Qing Ming is approaching, went to Choa Chu Kang Columbarium to 拜 my father.


This bus service 405 from Boon Lay Bus Interchange that goes to Old Choa Chu Kang Road only operates on the following days :

(1) Qing Ming - actual day and 2 weekends (Sat/Sun) before and after Qing Ming

(2) Good Friday

(3) First Ramadan/Hari Raya Puasa/Hari Raya Haji - actual day

(4) Deepavali - actual day ad the weekend (Sat/Sun) before Deepavali

(5) All Souls's day


Went there on 23rd Mar and the bus stop along the road there, luckily there's no traffic jam.

The tree was there last year but this year, it has turn bald


Didn't notice this banana tree last year

  3. and this Columbarium is very well maintained and i guess the praying and offering gets easier.. unlike those old style cemetery i went, the ancestors grave were not well planned, so it was rather challenging for us..
