Nirvana Funeral Service Pre-Planning

Mr Tan called me on my mobile one late afternoon as I was almost reaching home.  He asked if I could meet him at Nirvana Shah Alam on short notice to discuss about the packages that are currently available. Sensing some anxiety from the tone of his voice, I made a U-turn immediately and headed over to Ming Palace III at Nirvana Shah Alam, where we've agreed to meet.

Upon meeting up, I realised that Mr Tan had actually spent sometime earlier checking out the entire place himself and was looking for someone who can provide with him with a comprehensive proposal to meet his pre-planning needs. He was making arrangements for his mother-in-law who was then ill and in critical condition at a hospital nearby.  At the same time, Mr Tan was also pre-planning for his own family.

After a round of detailed discussion, I noted that Mr Tan's overall pre-planning needs are in fact for four related families altogether.  Immediately thereafter, I headed back to prepare a comprehensive proposal which needs to be completed overnight so that he could discuss the same with the rest of the family members first thing in the morning.  Looking at it, they were advised by the doctor that some kind of "preparation" has got to be done on an urgent basis for Mr Tan's mother-in-law.

On the next day, I was called to meet with senior members of the families and after clarifying on some queries raised, the families then decided immediately to purchase the funeral service package, urn compartments and also ancestral tablets, as proposed.  I then proceeded with all the paperwork to formalise the purchase. For this pre-planning purchase of our bereavement products, Mr Tan is not only enjoying a substantial discount of packages, i.e 30% discount on Funeral Service Package, Cash discount on Ancestral Tablet, he and his family members also given complimentary gifts i.e. Air Asia Travel Wish Vouchers plus Full body Medical Check up Voucher that came along with the purchase of the various products.  At the time of writing this posting, all these complimentary gifts have since discontinued.

Coincidentally,  upon submission of all signed documents at the Sales Office, a distress call came thru with a misery bad news that Mr Tan's mother-in-law had just passed on.  Honestly, I am not an advocate of superstition believes but in this case, I am absolutely astounded by its perfect timing, there is nothing else to best describe this classic meaning of "Pre-Planning", right on the dot, spot on.

The subsequent wake and funeral service was conducted very smoothly as planned and the family members were all impressed with Nirvana's excellent service delivery.

Total Peace Of Mind (TPOM) - Nirvana

I attended one of our TPOM dinners two nights ago which was hosted by our group's Chief Business Development Director, Mr Koh Chor Kian. 

I am not surprised if you have attended one of these TPOM dinners which are being held with the primary objectives of creating awareness on the importance of Pre-Planning Needs and to present Nirvana's products, albeit in a lighter and humorous way.  The talk of the night can't really deviate far from the topics of life and death.  Compared to some 2 decades ago when Nirvana was just established, there are far more people nowadays who are open minded about the topic and are accepting Funeral Pre-Planning.  However, we still see a minority of the attending guests who still find this topic a taboo.

TPOM has been in the market for some good 25 years now and I am quite sure 80% of the Kuala Lumpur Chinese senior folks (I am being a little conservative, :)) have heard about it, and most understand that it brings out the awareness and importance of Pre-Planning Needs. 

Our Speaker of the night was Mr Desmond Lee, who is known to be very humorous and sings very well during the show, we heard contagious laughters and also paused to reflect after some nerves were touched.  Desmond was flamboyant and good at mastering the overall ambiance. He champions Nirvana's continual pursuit in emphasizing the importance of planning ahead, so to achieve the goal of  TOTAL PEACE OF MIND (TPOM) to every household.

TPOM - Total Peace Of Mind
Why plan ahead?
1. You want to ease the burden on your family
2. You want to assume the financial responsibility for your own funeral
3. You want your family to have the benefit of a meaningful funeral
4. You want your final wishes to be followed
5. You want to be self-reliant and have your funeral service to be in order at the end of your life

At Nirvana, We Serve from the Heart.

Speaker - Mr Desmond Lee

Emcee of the night - Mr Kwan

Nirvana Shah Alam Christian Columbarium - Perpetual Garden. 2015 All Saints Day Prayers

Remembering departed loved ones on All Saints Day

Rev Fr Simon Labrooy came to offer blessings and saw many faithful families joint the prayers while the weather took a turn and was raining heavily outside the columbarium. Despite the rain, Rev Fr Simon Labrooy was assisted by his assistant, some volunteers and staff of Nirvana, went round the entire columbarium and  offer prayers to the departed.

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
