Last Day with Grandpa

We woke up early to be a Paz by 8am where there will be one last Christian service. Based on feng-shui, the coffin has to be wheeled out of Paz by 9am, and has to be buried by 11am. Don't ask me why. It doesn't make any sense to me.

It was a slow funeral convoy from Araneta Ave. all the way to Heritage Park in Taguig. We got there in about 1.5 hrs. We came down from the cars at the cemetery gate and walked from there with the horse carriage carrying the coffin to the burial plot. There was a short message from the pastor then grandpa was lowered down.

There were no major crying as what I originally expected (especially from Dad). I guess everyone was really expecting it given his old age and long bout with lung cancer. From Heritage, we proceeded to Hai Shin Lou in Arnaiz Ave. for the customary lunch for the guests. We filled up about 8 tables.
