A student has hosted her own funeral – because she felt experiencing “death” would make her appreciate life more keenly.
Zeng Jia paid for a full-blown service, complete with mourners, flowers and photographers.
The 22-year-old even hired a team of cosmetic artists to make her “body” look more convincing.
Zeng lay in state for an hour – with a Hello Kitty doll on her chest and origami doves hanging above her coffin – before getting up to join in her own wake.
"It struck me that people spend all that time and effort on someone when they are gone and they cannot appreciate it," explained Zeng, from Wuhan, Hubei province.
