Is there anything that Baey wouldn’t do?

Following a freak HDB lift accident that happened last week (9 Oct), dedicated Tampines MP Baey Yam Keng decided to step up maintenance work in the area.

And he’s doing it himself, no less.

Baey became part of the maintenance crew and went on a power lift to survey the maintenance work at the top storey.


Yasss, the MP went 30 storeys high just to ensure the safety of his beloved Tampines residents.

Much touched.


That height is enough to turn one’s legs into jelly, but certainly not the brave Baey who was busy enjoying a bird’s-eye view.

Of course, how would selfie king forget to take a photo? Check out Baey in matchy matchy outfit with the maintenance crew:

+1 for the attire.

But that’s not all Baey is doing. Just two days ago (14 Oct), Baey posted an update of the lift checks in Tampines.

He shared that in addition to the usual routine lift checks, the Tampines Town Council had also checked all 1,700 lift sensors. One lift was found to have a faulty sensor and was promptly fixed by the Town Council.

The lift sensor helps detect when a person is in between doors.

Baey also took up the unofficial role of the customer service guy, with residents complaining providing feedback to him via Facebook.

The social media savvy MP took these feedback seriously and acted on it swiftly.
