Remembering amah, the 49th day

Can the dead talk? Apparently so. The picture above means "Yes".

It's been 49 days.

This is a part of being Chinese. What more when I hail from Penang, the land where idol worships rule.

But I don't bow down to idols, I don't burn the joss sticks, I don't eat food being worship to idols, I don't take part in rituals. I am only there to pay my respect to amah. I take pictures. And my family knows. They separate out the food for me, what is edible and what is not.

Praise God.
