Stomper Saigon believes that "good people and hardworking people should be rewarded for their efforts."

He would like to extend his gratitude to a couple for returning his phone, which the couple found in a bus, to the bus captain on Christmas Day.

He told Stomp that he had headed home in bus service 32 towards Buona Vista Interchange, on Dec 25 at about 11pm, after a tiring day of work.

When he reached home, he realised that he did not have his phone with him.

He said: "I realised I had lost my phone.

"In that moment, I lost all hope of finding my phone.

"I had lost items like my wallet before and no one had ever returned the items to me.

"Despite my lack of hope, I somehow managed to convince myself to go back to the bus interchange to look for my phone."

Saigon said he reached Buona Vista Terminal at about 11.40pm and went to straight to the office there.

He asked if anyone had returned a Samsung Note 2. To his surprise, someone had.

He told Stomp: "I got my phone back because according to a bus driver, a young duo had passed my phone to him which he then returned to the office.

"I was stunned at finding my phone. Throughout my life, I have lived in a hostile environment where most people around me only care about themselves.

"I could never imagine myself being put in a situation where someone actually returned my valuable item to me.

"It is like a Christmas miracle to me."

The Stomper explains that even though his phone may not be new or trendy, it has stuck by him through thick and thin.

He said: "My phone has been with me for over six years. It followed me through my journey in the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) until I graduated from a polytechnic this year.

"The phone holds a lot of sentimental value to me and I felt as though my lifespan was reduced when I found out it was missing.

"It is like my best friend and I unintentionally nearly lost it due to me being tired and careless that night."

The Stomper was so grateful that he decided to record a video recounting the incident and thanking the couple that returned him his phone.

He posted the video on YouTube on the same day.

In the video, Saigon adds that he was enlightened and motivated to be a better person after this incident.

Sitting and facing the camera, he said: "I would like to thank the duo from the bottom of my heart."
