Sketchwalk @ Bukit Brown Cemetery

It was an insightful walk today. It's really sad that they will be
bulldozing the place to make way for a highway. It seems
progress is of value over history and culture. How will people
be connected when the ties that bind all slowly get snipped away?

Wow, beautiful pictures and drawings. :) Honestly, i couldn't care much about culture, but it is a great place where one could relax. The keep destroying ecosystems and nature here. And we don't have much to begin with. Pisses me off.

Ami: Yeah! The cemetery is actually a habitat for many animals and migratory birds, and the horses from a riding school actually cut through it too.

@Attila: Yeah. We bulldoze many things here. Yes, there is a petition but chances are the gov will bulldoze through that too...

Some of the sketches are by Urban Sketchers Singapore, a sketching group!

Yes Instagram is... amazing! When are you coming aboard!!!?

there's an opinion in the play "COOLING-OFF DAY" that I find interesting: if you cut away all heritage that is historically valued, you can create a people with short memory span. Sounds good to someone ain't it?
