An episode from the series TAXI TO ASIA
Most of Manila’s cabbies, like Alejandro, slave 18-24 hours, live far away to cut down on accommodation and have to take refuge at gasoline stations. Protection against hostile passengers is a necessity, henceforth the wrench or hammer which can be seen by the driver’s seat.
Chao Cho Ng is a Limousine driver who has access to some of Asia’s high rollers in the Las Vegas of the East. Enterprising Chao has a dream of starting his own seafood porridge stall but the city is expensive and becoming a big challenge for Macau citizens.
