Attillah is a former welding inspector in the oil and gas industry, and has been a Grab driver for a few years.
"I was actually a welding inspector in oil and gas before I became a Grab driver. My previous job involves working in oil rigs around the world, and I'll be away from home for weeks. Nevertheless it provided me with a good income, but opportunities dried up," Attillah said.
With not many welding jobs available, Attillah was desperately looking for other ways to support his family.
"I have a family to feed so I started looking for other work. Then I found out about Grab on the internet. The monthly earnings I could get from Grab was comparable to what I got earlier. I had to complete the mandatory online training and once Grab completed my background check, I started driving as a Grab Driver," Attillah explained.
He even sold his computer so he could use the money as down payment for a better car.
He also used his Grab earnings to start a baking business with his wife.
"My wife loves to bake, and I had some money from driving for Grab that I can spare, so we started a baking business together. She bakes and I do the deliveries. It's a great arrangement especially since my working hours are flexible," he said.
Attillah added that as a Grab Driver, he is entitled to an exclusive rewards programme - GrabAllStars. Benefits include 3% savings on PETRONAS fuel with the special Grab Mesra Card, up to 30% savings on car maintenance, and special deals on online retail and F&B, which help to bring up his nett earnings each month.
They may sound little but these benefits actually help Attillah save up to RM300 every month! GrabAllStars help Grab drivers cut back on their daily operations costs so that they get to take home more profits from the job to use on other necessities.
Today, Attillah is one of the most successful Grab drivers in Malaysia, and is even a mentor to new drivers.
"I don't want to give others the wrong impression. It's tough. You get the occasional rude passenger and you can feel a little demotivated. But when you see the earnings at the end of the day, and that you can actually help the newbies, you feel happy. It's not an easy life, but it sure is rewarding. Plus, now I can see my family everyday because of the flexible work schedule!" said Attillah.
You go, Attillah! Here's a thumbs up from Chuck Norris for you.

Moment Of Truth: What Do Malaysian Mums Really Think About Before They Go To Bed? Unsurprisingly, 90% is about their kids. :')
A mother's job is never complete. She plays so many different roles that it truly blows our minds to think about just how much she does in one day. There are chores around the house, work responsibilities, and most important of all, taking care of you. Sometimes, she even manages to squeeze in some me-time to do something she loves. The days are long, but mums take things in stride, and are already planning ahead. It's no wonder that her mind is never at rest, even right before she goes to sleep. But what exactly do our mothers think about?
We got curious and asked some Malaysian mums to tell us the last 3 things they thought about before bed last night.
Note: The mums sent us their bedtime thoughts and we wrote them down on their behalf. Some of the personal details have been changed for privacy.

Jika iklan AdSense dan AdWords dikendalikan oleh syarikat Google, pengiklanan konsep serupa iaitu Adsniaga dikendalikan oleh warga tempatan. PPC adalah singkatan bagi Pay Per Click iaitu bayaran iklan yang dikira berdasarkan bilangan klik oleh pengunjung blog atau website. Siapakah yang membayar dan siapakah yang menerima bayaran? Jika di Google, AdWords adalah untuk pengiklan manakala AdSense adalah untuk penyiar iklan. Di Adsniaga, terus terdapat akaun advertiser dan publisher.
Pengiklanan di AdWords sudah dikenali ramai dan pengiklanannya juga mempunyai persaingan yang tinggi menyebabkan bayaran untuk setiap klik boleh menjadi sangat mahal. Blogger tempatan yang mahu mendapat duit daripada AdSense juga boleh menjadi sukar kerana blog Bahasa Malaysia tidak boleh meletakkan iklan AdSense. Oleh itu, Adsniaga sangat berkesan untuk pengiklan dan penyiar iklan berbentuk pay-per-click.
