guess i have mentioned to you before: have taken annual leave next Wed till Sat, have to deal with the ashes of my dad, so may be i won't be here during this period  :innocent:

What do you do with the ashes?  Some have done unusual things, put them in weird places or just keep them on a shelf somewhere.

at first we were applying for government's owned "temples?" which are cheaper, but since we failed after 2 draws, i think it would be better to settle him in a private one (but a lot more expensive).  They are mostly either run by the "buddist" or "Christian" persons.  They are just being kept in a bottle and then being placed inside a box like stuff on the wall.  However, even for this small space, it costs a lot.  Chinese people don't like to put the ashes at home, for fear of getting bad lucks.

we can throw the ashes into the sea or have it kept under a tree in a government owned garden, but as my dad was so chicken hearted , i don't think he loves being in a sea, better keep him in land  ://

Some just spread the ashes where the person felt comfortable and it doesn't cost anything.
 
I just want to get buried, but more than six feet down, maybe ten or twelve feet should be OK.

He doesn't do it to insult, he just doesn't give a crap at times.

hello Dr Swish  :))

I think Roger played well in the final, just lost marginally  :king:

I am eating eggs+pig legs in ginger as breakfast for 3 days, one of my colleagues gave birth to a baby girl. This is our tradition to eat this as  a supplement of calcium to the mother.  I don't have to buy breakfast for the whole week. :gleam:

so, your roger only needs to win one match in Paris in order to qualify for the end year championship?  If so, he is sure to get in  :innocent:

He should make it.  Maybe Nadal and Jerzy will meet soon: http://www.coretennis.net/majic/pageServer/0v0100000e/en/tid/33683/Tournament-Table.html
