    Spotted MP Baey recently? Maybe not

    WILL the real Baey Yam Keng please stand up?

    Photographs of the Tampines GRC Member of Parliament and his lookalikes, posted on social media, are causing some netizens to do a double take.

    On Friday, Mr Baey received an image from a fan who had snapped a photo of an unsuspecting individual on the train who bore an uncanny resemblance to the 43-year-old MP.

    Mr Baey then decided to post the image, alongside an image of himself, on his Instagram and Facebook accounts.

    The post has since received 251 likes on Instagram and 119 likes on Facebook.

    Mr Baey also asked for more submissions of images of his doppelgangers.

    It spurred others to contribute more photos of people who look like him.

    Mr Baey has posted two more sets of collages on his social media platforms since then, with the hashtag #BYKlookalikes.

    "I thought it was quite funny...and a fun way to start off the weekend," he said.

    However, his last post on the topic was on Monday as he "does not want to overdo it".
