  • At their heart, funerals are a way of celebrating life and ensuring safe passage of the dearly departed soul into the next journey. But, as a whole, funerals are tightly and elaborately interwoven with the rituals of a culture and community, and how it views death. โฃ
โฃ
The role of food during the time of death in a household is to remind us about life, and a way of mending and filling up the empty space the loss of a loved one has left behind. Food is an expression of our historical roots. And, more often than not, itโ€™s a way to feel connected to the ones we have lost. โฃ
โฃ
In Asian culture, rice is a mainstay in funeral cooking, as it symbolises life. In โ€˜Shraadhโ€™ - the Hindu ritual of feeding crows on the anniversary of a loved oneโ€™s death โ€“ rice, along with the deceasedโ€™s favourite foods, is set out. Itโ€™s said that crows are the link between the living and the dead and that ancestors visit in the form of crows. The โ€˜Shraadhโ€™ is deemed complete when the crow has partaken in the feast.โฃ
โฃ
Within Chinese culture, chicken is believed to help the deceasedโ€™s soul fly to heaven, while duck is said to protect the spirit when it crosses the three rivers along the path to afterlife. In Mongolian custom, mourners are offered a lump of sugar dipped in milk after the funeral โ€“ a ritual said to purify them after coming in contact with death.โฃ
โฃ
Of course, in the face of modernisation, much has changed, rituals have been cut down to its bare essentials. Today, it may just be a cup of warm tea, instead of an elaborate spread, in the quiet company of loved ones. But these moments are every bit as rich in symbolism, and an equally meaningful way of marking a loved oneโ€™s passing by. โฃ

  • After seeing @hungryinwpg review on @daguricenoodle, I knew I had to check them out!

Any new noodle joints, Iโ€™M ALWAYS IN!! ๐Ÿค‘ Iโ€™ve always been #TeamNoodles > #TeamRice ๐Ÿœ
.
.
I got the โ€œKimchi Flavoured Crossing the Bridge Rice Noodle Soupโ€ soup base with the addition of lamb slices and stuffed meat balls for an extra $3 each. I was worried for the numbing flavour but this one didnโ€™t make my tongue numb at all, thank goodness! ๐Ÿ˜ฐ Broth was light, flavourful with a nice kick ๐ŸŒถ Generous individual portions for a great price. Definitely well worth the buck, it comes with all those sides plus beef slices that you throw into the pot like you do with hot pot! For you noodle lovers, you can get an extra noodle refill for free too! ๐Ÿฅณ

You can find them on Pembina behind the 88 Mart๐Ÿฒ
