Meet Joyce Tadeo, Manila’s Hottest Uber Driver

She’s Uber gorgeous indeed!

A A A

Traffic is usually a bad thing but if you’re stuck with a gorgeous driver, I’m not sure if that would still be a problem. In Manila, Philippines, one Uber driver is gaining more attention compared with others because of her sheer good looks and charming personality.

Meet Joyce Tadeo, a lady Uber driver making the rounds in the area to make a living. In a recent feature by FHM Philippines, we learn that Joyce (or JT as her close friends call her), is “a BS Psychology graduate who used to work as a medical representative in a pharmaceutical company.”

Joyce later decided to quit her job and look for another way of earning – which led her to Uber.

Apparently, one of her male friends was an Uber driver and he encouraged her to try it out. So she did.

As Joyce shared with FHM:

“I’m a risk taker. I’m always up for something unusual. And when I saw his earnings, that’s what motivated me the most.”

She started driving for Uber in October 2016 and says she’s actually having fun.

In fact, she almost always gets compliments from her passengers. According to her:

“Most of my passengers are really surprised whenever they book me as their driver. I often get compliments and I really appreciate them. Others even ask for selfies and post my Uber details on social media. Since then, I’ve gotten used to it. I enjoy the feeling of being liked.”

She enjoys having conversations with her passengers, too.

“Everybody knows that traffic is terrible. Some light conversation is always a good time killer.”

However, Joyce says she is very much aware about the importance of safety.

Joyce says as a female driver, she always carries a “rosary and pepper spray for protection” just in case she encounters a crazy passenger.

A nature lover, the Filipina Uber sensation loves going to the beach whenever her schedule allows it.

“I love nature tripping because it helps me feel disconnected from the chaos happening in the city.”

She’s also currently attending dress making classes, hoping to start her own clothing business soon.

Maybe she should consider working as a model, too? I mean she certainly has the looks! And with her recently-found popularity, we really wouldn’t be surprised if offers start knocking on her doors.

Previously, some of you may remember we’ve also previously featured Ikuta Kana, a pretty Japanese girl who works as a gravure model and a taxi driver.

What’s up with all these lovely Asian ladies working as drivers? Makes me wanna hop over there and catch a cab – or an Uber!

Poignant Photo of Nuns Passing By Sleeping Street Children Goes Viral

Do they “practice what they preach?”

We often talk about ironies like they are jokes, such as when you're itching for a smoke but you couldn't find a smoking area or when you badly need a spoon but all you can find are forks and knives. Most of the time, they're funny and a tad bit annoying. But sometimes, we see evidence of daily ironies that strike us right in the middle of our chests, bringing us a terrible ache that doesn't ebb, even long after we look away.

We often hear priests and nuns preach that we must help those who are in need. They teach us to be kind to the poor, to the hungry, to the sick, to those who are on the fringes of society. Yet, there are times when we ask ourselves, "Do they practice what they preach?"

Definitely, there are religious groups that spend their time, effort, and resources to serve those who need help, and we do appreciate that. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Sadly and ironically, though, there are those who are keen on preaching but needs a bit of a nudge when it comes to the "taking action" department.

It’s quite ironic how some criminals actually blame their victims for all their troubles.

People who break the law can be classified into two groups. There are those who become criminals out of desperation. Then, there are those who simply enjoy being criminals and wreaking havoc in other people's lives. While there's hope for the first kind, the criminals in the second group are practically hopeless.

It so happens that we came across several stories that involve the hopeless criminals. Indeed, they seem to feel no remorse for breaking the law. Many of these criminals even blame their victims for their troubles. Here are seven shameless criminals who dared to sue their victims.

Muslim Student Gets Refused By Airport Security ‘Unless She Removes Her Hijab’

She was told “You are not safe for us.”

For all our female Muslim readers out there – have you ever been refused by an airport (or any establishment, for that matter) just because you were wearing a hijab? Aghnia Adzkia, a student from Goldsmith University, experienced exactly that and she’s totally not happy about it.

According to the Indonesian national, she was catching a plane bound to London but airport security did not allow her to board. The reason, as mentioned above, was all because of her wearing a headscarf. They asked her to remove it so they can check it.
