Another few more days, this year's Qing Ming will come to an end. Then we will wait for another year to celebrate "Chinese New Year" with our departed loved ones again. It is a tradition for all of us Chinese to take a day off and head to our ancestral graves. There the whole family will be helping our departed ones to clean their home
grave such as weeding, painting the inscription and dusting their tombstone. Then we will serve food and drinks for them. Some of us will even whipped out firecrackers. :)
After our beloved ones have feasted on their meals, we will be sending them the stuffs that they need or want. Our family have just sent my mommy an iPhone 4 and iPad 2. Pretty cool right? Whatever you can think of, someone will be able to replicate it for you to send to your ancestors in the other world. I must salute these people in this lucrative industry. They can really conjure anything our from paper huh. Ha :D
So what can our loved ones from the other side of the world expect from us? Usually we will be sending them bungalow, car, TV, clothes, cosmetic products, hand phone...just to name a few. Now how are we going to "courier" all those fancy gadgets to our beloved ones in the after world? Easy...we burn them...and voila they will be delivered instantaneously to them. Wanna what you can really buy for your beloved departed ones?
Pretty awesome if you ask me. These are just a handful of items that I managed to capture using my mobile phone. For those who observe Qing Ming with your family I am sure you have seen them right? But for those who don't you must be surprised to see some of the things that you can deliver to your loved ones at the other side of the world. So what do you think about these paper-ific crafts made for the dead ones during Qing Ming?
