In the caption, Bryan wrote: “I am too addicted working (for) Food Panda without plans to pursuing (sic) further education for the lifetime.”

‘This could be my lifetime dream job’

Speaking to AsiaOne about his incredible earnings, Bryan said that he works around 16 to 20 hours daily and finds the job to potentially be his “lifetime dream job”.

[Being a food delivery rider] is relaxing. I set up my own schedule – what time I start and end work. And the wage is pretty decent. I get tips from customers, medical coverage and incentive bonus.”

He added that he just became a food delivery rider in late 2023 after he left his job as a warehouse assistant due to workplace discrimination.

“I was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and could not control myself from making weird noises to my colleagues. As such, I found myself ostracised.

“I was also kicked out from primary school after getting into a fight with a discipline master and assaulting the principal, as well as vandalising the classroom table with a permanent marker,” he said.

Bryan said he first started out with a wage of S$2,900 (approx. RM10,000) but later saw it double after changing his bicycle to an electric bicycle.

Despite the physical toil that comes with the job, Bryan said he plans to continue working as a delivery rider until he turns 65.

“I don’t have plans to further my studies and am currently saving up to possibly own a private property and live independently.

“It will take several years to get there. But [being a food delivery rider] is one of the shortcuts to chase my dreams and turn them into reality.”
