Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe it is good to stay focused, have come out to praise a Straits Times reporter.

This after the ST reporter continued to shoot a video of a Japanese child picking up rubbish by himself at the conclusion of the Group E FIFA World Cup qualifier match between Japan and Singapore at the Singapore National Stadium on Nov. 13, 2015.

One Singaporean, Ji Poon Lang, said he is most impressed by the reporter’s dedication: “I would like to praise the reporter for capturing moments like this for the mass consumption of other people, instead of wanting to help pick up the rubbish too.”

“The reporter deserves a pay raise. Can tell that the reporter is very dedicated and not easily distracted.”

Other Singaporeans have also concurred.

Another Singaporean, Yong Gan, said “It is good to see people dedicated to a task regardless of circumstances.”

“Such courage is rare.”

“We should all learn.”
