Bread Man back in action

Remember Bread Man a.k.a Tan Lam Siong?

Elections may be over, but Tan sure isn’t loafing around. The former Potong Pasir candidate is back in action, distributing more bread.

Truly the modern-day Anpanman, the hero who saves the world by giving away pieces of himself. Anpanman is made of bread so that sentence isn’t quite as peculiar as it might seem.


In another mission to save the world community, Bread Man headed to Toa Payoh Lorong 8, Potong Pasir, King George’s Ave, and French Road yesterday (11 Oct) to give out bread. This time, instead of distributing loaves of Gardenia, Bread Man decided to give out loaves of cheaper High 5 bread.

Nonetheless, his visit “drew many smiles, as usual”.

This uncle can certainly bear testimony to that. He’s probably thinking of making an apple sandwich too, perfect for tea break.

More smiles, but this ma’am seems a little paiseh to take the bread. Must be the camera pointing at her face.

Everyone gets a loaf! Check out how thrilled these grannies are. Maybe they were having a conversation and were glad Bread Man and his bread could join the party.

He also checked out the grocery bags of unsuspecting residents, only to find no bread in their bags. Of course, he decided to give them some bread.

And moaaaaar bread! The photographer was probably too dizzy with excitement over the possibility of himself being the next bread receiver that he could not focus properly.

We don’t blame you.

Bread indeed talks

Tan is a volunteer and legal adviser for Project Awareness and Happy People.

He believes that bread helps “create bonds and open communication lines” and is a symbol of their “care and concern for the basic needs of the people” around them.

Looks like Bread Man will continue giving out bread for quite some time.
