Early ALL SOULS DAY !!

My dear huby has been hiding & keeping his feeling of guilt for the past 4 years since the birth of his precious sons. Reason being he has been unable (due to unforeseen circumstances) to bring his boys to visit his ancestors. Same as the buddhist, according to my mom, one is sort of oblighed to "inform" the ancestors on the arrival of new addition to the family. So huby (being the "hau soon" type too) has always looked forward to the chance to fulfil this obligation but time wasn't cooperating well.
All souls day is suppose to be in November & since we were near the festival this time, huby made a vow to perform the rituals with his parents & introduced his boys to the Heng ancestors.


Huby's paternal grandparents & great grandparents were all buried at the same place. So during the entire session, all i heard was them mentioning to the boys:
this is lau ma, lau kung, lau lau ma & lau lau kung ................
Guess it was still too early for the boys to understand. All they were interested was playing with the candles & fires............
It was a very quick session. I'm sure huby was very happy!
PEACE BE WITH YOU !!
