High 5 Bread Town, the first of its kind in the world was officially opened by The Honourable Minister Of International Trade & Industry on 25th May 2005. The brainchild of Silver Bird Group Managing Director Dato Jackson Tan, High 5 Bread Town is a truly unique attraction of its class. High 5 Bread Town is the architectural masterpiece showcase of the RM100 mil state-of-the-art plant of Silver Bird Group factory located on 6.07ha plant in Shah Alam. High 5 Bread Town was certified in the Malaysia Book of Records as the “First Bread Museum” in Malaysia.

Adults - RM 15.00
Students - RM 15.00
Children - RM 12.00
Senior Citizen (above 55) - RM 12.00
Children (below 3) - Free Entrance

If the entrance fee is charged at the above rate, you can be rest assured that the conducted tour of this Bread Museum is not kindergarten stuff. We are very fortunate that we managed to get the management to waive the entrance fee just for our USJ residents.

Well tell you what Squirrel, get about 6-10 kids together from Mon - Sunday (except Wednesday - bad day because production plant downtime for weekly maintenance and hygiene cleanup!) and PM me, I am sure I can ask the management team to organise the tour and waive the charges.

Furthermore, there will be free refreshments and a take-away gift bag full of goodies too! :D

Sentinel, 2 pax from my side.Logicman, its difficult for me to coordinate, I am sure PC Yeoh would be organising another trip in a few weekends, best to PM him, he is the president of the association. I only assist to make arrangements with the company's management.

As at this moment we have 22 confirmed and another 6 will anytime confirm by the end of the day. It looks like after I posted the photos of the museum, the parents were able to excite their children and one of them shyly admitted that he was also equally excited and shyly asked me if he can tag along. Well, we do welcome adults as well but priority is given to the kids. If you want to drive and follow the bus, well by all means. It is not cheap to go on your own seeing that there is an entrance charge. It is FREE when you follow us. There will be adults accommpanying the kids. I will be one of them reliving my second childhood!

Will provide more infomation on registration. You can PM me the full name name, address and age of the child to book a place. But you still have to fill up the form (pls download it) for we still need parental/guardian approval. Bring the form and submit to us on the date of departure. The insurance is covered by the school bus insurance.

So for the tag along adults, do we need to fill up forms, too?

The response is overwhelming. We have to announce that we cannot take in anymore children and that also includes 'children' in their mid forties and fifties. It looks like we may have to plan a second one at a later date.

One father called me and said "Aiyeoh Yeoh (by the way you are right, he is an Indian) I thought of dumping my two rascals aged 10 and 11 with you for 3-4 hours so that I can take my wife for a romantic dinner and now you say full house. What meaning dah." He sounded very upset. But when I told him that it is 9am in the morning he exclaimed "Aiyoh yoh how stupid I am. Aineh, can plan something at night?"

Anyway, the USJRA will be conducting educational field trips for the next 6 months visiting places of production of consumable goods to see how things we take for granted are made. Our next visit is a chocolate factory and if all system go the Proton plant. Someone suggested that we should also plan a visit to Genting Highlands to see how gambling is conducted. Sorry folks, our visit is strictly confined to children.

Nearly 50 of us in a 44-seater bus and two cars had a good time at the High5 Bread Museum.

The tour started with the tour to the toilet first as we were told that we could not piss anywhere we like once we were in the premise. The bread has to taste the same. The visit to the museum ending at the ‘tourist shop’ took approximately an hour. We were not allowed to snap any photo as this is a high security area. Strangely, I could do so freely in Mindef or Ministry of Defence. So sorry no pic except our group foto to make you all envy about our ‘melawat sambil belajar.’

There were a lot to see and the children were all excited about how the daily bread placed at the breakfast table are made – beginning with the white flour and ending with the sliced bread. Just like any tour, shopping is on the itinerary. There were all kinds of bread, fruit cakes and buns all products of Stanson and for the first time I saw with my own eyes children buying bread but don’t know for sure they are eating them eventually or buying them for fun. Before we left the factory there was a farewell gift for everybody consisting of yes, you guessed it right - bread. On top of what my wife bought, it looked like it is going to be bread for breakfast, tea, lunch, hi tea, dinner and I guess supper as well for me. I don’t think after this I shall be able to stand the sight of bread for a long long time to come.

There is such a thing as the Food Act 1985 and Food Labelling Ordinance, tsd. Good try though...

Journey to bread town
By LIM CHIA YING
chiaying@thestar.com.my

Some 40 children from USJ and Subang Jaya had a field day visiting the High 5 bread factory at the Silverbird Complex in Shah Alam last weekend.

The visit, organised by the USJ Residents Association (USJRA), was intended as an educational eye-opener to children on how goods are manufactured and processed in a particular industry or organisation.
