Tracing Our Roots
Most ethnic Chinese are inseparable with the root culture of showing “filial piety”, which means a sense of duty and responsibility towards one’s parents. Come any big festival, most of us will try to be home for a reunion or just for that gathering of family members despite a busy workload.
Even without the excuse of a happy occasion like Cheng Meng or All Souls’ Day, the family will take time to honor the family’s deceased members and no expense is being spared for the ritual.
Our forefathers came to the then Malaya in search of a better living. Most came from southern China as many came from Fujian province. The Cantonese came from south Guangdong, Teochews from east Guangdong. Hakkas, Hainanese and many others joined the rat race and ventured here. As the country flourished so did the next and next generation. Culture, economy, education, politics became established but the new generation still follow many ritual traditions.
We are glad that our great grandfathers had the
foresight to settle here, a country teeming with
multi-cultural influences and the best of being able
to keep our culture alive.
