    Grab

    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/he...ake-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...80098808700544

    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.

    Becoming a "taxi driver" is not a way to earn a living under stressful driving condition with dim future prospect. In near future, they be replacing with automated car. http://www.straitstimes.com/singapor...-book-vehicles

    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. And here is the report where India drivers are taken for a ride. https://www.ft.com/content/12bf0cce-...c-50ba212dce4d

    Maybe he had USD 1million before but he spent all the money oredi... or he drove porsche 911 and jaguar last time..

    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.

    Summore, it is stated in the job scope that the job may require to work on weekend if there are activities like campus open day, career week or VIP visit...!!

    20k per month driving uber..
    Interesting, isn't it.. ??

    I am happy as a free birdie flying around towns to cities. Mana ada komplain?

    Heck, I am happy to pay for the service render to have hotties sitting beside me showing off thier hot legs. Cheaper than Mama san service at jalan Pudu or Imbi nightclubs. It only cost litres of petrol. Moreover, I am better in nooks and corners of the KL city in my Uberman experience.

    I am stating the facts and figures of those blurred sotong drivers who thinks they are milking money from thier cart.

    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 dun try hard to make people like them but fakes try hard to make people like them.

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

    Genuine people are helpful and share thier experience but fake people only be nice when they have hidden agenda.

    Gross or nett? And it comes without no sick or annual leave public holidays and 711 job. No Christmas bonus and if accidents or car pancit where it means no income or medical benefits.

    Drivers who are contractors to e hailing companies can be lay off at swift email notice if thier acceptance rate or cancellation rate is low in addition from the complaints from riders whether it is truly justified or not. https://www.singaporeuncensored.com/...s-it-to-court/
