Save Bukit Brown

Reposting the photos of Bukit Brown Cemetery from the entry I made last year. Bukit Brown is such a beautiful and important place and it’s so sad that there are plans to redevelop it. Even if the heritage of Bukit Brown is thoroughly documented, it’s really not the same, is it? It’s like saying it’s ok for a species to become extinct as long as we have pictures, videos and stuffed specimens of the animals. I know Adrian will probably kill me for saying this, but I think the 4-lane road should run through a golf course instead.
