Bishan & Its Cantonese Origins (in Mandarin)

Description
讲座简介
这个讲座将分享一个多世纪来,碧山的时代变迁。
对比现在的碧山组屋区和30多年前的碧山亭,大部分的碧山镇座落在原来的广东人坟场上。广东人坟场在新加坡走了将近两百年之路,通过华人墓碑,我们可以进一步认识广东人社群共祖的习俗和消失的行业。这两百年来,碧山亭同时见证了新加坡从殖民地、自治、加入马来西亚与独立的历史进程,传承了华人社会礼节与孝道的意义。
从前的碧山亭除了是个广东人坟场外,还有个建在坟场旁,叫做甘榜山亭的活人社区,居民有广东人、福建人、潮州人和少数印度人。大家住碧山亭的山,喝碧山亭的水,靠山住山,靠水喝水,已经在碧山绿水间磨合同化了。
