Taiwan Uber

photo belong to Yahoo

I am not a fan of Uber, actually I have taken a few times this years. My experience was speechless. 

I seen young drivers who try to make some $$$ and they were very kind and helpful. 

Taiwan have left little chance for this young generation to make $$$, this is just another opportunity for them. Yellow cab drivers are not that bad but compare to Uber drivers, it is still far from it.

In Singapore they have Grab and Uber, as I know they do no see a problem there. Singapore has more Taxi compare to Taipei and Kaohsiung combine. What is wrong with people driving to pick up others, this is happening everywhere in the world. In Thailand there are bike taxi, in Indonesia they have Tutu, elsewhere do your homework.

So what is wrong with modern world driving Uber? Is this about authorities can't find away to tax drivers, instead fining them??? Come on they do not get paid instantly, this is something like cooperate 7-11 using the online purchase benefit, washing money...... Who is the one should be in watch. Which authority is in the pocket of 7-11, may I ask??

I honestly feel the local authorities are so blind. They listen to any complain but never understand how this nation has become. The young is getting jobless and you are trying to restrict them, this nation in next 10 years might be doomed all because of your current benefit that someone is getting.

If the young have no opportunity now, their further is for you to see, so is you retirement plan.

FastStone Photo Resizer - Powerful Image Converter/Resizer

This software is really amazing, there is no Malwares or Virus. I am using it to convert most of the photos taken in 4:6 to 16:9 so that the photo can look good on Youtube.  

Found the ideal setting will be 1500 x 845 pixel under Advance Options. The photo do convert well but to a smaller size file in another folder so your original photo still stays in tact. Good enough to make a Youtube Video. 

You have a look at the video I created in Backpacking East Malaysia Sabah and decide weather it is good enough.

Lake Toba Indonesia

21~26 June 2013
Lake Toba is the world biggest volcanic lake located in Sumatra, getting there can prove a challenge.
The people there are called Batak, previously head hunters who now mostly converted to Christians. Their culture are very unique especially the buffalo horn roof top and the food is simply fantastic.

Lake Toba has been my dream destination since 1990. At that time getting there was rather difficult as the transportation was not easily available and was expensive.

We highly recommend to stay at Mas Cottage
Things to Note:
  • Contact them to make pick up arrangement.
  • There is WIFI only in their restaurant area.
  • There is Beer.
  • Must try their home cooked food.
  • Rent a bike and go around the island
