RANDTS will last a thousand years.

- Albert

Mr. Burns once told me that

It's not about what we did in the past, but what we can continue to do in (the) future.

Since I have nothing better to do lately (I'm lying about that honestly), I'm going to compensate for what I haven't contributed by posting at least 3-4 posts in a week. Therefore, I'll be shooting two birds with one camera, haha! And posting that little/much in a week isn't that difficult when I have shitloads of pictures to share! Okay, not shitloads. That's not really an adjective, but you get the gist, yes?

If any of you RANDTSters or RANDTS supporters read my blog, you would know that these pictures (they're my personal favourites of the lot,
taken during the Ching Ming festival celebrated a month ago...) have been posted in my personal blog, but if you don't, then sit back, relax and enjoy!

I'll be posting more of my favourites in RANDTS soon. Feedback and comments are welcomed with open arms!

    Nice pictures. I remembered Ching Ming as a day where My family & relatives get together & help pray for our elders, clean the grave & talk about old times. Although it can be hard work sometimes (like burning ghost paper & joss sticks & cleaning the grave from weeds) but it nice that everyone gets together to do something for a change. (^__^)

    Yeah, and surprisingly, graveyards don't seem to be that scary with lots of people around, haha.

    But with modern times, one do not need to clean graves anymore. Most of the graveyards I went to during my last trip back were taken care by this bunch of people who're paid to spray some poison on weeds, like lalang and etc etc.

    It's not that expensive, and it usually comes with 'the package'... People strive for convenience these days... and others provide them for profits. =)

    My family prefer to do it ourselves. we sort of feel like it's our duty to do so. It's the least we can do for our elders....

    I like the pic of the joss sticks... You Da Ma'am! ;)

    Your pictures have the look and feel of a Chinese fantasy land.

    Oh well, I do feel a bit guilty now... Hmm, yeah, what you've mentioned is true. It's a duty to fulfill. Filial piety and the sorts.

    Thanks! I liked that picture best too! Took me quite a while to get the right depth of field with the macro mode, haha!

    Hmmmm, Albert, is that a compliment? Well, I shall take it as one, so thank you! Chinese fantasy land...haha! That phrase is funny- it cracked it up!
