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!
