With the recent Ching Ming holiday and graves all over Lamma still covered with half-eaten buns, rotting fruits and open rice boxes from the holiday picnics, I paid a return visit to the Lamma Garden of Remembrance columbarium up beyond the Youth Hostel on the path to Luk Chau.

This is still one of the most exclusive places in all of HK to get buried and only a few people/year, only Lamma residents of at least 5 (?) years are granted this privilege upon special request in a very pretty, secluded columbarium which definitely cost quite a few millions to build.

Here's a picture from Dec 13, 2004 and a picture from yesterday. This means that only 17 people have been laid to rest there in 4.33 years, meaning approx 4 people/year! Really, really exclusive! Where do I sign up?

At the current rate and with Lamma's population actually shrinking a bit in the last 5 years (-300), this Lammaites-only columbarium will be spacious enough for about the next 120 years (504 niches/4). The 4 empty blocks are actually double-sided, so this is real long-term planning by our govt, appropriate for such a place. :wink:

what interests me is the two empty slots that have appeared in the middle of the wall. have there been two miracles on lamma in the past 4 years?

and what if i want to be interred there? i don't want my ashes to be stored in a used slot.
