Nyengai DA Margaret

More on the late Datin Amar Margaret

Tonite is the third night and the family of the late Datin Amar Margaret has made the final arrangements for burial tomorrow. So tonite would be considered nyegai in Iban - which is the final night before burial. Relatives, friends from all over converged at Datuk Amar Linggi's residence tonight to say that final farewell. More pictures to share as below:

Picture of the late Datin Amar Margaret in her younger days


Memories Album and pictures were placed on the table a the entrance


Wreaths from well wishers all over


Crowds that night comprise of people who came from different parts of Sarawak


Some of the relatives came from outside Sarawak


The scene from outside the master living room


The scene along the open hallway


Food for the guests that night was aplenty


And the drinks - Jonas seems to be having two here?


YBs forget their differences during this sad occassion. Its time to pay their last respect to the late Datin Amar Margaret who has done much for the community.

Will see if I can get more pictures during the Church Service and Burial later.

Thanks for sharing. I think the spelling should be nyenggai'.It comprises of 2 syllibles; 'nyeng' and 'gai'.The apostophe ' is to accentuate the silent 'k'.
