Eternal neighbours

It’s the season for Qing Ming (Tomb Sweeping Day) again.

Today, we visited my maternal grandparents, who are resting in the columbarium of Tai Pei Yuen Temple, along Jalan Kemaman, off Balestier Road.

My dad brought some simple offerings for them.

The columbarium niches - high-rise living for the dead.

It comforts me to know that their urns are on the same floor, in adjoining rooms, so they won’t have to travel far to see each other.
