in Uber quest rides where i get extra Rm100 to Rm150 per week. But then the target is sky high with 80 rides a week!

And my riders cannot leave thier marks on the apps with 5 stars rides and badges of honor to compliments.

However, I get paid directly in cash and without 25% fee from the riders who have had become up close personal friends. And they are happy that it goes to charities.

... A commun ity leader in USJ once posted she had a friend whose CCard got charged £ 5000 or was it £ 20,000 or maybe in Shringgit after coverting from £ , in Uber services in London..and her friend was in USj all along when the charges were incurred....Dont play play.

Really.... OMG :eek:

I have been usung credit card for almost ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING every time in overseas from USD1 to USDxxxx.

Here is one example. ¥110 is like USD1.03 or around Shringgit 3.9 !! I think it is for a bottle of mineral water... :p

The CC slips after a trip are beyond counting. When I received the CC statement, I have to ask a big favor from my beloved friend/assistant. She will help me to sort the slips according to chronological order and sometimes even arrange them to categories like food, transport, misc... :D



p/s : where can I find such sorting service after retirement !! :(

Last night, going to Portofino, Bangar, by GRAB, a Malay lass was our driver.

I asked about GRAB.

She said "not bad" and it would have been better if she does not have to rent a car. According to her, the car rental costs her RM500 weekly. Therefore she has to pay RM2,000 for the rental per month.

Aiya, then how many hours are you driving. She said 12 to 14 hrs.

So in a month, she can only get total about Rm4,700.

So hard working...Gave her a good tip.

You trust her story !!

She can get a new proton or Myvi with less than RM1000 instalment per month.

Maybe less than RM600/month for a 2nd hand proton or Myvi.

Wonder why she wanna rent a car for RM2000 per month ??

Whatever it will be, with such competition, it gives the consumers more choice to pick between GRAB, MyCar, Taxi and that most expensive Blue Cab.

That Blue Cab eg in KLCC, you have to give RM5 to the Taxi kiosk before you can get into one.

It is a total ripped off by Blue Cab. Why I said this is because a distance of A (KLCC) to B cost costs about RM35 + RM5 for that Taxi Kiosk, total is RM40. Same distance by GRAB is only RM11.00

Bye, bye, Taxi, Blue Cab.

BTW, I know that Blue Cab is supposed to be higher class. That RM5 charge by that kiosk is a shame and a daylight robbery.

When they introduced Blue Cab, it was RM2 at the kiosk.

If you look at KLCC, the queue of empty Blue Cabs is very long. Hardly any tourists use them. I noticed PRC Big 6s use GRABs even in KLIA and KLIA2.

All that man at the kiosk do is ask where you want to go. He writes it down and pass it to the 1st Cab. Less than a minute work and that is RM5.

That service is as good as a Doctor's pay.

Crooks they are

You are probably refering to the ex-Soviet Union Eastern European countries. True, the Soviet era kept them backward when the only money spend were on armaments. Malaysia is way better than them in many areas, but no country is perfect.

I visited the Triumph Malaysia showroom this afternoon. Wow! the range of bikes are amazing. All the models have modern mechanicals and features like ABS and ride-by-wire but some are retro designs.

I especially like the Triumph Bobber with a 1200 cc engine. They weren't such nice bikes when I was riding in the 1990s.
