清明节

The Qing Ming Festival ( 清明节 ), also popularly known as the “Tomb-Sweeping Day” falls on 5th April, a Thursday this year. During this traditional Chinese festival, Chinese families would visit the tombs or crematoriums to pay respects to their ancestors.

Burial Or Cremation?

Recently, my guys and I conducted a burial service. Luckily, the weather was alright that day. For those who have not been to Choa Chu Kang Cemetery to witness a burial, it indeed is much tougher than cremation – at least for the pallbearers. The usual procedure would be to lower the casket down into…

Does it really get better with time?

The passing of someone really dear to us can feel like a break up; just that this time round, we know for sure that amendments can’t be made anymore. Words unsaid will always be left that way and chances we never took would always be left as that. This reminds me of the lyrics to…

Funeral Expense Reimbursement? That’s right!

Death is inescapable for us all. As we die however, the living sometimes fret over what is left behind – hefty medical bills, funeral expenses and needless to say, a heavy heart. Funeral expenses can be manageable for some but to others, it can be a sum too huge to bear. Fortunately, the government has in…

Life and Death and the In-Between

I coincidentally attended a funeral and a baby shower on the very same day recently. It then dawned upon me how intricately linked life and death is. Seeing the birth of a newborn, seeing babies are always a joyous occasion. Facing death however, is at the other end of the spectrum - solemn and sad.…
