Tung Chek (Winter Solstice) and Thooi Nee for my late father Lim Wooi Boon   Leave a comment


Tung Chek (Winter Solstice) and Thooi Nee for my late father Lim Wooi Boon at Kew Leong Tong Lim Kongsi, Penang today Sunday, 22/12/2013. This is the first year Anniversary of the demise of my father on 1st January, 2013 as we are following the Chinese Lunar calendar – actually it is short of 10 days till 1.1.2014. As for Chinese tradition, we are required to follow the Chinese Lunar calendar. Traditionally as explained by my mother, the departed are always observed earlier in ceremonies and other celebrations dates ie we cannot observe on 1st January, 2014 as my late father’s anniversary of his demise but only today – Thooi Nee ( First Anniversary ). As my late father was the former Secretary of the Kew Leong Tong Lim Kongsi Association, he was given the great and rare honour of placement of his Ancestral Tablet in the middle section of the Ancestral Hall. Service to the Association of over 20 years is also a compulsory requirement. I was required to “carry” the Ancestral Tablet for the Taoist Priest or Sai Kong to “bless” the Ancestral Tablet so that it is “officially blessed and in commission”. After the ceremony as usual ang-pows with money were given to the Temple and the Taoist Priest. We then drove back home and I later left for another Temple in Ayer Itam. Then, it was back again for the Tung Chek Ceremony for the Clansmen Association office-bearers for which I am now a Committee Member since 4 months ago. After the prayers, we walked to Nanyang Restaurant for lunch.

More photographs on my father’s wake for 5 days – Part 3. There are so many shots taken by my photographer friends and myself so I can randomly choose these photos for record sake. Thank you to my photographer friends and to one & all relatives and friends for assisting and kind attendance our family during our bereavement.
