Grab Durian is back and you can enjoy a whole Musang King durian for only RM8. You would need to secure it today with your Grab points and you can redeem it this coming weekend.
Grab is a little behind if we’re talking about mobile wallets, at least in Malaysia. We already have a several different ones that work roughly the same, with some kind of unique rewards system and payment that happens via QR code.
But, just like Google wasn’t the first search engine to exist, the brand new GrabPay wallet is counting on the fact that you don’t need to be first to be the best. And honestly, they’re making a strong case for it because GrabPay already brings a lot to the table that its competition doesn’t.
Food delivery services have been one of the greatest blessings to many of us. We can order food from our favourite restaurant and have it delivered to our doorstep instead of grabbing it ourselves.
The whole Grab-Uber takeover felt a lot like a bad divorce. Where there was once balance, there is only chaos for everyone left behind. It didn’t matter if you were a driver, rider or couch potato looking to have food delivered to your doorstep — as long as you used one of their services, you would have felt the repercussions.
While the transition was supposed to be smooth, the handful of drivers and riders I’ve spoken to seems to feel otherwise. But, I’m not here to talk about “word on the street”. No, today is about a service that we actually use a lot in the office: UberEats. Or rather, the service that will eventually replace it. It’s called GrabFood and here are our first impressions.
As Grab takes over Uber operations in Malaysia, consumers are worried about possible fare increases due to lack of competition. Previously, you have a choice between Grab and Uber, so you can pick based on pricing and availability.
With Uber pulling the plug this coming Sunday, there’s now another ride-hailing alternative that you can use in Malaysia.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about Uber selling their Southeast Asian business to local ride hailing service Grab. Today, those rumours and speculations are put to rest as Grab officially announces that they’re taking over operations for Uber in Southeast Asia.
Here’s what that means.
Ride-sharing is probably the best thing to ever happen for the Klang Valley. While our public transport infrastructure is improving with new lines and new trains, getting from point A to point B is still very much reliant on road transport.
Just recently Grab had introduced its new service that’s called GrabShare. Like the same suggests, it’s basically a GrabCar service which you can share with another passenger. Think of it as car-pooling on a GrabCar platform. Is it any good? We gave it a try to find out more.
With the current road congestion, carpooling is the way to go but it takes a lot of coordination from multiple parties. Sure, you can organise a pickup of your colleagues who are staying at different places but the designated driver ends up spending more time going point to point to pick up everyone.
Grab has just launched GrabShare, a new ride sharing service in Malaysia that aims to be a smarter way to travel. It’s a carpooling service which allows you to share your ride with someone else.
This will not only bring down the cost of point to point travel but it also helps to reduce congestion on the road.
This afternoon the folks from Grab had sent us something out of the ordinary. It’s a monster-sized cookie packed in a typical pizza box.
