Tomb-sweeping reflection in hometown Ipoh

For my family, Qingming is not only a day to pay respect and express gratitude to our ancestors, but also for reminiscence and, above all, introspection reflecting upon whether our own selves and the living environment have been stagnant, or changed for the better or worse. For me, I am always particularly grateful to grandmother and father for preserving and transmitting to our family the positive values in the Chinese tradition as well as the modern, humanist, progressive and scientific spirit of the 1919 May Fourth New Culture Movement for personal cultivation as individuals or members of larger groups. May all of them as well as their friends and neighbours rest in peace.
