Visiting a crematorium was unnerving but since it was part of our lecture, I shook off all the goosebumps. I also expected zombie-like people working in there but alas, they were normal beings who does really well in their job. By the way, there's a lot of science and math put into their work. The embalmer lady we met had her gruesome stories to share about the bodies she works on. The photo above is the make up she puts on the deceased to make them look presentable during their service. While the second photo is the cremated remains which will then be crushed to tiny bits to get to the actual 'ashes to ashes'.
It was an eye-opening experience. This had me contemplating all the way home. How chilling and empty it might be to live a life where you have not actually lived. Best to watch After.Life to know what I mean.
