What's that San? What's with pipes and cymbals?
What's with the chanting and singing?
Last night the kitties were all up even after 8 as there was a Chinese funeral across our flat, at the void deck. Sudden bursts of pipes and clashes of cymbals made the boys anxious. Bujang was on alert the whole time and Tanaka although more relaxed did not sleep. Only the girls were not bothered. Bossy Boots fell asleep almost immediately after I gave her the night snack in the study and Ms Akira was grooming as usual.
The pipes lasted until almost 10 pm though. It has been quite some time ago that I heard pipes and chanting. These days funerals are apt to be just a few people sitting at tables quietly and watching over the coffin of the deceased.
