Ching Ming Fes­ti­val, a day when fam­ily mem­bers get together and remem­ber the departed ones.

My grand­par­ents’ grave.

It is always the biggest fam­ily gath­er­ing after Chi­nese New Year.

Uncles, cousins and sister.

Joss papers and flow­ers as offerings.

As tra­di­tion, guys will do the incense offer­ing first fol­low by girls.

As tra­di­tion, burn­ing joss papers and paper offer­ings never change for so many years.

Burn­ing all joss papers and paper offerings.

But wait, if you can’t change the tra­di­tion, then change the things to burn. Let’s burn some LV bags.

Paper LV bags.

Oh wait, it reads WF not LV. Damn, paper offer­ings also got pirated version!

P/S: More pic­tures on my Face­book album.

@Swee Ping
Then it doesn’t make much dif­fer­ence up here or down there already… sad…

Got take, but didn’t want to post. It doesn’t feel right post­ing those close ups shots on my blog. Hahaha…
