    Seri­ously, don’t know what you are try­ing to express in this movie, that life in Sin­ga­pore is hope­less??? Life need not be like that and most of our par­ents aren’t like that either…

    Well done! Enjoy­ing thor­oughly! Will def­i­nitely show it to my girls though they prob­a­bly have no clue what is all about but never mind. It reminded me of my own par­ents espe­cially my father who passed away long ago. Being a par­ent myself now, I can truly under­stand the hard­work of par­ent­ing and but within that hard­work it brings immense joy!

    Absolutely beau­ti­ful and heart­warm­ing! Well done!

    I grew up eat­ing the loafs and bread, going down the block to buy from the old uncle with his big bas­ket, always around the time of 4-5pm, those were the days, my child­hood days, thanks for bring­ing it back and you folks have done a great job record­ing, pre­serv­ing and shar­ing a piece of Singapore’s local cul­ture and history!

    I’ve seen many videos about Sin­ga­pore + fad­ing her­itage before but I really like this one. Its not just about the craft but really a story about the per­son behind it — why he does what he does. Most of all I love the par­al­lel it makes between the mold­ing bread and mold­ing chil­dren! Not to men­tion the cin­e­matog­ra­phy is beau­ti­ful. Look­ing for­ward to more!

    Love this video; as a par­ent of two pri­mary school boys, it’s like the voiceover is speak­ing my thoughts; as a Sin­ga­porean of a cer­tain “vin­tage” who grew up with this type of bread, it is a sen­ti­men­tal jour­ney. Thank you.

    There’s a melan­cholic feel to the short clip, which appears to be pro­mot­ing par­ent­hood in a sub­tle yet pes­simistic way. This appears to over­shadow the objec­tive of high­light­ing tra­di­tional bakeries/confectioneries. But over­all, the clip is well-edited, pro­fes­sional and artis­tic. Well-done!
