Baey’s best photos here

At age 44, Baey Yam Keng, one of the youngest politicians in Parliament, is setting out to prove that MPs and politicians are not always dry, dreary and boring. He’s on his way to success: his Instagram page already has 1000+ posts and he has amassed an impressive 8.6k followers.

Mr. Baey is known for being the “Selfie King” but his Instagram page has plenty of other posts worth a second look. Here are the top 19:

1. The Philosophical Chinese

This February 1st post was in response to the controversial Liquor Bill that was recently passed in Parliament. Baey babbles on about alcohol, how it can be both good and bad, and why the Bill is good.

We’re more amused with the picture of choice though.

2. The Back Flex

We’re salivating at those back definitions.

Who knew Parliament had a gym? Also, who’s the one taking the picture for him?

3. The Effortless Selfie

We wonder who looks this good after a run.

4. The Jump Shot

Nice font.

5. Mr. Mischievous

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 10.59.27 am

Mr. Baey’s funny side comes out in this one. Who says mischief is only limited to young children? Just look at that evil grin on his face.

6. The Model

This photoshoot was for Harper’s Bazaar. If Baey ever quits politics, we know which industry he could easily go into. Also, we like that he talks about himself in the third person.

7. The Hottest Dad

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 11.06.43 amSource

You don’t have to be in Mediacorp to qualify to be hottest dad. Baey kills the competition with that tousled hair, steely gaze, and half smile.

8. My Bae

The pun is strong in this one.

9. The Dutiful Dad

Baey proves that men can hold their own at doing household chores too.

10. The Steely Gaze

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 11.25.35 amSource

We think this is one of his best-taken selfies, and 449 others think so too.

11. The Artsy Photo

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 11.32.41 am

What Instagram account would be complete without a profound, deep picture?

Appropriate filter, check. Intentional blurring of a human subject, check.

12. The Opera Singer

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 11.45.00 amSource

We never knew Baey could do Teochew opera too. His final look makes him totally unrecognisable from his initial picture. Dat eyeshadow.

13. The Questionable Fashion Choice

14. The D’aww Moment

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 11.55.13 am

Baey wished his former Chinese teacher a Happy Teachers’ Day; and his teacher said that she had received his wish with great happiness and surprise. She thanked him for not forgetting him.

There’s nothing quite as touching when a student reunites with his or her ex-teacher, and realise that they still remember each other. Baey may be a busy politician, but he knows how to thank those he’s grateful to.


15. The Hotdog Legs

The original Hot Dog Legs Instagram here.

16. The Weird Photo Choice

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 12.01.59 pm

Although the captions are a tribute, the picture is creepy. The dark, vacant eyes that stare out into an unknown corner, and the ancient lantern…

17. The Elderly Pleaser

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 12.06.40 pm

We see his charms extend all the way to the old too.

18. Mr Sir Stamford Raffles

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 5.22.33 pm

No self-respecting Singaporean doesn’t have one of these Sir Stamford Raffles photos. Baey’s got the mysterious, cryptic, one-word caption right, along with really weird hashtags. #runwithBYK #runbymself

19. The First Post

Screen Shot 2015-02-02 at 12.16.08 pm

We scrolled through one thousand over posts to finally arrive at his very first picture. Compared to the hundreds he now gets for his pictures, he used to get only ten!

Maybe if you scroll all the way down and leave a comment on his first post, Mr Baey will follow you back too.
