Why does the past deserve a future? (A walk with Fabian in Hills 2 and 5...)

Description
Those old stones. Those old tombs. Those old trees. Those old stories...

Do we really need to keep them? I mean - should we even bother keeping them? Didn't someone once ask whether he should take care of the future rather than the past? Time travel to Bukit Brown with Fabian this Saturday, August 6 at 4.00pm and and find out how the past affects our present: how dirt poor immigrants transformed their fates, and bettered the circumstances for many others. What new things do old stones tell us?

Maybe - just maybe, you might hear something that convinces you our past deserves a future too!
