Enjoy 2 FREE UBER Rides Worth RM10 Each for First-Time Riders

Hey guys, today I want to share with you about my experience on using the ride-hailing apps called UBER. There was an event in Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre earlier today and I was running a little late and so I decided to take an UBER instead of driving in order to save time looking for a parking spot.

Image from UBER
It took about 5 minutes for the UBER driver to picked me up and managed to reach KLCC in about 20 minutes. My total fee was RM13.42 but there was a weekend promo code which deduct RM6 from the fee. Not only it's convenient and fast but I get to saved some money from the parking fee. If you have ever parked in KLCC, I am sure that you are familiar with the RM5 for the first hour and subsequent hour at RM3 each. To make it worse, there's no maximum rate for that! Meaning that, the parking fee can cost us a good meal at a nice cafe! There's also a risk that you might lose the parking ticket and my friend told me that he had to pay RM100 for it. - 300x300 Nikon
