• Just Grab My Ass

    I shared my experience on Grab & Uber about 2 months back.  Actually I am not a fan of both. If I can, I would walk or drive. So I went on Grab this afternoon, since Retna already at the meeting place, I opted to take public ride so no need to drive 2 cars there. Requested Uber at first, but could not find the ride, after taking 3 minutes, I think I would best get a ride from Grab, which then I switched over. Lo and behold, the Grab driver picked up my ride request and came in like 5 minutes.  Quite efficient.  Was impressed. The Grab app prompted,…

  • Cab Firm, Uber-ly

    I just learn that the drivers in the Uber app would also rate the passengers, instead of just one way kind of rating system.  I think it is only fair should the drivers only got to know who they would be fetching, sending to. Should the passenger is one that causing massive issue with most ride, then driver could choose not to pick up the job. I remember using Uber when in Hong Kong, which I enjoyed very much with the services there, more so, when a Tesla turned up to fetch the passengers.  It seems very common in Hong Kong where Uber drivers choose electric cars for the business.…

  • When uber-grab-disrupted

    Uber is originally a German word, means denoting an outstanding or supreme example of someone, or something.  For example, an uber-cool bar, self proclaimed uber-bitch. Grab, means grasp or seize suddenly and roughly. So we could use uber-grab, would means supremely sudden to rough. As a consumer, I remember clients asking me, you sure about taking Uber or Grab to airport, not the taxi?  My answer is always a firmly yes.  They acknowledge when we submitted our claims using Uber or Grab. Until the most recent family trip to land of the Rising Sun, I was convicted when a night before the flight, I booked an Uber XL, then we…

  • My Uber Experience

    I started using Uber service on Sep 6, 2014.  I took the ride service when I was coming back from Citroen Service Centre at Glenmarie.  Since then I have pretty much using Uber, more than Grab.  I believe in taking ride in a comfort of a family ride, or similar. Comfort, does not refer to business class nor luxury car rides.  I mean the comfort of a driver who would drive in the manner that he is driving his loved ones, family members, friends to places. Or I think I may be wrong in my own perception about Uber and Grab rides. About 20% of the Uber and Grab rides…

  • Temptations

    I was approached by some Taiwanese asking if I am a hairstylist. I said, "Barber." #Taipei #Taiwan #MRT A post shared by Samuel Tan (@hisamueltan) on Feb 25, 2016 at 4:43am PST Recently in a Uber ride, I was asked an interesting question by the driver. “Have you tried to have sex with any other woman other than your wife?” “Have you thought of having sex with other women after you married your wife?” I am not going to share the replies here, LOL. Go, imagine my replies 🙂 What I want to highlight is that, why men or even women could not handle temptation.

  • Tried Uber

    I am always fond for public transport, more so when I could get into one which I could walk and save some time between meetings for work or just doing my own errands. Where I am living and working at #welcometopuchong land, there is not much public transport averrable within the walking distance.  The nearest would be 3km away, which can imagine how hot and dangerous it would be walking on the roads.  More so, the Puchong roads have limited or no shoulder walk way.  So, pretty much we are walking on faith.
