Print out the API Map.
Directional Signs hung on red & white tapes will guide you to the tombs in the API Map.
Placard describing whose tomb you are standing before will be displayed.

The directional signs and information placards will be maintained by API weekly.

The Map will be updated on a weekly basis on new tombs discovered.

API hopes that self-guided walking tours at Bukit Brown Cemeterywill help raise greater public awareness of the rich heritage found there. The site is set to be redeveloped for housing.

Here is a poem I wrote some years ago. It seem appropriate now, and I delicate it to those who sleeps in Bukit Brown....
.
Let me dream while I can,
.
Let me see the stars while I can,
.
Let me cry, let me laugh,
.
Let me hold you in my arms, Let me be
.
One day I may dream no more,
.
One day I may not wake up,
.
But do remember me, let me live on,
.
Don't ever forget that I ever exist.
.
A man's life is so short, in a twinkle he is gone.
.
There's so much to see, so much to discover.
.
Wouldn't you hold my hand, and together let's fly to the stars
.
And one day when I am very, very old, let me close my eyes,
.
Let me dream forever.

Are you with the government? API would love to be your Guide to Bukit Brown, because we have many friends there waiting to meet you. And maybe, just maybe, Bukit Brown could be spared, for the current and future generations of Singaporeans to come.
