SINGAPORE - Hong Kong actor Chapman To has praised a local taxi driver for driving back to his hotel to return him his wallet which he had dropped in the cab.

The comedian recounted the incident on his Facebook page on Saturday morning and said he "encountered a good deed in Singapore" on Friday night.

"Just as I was about to go to sleep, I received a call from the hotel manager, who told me that my cab driver was downstairs and wanted to return me my wallet," wrote To.

To then went downstairs to collect his wallet and while thanking the taxi driver, who did not leave his name, offered to give him a tip.

However, the driver told To: "If I wanted money, why would I return to the hotel? I can just take it from your wallet!"

To then said on Facebook: "There are many reasons for liking a country and its people is one of the reasons.

"Mr Taxi Driver, even though you refused to tell me your name, I still want to thank you.

"I will donate the tip to charity on your behalf," wrote To.

Netizens also heaped praise on the driver for his honesty.

One Facebook user RabbitLorna Chui wrote: "It must have been fate for you to have met a taxi driver who isn't greedy. We should all learn from this."

Another user named Linnie Lee commented: "Just when you have lost faith in humanity, something good happens. Thank you, Mr Taxi Driver!"


在新加坡遇上好人好事。晚上正準備睡覺,酒店大堂經理卻打電話來,說我剛才乘搭的 Taxi ,司機把我不小心留下的錢包送了回來!我下去拿回錢包的時候,為表示謝意,說要給他小費。他卻對我說:「要是我想要錢,我幹嘛要回來呢?直接從你錢包拿就好!」之後他瀟灑地離開。喜歡一個地方有很多原因,而「人」當然是最重要的一點。司機大佬,雖然你不願意報上名來,我還是要對你說聲謝謝!我會替你把那小費捐出去。
