Buddhist Funeral Service

Was waiting at Nirvana Memorial Center, Sg Besi from 1 am for the remains of the late Mr. Khoo to arrive from Sabah via MAS airlines.

Mr. Khoo was in Sabah scaling Mount Kinabalu with a group of good friends.  They managed to reach the peak and spent some time taking precious photos at the summit.  While descending, Mr. Khoo had a falling accident whilst he was also believed to be suffering from altitude sickness.  The combo of the above unfortunate events has taken a serious toll on his physical condition and he passed away while descending Mount Kinabalu. His friends and the porters helped search for rescue to transfer his remains down to the foothill.  They have contacted his wife Cynthia to inform her of the tragic incident and eventually, Cynthia phoned me for advice for the arrangements to repatriate her late husband back to Kuala Lumpur for the funeral and burial.  

I immediately contacted Nirvana Sabah Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Au Kok Wah to help out and everything went on smoothly there after, including making police report, post-mortem procedure, repatriation documentation and not forgetting, engaging a Sifu to pray at the Foothill for his soul to return to KL, this is part of the normal practice for Chinese who have passed on away from home. 

With all legal documentations completed, the late Mr Khoo's remains was flown back to Kuala Lumpur a day later; With the airway bill (AWB) confirming Nirvana as the designated consignee to claim his remains from MAS cargo in KLIA.

Due to unforeseen flight delay, we finally received his remains in KLIA a couple of hours later than scheduled, which was close to 3 am.  The family was eager to see him and waiting to offer chanting at the mortuary.  Our Senior Service Consultant/ Sales Manager, Mr. Steven Tai was on hand to see to all the preparation work, rendering whichever possible ways to lighten the pain that this grief-stricken family has to go thru.

We left the center near dawn, the time was almost 6 am and we were scheduled to return to the center again at noon to see to the parlor set up for the wake service, organizing an obituary to appear in the local newspaper the following day as well as taking the immediate family to Nirvana Semenyih to chose a burial plot. Much more work to follow thru but I was not even feeling the tiredness as I see the family's agony from the beginning until much at ease now, it was all fulfilling.

Mr. Khoo was laid to rest in peace at Zone SM, Nirvana Semenyih Memorial Park.

Double-Spring and Leap Month - June 2017 (Lunar Calendar) 六月 双春閏月 - 种生基

Seize the golden opportunity of "Double-Spring and Leap Month" to usher in prosperity and longevity with Feng Shui inspired eternal abode




On the Chinese Calendar, when there are two different days marking the start of spring with the presence of a leap month in the year, this phenomenon is called the "Double-Spring and Leap Month".  Since ancient times, 'spring' has been hailed as the 'first and foremost' season of the year.  It is a season brimming with hopes.  And for the leap month, the Chinese word of 'Leap' rhymes with another word of similar pronunciation bearing the meaning of 'bumper harvest'.  Therefore, "Double-Spring and Leap Month' connotes a year full of prosperity!  The forthcoming year of 2017 presents not only a 'Double-S[romg', but also a 'Leap Month' for the sixth month of the Chinese calendar.  This signifies a double 'six' that ushers in auspiciousness and an opportune time to procure an eternal abode or 'Sheng Ji' for either your parents, spouse or yourself.  From Feng Shui's perspective, the year of 'Double-Spring and Leap Month' fosters prosperity, longevity, and wealth.

The benefits of Sheng Ji installation:

> To promote longevity
A good health, including spiritual health, which results in longevity

> To trigger energy
 strong body with a healthy mental stamina to foster positive energies

> To change the course of your destiny
A remedy for the imperfect Bazi through Fengshui harmonization in the later stage

> To spur career promotion
The gracing of good luck for career advancement and timely guidance from a godsend

> To wish for newborn and wealth

The arrival of a newborn and improvement on career and wealth

> To enhance karmic rewards

On matters relating to favorable circumstances, including personal relationship and marriage

> To earn merit through benevolence
Embrace virtuous good deeds to make you a noble person that ushers in prosperity

A Father's Grief

Of my 10 years with Nirvana, this was the time where I personally experienced the feeling of pain and sorrow filling the air during the time I was showing the aged father, Mr. Song senior and his daughter-in-law for an urn compartment designated for his son, Wilson,  who was suffering from ALS  sickness.

This was also the time, the indescribable feeling of despair on Mr. Song's face having to arrange a funeral for his own child. The torment sitting thru listening to the detailed order of events. I can absolutely feel for him.   

With the high spirit of Wilson, we had a Facetime session and exchanging messages over WhatsApp to conclude the identification of the lot, chosen by Wilson himself. Although he was suffering from this disease which has caused him to be immobile and unable to speak and swallow.   

Five months later, Wilson bid farewell to this world. Left behind 3 school going girls and a teacher wife, with aged parents who have moved from Sibu to join him in recent years.  

A solemn funeral took place at Nirvana Memorial Center, Sg. Besi, Kuala Lumpur.  Many of his comrades who are suffering from the same disease came to pay respect to Wilson.  They were also the pillar of strength to Wilson.

After the funeral, I have continued sending greetings and gesture messages to Mr. Song senior, keeping him accompanied spiritually during this difficult time while he embarks on the road to emotional healing.

Buddhist Funeral Service


Received Lily's phone call almost 3am in the middle of the night.  "Can you help me arrange my father's funeral? He has just passed on some 10 minutes ago at the hospital."

I jumped into action straight away as I was informed a few weeks back that her father was not in a very promising condition and that I should be on standby.

As I arrived at the hospital ICU some 30 minutes later, there was Lily and her grieving mum together with other tearful siblings keeping each other supported emotionally. While waiting for the hospital personnel to get ready for the transport of remains to the mortuary, I gave a brief explanation on the funeral process and items required to be ready for the en-coffin needs.  The family then had a clear understanding on the sequence of event leading from the prayer rites right up to the cremation, which would take place three days later.  A phone message was drafted immediately with details to be conveyed to relatives and friends informing them the venue of the wake and time for the funeral procession. This was an efficient way for the family so that they can mourn wholeheartedly without having to worry about verbal communication errors.

The family was very appreciative with the overall coordination of the funeral, with total preemptive planning and preparations that ease them of with last minute decision making and incurring unnecessary spending. 

Lily was my long supportive client dating back to year 2009, who has been introducing friends and relatives to me.  And I regard this as the time for me to redeem the trust and support that I have been entrusted all these years, and that my promises to make sure a smooth and dignified funeral for her beloved father shall never fail.

Forbes lists Malaysia David Kong as among world's most influential business leaders

By NST Business - May 17, 2017 @ 1:13pm





KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian David Kong, founder of Southeast Asia's largest full-service funeral company, Nirvana Asia, has been ranked as among the most influential business leaders in the world.

In Forbes’ second annual Global Game Changers list, Kong was listed with 24 other trailblazers such as Slack creator Stewart Butterfield, Alibaba logistics maestro Judy Tong and renowned inventor James Dyson. 

The list of the most influential business leaders from around the world is based on the level of corporate growth, innovation and international presence.

 “These global game changers are impacting industries and lives around the world. In order to be considered for the Forbes Global Game Changers list, leaders must be running a for-profit operation with a market value of at least US$1 billion that is growing and innovating better than its peers,” Forbes said in a statement today. 

"These are true movers and shakers who are reshaping their industries and forever changing the way we work, travel, communicate and invest," said Forbes staff writer Lauren Gensler, who edited the Forbes Global Game Changers list.

“We set out to find the most intrepid, innovative people in the business world who are thinking big and moving the needle,” she added.

The list also features Scott Farquhar and Mike Cannon-Brookes, the Australian billionaires behind enterprise software giant Atlassian. With a blockbuster IPO in 2015 and annual revenues approaching US$600 million, Atlassian is one of the most successful technology startups in Australian history. 

NASA, Snapchat, Twilio and Spotify are among the world’s most prominent innovators that use Atlassian’s products.

Buddhist Funeral Service

Mr Poh's father passed away peacefully at home at a condominium in Petaling Jaya.  We assisted Mr Poh's family in reporting the death at a nearby Police Station and followed by sending the remains to Nirvana Memorial Center for the en-coffin preparation.

Mr Poh has given me the instruction to conduct the funeral arrangement in the best possible way for his beloved dad.  

During the two days wake services at Nirvana Memorial Center, we have helped in arranging the obituary in the local dailies, for both the Chinese and English newspapers.  In addition, food and refreshments were also provided for both family members and attendees thru-out the duration of the wake service, thank you gifts were also arranged for relatives and friends who came for the send-off on departure day. The Nirvana service team also coordinated the ancestral tablet installation at Chempaka Buddhist Lodge, Petaling Jaya after the funeral ceremony.

The flow of the funeral arrangements were conducted smoothly and peacefully, which gave much comfort to Mr Poh's mum, who was in grief of her husband's demise.

Mr Poh and his family gave us an "Ang Pow" of appreciation, including to the Emcee who delivered the eulogies and tributes on behalf of the family.

We pray that the late Mr Poh senior to rest in peace.
