Tony Tan’s bryani unites S’poreans

Besides bringing them to the yard.


Singapore’s elected president, Tony Tan, who ran his presidential campaign in 2011 promising to unite Singaporeans if he ever got elected, is sticking to his word.

He is uniting Singaporeans by cooking a giant pot of bryani.

His rice-stirring skills has prompted some locals to applaud his inclusivity.

One pro-establishment Singaporean, Poh Lan Pah, said: “From the way he stirs the rice, you can tell that he is trying to show that Singapore is a melting pot of various ethnicities and cultural practices that can blend well together.”

Others, who are less prone to reading too much into actions of ex-politicians, were quick to point out that Tony Tan is showing that he embraces everyone with an open mind.

Another slightly less status quo-supporting Singaporean, Mei Li Yew said: “By standing next to Yaacob Ibrahim, Tony Tan is showing that he is tolerant of idiots.”

Tony Tan recently went to Brunei. His visit has been construed as uniting Singaporeans. As well.
