Visit to High 5 Bread Town

Last week I visited the Biggest stand alone Bread Factory in South East Asia, together with the First ever High 5 Bread Town Museum in Malaysia.

All the way it’s High 5 Bread Town, Shah Alam, home of High 5 bread and Silver Bird cakes (yum).

Thanks Nicgan and Michelle for giving me the ride all the way there. :)

The tour brought us through their bread museum – Bread of Yesteryear.

the bread of yesteryear

Talking about bread starting from 3000BC.

That’s almost 5000 years ago, in the Egyptian era.

Then we walked through the Romans age to see how breads were doing then.

Bread business was great in the Romans, using yeast to produce fragrant bread, but then the culture soon died and the whole western world was chucked into the dark ages.

Then came the Vikings who brought in donut-like breads (breads with holes).

Bread production and business peaked during the middle ages and soon finer & whiter breads were produced.

“Have some tea with bread, sir?”

Of course these were just brief description of the history, you can actually pay like RM15 per person to visit the museum yourself in Shah Alam. You can even buy cheaper Silver Bird products at the shop at the end of the museum (show you later).

Then we walked through a typical olden day’s bakery.

Looking at those breads made me damn hungry.

Olden day’s toasters. Damn cute.

For a moment we were brought to the future to catch a glimpse of the bread of the future.

Actual size. Hand for comparison.

Cute huh? Wonder when would these come along.

Rows and rows of breads, someone pass me the butter.

Finally some shopping!

selling silver bird products

I bought a box of Silver Bird Royal Chocolate Cake (the blue box on the top rack) which was absolutely divine! Yummiest! ^^

The fun part began when we were brought into the workshop where we’re to bake with Celebrity Chef Ismail with High 5 bread!


It’s kinda funny seeing the Chef playing with his High 5 breads, prancing around in front. LOL.

Throughout the baking, we were taught how to bake mini-pizzas with High 5 Breads.

Notice there a puff carved “N N” on it. Stands for Nuffnang, creative work of Michelle. :D

Here’s a better photo from the press photo batch.

In case you want the recipes, here they are. Feel free to copy down.

In the end, turned out there was a mini contest going on with the group and our group miraculously won!

I have no idea how. But I guess it’s all thanks to Michelle’s handiwork of dough-playing (which I didn’t take any photo of, someone destroyed the bread samples before I have the chance to take T_T).

michelle and her dough

We made so many types of bread with the dough.

Twister bread, Danish bun, mini croissant, etc.

It was so fun doing it.

But yay! We won a toaster each.

If you want to be part of the fun, High 5 recently launched a “Jom Rasa & Menang” contest which ends this 31st August. You can win an 16GB IPAD!

All you need to do is to eat High 5 Bread, collect the bar code on the side of the loaf of High 5 bread, download the contest form here and participate!

Thanks for the tour and baking session High 5. It’s been such a thrill! (and for the free toaster ;))
