Kong-Kong's Resting Place

On Palm Sunday (20 March 2005), we collected Kong-Kong's ashes from the crematorium. Mummy, Yee Yee and Sam Yee had, a few days earlier, bought a beautiful ceramic urn. It was bluish-green in colour with chinese floral motif.

After the crematorium staff secured the urn with a bright red ribbon, we then took a short drive to the Western Road cemetary. Six new niches were prepared at Poh-Poh's grave. We had a brief ceremony at the grave and Kong-Kong was laid to rest.

[Kong-Kong's resting place: Kong-Kong's niche is the one with the freshly laid cement]

Kong-Kong... rest in peace. Amen.

Happy Easter Angie and Bart! As if I can't wish you guys in person. Hahaha.

I have never been to a Christian wedding or funeral before. So, looking at your Kong Kong's resting place, is a nice intro on the simplicity and yet meaningful ceremony. God bless!

Peter Liew: More info about the cemetary? I very scared of what you're going to ask-lah... ;o)

Peter Tan: Amen

5xmom: Happy Easter... once you're in cyberworld, this is not surprising. And yah, Christian ceremonies are pretty straight to the point and very meaningful.
