RIP, grandma...

my grandma passed away in her sleep peacefully last Thursday morning... and after dad called me and inform me about it, I took half day off work and went over my uncle's place to help out on things...

She passed away at the age of 97, and after adding years to her age (Chinese calculation thingy), it was a whooping 103 years old!! The funeral ceremony was held on Saturday, and all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren add up to more than 100 people... it was a grand send off for her...


the cover for her coffin. this masterpiece (including the coffin of course) has a current market value of more than RM20,000... no kidding...


taking a last look at grandma...


the memorial record book... recording people who came over to pay their last respect to grandma

The R.I.P word usually gives me the creeps, cause my mom once said "if it aint rest in peace, it should mean rise if possible". Anyway, my deepest condolence too. Keep her near to your hearts.
