Because the great-grandparents’ grave is one huge jungle. Excellent fengshui because we can see the seas and have the hills at the back. I bet great-grandparents must have been filthy rich last time because the grave is soooooo huge.

Phua Chu Kang little helpers. (Btw, it can costs up to RM400-RM500 to clear the whole place up but we only clear enough space in front. We want great-grandparents to commune with nature mah. Or wait we strike lottery first in order to be able to afford that amount of money. )

And this is a little history. Do you see those graves which are covered with cement on the top? These are graves of leprosy sufferers. Long time ago, they put these leprosy sufferers in cemented tomb to prevent infection. Apparently, many of these people who died during that era mostly died of tuberculosis and other infectious diseases.

Leprosy is a chronic disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae, an acid-fast, rod-shaped bacillus. The disease mainly affects the skin, the peripheral nerves, mucosa of the upper respiratory tract and also the eyes, apart from some other structures.

There, some history lessons. And too bad, there are no photos of SYTs in micro-minishorts on the hills to share with you all. Or half-naked hunks with biceps and triceps. Only Phua Chu Kangs offering grave cleaning services starting from RM50.
