Diary of a Taxi Driver

From professor to Singapore’s most educated taxi driver. When Dr. Cai Mingjie, a scientist and university professor, lost his job at a leading research institute in Singapore despite having published numerous papers and a Stanford PhD, he could not find a suitable job. Disheartened by the global financial crisis, he became a taxi driver, the Singaporean job of last resort.

While driving a cab he jotted down notes about his experiences and posted them on his blog (http://taxidiary.blogspot.com), quickly becoming an internet celebrity with close to one million hits so far.
