      Old lady: Ah dee, i waiting for cab for almost an hour liao

      Guan: Nvm, i will pick u up no matter what..... Ah por what happened to you??

      Old lady: I went for whole knee transplant ... walking is v v kankor now

      Reached Destination in 6 mins, Meter $5.20 (i think)

      Guan: switched off meter ... Told Granny is a complimentary ride from me ...

      Old lady: (Speaking in cantonese) I cannot take advantage of u ... u got family to support.... insist on paying me $5.

      Then Guan helped her to the lift lobby .... she wished me tua huat huat .... so the whole night is tua huat huat loh .....

    • although cannot do it too often, when pax meet the condition, try my best la.. started last sep, somehow start to give free or discounted trip..    certain type of pax nia.. 1 old lady, thought of free trip, reach distination - jiat hong chu..   i need $ more than her..my shortest distance, 100 meter- old man, maybe fell down, cannot walk, wait taxi, press meter, turn, gao liao..we cabby kenna press by rental n time, can only do this much..to all cabbys who just want to help help other in our small little way..$ not the only reason y we drive taxi..

      helping someone we don't use money to measure when you plan to help, it is that naturally arise frm your heart for old folks, we respect them cause they once also contribute one way or another

    • seems like the taxi drivers nowadays got better morals than PAP MPs, hahaha... the only problem i see is that when they are younger, they made the wrong decisions never study hard to get that paper certificate.

      yep, i agree with you. but that last sentence from you sounds so bitter, as if you think that i am putting down taxi drivers which i wasn't... for your info, my family members also have taxi drivers, so i don't disrespect them,

    • hei please delete the comments you put at your last sentence. Show us some respect. you think we Tds need high qualifications to drive a taxi. this is the only trade only Singaporeans can do. No Foreign talent can drive a taxi.

    • This is the only trade I am proud of to be a Singaporean and that is why I holding on to my pink I/C.

    • volunteer many type

      i never consider those who get paid a volunteer, rather see them as a staff

      i never get pay during those years, rather i pay from my own pocket to treat my

      volunteer/helper (non working/or low salary) for some makan to thanks them for their time

      and effort

      i quit mainly when charity is beinging to be too commericalise that they start using funds

      (funds that did not specify for which area to goto where it become general funds to upgrade themselve to have better office and equipment at their workplace)

      So if any members wish to donate, please always remember to specify where you want the donation to the benefical

    • If driving CDG, volunteer for cabby care loh..........

      Compassion is instill in heart, free ride for elders or oldies is very individual..........

      Have a good chat with those elders, their family members or children, you will be surprise to find out more before you decided to give free ride...........
