Being a delivery driver is a job that’s highly demanded during COVID-19 as people are staying home to practice social distancing, thus relying on drivers to get food and supplies. Many people are signing up to become delivery drivers – even pilots and celebrities.

Thai actor Amp decided to sign up to become a Grab delivery driver after his friend, who is a pilot, invited him to do so. 

Amp shared that he enjoys the experience as he was able to make new friends and got to know more restaurants. He was also able to learn how to save money as he realised how hard it is to earn it.

While raining, most drivers choose to take a rest, but he used this opportunity to work even harder. He’s proud that he’s been able to make a living for his wife and daughter, and feels that it is not an embarrassing thing to do, as long as you make money in a rightful manner.
