My Personal Chinese Child-ghost Wedding Story


Have you guys ever heard of a Chinese Child-ghost wedding? According to long time straits time news reporter Sit yin Fong's Tales of Chinatown of the Malayan Federation of the 1950's, this phenomena occurred when some family members in Singapore and Malaysia received a dream visitation from the nether world that their deceased child had found their spouse with the deceased child from another family in the yin world and sought their earthly parental consent to be wedded. So the prospective families would seek out a shi kong or a local Daoist priest to perform the appropriate rituals at the cemetery of the deceased in Toa Payoh's Whitely road cemetery to marry the deceased children. It then followed by the usual Chinese wedding ceremony and exchange of gifts to accept each other as relatives due their connection the newlyweds in the nether world.

Such an incident happened during the second post world wars. Grandma Wong who was a member of the world of the Red switiska society in Singapore's Keng Lee road had a dream that her deceased daughter visited her in a dream informing her mother in torrential tears aloud she desired to marry a boy whom she found in the nether world. GrandmsaWong then enquired as to which fellow member of the society had a boy who recently demised. She located Grandma Choong and they arranged the nether nuptial. The entire ghost wedding as mentioned was performed.

As both families had become related, Grandma Wong further made grandma Choong promise her that since their Children had become parents, her first born grandson was then to be adopted in her family as her god-grandson in full acknowledgement of their wedded children in the nether regions as his real spiritual parents. So when grandma Choong's first and sole grandson born, the babe was dedicated to their married children-parent in the nether regions following the appropriate ancestral worship rites and I was that babe!

You sure it's not Taoist instead of Daoist. Because there is a difference between the 2.

Girlie and Jjf

I answer your question by stating that due to my supposing connection with my ghost parents in the nether regions, Iam therefore not a normal human being like everyone else and always felt there was always something very unusual about myself.
I categroy belong to a community known as other-kin which consist of people who do not believe themselves to be normal human-beings like everyone else due to some strange and unsual spirtual connections they have. This makes me feel like Iam some kind of alien from outer space that you see in the X-files films. I am perpetuall being misudertood by people all the time due to my hyper senstiveity physique being naturally tune to spiritual, metaphysical, strange and mysteries things. My real and very personal metaphysical life transforming experices are so radical and my personal strange amd mysteries encounters occruing so inexhautively that I canwrite a book entirely about them them and it has taken me 13 years of spiritual soul search to be where I am now at with the sorts of church groups and assocaites that I feel really comfortable with ranging from charasmatic excorcism, theosophy and all sorts of Asain religious metaphysical philsophies

grandy, i'm sorry but I still didn't understand it even reading your link. I just don't think this an actual ghost experenice. It's a cool short story, but not really a ghost story.

If I understand this correctly...

Grandma Choong had more than one Son (or maybe she had a Daughter) and when the still living Son (or Daughter) had a child (a son) Grandma Wong became that child's god-parent. This was done to honor the 'Spiritual Marriage' that had united the two Families...

I'm not sure about this one, needs more research into Chinese Customs concerning the Afterlife.

I'm confused. You were adopted from whom? Who are your real parents? I am sure ghosts can't give birth to a human soul. I read your story 5 times but still couldn't make out.

Here's a link that explains this scenario and custom:

Touching as it is, I don't think this is a paranormal encounter at all... Except maybe for your grandmother...

Could not understand that story. I understand that you are the child of two ghosts married in the nether world?

okay, never heard of it. I think it's sweet as it is werid. The only question I have is: is there something that has happened to you as a result of this? Like seeing the children/parent ghosts? If there is do tell.
