Spring Cleaning

Literally, that is how it can be translated in english....
every year, on the 5th day of the 4th month in lunar calendar, we chinese (buddhist/taoist) has this practise of visiting the grave of the ancestors....
to pray, to clean, and to honour our beloved one...

Here are some shots.....















A "panaroma" on the cemetary...



look like terraces house


Like normal house, some like it to be painted differently


Some like it to be on a slope....



Food Offerings and material offerings


Food offering for the "God of earth"


Paper money for the beloved one...


Colourful papers are scattered/placed/decorated


Some different view....
