Passing Away of A Great Uncle
Words from Suzie Ong, her youngest daughter,
Heaven! That’s where Pa’s beautiful soul has gone to. Even as we mourn Pa’s passing on, we are also given the privilege to accord and honour Pa a red funeral befitting his longevity. Pa has indeed led a blissful and healthy life, right up to his ripe old age. He leaves us with an abundance of happy memories that we shall cherish forever ♡

My Blog and Comments
My mother and myself shall be away this week-end to attend our Uncle’s funeral in PJ. Deepest condolences to my Aunty (my late father’s fourth sister) and the family. My uncle had lived a very rich and happy life and I was also personally involved when I stayed with the family in Taiping during my school holidays and during my pharmacy training with the Government Medical Stores (GMS) in Petaling Jaya during varsity days. We shall surely miss you.

NOTE: The blogger shall be away in Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur for his uncle’s funeral ceremony and rites, till next coming Monday, January 25,2016. My humble apologies to all of you if I cannot view your blogs for the next few days.
As per local Malaysian of Chinese origin, the age of the dead person is added another 3 years to his original age if one dies below 90 years old. For example, Mr X died at the age of 80 years old, in his obituary the age is stated as 80 + 3 = 83 years old. As my uncle is above 90, another 5 years are added to his age of 92 on his death. Thus, the age stated is 97 years old.

Funeral of the late Seevaraju Muniandy   Leave a comment


Funeral of the late Seevaraju Muniandy, our Wesak Procession Vice-Chairman 2015 today – Saturday, November 14, 2015.

Funeral of the late Seevaraju Muniandy, our Wesak Procession Vice-Chairman 2015 today – Saturday, November 14, 2015. The Acting Chairman was Adrian Pau Kah Kheng as I was in Vietnam on a Photography Expedition during the 2015 Wesak Day. He had served the Wesak Procession diligently and loyally for the past 45 years. I have only served for about 30 over years compared to his record. We shall certainly missed him at the 2016 Wesak Procession when he came to our meetings in his “Honda No-door” – his faithful motor-cycle,


The funeral procession route was from his house at 18, Gerbang Erksine, Penang turning left to Jalan Mount Erskine > Jalan Bagan Jermal > Jalan Tanjung Tokong (passing by Balai Bomba & Penyelamat Bagan Jermal where Raju stayed for 5 years in the quarters as he was a fire-man) > Jalan Fettes > Jalan Mount Erskine turning into Mount Erskine Crematorium for cremation. His coffin was carried all the way along this route. His urn of ashes shall be kept at a hall next to this crematorium here.

In memory of the late Seevaraju Muniandy (more popularly called Raju).
His residence is at 18, Gerbang Erksine, Penang and the funeral is scheduled at 2.00pm, this coming Saturday, 14 November, 2015.
He was our Vice-Chairman of Penang Wesak Procession Committee which he served diligently and loyally for over 45 years.
“Life is uncertain – Death is certain” This is a well-known saying in Buddhism. Knowing very well that death is certain and it is a natural phenomenon that everyone has to face, we should not be afraid of death. Yet, instinctively, all of us fear death because we do not know how to think of its inevitability. We like to cling to our life and body and so develop too much craving and attachment.
Venerable K. Sri Dhammananda
May his soul rest in eternal bliss with the blessings of Lord Buddha.

My late uncle Tan Choon Toh’s funeral ( Part 2 )   4 comments



My late uncle Tan Choon Toh’s funeral ( Part 2 )
I attended my late uncle Tan Choon Toh’s funeral at Reservoir Gardens, Ayer Itam, Penang this afternoon. As my uncle has a full life even when he became blind many years back, he led a full happy life with the immediate family members. I am extremely grateful to him and my Aunty for taking care of my younger son, Chuan Shin, when he was a baby way back in 1979. My late wife told we were eternally grateful to the Tan Family for the devoted and loving care given to my younger son then. Thank you. Chuan Shin showing his gratitude also turned up on his own accord from Kuala Lumpur for the funeral. You might notice that there were smiling faces more than sorrowful faces in this series of photographs, though sometimes we were just overwhelmed by emotions that we shall miss this great man in future that we wept.
After a short procession of sending off, we were bused to Batu Gantong Crematorium where my late uncle was cremated. It was a busy day at this crematorium as many deaths in George Town were recorded in the haze caused by huge peat fires from Indonesia. Luckily my uncle’s time schedule was quicker and can be cremated here. If not, the hearse needed to be transported to another crematorium in Mount Erksine for cremation.
Rest in Peace, my Sar Te’ow (Third Maternal Uncle).

Buddha: “The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

“Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.” – Buddha
