    • And maybe most of you guys have not see GrabHitch, wherever I do my casket van on weekends or middle the week, where most people died and need to sent to mortuary, house or crematorium, I drive my BM to pick up my Van.

      And when I use hitch, you can see 40 to 50 paxs booking you…cheap mah, and that is scary if all pte car start to use it, and if so, even grabcar or uber car driver will die cock standing. Fares to AP from west only $15 to $16, fare my my place to my casket companies at Sin Ming or lavender only $9 to 8 dollars. And as you hitch them, you see also see green lantern of taxis at Q and on the road…did I betrayed my own second trade??

    • True, because, once a pax is hook on grab apps, they have options, and all options provide the cab on the door step, from JG to Grabtaxis to grabcar. So, for a taxi driver with grab, when JG surge, grabtaxi takes over, when JG become cheap, JG take over the calls.

      Hence in both ways, it is sure to get, only different is my sound is not using tong tong, but more nicer one, zig zag zig zag…cos I also got cdg calls, so cannot confuse both, grab is zig zag, cdg is ting ting or ping ping for AJ.

    • Actually, for me, after all the hoo and haa on grab this and that, I still find taxi driving viable, that is the most important, I mean, yes, there is abit of lesser pax at certain times, but on other times, there is a high volume of paxs….which more or less compensate the lesser side.

      At the end of the day, Taxi drivers do the morning shift, PHV do the night owl shift.

    • Grab will only buy the name and kill off competitor, as they put it, they will not absorb the manpower and staff of SMRT, so today, you hear PRIME Boss of wanting to buy SMRT together with the manpower and staff of SMRT.

      But then, SMRT and GRAB do share a common shareholder in it, aka Temasek. So do you think SMRT will sell to Prime, a private entity?

      As I said again, grab is a tech company, so they must remain as one, buying over taxi companies is to more or less kill 3,400 competitors at one shot, at the same time, using SMRT brand to lure smrt current driver into apps driver by converting all the smrt taxis into grabtaxi which they will offered it to any rental company who wish to contract it.

    • You don’t have to make a trip to the city for a stylish haircut, or even a hot towel shave. Gentlemen’s barber shops are so popular now, they have made their way to the heartlands.

      Autocutt Barber

      Located in a sleepy stretch of Yio Chu Kang Road, this gentlemen’s salon is run by barbers Alvin and Chris, who also specialize in hot towel shaving. Part of its charm is its retro, tiki-inspired decor that is punctuated by a fleet of vintage VW automobiles spilling over from the neighboring diner Kombi Rocks. Besides offering cutting, styling and shaving services, Autocutt also produces its own line of pomades. Prices range from $15 for styling, $35 for a hair cut and $25 for a hot towel shave.

      The Black Tie

      Tucked away at a Jurong West HDB block is an unapologetically hipster barbershop by Muhammad Tirmidzi Saad and Melvin Koh. Where residents traipse around the estate in slippers and shorts, the barbers on duty are dressed in sharp, dapper outfits. Unsurprisingly, the salon has a diverse clientele, ranging from youths to seniors. Prices range from $15 for a kids/senior citizen’s cut to $45 for a haircut and hot towel shave.

      Deep Cuts Barber

      A few doors down from Stranger’s Reunion, Deep Cuts Barber is a simple set up hidden in an attic of a shophouse at Kampong Bahru Road. The space is slightly reminiscent of a modern tattoo parlour, with polished wooden floors and framed pictures adorning its walls. The laid-back salon offers a simple menu of services—Gent’s Cut ($28), Hot Towel Shave ($25) and Full Beard Sculpting ($18). Deep Cuts accepts mainly appointments, which customers can make on their website.

      Hombre Barberblade

      Unlike the other barber shops on this list, Hombre Barberblade is located in a shiny commercial building along Changi Road. It’s all glass, steel and testosterone here—the barbers, who look like no-nonsense bouncers, are actually an affable bunch. Services range from the usual cut and style ($20) and hot towel shave ($22 onwards) to beard trimming ($15 onwards) and hair tattoos ($12 onwards).

      Mister Moustache Barber Shop

      What is a trendy HDB enclave without a gentlemen’s barber? Mister Moustache Barber Shop is a hair styling and shaving parlor at Everton Park decked out in so-hip-it-hurts vinyl retro barber chairs, leather couches and an eclectic assortment of framed pictures on its walls, a combination that seems to take its cue from the iconic barber shops of New York’s Harlem. Get a hot towel shave at $28, or a full shave and haircut at $35. 

      Neighbourhood Barbershop

      Beyond its non-descript name is a salon brimming with attitude. Manned by a team of young and passionate barbers, this small outfit at [email protected] is a dude bro haven, with graphics of Star Wars characters displayed on its walls. The range of services start from a simple eyebrow shaping ($5) to a shave ($10) and cut ($20). There are also haircuts for women with prices at $20 for short lengths to $25 for those with longer hair. Appointments are preferred.

      Buangkok MRT is still a white elephant now. There are literally no crowds there compared to most other MRT stations.

      Between Serangoon MRT and Punggol MRT on NEL, Buangkok MRT is the only station without a shopping mall. Maybe that explains the lack of crowds.

      Yeah, I also agree that Hougang South Int should be reinstated as Kovan Int. The bus parking bays in Serangoon Int and Hougang Ctrl Int are often saturated, limiting the introduction of new bus services, so some of the services should be amended to Kovan Int to allow new routes and improve frequencies on existing routes.

    • ...Prime is also keen on grabbing SMRT's taxi business  ... may also express their interest in SMRT's taxi business. I mean, ...the news about Grab negotiating with SMRT, right? It's possible that SMRT's talks with Grab has not materialised...
