A standard wake service is 3 days 2 nights but may last longer depending on the family wishes. A wake service is where family and friends can pay their final respects to the deceased which takes place before the funeral service. An altar may be placed near the casket and feature an image of the deceased, an image of the Buddha, candles, flowers, fruit, and incense arrangement. There will also be a priest praying or monk chanting depending on their religion throughout the wake service. It is also the time, where family, relatives and friends give their condolences and pay tribute to the deceased family.

Ceremonial chanting may take place during the wake and will be performed by monks. Chanting in practical reasons is such as to aid in the contemplation of the impermanence of life, rather than for mere tradition.

Ceremonial parlour is a special place or room where the wake services are normally held. In the parlour, it is usually consist of table and chairs for family and friends to gather and pay their final respects or tribute to the deceased.

We provide many different types of funeral services packages that include all religion except Islam. What are our funeral packages? There is two type of package that is for the Buddhist and Christian.

Do not worry, we have a tranquility place of peaceful resting for the departed that keeps all the funeral urns and are able to host ceremonial parlours in the building itself.

Step 2

Land Burial Plots (single, double & family)

Also known as funeral niche. For example, it is like buying a land for your final resting place. It can come in various sizes, single plot (6’ x 16’) is a burial plot for 1 person. As for double plot (12’ x 6’) is a burial plot for 2 people which is suitable for couples. Finally, we also customisable family plot (can be as big as 48’ x 70’) that can cater from 4 up to 32 pax.

When people buy land burial plots it does not come with the tombstone construction. When you have a land, you will need a house for your final resting place and the tombstone represents the house. However, purchasing and building it will cost separately. There are several designs and materials which one can choose, from marble to granite. Normally people would choose granite as it can last longer and it has lower maintenance such as cracks and fracture.

‘Sheng Ji’ in short for ‘Sheng Ji Feng Shui’ stands for “The Foundation of Life”. While people are still living, they build their tombstone in advance. ‘Sheng Ji’ is to reverse the misfortunes by turning it into a fortunate and prosperous fate by blending in the energy of 5 elements and characters that relates to the persons date of birth and geographical force according to their honorable deeds. Therefore, why building the ‘Sheng Ji Feng Shui’ (which in olden days is only permitted by the Emperors in the ancient Chinese Dynasty) is needed so that one can be blessed with abundant of blessings for good health and longevity, to bring luck and fortune to career and family and blessings of wealth and prosperity to the next generation.

We used to have ancestral tablets in our homes especially like our grandmother or grandfathers house, where you can find it on the altar table next to the Buddha statue. This tablet is a remembrance to our ancestors but now in modern homes, we do not have such altar tables to place those tablets. Therefore, in our columbarium, we have a place to keep and store all ancestral tablets. It is made from crystal and glazed glass material, graced with LED lightings. The LED lighting will make the tablets emit auspicious rays to manifest its ancestral nobility.
