How Much Money Does an Uber Driver Make in Singapore?

Is it worth to become an Uber Driver in Singapore?
Five weeks ago, I signed up as an Uber Driver using a rented car.
Why did I sign up? Simple...
The ads say you can earn S$5000 per month.
News articles say some even earned S$6000 per month.
So how much did I earn?
I drive in sessions of 3 hours between breaks.
In 3 hours, I collected an average total fare of S$70.
Let's do the maths.
Driving for 10 hours will yield about S$200 (rounded off worst case situation).
Drive for 30 days and you get S$6000!
How much is the car rental? Petrol? Carpark? And Uber's commission of 20%.
Rounding off the total cost, it's about S$2,500 per month. Uber's 20% commission is S$1200.
That means my take-home profit is S$6000 - S$2500 - S$1200 = S$2300.
The calculation does not include the variable incentives earned by driving a certain number of trips and making referrals.
What are the lessons learned from this experiment?
- If an extra S$2300 per month means something, then renting a car and driving for UBER is worth it.
- The earnings will be better if you already have your own car.
Question: Does driving for an extra S$2300 to S$3800 per month mean something to you?

The original "idea" journal posted on Aril 28, 2015. I have a request to shoot a corporate internal talk and stream it to a live audience in seven different countries.

First 3 things that came to mind is...

1. Video conferencing system.
2. Google+ Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.
3. Other Streaming services like Ustream.

Video conferencing system is out as that would require a whole set of dedicated equipment.

All I have at this point is.
