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.”

 

 

 

 

 











Somebody won USD3,300 after betting that Luis Suarez would bite someone

Somebody won USD3,300 after betting that Luis Suarez would bite someone

That’s a thought to chew on

He fought tooth and nail for the goal. For the record Uruguay won 1-0 against Italy on Tuesday.

He fought tooth and nail for the goal.

Not sure which is more surprising – that a betting website posted a prop bet that Luiz Suarez would bite someone during the World Cup, or that Suarez really did bite someone. Again.

A total of 167 people reportedly cashed in on their bet on Norwegian gambling website Betsson , with the biggest winner getting a nice USD 3,300 in his bank account.

What are the odds!? on Twitpic

No not this guy – he only bet 32 krone (about $5.25 USD).

The odds were 175-to-1 that Luis Suarez would bite someone during the tournament, which is pretty decent considering Suarez has bitten people on the soccer field before, twice.

Unfortunately the website which allows you to bet on world cup, does not allow you to bet on Luis Suarez.

But hopefully they take the hint.

Here’s more pics from the interweb to keep you happy. Now shoo.

And we has pictures

It is not everyday that Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa faces off Brazil in the World cup.

But when he does, you can be sure that Brazil will not win.

Or at the very least be pushed to a draw. Which is exactly what he did when he performed seven saves in moments that can only be described as miraculous.

“Isn’t it obvious? Ochoa is a reincarnation of god,” said part time football pundit Eric de Yaya.

Other World Cup fans were less certain about the god link.

“Ochoa is probably a reincarnation of Paul the Octopus,” said EPL fan and temporary Mexico supporter Tat Koh Yak Yi. “Paul got so much good karma after lifting poor families out of poverty from their football winnings. That’s why he became human in this life.”

Here’s 7 of the best images of Ochoa in god mode, courtesy of the internet.

#1 Ochoa can be in many places at once

#2 Ochoa is like the thousand-hand Buddha

#3 Ochoa is Superman

#4 Ochoa is like an angmoh Lao Tze 

#5 Ochoa is Jesus

#6 Ochoa can fly

#7 Ochoa is the One

Another way to get into god mode is to try your hand at world cup betting. We don’t guarantee your losses. Sorry hor.
