As I was sicked, on 25 August 2012, I could not join my family members for the Ulambana prayer for my late father, where his ashes is placed at the Kwong Tung Chinese Cemetery (Heritage Park)'s Pagoda. I have no regret but peace, to have spent 8 full months with my late father on father-son moments before his last breath....
Here is a photo of the exact type of tin mug that my late father always like to use for his drinks, i.e. for his iced tea, iced orange juice, soft drinks, including hot beverages....you could always hear the stainless steel teaspoon cling-clang when he stirred his drinks / beverages in the tin mug....and you know, Daddy's home.....
A tin mug - in memory of my beloved late father....Namo Amitabha, Namo Amitabha, Namo Amitabha.
