Veteran actress Ha Ping (originally named Lo Siu Ping) passed away on the 5th at age 81. Yesterday morning at 9 AM the funeral took place at the Universal Funeral Parlor. Friends Lau Kong, Cheung Kwok Keung, Anderson Junior (On Tak Juen) and godson Gordon Lam Ka Tung also came to send Ha Ping on her final journey. The ceremony was Buddhist. After the funeral was completed, Ha Ping's photo was carried by a male relative as the coffin was transported to the Tseung Kwan O cemetery for burial. Godson Lam Ka Tung looked saddened but not as emotional as two nights ago. He focused on arranging transport for family and friends and other chores.
The hearse arrived at the cemetery around 10 AM. At the start of the burial ceremony Ka Tung first threw out offerings for Godmother to be on her journey at peace. Family and friends then presented incense sticks one after another. After the ceremony, everyone leapt over the fire in a basin and cleansed themselves with pummelo leaves. Ka Tung declined to comment and left without speaking to the media.
