I decided to head down on a rainy Saturday morning to Bukit Brown to observe the Qingming ceremony taking place there and although initially a bit worried that the morning showers might spoil my plan, but i was duly rewarded with some nice photos and also got to join a family looking to remember their ancestors in their own special way.

While going through Google to read about Qingming, i came across this unique search result page when you type "qinming" which Google put up to remember Qingming. I must say, pretty neat work !
