Weekend SnapShot

It's Teacher's Day - 1st Sept.
Gifts from my students.
Here's also wishing all teachers a Happy Teacher's Day!!!
Note: I'm not an academic teacher.I'm a swim coach/instructor.
After finishing on my money origami last week. Came the day of my grandmother's death anniversary. On this day, we offered her favourite dishes at the alter, bought paper jewellery,clothes,her favourite game set-mahjong, handbags and some cosmetics.
After prayers, we carried on to burn all those offerings to her.

That's a very interesting tradition. I think it's remarkable how you honor people you love who have already passed away.
