Funeral, Burning

After finishing the ceremony inside the building, we took all paper-made house, car, utilities, gold, banknotes, etc. to the centre of a field. Then we began burning them all.

This meant for sending these things to the dead, so that she had all comforts and necessary things.

It is called ‘Kong-Tek’ in Thai.

Apart from this, every year, we will also come back to the tomb of the dead’s and pay respect to her, and again burn some of these things for her.

P. S. In the third pic, the man in the middle is my beloved younger uncle. He is sooo nice!
