On May 30, 2019, PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, released a festive short film celebrating Hari Raya.

The film is based on the Malay proverb ‘Air dicincang tidak akan putus’ which roughly translates to ‘water doesn’t break apart when you chop it’.

It depicts the childhood of two orphaned brothers – Din and Zul – and their eventual separation when Din gets adopted by a wealthy family.

Here is the video:

Bagus.

Reactions from Singaporeans

Upon its release, responses have been unanimously positive, with many praising the touching message of kinship in the video:

With some questioning why PUB was doing this to them:

Fyi, here are our four national taps.

Some have also requested for a second part to the short film, as they are curious about what eventually happened to Zul:

Indeed, we hope PUB follows up with another video soon.
