In as much as we celebrate life and birthdays, we make room for events such as this. There’s something about the life-after that is worth celebrating too. And just like any kind of party, the setting is as significant as every other detail. This is why we ensure that we honor the life-before and the life-after of our loved ones, by choosing a place that is both perfect and close to our hearts.

The Kranji Commonwealth War Cemetery offers that kind of perfection and personal preference. It’s the memorial park for the soldiers who perished during the World War II. It shows how much Singapore celebrates the life of their unsung heroes. Every quote and epitaph reveals much lasting impression. The whole place is covered with layers upon layers of peacefulness.

The entrance is shrouded with greens and grays: trees and stones that make you feel that you are in a hallway to heaven. There are stars engraved on certain areas of the halls to remind you of greatness-that-has-been. The engraved emblems show different themes in many faiths. You’ll see intricate-designed eagles, fishes, crosses, castles, crowns, and letters. You’ll also find stones of different kinds: marbles, granites, lime stones; all of which are carved with much depth. The hallways are embroidered with names, years, and experiences, all giving you a picture of a daring life lived to the fullest.

It’s really one of those places that you can just sit and be still – recollect and reminisce. Don’t be wrong or what, it’s not like other cemeteries that invite scary stories. It’s more than that. It’s a place where silence can give you the utmost clarity and insight that you may desperately need. It has its distinctive way of reminding that life is fleeting, but if lived with the highest passion, it’s a life well spent. 

This place offers a different kind of adventure. Amid the contemporary travel that Singapore is known for, there are still places, such as this, which can uniquely offer deep perspective on heritage, life, and adventure.
