A Singapore Taxi Driver’s diary is written by a former scientific researcher who for reasons ‘uniquely Singapore’ ended up as a taxi driver.
As a result, I am driving taxi to make a living and writing these real life stories just to make the dull job a little more interesting
Taxi drivers are in the right place to see the life of a city and the variety of its people; Mingjie Cai is a great storyteller with keen skills of observation. This makes an addictive read with some great insights into the lifestyle and people of Singapore.
It’s also a sobering insight into the long hours and low pay of Singapore’s taxi drivers.
Put some time aside for this blog: once you start reading it’s hard to stop.
