Greetings Travellers!! Have you ever had the urge to fake your own funeral in order to improve the quality of your life? Well some people consider it a good idea to do so. According to reports from China Daily a 22 year old Chinese woman by the name of Zeng Jia staged her own funeral at Wuhan, central China's Hubei province on March 30 as a theatrical act of soul searching.


Her stunt was more of an inspirational stunt than anything. She faked her own funeral in order to gain a fresh perspective of life and to relay a message to the masses.

"I feel so good after coming out of the coffin," Zeng told China Daily.

The inspiration for the fictional funeral came from an epiphany she had about burial ceremonies after her grandfather's recent death.

"It struck me that people spend all that time and effort on someone when they are gone and they cannot appreciate it," she said.



According to the Daily Express, she hired a team of cosmetic artists to make her look dead, yet alive. Zeng laid in the coffin for an hour while mourners walked past paying their tributes, and no, they weren't rented.

Whether or not mourners were aware it was a pseudo-funeral, it was clear by the end of the wake when she jumped out of the coffin and delivered a speech.

No matter if what she did made sense or not it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
