A FOOD delivery rider stunned Internet users after revealing that he earned some RM30,000 a month in Hong Kong, reported China Press.
The 25-year-old, who is originally from China’s Guangdong province, said he worked from 9am to 10pm daily and could make between HK$25 and HK$62 (RM15 and RM37) per trip.
In a street interview shared on a Chinese social media platform, the rider, nicknamed Binzai, said demand would shoot up during rainy days, and his highest record was sending seven orders within an hour.
“Working more earns more. As long as you work hard, you will be able to make money,” he added.
Binzai, who began working in the special administrative region in 2015, said he had saved up more than HK$500,000 (RM300,000).

Tsai uploaded a video of the pandas online and wrote, “This is unbelievable.”
A few Internet users joked that the superstar had finally experienced the sensation of being crammed into a concert crowd.
