They are not lonely at all

Posted on Updated on

Today is the last day of Qing Ming festival. According to Chinese believes, Qing Ming duration stretch over 20 days that is before and after 10 days of the actual Festive season.

The Choa Chu Kang Cemetery is the biggest cemetery in Singapore, located at west side of the island that takes approximately an hour to reach from my home.

This is the only burial cemetery left in operation but this also proves that many friends will be known in this special community.

My ancestors are somewhere there, the rest are their friends, a group of long living friends!

This Golden Shower tree is a very special friend of everybody. He is the Guard man of this senior home as well as the directional sign.

Some, they like to wave at you and show you the colorful smile over this windy season!

And some are so sweet and beautiful!

Some are very union, putting effort to get close to each other and cheer up the environment.

That’s why I’m glad they are not lonely at all…

      Strangely, nobody thought of open a cafe here? 😦

        Maybe it is too far outside? in Munich, were I was living for a while, one of the older cemeteries (Waldfriedhof) was surrounded by the city by now, and there where flower-shops and a cafe nearby, both living with the good income by all those old ladies, visiting the cemetery.

        We should adopt this concept and make it! But sadly, Chinese believes try not too close to cemetery as I’m sure you know why!
        Though, I’m Chinese but I’m not superstitious. I only believe they are just like us, living everywhere and traveling everywhere! 🙂

      Not a bad place but is a bit far off! Hope they will get more trees or shades if not I’ll dry out soon! 😦

    It is a very beautiful place 🙂 but, why is this the only burial cemetery left in operation? Is this the only one?

      This is under government decision, perhaps may be could more centralize. 🙂
