Grab improves the lives of commuters, taxi drivers

GrabTaxi is a ride-hailing app that has tremendously improved the lives of many by connecting commuters and taxi drivers and solved traffic-ridden commute issues.

One of the individuals who benefitted from the app is Kenneth Leslie Santander Aquito of Quarry Taxi. He said that since he became a GrabTaxi driver in 2017, his life has improved.

"Daku gid nabulig sang Grab sa akon. Indi na problema ang wala sang pasahero kay tungod sang Grab, may nagapa pick-up na nga pasahero," Aquito told this writer during a phone interview.

"May incentives ako kada semana kag gasulod ini sa GCash. Daw bangko ang gwa nya nga pwede ko makuhaan kwarta kon may emergency," he added. GCash, another app, is a fast and secure way for Grab to send money to the drivers.

Love. A four letter word. Sometimes, four cupcakes in a box to express how you feel.

Mrs. Wharton Pastries, London Bakes and English Teas offers Love Box, a delightful box of four delicious cupcakes which is an ideal gift, take-home treat or surprise to express our love or affection towards someone.

Mrs. Wharton is a British shop, so the Love Box was named as such because in England, people there call everybody, even strangers “love” or “luv”. For example, you walk in a restaurant or cafe, it’s normal for the waitress to ask, “What are you having, luv?” or “What can I get you, luv?”

These are available for single purchase at P50 each but the Love Box is only P150 with already four goodies.
