    Death in Thailand

    Updating our wills whilst I can. I asked Dao does she want to be cremated or buried and where?

    Though it was a simple question.

    I am confused as I though cremation was the go for the majority of Thai people.

    She tells me it depends on how you die and where.

    Old age can Burn

    Car accidence under the ground.

    Some one kill me under the ground.

    Die from disease burn.

    Morbid issue but do you get the same if an answer at all?

    I broached this subject with Jo whilst living in Isaan.

    The farm being adjacent national park, many would not dare venture into the bush after dark, some never.
    Upon asking why I was told that many people who had died violently, eg: murdered or by car accident, had to buried under ground... for a certain period of time. The NP was an ideal location for this.

    Only those who died of natural causes could be cremated, almost immediately, at the local Wat.

    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    I think you mean 'discretion'. I get a similar silent response from Jo on sensitive subjects although she does now confide most family secrets.

    555 ... not yet.
    After 18 months married I now truly feel 'accepted' with pillow-talk updates on family fame, fortune, and love affairs ... much of which is in the negative at present. Jo is quick to admit being happy 'away from Bangkok' and thus NOT an easy touch for financial assistance.

    I meant my TG family secrets. As we all have. Wonderment as it unfolds bit by bit even after living in close quarters. Not too many family secrets now.

    Yep, have tried and failed several times in the past to have this conversation and sort of gave up .... caused too much distress, tears and bad dreams for someone ... it is not possible to discuss these events for to do so invites them to occur ...

    Just go first then it's not your problem ... Enjoy
    Life is the unexpected ...

    Another South difference I guess....
    I just asked mine and she said that everyone in her villiage had fire.
    "If put in ground , where can do for people not have land? Cannot in tempen any more. I never hear in my country anything about land. All make fire."
    Then thinking, "Ahh , ok ok , baby born and die already , some people put baby die in garden ..."
    Silence.

    "So what do you want done to you Nueng?"
    "Huh? Nothing , I busy make lawn-der-ree."
    555
    "No , not now , I mean if a car runs you over and kills you tomorrow."
    "Gee, can you talk nice?"
    "Nah , I meant , do you want I send your body to the baan and they make fire for you if you die here or Australia ?"

    "Hmm, yess. I think so." 555

    "Well thats what I want Nueng. Just a few days wait if any of the kids want to come then fire me up here in Kamala."
    "You tell me before. Dont worry , I make good fire for you Khun Dee.... but now I do lawn-der-ree."
    "Thanks darlin'."

    I've always wanted my organs used for anyone that might need them... and the rest of my body I am happy to be used in any medical experiments deemed fit. My only request is that I am dead.
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    A burner or a buryer I really couldn't care less after I'm dead.
    I like monty python "Funerals at prestatyn" also good for a laugh is "Death at a funeral" (UK version).
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    None of my organs are going to befit anyone 5555
    I have signed donation card in my wallet, and have registered, but in the end your family can over ride it.

    My will says I am to be given a paupers cremation, that is by the council in a cardboard coffin.
    Then my family and friends can take my ash's by boat off Greenmount Point, just beyond the break line and scatter me there. Where I loved to surf.

    Fcuk being cremated or buried with gold handles, it's a massive scam.

    I always wanted to have my body frozen and thawed out when technology advanced enough to jump start me back up again....

    If not, I like JC's approach. Why financially burden the ones you love when in the end, its dust to dust?
