I am a virtual slave!

February 4, 2013


I NEVER use CREDIT cards.

But my housing loan (Mortgages), car-loans (called Hire-Purchases) and Children’s Education loans shackled me into virtual slavery.

This is a truly BEAUTIFUL piece. Please read this at a slow pace, digesting every word and in leisure…. Do not hurry…..this is a treasure… For those lucky to still be blessed with your Mom, this is beautiful. For those of us who aren’t, this is even more beautiful. For those who are moms, you’ll love this.

The young mother set her foot on the path of life.

‘Is this the long way?’ she asked.

And the guide said: ‘Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it.. But the end will be better than the beginning.’

But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years.

So she played with her children, and gathered flowers for them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, ‘Nothing will ever be lovelier than this.’

What actually is ‘father’? Solely the husband of mother?
Or an expected breadwinner, acting also as grand overseer;
Of family so tender, with issues small and greater;
Always attempting to gather, enough funds for breather?

Source_Star: Parents are forever. A DIFFERENT SPIN By JO-JO STRUYS

Not directly related to our family nor any serious problem with us. Just the Natural relations written in lovely way. I had seen an old lady worried too much and complaining noisily at Jusco Information about her lost boy seperated while shopping. At last, we all have to smile when her young boy came to the countre. He is already 60 yr old but for the mother he is still a boy!

No matter how old you are, they will never stop fussing over you.

I WAS speaking to a mother who said her toddler used to grip on to her leg when she was trying to leave the house. Going to work was emotionally challenging because she really wanted to be with her son. She did not want to miss out on those growing-up years but the couple had no choice.

They were both working hard to save up money for their child’s education.

Her son is now 15 and she hardly sees him. He uses the house like a hotel, eats the dinners she cooks every night and disappears into his room, far more interested in his computer games than speaking to his mother.


Fermented or Pickled Tea Leaf Salad

  1. Lahpet. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  2. Phet Thote (Fermented Tea Salad) Recipe

Lahpet, also spelt laphet, is Burmese for fermented or pickled tea. Burma is one of very few countries where tea is eaten as well as drunk. Its pickled tea is unique in the region, and is not only regarded as the national delicacy but plays a significant role in Burmese society.[1] Its place in the cuisine of Myanmar is reflected by the following popular expression:

“Of all the fruit, the mango’s the best; Of all the meat, pork’s the best; Of all the leaves, lahpet’s the best”.
Politics Lahpet was an ancient symbolic peace offering between warring kingdoms in the history of Myanmar, and is exchanged and consumed after settling a dispute.


Minor Milestones of Daryn Mishka from 115-125 days

October 4, 2010

At about 115 days Thida started trying to give very soft solid food, scraped avocado pear or alligator pear and smashed soft rice. She likes a lot, and show her anger if Thida and Ma Khin are slow to feed her.

When her mother came back from duty at HKL, the first thing she do was smile and move her lips against each other as if girls do to even the newly applied lipsticks. I immediately understand that because I showed her and teased her when her grandma was feeding her. She was actually telling her mother about her first experience of eating solid foods.


Eidi or Duit Raya or gift of some money to children during Eid or Hari Raya

September 22, 2009

raya_elderWhen I was very young, in the primary school in Kalaw, we did not have any relatives there. But there were a lot of Muslims even in our road, so we went to all the Muslim houses in our road to get Eidi. Most of them give fifty cents coins or one Kyat. Few of them just give sweets and some invited us to eat food, usually Samai or Sawai. I hate  Samai or Sawai since that time because even few cents of money was better for us. I used to like Samai or Sawai when I grew up. Later when we shifted to Mandalay, we have a lot of relatives and could even get more than 100.00 Kyats. (At that time that was even dozens of times more valuable than the present Ringgit Malaysia. But I never spent even one cent from that money but given to my mother for the save keeping which I never asked back. My younger brother would resist my mother to give to her for safe keeping of that Eidi. When I look back the past, I feel sad that I feel bad (maybe I am wrong) although I tried to win the love of my parents, I failed. Both of them love my younger brothers more than me.
