Graves and art – Bukit Brown

Today in Singapore I went on another walk around Bukit Brown. Today’s walk centres around Chew Joo Chiat. We heard stories about his life and visited his grave as well as those of his two wives. We also visited other people connected to him or from the same era such as Nee Soon and other members of the Singapore chapter of Tongmenghui which was a secret society/resistance against the Qing Dynasty. 

I am always surprised at how many new things there are to be learned each time I return. As always there are so many interesting details on the many tombs that we passed.
