Training: Creating Equal Opportunities for All

Transiting from his position as an Applied Mathematics undergraduate in National University of Singapore, Choo Po Yen ventured bravely into the baking industry with a heart full of aspiration to become a pastry chef.

e2i’s Team Baking Day

In conjunction with breaking the Singapore Book of Records—with a 60 metre-long wholemeal sugar-free filling buns—for the longest line of packaged bread on 15th October 2020 helmed by Creative Culinaire, The School, the CEO of the Employment & Employability Institute, e2i, Mr Gilbert Tan, also led his team to prepare 30 packets of bread as a contribution under the Baker 4.0 initiative.

Creative Culinaire Thanks You for the Record Breaking Event!

The Record Breaking Event held on the 15th October 2020 is organised by Creative Culinaire, The School, and supported by the Employment & Employability Institute, e2i.


History was made yesterday on World Bread Day when 22 bakeries all over the island came together to bake the longest wholemeal sugar-free filling buns. Measuring at 60 metres, the baked marvel broke the Singapore Book of Records. Conducted in hopes of bridging gaps in the baking industry with emerging talent under NTUC e2i’s Baker 4.0 initiative, the goal of the event was met. A stellar success, the breads were also donated to Food From The Heart as part of a community outreach.

Pure Pandan

The COVID-19 pandemic has sent many businesses into a tailspin – some have been forced to shut, others had to scramble to take their business online, and many have suffered an irreversible loss of income in the near-term.

And someone who is no stranger to change is Mark Ng, the founder of local cake shop Pure Pandan, who quit his civil service job to perfect the art of making chiffon cakes.
