In the caption to his post, Bryan seemed to recognise how impressive his feat was, admitting that he had become “too addicted” to working.

He added that at present, he does not have plans to pursue further education.

Has been doing food delivery for less than a year

Speaking to MS News, Bryan, 21, shared that he first joined foodpanda in Sep 2023 at the age of 20 as he found the job to be “very relaxing”.

Explaining the appeal, he said:

You can work at any time, any location you want. The customer can tip the rider from S$2 to S$4 or more and you can get an incentive bonus if you put in a lot of hard work.

Having been in the line of work for slightly more than six months, Bryan admits that it has its challenges. He confessed: “Turning the dream into reality is very challenging; sometimes you have to brave the rain and other times you have to cycle in the scorching heat.”

Nevertheless, he pointed out that it’s better than suffering through traditional jobs where people still struggle to survive and support their families.

For Bryan, he can earn about S$200 to S$300 in a day completing 40 to 50 orders. Add that up over a month and he can make S$5,000 to S$6,000. He even estimates that one can hit S$7,000 to S$8,000 in a good month.

His advice is to those thinking of pursuing similar work? Get an e-bike with “double battery”, ride around your neighbourhood and don’t go too far.

“When the battery fluid is low, you can cycle back home to swap to another battery before you resume the shift. If you are planning to make more money, try to book a long hour shift if possible.”

He also suggests that riders resist cycling home to rest until after they conclude their shifts, to avoid disrupting their momentum. Alternatively, those who are tired can request for the system to put them on break until their shift ends.
