Tin’s Grandfather passing away – the events of the day

Here are the pictures of the day. It wasn’t a gloomy day like at a funeral. In fact it was the opposite. Most people were happy. There were the monks praying in a large group of which I failed to take a single photo. Then there was the preparation of a huge amount of food for all of the guests in which I happily joined in and had a lot of fun. By the evening all the guests had left except for the close family and myself. We drunk and ate  for probably the sixth time that day.

The coloured sand – so beautiful. Placed by hand by the monks.

  1. This is beyond gorgeous. What a beautiful way to honor a memory. I wish we did things like that here. It’s all yawn-y and black attire, blerg.

    So in the pictures (I think 2,3, and 7), that’s colored sand? WOW. And hand placed by the monks? How amazing. That is beyond impressive. It’s a true celebration of life.

    • Well I definitely want a party at my funeral…you’re invited (50 years in the future-I’m an optimist with a touch of realism, gotta die someday 🙂 )

      In Bangladesh at a wedding they used coloured sand to make decorations all over the ground in amazing coloured patterns.
      I love how Asia is so colourful. The luscious nature, peoples bright coloured clothes, intricately decorated vehicles and houses.
      London as well as Berlin is a load of grey, brown and some black. Nothing wrong with these colours, but what happened to the rest of the spectrum?
