Besides Chinese New Year, Ching Ming is the time where most of my family members will get together to visit, pray and make offerings to our ancestor. As usual, there traffic at the cemetery area is OUT-OF-CONTROL. I am not going to eleborate on the massive jam.
What i am trying to tell you is, we sure know how to fully utilised the twice a year gathering.
Normally, what do you bring to offer your ancestor?
From my observation, fruits and 'pau' is a must. Chicken rice is another favourite item on the praying table.
But if you ask me what we brought to offer our ancestor? Without any doubt, my answer is :
A BUFFET LINE :)
As you can see, there is at least 25 items on the praying table. Big party huh?
And what do we do with the blessed foods after the ceremony?
MAKAN la...( my family's tradition...eat on the spot )
Now its our 'Family Bonding' time . LOL.
But as i browse through the pictures, i realised something is missing.
We have 70% of meat, 20% of flour-made items and 10 % of fruits.
Where is the VEGE?
So i guess we are just a carnivorous family .!! :)
