Love in Delivery: Mohd Afandi, Malaysia

Love in Delivery:
“We met in June 2018, during the GrabFood onboarding session in Kuala Lumpur. I thought she was attractive but we were just friends then. She didn’t start delivering food immediately, but she was in one of our rider group chats and that’s how we got to know each other better. Once when I had an accident but still continued delivering food while still bleeding from a wound, she really pushed me to see a doctor first. She was really concerned about me and I was touched. We are a ‘low-key’ couple. We like simple things. Our dates usually took place when we meet to catch up with each other and friends at Nagasari Curry House in KL – it’s where a lot of riders hang out when we are between jobs. When we decided to get married, the GrabFood theme for our photoshoot actually came from our photographer. She liked the colour green and wanted to have a green wedding. So, it all fit! We hope to start a family soon.”

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
