      Sorry , i welcome you to LakeView , i never pushed anyone to join LakeView .

      Not hard selling method .

      OMO very tiring, cannot sustain for long time, for those omo, my hats off to you dunno how you guys can sustain it. drive long hours and bear all the rental very siong. the taxi companies didnt design their schemes for the OMOs.


      I always against OMO .

      Many still dun believe .

      With partnership still the best , tradtionally until now .

      But if taxi rental today is $50 whole day , OMO is good .

      Not $134 for that fucking K5 .

      Call ? Driving night cannot anyhow take call one .

      If u believe one more person in your life , and that's me ....... master sweeping first .

      When u master sweeping , then learnt to take call .

      Will be easier .

      Familiarise Singapore , then its easier .

      You are not the first to realize that , not too late though .

      If only many believe what i said since i started this forum .

      cheers


      Since now u join CDG , focus on CDG ...... cos CDG really need to master many more things .

      I dun want LV to be a burden to you .

      Once u settle down CDG , then u decide if u need LV .

      therefore need pro here to guide me  where to get limo job ..

       

       


      i rather be a relief than sign up the kimgu .... crazy idea .

      I hate SMRT for hard selling those Ssangyong to newbies , they knew those turnover rates of drivers resigning from driving a kimgu .

      Bastards lah those people from SMRT .

      New bird go and learn how to drive day first ... Night it's never easy , u be slashed into pieces with drivers like us . Most trips u kena will be damn jiak lat one .

      If u dun believe , most trips surely sweep go Holland one , why ?

      That's our trade secrets .

      U be relief for this hirer from SMRT , he stay Marsiling Drive ...... just try out relief with him , not happy throw key back to him .

      U understudy with low rental first , then can liao , can move up step by step .

      He driving a Chevrolet .

      New Chevy less than 3 months old , still got new car smell hahahah

      U call him 86537455 Vincent .

      Advantage of driving for him ?

      He has got a LV walkie talkie , membership and talkie bill u share the burden wif him .....

      How damaging the burden of LV walkie talkie service ?

      Each driver $21 membership and about $44 Grid bills if Vincent change plans to Unlimited $88.

      Now Vince paid $28 memberhsip and roughly $70 Grid's talkie bill .

      With walkie talkie , u can get help from my Top LV Junior Ah Khoon for help , any help , he damn helpful one .

    • Kimgu cannot make it one .... SMRT stuck alot with this type of taxis at their back yard .

      Their Top KimGu all move to Hyundai Starex MPV liao ......

      SMRT should focus all their effort on their aging MRT and buses , at the first place , they should have leave taxi business alone .

      I said long time ago , SMRT should just mind their own fucking MRT business .
