从碧山回溯碧山亭的二三事

A Lighter Side of History: From Kampong and Cemetery to a Housing Estate: Tracing Bishan’s Transformation Through the Years by Lee Kok Leong

*This talk will be conducted in Mandarin



昔日垒垒坟山的碧山亭如今已经发展成楼房商场林立的碧山镇,面貌焕然一新。

碧山亭,全名为广惠肇碧山亭,创立于1870年,乃广州府、惠州府和肇庆府三属人士的坟山,百余年来历经时代变迁,从土葬坟山变成火化骨灰塔。虽然不见昔日风貌,但是我们还是能够从先人墓碑上的珍贵史料了解“社群共祖”的习俗,以及广东人的传统行业。

坐落于碧山亭坟场旁的甘榜山亭本是个自给自足的活人社区,广东人、福建人、潮州人和少数印度人比邻而居,族群间的隔阂在碧山绿水间磨合同化。老一辈的居民不会忘记新加坡沦陷一小时前发生在碧山亭的最后一场战役, 汤申路一带的居民也不会忘记运作了45年的碧山亭义学——它为多少甘榜山亭与汤申一带的莘莘学子提供了宝贵的求学机会。

56日,让新加坡文史工作者李国樑先生为您娓娓道来碧山百年史,分享碧山亭七大百年文物。


Most of the Bishan housing estate sits on what used to be Peck San Theng, a Cantonese cemetery, and Kampong San Teng, a village.

Join Lee Kok Leong – a passionate museum volunteer, curator of Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital Heritage Gallery and Kwong Wai Siew Peck San Theng Heritage Centre – as he shares the story of Bishan’s transformation over the years, beginning with the history of the cemetery, the communities which resided in the village and what the tombstones reveal about the culture, traditions and professions of these communities.
