About funeral and obnoxious people

I have always wondered if some people actually know the appropriate behaviour that should be don when you are in a cemetery or even when you are present at the deceased place.

More importantly, I thought you need to be polite and observe the procession with utmost silence, deep cogitation with your own thoughts and more importantly, not to laugh or have fun joking around with other visitors.

With no sensitivity being shown towards the family members of the deceased, I shudder to think how these people will educate their young ones about such matters.

And I do not think that talking about the rise of COE, the latest football results and about HDB flats is going to help the deceased.

Please, she had just ended her small judgement day and in need of prayers. If you do not wish to give any, refrain from talking such issues.

At times I am surprised as how such people can thrive talking about such matters in front of a dead body. Worse, they do not have any black hairs.

Dunia kata pergi, kubur kata mari.


Son Found Alive After Funeral

A British woman who had a funeral for a man she believed to be her son has discovered that her child is still alive.

The articles said that they are contacting the man’s real family. Wondering if do they really know who he really is? This is very tragic. Somehow, this also adds to the arguments about how eye-witnesses can be horrible mistaken.

I bet it was really awkward trying to convince his own friends and family that: “No, seriously guys! I’m not dead!” 🙂
