Running To & Fro All Over The Island

Joining the taxi queue at Compass Point.

I had quitted my job of almost 12 years since 31 December 2008.

I've been driving taxi since 05 January 2009.

It's something which i enjoy doing. Driving people to where they need to get to.

It's not easy to make a living this way though.

It came out in the news recently that most people are taking less taxis nowadays because of the economic crunch. People are taking more of buses and MRTs instead of taxis.

It's especially tough if you have to bear the costly rental of $100 a day all alone by yourself as a hirer without any relief driver to share both the costly burden and burdensome cost.

Need to drive for at least about 5 to 6 hours on a normal weekday just to clock the $100 breakeven sum.

Going to switch to be a relief driver instead so i would only pay for $50 rental a day instead of the hefty $100.
