However, Tsai did receive $96 from three victims, one of whom did it out of pity while the other two just wanted him to leave as they were travelling with young children.

KIND TAXI DRIVER FORGIVE ME FOR NOT HAVING MONEY, EVEN HELPED WITH MY BAGS

A Facebook user posted her touching account of a taxi driver who forgave her for losing her wallet and trusted her to pay him back through bank transfer. She was rushing to the airport when she realised she forgot to bring her wallet. She owned up to the driver who surprisingly gave her a smile and agreed with the bank transfer which she could only do after she lands at her destination. He even helped her with her bags and asked if she needed money. Kudos to kind and magnanimous taxi uncle! Don't think we see many of such people around!

SERIAL THIEVES WHO CAME AS TOURISTS JAILED FOR THEFTS

Three foreign talents, while on holiday in Singapore, went on a stealing spree involving sums of $11,549. The trio, who were Romanians, were in Singapore for an eight day trip, and were given jail sentences for 14, 12 and 6 months each. All three of them had enough money, reportedly about $9,257 and various other amount in foreign currency, but decided to steal money from shops on the first day they were here. All three arrived in Singapore on 29 March, and were scheduled to depart on 5 April. Their plan was simple, go to shops, pretend to ask for change of smaller denominations from $100, remove few pieces and keep in pocket, and return the small denominations and ask for the $100 note back, seemingly having changed their minds. They would then make a quick exit, return to a rental car, and move on to the next shop.

WRONG FOR ORGANISERS BANK ON MESSI THEN SAY HE’S NOT COMING

A football fan felt cheated that Messi will not be playing in tonight's match despite repeated assurance that he will turn up.

"Promoting the match using his undisputed star-draw, then belatedly and limply attributing his absence to "personal reasons", without even a cursory attempt at an explanation, displays an alarming lack of integrity and competence, and a blatant disrespect for football fans on the part of the organisers. It has been widely reported that Messi was preparing for his wedding at the end of this month. Surely a responsible organiser would have scrupulously confirmed if he would be part of the game."
