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.
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
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


This video is unplanned, I only recorded by my phone. I hope that the quality is still okay for you to enjoy, like, and comment to this video.
