“You will be kicked out from the group!”

I have just started attending BSF, short for Bible Study Fellowship since September, it has been two months, every Thursday at 9:30am at SS17 First Baptist Church. It is not far from where I am staying, my friend from Serdang is also attending BSF every Thursday morning.

I was told indeed I must not be late, or being absent without prior notification, strict practices.

It was rather struggling to get time to attend this class, I know I need no excuses to just quit it, in order to not allowing or giving a tiny chance from stopping it, I went every Thursday so far.... but non of the day was early or at least punctual, I was late from the very first day.

I am in grabcar driving since July, driving every weekday morning after sending son to school, because those times are MEGA PEAK time, I don't know where I will ended up to, especially on Thursday, I tried to end trip before 9am, so allowing myself to have enough time to drive back to SS17.

Most of the time got stuck in the jam unfortunately.

To the discussion group, hardly speaking to anyone, often listening to them sharing their opinions, most of the time they were very polite, and gentle.

Every Tuesday, the group leader will give me a call to ask if anything I need to pray, and she will then put into ASK and send to us in a Whatsapp group.

Today, I was very late, came from USJ, yet took me the longest time to stuck in the slow traffic then I go from KL.

As soon as the sharing in the hall ended, I met a lady from the same group, she is an usher too, we give a smile and nod head every time we see each other, never saying anything, she came to me with smiling face and say: "Hi!" Oh I was very surprise, finally someone attend to me and may be wanted to know me better after a month of joining.

I was feeling happy and responded quickly: "Hi!"

"If you be late again, you will be kicked out from the group."


Mmmm.... I know I am bad as I being late all the time.

haha, don't you feel odd? I felt odd, and thought: " Ok, then just kick me out!"

"Wait a minute! I am not going to allow this happen to stop me from knowing God's Word. You may not be perfect, you are the blue eyes in the group, sharing great testimonies, if you do not know how to care or at least ask me if I know the regulations of BSF?" So discouraged. So different from the lady I know in the group sharing.

Fine, If you think I will just "LET'S QUIT! NO WAY, here I am to be overcomer!
I am not quitting BSF because of her!

Go forth! and March In!

三天两夜在马六甲El Sanctuary 圣殿度假村“烈火营” ,来个属灵冲电,也矫正个人焦点,为世界而忙得不可开交,容易偏离主道,摔跤搞到自己焦头烂额。



敬拜赞美后不经意跪下(我这人鲜少跪下,因为害怕膝盖疼😅),我对上帝说;“不是愿意付出一切吗?(自以为义😕)我向来愿意为祢的国度去做,对我一个女人,我能做的,除了愿意以祢给的恩赐用在国度里,我更需要照顾好祢赐下的家,这个家庭虽然只有我和小儿,总不能不顾一切,我最讨厌是没有责任感的人,我不能去接受一个没有责任感的自己,我很累,我很讨厌自己为世界的事而累。。。上帝,你不明白我。。。” 说着,眼泪不停地流下,弄湿了椅子,有害怕人看见,赶紧用纸巾抹掉。。。但掩饰不了自己的激动与鼻涕的“川流不息” (无助)


“可以。” 说着也点了点头。
心里想着:“我不曾告诉任何人我属灵状况,也不曾表示我很累,嗯,这个小姐妹会祷告些什么呢?上帝告诉了她什么东西呢?” 这个念头不是出于骄傲,只是出于上帝会怎样对她说话。

Uber or Grabcar Drive in Malaysia?

Have you read about this article 

Part-time Job: Should You Drive For Uber Or GrabCar?

It has full details about the fare and calculations. I am sharing here is more to the driver's experience, real life incidents.

I started Uber drive in June, and Grabcar Drive in July. Below is my experiences about both.

Uber Drive

I loved it, online whenever and wherever you are available, driving is never my thing before, surprisingly ever since I started driving then I realize that driving is such an enjoyment, especially you can earn while you drive.

I enjoy meeting people that are cheerful, and appreciated their kind attitude, we chatted and have fun during the drive. Well there are all sort of people around, there are riders that are very unfriendly.

Uber incentive hours

Uber riders mostly paying by credit card, I loved this feature not until they accepted cash term riders.

There are a few slots of incentive hours, which Uber guarantees the amount you can get whenever your fare is lower than the guaranteed fare, with the condition of 1.25 trips per hour (TPH), If you are online for 4 hours, you need to have at least 5 trips during these slots. 50% of the pick-ups shall be in core-service-area (CSA)

How does it work?
In the scenario of your total fare of the week is below RM500, you are in TIER 2, guaranteed hour pay is RM25.

For example in the morning 6am to 10am slot. If you meet the all requirements TPH,and percentage of CSA pick-up, total amount of gross fare is RM58, time online is 4 hours (you shall not take break in order to have full GROSS RM100 incentive)

guaranteed fare RM100 - RM58 (fare ) = RM42 (Uber should pay you extra)

RM42 x 80% = RM33.60 nett is going to bank in to your account.

The more you drive, the lesser Uber will compensate.
Upon the TPH and CSA is really out of your control, as you won't know the next rider's destination, yet you need to accept every single 'Ping".\ (request)
Requirement of CSA is for that particular slot, there is noway of compile with other slots and other days. If you can't make it 50% of pick-up in CSA for the slot, too bad, you are not qualified for the incentive.

Sometimes you make more than the amount, especially you got an airport trip. Sometimes you will have less than enough trips (TPH) when you have long distance trip and jam routes, sometimes you are brought to outside the CSA like Nilai, Sri Kembangan, Kepong, Sungai Buloh..., situation like these always happen.

Bad experience of my UBER DRIVE
You don't know where the rider will go when you accept the ping. Many times the pick-up distance is 11km driving time is 25 minutes, after picking-up the rider, and found out just to take the rider to go somewhere 4km, in the 4 km route, approximately total fare is RM4.50, deduct 25% Uber fee (RM1.125), you get RM3.375 (Sorry, I really can't take this shit!) So I learnt not to take any trip that pick-up time is above 5km.

Sadly, I got deactivated once, and another time was I called to tell the rider of the distance and time to pick-up is too long and too far, complained by a rider, when I reject the pick-up because the pick-up distance was 11km, which means, I better not to call but just to cancel the trip in order getting this complain lodged.

From here I truly felt this kind of rider is very inconsiderate and selfish. And why I want to give my precious time and precious service to this kind of selfish riders?

Uber drives are giving their best time and effort to give riders the best choice to ride instead of taking taxi, they should indeed respect and appreciated drivers.

For the incentive that Uber is giving, is paying you RM25 gross (Uber fee is 25% from the trip you make + Uber tops up the balance to make up to RM25 GROSS, the top up amount subject to 20% of uber fee) to do fetching job! Totally not worth the effort, apart from here, you need to pay car installments, services, fuel and TIME on the road.

Bad experience 2
A lady rider, requested to go Trivoli Condo in Bangsar, most of the time I use Waze to navigate the route to go there, she kept saying this way "no, no, no... use another way." But but.... "Where is another way?" She doesn't know either, so I continue to drive eventually came to a road that was closed due to construction, I had to make another round and find a way to send her back. It costed her ride about RM22, well during the ride, she was quite cool, this happened in my first week of Uber drive, I was still blur then, after that I saw the payment back to RM8 on top of that because I gave her a discount code which entitle her to have Free RM5 for 5 rides, so she only have to pay RM3 but I have spent my time and 23km drove her back. There was a function that Uber rider can lodge a complain of the route that they don't like, so Uber will review it to the shortest distance. SHIT!

Bad experience 3
Early in the morning of Monday, I have gotten a Ping in Subang SS15, the rider went Nilai. Gosh, the end of the day!

Bad experience 4
Going to KLIA is not that good deal in fact, most of the time you have to come back empty car, or waited there for 2 to 4 hours. RM75 flat rate - uber fee, you get RM52.25 You see, what kind of money you are "earning"??  or loosing indeed.

Grabcar Drive

The enjoyment of driving is still there after a month of Uber driving. Now is time to start GrabCar to find out the differences between two systems.

Didn't really like Grabcar drive at first, because of the cash term, I need to get ready small notes, and quite worrisome about the rider of who I am about to pick-up, because they can be anyone without true identity, you will get "Superboy", "Dreamy", or even "   .   "  , a dot!!!!? I feel insecure, nobody will knows who is the rider, the phone can be registered with a stolen ID, or stolen phone.

Something still attracting me to remain Grabcar driving:
1)  Grabcar Fee 20%
2) Fare is more reasonable
3) Pick-up distance is so SO MUCH nearer.

During Grabcar busy time slot, Grabcar incentive is guaranteed for WEEKDAYS:

RM16 per trip if total fare of the day you made is above RM30,
RM18 per trip if total fare made is above RM55,
RM21 per trip for total fare above RM90,
and the last tier is RM25 per trip if fare made above RM135,

Pick-up area has to be 50% in Busy Areas  and this percentage is calculate base on WEEKLY basis, if you can't make it during the time slot of that day, don't worry, you total up all the trips that you pick-up during Peak Hours for the whole week. as long as all Busy Area pick-ups is still more than non busy areas for the whole week, you will still entitle of the incentive.

This is the record chart of the week 8 Aug - 14th Aug, which I drove mainly Grabcar

Grand Total397.00317.6091.6538.00447.25209.00125.050.30272.00

Let take the Monday fare to view how GrabCar gives us incentive
Fare RM70, fare above RM55 entitled of RM18 per trips, I made 7 trips, get the average fare of each trip is RM10, therefore Grabcar is giving RM8 nett for every trip.

The calculation of incentive on Monday will be 7 x RM18 = RM126
RM126 - RM70 (fare collected) = RM56 to be banked in to my account.


If you ever drove Uber, you know the BIG DIFFERENCE about the incentives.

My first Uber ride experience

On the Saturday morning, needed to fetch Gab for tuition, though I have been a Uber driver since 1st June, but I haven't tried a trip as a Uber rider, this day I planned to give it a try, called a ride even though Gab didn't agree to go for it, I told him better go now, the Uber driver is waiting at guard house now. 

It took about 10 minutes upon arrival, which I can see the route from uber app, and notification alert about completion, I wrote a comment "Thank you for fetching my son to tuition" to thank the uber driver, as a driver myself, I appreciate much the effort of every driver. 

Gab sent a message to me:
It was really a surprise to both of us, can't believe it is true, especially Gab, too bad he didn't take a "wefie" with Tan Sri Abdul Wahid. 

The news about why Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Uber drive.

Homemade Golden Syrup

Golden Syrup is used in many Chinese dessert, one of the recipes that calls for golden syrup is traditional moon cakes. I used to buy from confectionery store one bottle 700g for RM4.60 and some I bought at RM6.90, the difference from homemade I could tell is aroma is stronger and colour is darker (cooked longer) for homemade. 

It isn't hard to cook in Thermomix. I did a comparison between traditional way of cooking golden syrup, we need to use a brush to "water" the pot to prevent syrup from cristalize whereas Thermomix is just the 3 circles!!! 

Thankful of Madeline shared her recipe with us, this encouraged me to try on my own to cooking golden syrup, if you could compare the way cooking in pot, Thermomix rocks!!
