Memoirs Of My Mom’s Funeral..

Filed under: Family & Friends — Yatz @ 11:54 pm

DISCLAIMER : This entry might contain some images that will freak the shit out of you..So just be prepared for the images or you can just leave once and for all..
Ok..I can start my story now..Hahaha..
Alright..It’s nothing hardcore in this entry actually..
Just some pics of the funeral of my mom recently, 28th-30th of April 2006, at the parking lot of my house (refer to Rest In Peace, My Beloved Mom)..
Well, some of you might think I’m freaking crazy, snapping pics of the funeral and stuffs..
But hey, that’s my mom..This is the one and only funeral for my mom..I don’t think it’s bad to take some pics of it for the family album collection..
And of course, for those who didn’t came or not being able to come to the funeral and felt sorry for not being here with me, these are the pics for you..
Some did sent their sincere regards to me through those who came..So I think you can look over the pics, out of your curiosity what was happening during the funeral..

*The 1 who handled all of the things*

Well, I don’t know..Try to look for others instead of this 1 here..I doubted their effort in the job..
All of the pics are people-empty and in daylight..The place was fulled with people at night, but I’m too busy to take pics at night, with prayers ritual took place..

*Fast work*

Honestly, I do think the fees are over-charged and some stuffs were not done correctly, precisely, and perfectly..
They did some follow-up though, as in providing my family some good information about the underworld, ceremony, and all the follow-ups after the funeral..
Yeah, still lots of things to do even after the funeral..
There’s a rule called 7 X 7 = 49 Days or something like that..Meaning there are some procedures, rules and regulations my family need to follow for 49 days, starting from the day my mom died..
The 7 X 7 is actually equals to 7 days a week for 7 weeks..Therefore, 7 X 7 = 49 days..
The first week, which was last Wednesday, 3rd of May 2006, we had to find some nuns to perform a prayers ritual on her, in a meaning to free her from sufferings..
Then yesterday, 9th of May 2006, is the day where her spirit / soul is coming back to our home to pay a visit on us before spending her entire life in the underworld, and waiting for reincarnation..
So the people from the casket funeral service were here to help us..That’s what I call a good follow-up, albeit over-charged fees and things done in a dishonest way..
After this, we have to find nuns again to perform prayers ritual on her on the 3rd week, 5th week, and lastly the 7th week..
Once again I would like to express my appreciation to my friends who attended the funeral and especially to Tai Chee Lim for following us to the Cheras Crematorium..
