Multimedia: I'm My Own Boss
With his stylish white leather loafers, wrap-around shades and upturned shirt collar, Muhammad Hasnor Hashim goes against the grain of what a taxi driver should look like. The 32-year-old and father of three is one of Singapore's youngest taxi driver. Hasnor enjoys the flexible hours, takes pride in his work ethic and claims to earn as much as $7000 in a good month. "We should be called taxi managers instead of taxi drivers because we manage a taxi and we are our own boss," says the former general manager in a security firm.
Photojournalist Seah Kwang Peng spends a day in Hasnor's taxi prowling the streets for his next passenger.
