A visit to Grand Papa’s Tad

My two aunts in Vientiane wanted to visit Grand Papa’s Tad during the Lao New Year to pay respect. This is the time when relatives of the deceased would make a visit to clean and paint the Tad and have a Buddhist ceremony done.

  1. I remember I visited my Grandfather’s thad. My aunt said to me “okay, nok, say something.” I was like “uhhh.. like what?”. I really did not know what to say…

  2. Hi Nokkie,

    I wouldn’t know what to say either if I go visit my Grand-Papa’s tad next year. I will have to think of something nice and proper to say before I go to Laos.
