Spotted on The New Paper today:
Spend $100 on toys? Not this boy
Give any child $100, and he would probably spend it all on goodies or toys. Not 11-year-old Lim Zhi Hao (above).
Recently, The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (SPMF) beneficiary was given $100 in vouchers to shop for whatever he wanted at shopping malls United Square and Velocity@Novena Square.
Instead of getting toys for himself, the Primary 6 pupil from St Anthony’s Primary School chose to get groceries because “my family needs it more”.

Pretty impressed by this boy’s mature thinking for putting his family’s needs above everything else. According to The New Paper, he was the only child who didn’t buy toys or stationary etc, and he got scolded by his sister for not buying them. Luckily he got sponsored so it’s okay(:
