Ban Grab? No, No Ban Dirty Taxis And Rude And Unscrupulous Taximen

Haha..the taxi guys want the new government to ban Grab!

No, no. Ban dirty taxis and rude and unscrupulous taximen.

Any one with a mobile phone (even those without can get their friends or relatives to help out) won't bother to hail a taxi.

With Grab or other e-hailing taxi service, passengers know in advance how much they have to pay. They don't have to wait for a damn taxi to arrive in the hot sun or rain.

They also won't have to worry whether a taxi they hail will accept their fare. Many taximen are choosy and will only go where they want to go, not where your destination is.

Many of the Grab cars are in better condition than even the newer taxis. Many taxis are old and smelly! Who wants to pay for an uncomfortable ride? Only the guys with no choice would be foolish to pay for a torture.

If a route is new to you, you won't know for certain whether the taximan may rip you off by taking the longer route. Bolehlnaders have heard horror stories one too many to bother with the traditional taxi anymore.

No, no don't ban Grab or other e-hailing taxi service. E-hailing taxi is the modern way to go.

No one owes the taximen a living. They have to earn it by becoming competitive, reliable, truth-worthy and efficient.

They have to earn it by honest work.

Baning Grab or other e-hailing taxi service would be a mistake the new Pakatan Harapan government can't afford to make.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
