Sembahyang Kubur (Ceng Beng) Singkawang 27 Agustus 2017

by - August 27, 2017



Hello, I am going to share my video about the tradition of Chinese people in Singkawang. This video is made for the tribute to my Grandfather who passed away 12 years ago. And I wrote him a poem below here :

It's so hard to go back to a place that's filled with heart breaking memories and people you never wanted to let go of
They say there is always a reason
They say that time will always heal
It’s been 12 years since you’re gone
Twelve years
I still remember when I was a kid, I visited your home
I think I didn’t really talk to you, right?
No, it’s not because I don’t want to
But.. you only speak Chinese
And I...
Can’t speak Chinese.
Siliy.
But I still remember sentence that I always said before going back
Kung kung, ngai con lu
It means, Grandpa, I am going
A short farewell before we meet again in the next year, during the Chinese new year, on February
That was my favorite moment when I was a kid
Besides the pocket money, chocolate, and cookies, it’s you. I am happy to see you
BUT
The moment came
I always say bye before I am going back
But why you are not doing the same?
I didn't get to say goodbye
I never said those final words
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, But love leaves a memory no one can steal

You may be out of my sight, but never out of our mind
Here’s my little silly thought
You always gave me a little money before I go home, it was about 10.000 or 20.000 rupiah
I know it was not much, but I know it’s all you have.
I think, It would be nice If you are still here now
Seeing your grandchildren reaching their dreams.
I never have a chance to give what you gave to me before

So this is my little tribute true and tender, just to show that the memories of you will always stay
