Cemetery Past

Why is this bird angry? It has more to do with exhumation than iphones, I think.
Welcome to Bukit Brown cemetery, the first ancient site we've found since 2009.
Bukit Brown was discovered and researched by my tiny parents, shown here.
Some graves are a tad overgrown.
This nature allows for a lot of birds and wildlife not often seen in Singapore.
Many graves were from during the Japanese occupation in WW2. I suspect the grave carving was not actually done during the war, though.
Many graves are being exhumed for the expansion of a road. You can register your relatives' graves somehow, in support of a new resting place for them I think.
In preparation for her new home, this woman has a new pair of earrings, it seems. Intriguing.
