Chinese new year is spent with loved ones and visiting relatives. I celebrated my own way. I went to visit my parents at the Catholic cemetary. The gates were locked so I watched pathetically from outside. Then I went to the Thai Buddhist temple Wat Chayamangkalaran to visit my grandparents and great grandparents. It’s been a tradition for as long as I can remember. My mum used to tell me to go visit them during CNY. I carried on the tradition.

Yes, it falls on us to maintain their last places of rest. In le Père-Lachaise (where my little sister is buried, along with a few relations) you walk along the graves of the unknown and those from the late 19th-early 20th century are abandoned. Most of them. Which makes sense: past grandchildren, no-one remembers anymore. My brother and I are the only ones left who remember our grandfather, but our children didn’t know him. Hmmm. Strong stuff. 🙂 Take care. Be bad. 🙂

Yes. It is true. It is the few things I dont mind maintaining 🙂

Sorry about the catholic cemetery being closed… (Darn catholics!)
But glad you carry the tradition. As one grows older (and none the less wiser) one realizes that (at least some elements of) tradition have to be maintained. If only for the sake of those dearly departed.

No better way for an artist to feel the scope of life than to visit those who’ve graduated. Happy belated Chinese New Year.
