Three Cebuano foodpanda riders keep a part of themselves wherever they go

Other than being required to have a phone, drive a motorcycle, and wear a uniform, riders of the country’s on-demand food delivery service foodpanda are generally free to go about their deliveries as they wish. For three Cebuano riders, that liberty is exercised by staying true to themselves while they attend to orders.

Mylene Bahinting

Among the growing number of female foodpanda riders is Mylene Bahinting. While customers are still surprised to see women doing their deliveries, the shock doesn’t come until the female rider begins to speak on the phone or when she removes the helmet. But for Bahinting, the tell comes much earlier, as they can hear her strut from miles away, food in hand and all.

              “I wear heels while I deliver food,” she says matter-of-factly. “I love dressing up. It makes me feel good and motivated.”

              A self-confessed fashionista, Bahinting lives by the mantra “look good, feel good.” Feeling good in the food delivery industry, she says, where one deals with all sorts of customers, is of prime importance.

“I find ways to keep myself happy and motivated and not think about negative things that would only make me feel drained,” she says.

Bahinting may be one-of-a-kind for her signature heels, but foodpanda dresses all of its riders with special perks to go with their salaries. For example, the company has made it a matter of policy to shoulder costs of canceled orders. Accident insurance is also provided through foodpanda’s partnership with Manulife and Cebuana Lhuillier. What’s more, riders get exclusive deals to save up on data consumption and communications expenses, thanks to tie-ups with Globe, PLDT-Smart, and Cherry Prepaid.

              On days when things seem a little off, Bahinting tries to give her co-riders a reason to smile. “I make jokes with them because I know this kind of job is not easy,” she says. “We always need something to keep us going.”

Kerk Macarayag

For Kerk Macarayag, what keeps him going is the idea that he gets to earn money while rediscovering the beautiful views in his hometown.

Macarayag has a penchant for documenting every moment. He never goes on with his deliveries without bringing his camera. He vlogs and shares his experiences with fellow riders.

              “I take snapshots and deliver,” he says. “Tungod sa foodpanda, nailhan ko nga si Kerk the Vlogger Rider (Through foodpanda, I got to meet ‘Kerk the Vlogger Rider’).”

              While Macarayag keeps his eyes peeled for the most scenic shots, his focus still lies in helping people receive their food orders in the comfort of their homes. He says the key to marrying passion and pay is having a positive disposition in life.

“I always try to be happy and to share good vibes,” he says. “Nothing is impossible basta mahal mo lang trabaho mo. Let’s continue to share positivity to our fellow riders and our customers. Para sa kanila, hero tayo.”

Giovannie Villasenor

foodpanda riders truly are undisputed modern heroes. All things considered, they put their lives on the line to deliver us food. And as they say, heroes deserve songs of praises.

It’s a saying that Giovannie Villasenor seems to know all too well, as the gentle giant makes sure that his co-riders receive the performance they deserve using his golden voice.

Kinakantahan ko sila while waiting for orders,” he says. “Minsan kasi habang naghihintay kami ng orders, may konting oras pa kami magkamustahan, so pinapatawa namin ang isa’t-isa sa pamamagitan ng pagkanta at jokes na din.”

Villasenor loves to sing so much that he doesn’t mind belting out even without an audience. “’Pag slow day, kumakanta nalang ako para di ma-bore. Minsan mag-social media din, manunuod ng mga TikTok videos.”

But in all seriousness, Villasenor reminds his co-riders to stay safe all the time, especially during this time of pandemic.

Sana pagbutihan pa natin ang ating trabaho. Magdeliver ng food safely at panatilihing ligtas ang sarili dahil may uuwian pa tayong pamilya,” he says.

              Road safety and safe delivery practices are among the main principles that foodpanda promotes among its riders. The company provides its delivery personnel with raincoats, face masks, and other necessary gears. Also, safety measures are part of riders’ Protocol Intensive Training, a prerequisite that ensures all riders know what to do to help keep themselves and their customers safe.

Now, aside from delivering food, what else do these three foodpanda riders have in common? They are all great inspirations who remind us to be the best, true versions of ourselves all the time.

As Responsible Citizens We Can Get Through This

It has been more than a month since the government implemented the quarantines everywhere to safeguard the people from possible infection. While many of us are not used to staying at home too long, and the restrictions of going out has been inconvenient to all, it just must be done for our own good.

We have seen on social media and on the news when people do not cooperate with what the government is telling everybody to avoid getting infected. It is hard to say or conclude but according to the news Cebu’s infected keeps increasing. We are the second hot spot next to Manila at the time of this writing. 

There have been many changes in the daily lives of people just in Cebu but around the world. These changes are the same or similar to each other. Here are some of them to name a few:

cebu social distancing covid19

Social Distancing – simply means stay away from other people as much as possible especially in public and avoid social gatherings. Keep a few meters distance from other people when you are in public just a precaution.

work from home cebu covid19 ecq

Quarantine – probably the most common of all changes is the quarantine which is the best way to enforce social distancing for the public to avoid the Covid 19 virus to spread. To put it simply, stay at home, do not go out and socialize and only go out to buy food, medicine, or other necessities or only if there are emergencies. Each household is given a quarantine pass to limit the number of people going out at the same time.

wear mask covid19 cebu

Wearing masks – the virus spreads in different ways and people can get infected by breathing it or if it passes through the mouth.

cebu covid19 ecq curfew

Curfew – For Cebu, people are allowed to go out from 5:00AM and are expected to be at home by 8:00pm. This is to limit the time and the number of people going out.

work from home cebu ecq covid19

Work from home – A lot of people are asked to work from home especially the ones working from call centers and the ones whose jobs can be done remotely through a computer.

cebu travel ban restrictions covid19 ecq

Limited travel – personally, I have only gone out from the house ones, and that is to go to the store and buy some food and never went out from out gate ever since. But in Cebu as of the moment, people are barred from going from one city to the other and to the provinces as well. Travel is restricted.

panic buying hoarding cebu covid19

Panic Buying or Hoarding of groceries – while this is discouraged in order not to deprive others of their needs too but I think it’s only human nature for people to go panic buying in bulk for the fear of having nothing to buy when they need it. We don’t get to see this kind of behavior of the masses in normal situations.

The best way for us to survive this current crisis is to cooperate with the government and just be more patient. None of us like what is going on, everybody is just affected by the situation but the more we discipline ourselves and do our part to cooperate then the sooner this quarantine will end.

Stay up to date with the current situation so that you will know what is going on. When you are on Facebook and other social media, be smart enough not to always trust information from various sources. Make sure the sources of the news are legitimate, verified and from official accounts. Some people are quick to share information without even verifying; therefore, spreading false information to more people causing more damage.

It is also hard to speculate when this crisis will be contained or when we can finally go back to our normal routines in life, but we must adapt to the new norms of our lives under quarantine. I wish you all good luck, good health and safety in this hard times.

The Most Affordable And Fastest Way To Beat Traffic

With the traffic woes in the major cities of the Philippines getting worse, and significant solutions are nowhere near and with distrust in habal-habal (motorcycle taxies) , the general public needs a way to navigate within the city in a faster and more convenient manner. Here comes Angkas.

What is Angkas?

Angkas is a motorcycle hailing service similar to that of a taxi or GrabCar only that it is a motorcycle. It is meant to provide faster and more convenient travel from your pickup point to your destinations since bikes can navigate through traffic easier which is an advantage over 4-wheeled vehicles.

How to use Angkas?

Simply download the Angkas app which is available in both Android and iOS devices, register your name and mobile number and select your pick up location and destination then when a driver is available nearby he will accept your booking and come to you. Make sure to give details about your location and give landmarks when available.

Usually the driver will text you, he will introduce himself as your driver and give additional instructions. If he is a little far he will ask you if you are willing to wait. Don’t forget to respond and confirm whether he will be late or not. It’s a simple practice of courtesy.

How much does it cost?

It is relatively cheap. They have an algorithm to calculate the distance from pickup point to destination and the traffic flow. The exact amount varies but personally I find it cheaper than the regular habal-habal drivers whose asking rates are not standard but based on their personal perception on how much to price their service. Sometimes their prices are fair sometimes too much. That is why Angkas is better from a price perspective.

Is it safe and legal?

Regulation/Legalities – In May 2019, the Land Transportation and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) granted Angkas a 6-month test run as a public transportation.

Tracking and Driver Identification – Another thing why Filipinos love Angkas is that they feel secure knowing who their driver is. The name of the driver and the contact number will be shown when he accepts the passenger’s booking, just similar to GrabCar. Also the location of the driver can be shared.

Safety Gears – Also, the drivers will always insist for you to wear the helmet for protection and will give you the option to wear face mask to protect against dust and smoke.

Insurance – All passengers are also covered with personal accident insurance

Customer Service

And one thing I personally like about them is that they are courteous and smiling. They were trained to treat their passengers nicely. Sometimes they can be chatty with their passengers. A good conversation can sometimes make you forget the traffic.

why filipinos love angkas

Another thing I have noticed is that they will always give you all the change to the last peso or cent. That is what they were trained and instructed on how to treat their passengers. In my experience it is very are for them not to have some loose change or coins. Sometimes I insist on having them keep the change but they will also insist to return everything but I still do insist for them to keep it.

They will always thank you for using their service so don’t forget to thank them back. Lastly, if it is not too much to ask, if you happen to use Angkas, giving your driver an extra as a tip for the service will mean a lot to them.

why filipinos love angkas

These guys chose a decent profession for a living. Some of them stay awake for the whole night to cater passengers who travel at night or at wee hours. They deserve some recognition. A little extra will make them happy.
