清明时节雨纷纷
路上行人欲断魂。
借问酒家何处有?
牧童遥指杏花村。

I went back to Kuala Kangsar, my dad's hometown for Qing Ming 清明. Left KL on Friday evening and got back yesterday afternoon. During these 3D/2N, we have visited total 4 graves in two different graveyards. My great grandpa was located in a small town called Batu Kurau. While my Great grandma and grandparents were buried in Kuala Kangsar.

As usual I bring along my Nikon D70 to snapshot pictures for sharing... Since most of the people snapshot the grave and those people who visited the grave... i wanna to be different. Here is my shots

Great grandpa's grave

The authorities - According to my aunt

Gold cup... hmmm... not the gold cup in Europe or Africa :p

Colorful paper that covered @ the back of the grave.
Represent this grave has been visited...

That's all folks... so do you celebrate Qing Ming? if so, how do you celebrate?
