Funeral Dressing

Mourning Clothes

Bereaved family members will wear a white t-shirt (symbolises death) and black pants during wakes and funeral day. We provide white shirt and black pants for the bereaved family upon request.

Traditional funeral will require the descendants to put on an extra layer of thin sackcloth known as the “Ma Yi”. It is worn to symbolise filial piety where the family has sold everything to prepare for this grand funeral.
