HAZE HAZE GAIS how’s everyone?
Still coughing? HA HA HA. Sorry I haven’t done my post as promised. I fell sick due to hazy life conditions. HA HA HA HA
I AM SO LAME, JUST EXTINGUISH MY DEMONIC LAUGHTER.
I am not sure about your area, but over at mine, I swear i will bump into Jesus.
So Yes, all complaints aside, I told you guys that I really want you guys to know more about the RYDE app that I used to get home from the airport!!!
MONEY. MONEY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THIS WORLD. SAVING MONEY. You can laugh at the auntie for taking a goodie bag or tabaoing food home from buffets but at the end of the day she did not lose, but gained. SO NOW LET THE GODDESS TEACH YOU HOW TO BE AUNTIE.
I am a true blue budget barbie (other than food). Most of the time, I will take the public transport home from the airport, even if I am lugging my entire wardrobe with me. Regular readers will know, I lugged my 4.3kgs ROG with 1 hand carry and 1 luggage to and fro home and airport previously. But sometimes there’s a limit to how much you can do, even though your goddess is divine as hell. 😉
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I know that the taxi from my house to the airport costs about 34-36$ during peak hours. That’s like… at least 8 chests in dota, 1 nice dress from Her Velvet Vase, 10 plates of chicken rice, two weeks of mrt fare or 10 bags of lycan’s treats!!!
But when I was on my way to HK, I was carrying too many things and it was too early in the morning for me to take the bus. Thus, I knew I had to take a taxi. D: Then I remembered I downloaded the APP called RYDE for my work last time. I was the flyer distributor but I never actually tried the app.
Foreword, I have never used Uber nor Grabtaxi or the likes before. So I wuz liek do i wanna try diz???
But I did, because 34bucks Im crai.
I heeded the advice from many people and looked for my ride (ryde) early. I started scanning for drivers like about 4-5 days before my flight. I got a response in a couple of hours’ time. The sad thing about it isn’t that it takes freaking long to find a ride for normal people, its just that apparently bukit panjang Being ulu as hell has very few “RYDE app participants” and alot of people are not always chillin around here. THANK GOD I FOUND ONE.
So the app tells you the details of the driver, as though you are fixing your first blind date. The car plate and car model of the driver is given, and you are able to see his profile picture just as he can view urs. SO EXCITING OMG. I AM SO LONELY AND THEY FINALLY PAIRED ME UP.
The driver texted me once the night before, and early in the morning on the actual day. He was early and told me to take his time. Such a sweet guy. OMG DO I LOOK FINE.
HAHAHAHA. So anyway we chatted alot and I was well on my way. Apparently the driver used to work in the airport previously so he knew his way around well and even dropped me at the correct “Door” to get me to the SQ business air counter. I didn’t even know shit. HAHAHAHA. And he offered to drive me back when I am coming back to SG. He said he should probably be around the east on Thursday night.
LIKE WHATTTTT IM REALLY LUCKY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE. I thanked him and paid and left.
11.80 OMG FOR PEAK HOUR AND TO THE AIRPORT
Its freaking cheap you know?!??! I even took a photo of the driver :’D
Being the goddess of course my noble steed drove me home safely on Thursday night and even offered to help me with my luggage right to my door. HA HA HA.
You are even allowed to give a feedback for the driver/rider on the app once the ryde has ended. Its quite cool omg. :’D im on the prowl for my rich husband to be. HEHEHE.
I do not think this app is for immediate response, unlike Grabtaxi, however it is really worth your money if you are planning a trip way ahead, Like, going to the airport, like me! Or, you have a huge project next week and you are carrying alot of stuff. It’s a good way to save money when you know a taxi is needed. We all wouldnt want to waste such money!!!
Btw, this applies vice versa too, if you are a driver and U wish to “earn back” abit of your petrol money.
Download the app on ur app store (android also can) Called RYDE, It’s some gay looking orangey-purplish icon. Create your account and upload your super chio photo. Then you are good to go!
Instead of Uber, which I understood from friends that they operate on a supply-demand basis so the price will fluctuate;
RYDE DOES NOT ALTER THE FARE THAT YOU PAY/EARN PER RIDE.
How they “Earn” from you, is that once a match make is confirmed, they deduct 1dollar from your account that you can use to “Search” for matchmakes.

Love all of you. ❤
LASTLY JUST TO SCARE U THIS IS MY NEW PASSPORT PHOTO I AM USING FOR MY RESUME. HA AHAHAH
HAHAHAHA WTF I LOOK LIKE A RETARD NO ONE IS GOING TO HIRE ME.
See you soon peasants. KISSES.
