It’s just another day at the newsroom, one tag leads to another.. As I Wikied a religious funeral rites, I got myself wondering if one day people would take funeral as moment to celebrate the life of the deceased beloved instead of taking it as moment to mourn a loss.
I know that I’d love people to appreciate the life (and work) instead of mourning about the dead.
So far, just 25 hectares out of a planned 500 have been developed at San Diego Hills Memorial Park in Karawaci, West Java.
The memorial park has manicured lawns and tree-shaded roads that wind to the hilly compound, a contrast to public cemeteries that are often unkempt.
When relatives skip grave upkeep fees would only mean one thing – eviction.
The gimmick of the memorial park is that once the funeral service is over, people can row a boat across the lake or.. have lunch in the soon-to-be opened Italian restaurant.
You don’t have to worry to get choked on your Ravioli or if your boat capsizes.. You are (do I need to stress this again?) in Funmetery.
Oh.. I nearly forgot to mention that the Hills has A wedding chapel on a hill with splendid views of the lake — and the graves.
I heard the bells ringing.. Better check with the mortician if it’s a wedding bell or other sort.
