Now, the scatter ashes into the sea - need permit from the Sg authority, which it is?

the casket company would ask when he made arrangement with the crematorium.

Next question: is this a usual practice: no one visits the great-grandparents during QingMing after the grandparents pass away?

That is because you are married off?

Are you expected to visit your hubby's side grandparents when they pass away?

When the other party goes as well, children to scatter both our ashes. Cannot expect kids to place us in their home as their spouses may not accept it. No point putting in columbarium, troublesome for kids to maintain and burden is on them to make time to visit.

I guess I have to get used to the idea of having DH's ashes at home until I die. It doesn't help when he said he'll visit me to tickle me :cry:


:lol: I think I would like 'see' my loved one if can..but on condition not in scary form la.

my mil's ashes was placed in the same location as dh's grandparents.
so each year, "visiting" my mil then "visit" his grandparents.

for my side, my father doesnt visit his parents', my mother too for her father. so i conveniently skip it.

Now I start to think what will happen for myself. My hubby is a catholic and I am not. His will be in a church. But I dunno what will happen to me...


pardon me for being kapo: why the ashes and tablet not in the same temple?


Think the tablet place at bright hill temple is very expensive and is only for 30 or 60 years (leasehold), not freehold. So my father said freehold at river valley temple temple better. He was very into property... haha

Thank you for sharing.

When I married into the family, MIL told me I am not supposed to visit my side during QingMing because based on superstitious beliefs, the man's side fortune would be transferred to the wife's side if the wife does so.
