Please advise me, what should I do, how should I treat others who are different from me?

Please advise me, what should I do, how should I treat others who are different from me?

Many of my friends thought I am crazy and wrong but I cannot understand other way.

99% of my friends, teachers, lecturers, patients, students are non-Muslims; I would not be able to hate them even if I tried my best because I love them from my bottom of my heart. Not only I love them but missed them.

I cannot hate all Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Hindus, traditional nat believers, Communists, Free thinkers or non-believers.

My pic and short status message at 2nd. Std. in Kingswood School Kalaw, 53 years ago

2nd. Std. in Kingswood School Kalaw, SSS, Burma. That was in about 1959-60.

TQ Ko Shan Lay for sending this rare pic. I got my Std 3 and Std 4 books…If possible please photocopy that whole book and send to me please…I would send the cost to you.


I wish to send my heartfelt thanks and regards to Ko Harry Min and Daw Win Kyi @ Dr Seinn2 Min

Thanks a lot,  Ko Harry Min and his parent, my childhood friend Daw Win Kyi @ Dr Seinn2 Min.

You all have given me the best presents of my life, copies of our school magazines which are more than 52 years old. I could not describe how much I am happy and thankful to Ko Harry Min (Singapore) and his parents in Pyinmana, Myanmar.

In these 2 edition of Kingswood Star and magazines I got the pictures of my friends, teachers, head masters, school buildings, pictures of my two brothers and my oldest essay about my class printed in the magazine when I was at the fourth standard.

After 5th Standard examination, I left Kingswood High School Kalaw and never met or heard any news about my childhood friends. I wrongly thought that I am the only person who missed my childhood friends and old school. But my friends proved that I am wrong. They have not only kept these memoirs in good shape for more than 50 yrs but still care to send the copies to me, the old friend.

I wish to send my heartfelt thanks and regards to all of you.

This was OUR time in Kalaw Southern Shan State of Burma during late 50’s and early 60’s. There was no TV, Video, Recorder, CD, VCD, Internet, Mobile phone, very rare almost luxurious fixed telephone lines…this View-Master my father bought for us was a wonder for us.View-Master is the trademark name of a line of special-format stereoscopes and corresponding View-Master “reels”, which are thin cardboard disks containing seven stereoscopic 3-D pairs of small color photographs on film.
Apart from movies at cinemas where we went and see once in few months, we sit around the fireplace (quite cold so we need to have a fire place for about 9 months per year).
We have to wait and listen the BBS radio broadcasts of Sein Aung Min, Shwe Man Tin Maung and modern plays.

I love Shan State where I was registered in my National ID Card

March 16, 2012

I studied up to 5th. Std. at Kingswood High School, Kalaw. My National Registration No is ABN 048293 (ABN=Aung Ban, a town about 7 miles fro Kalaw. But now Aung Ban is under the Kalaw township. Taunggyi is at futher up. In this clip there are shots of Mandalay and Goke Hteit also. When we went to stay in Thibaw for about a month during our summer holiday, we took the train. I went together with my late grandma and stayed at late U Aung Tun, Senior Railway-line Engineer (Lan Bo Gyi), my father’s younger brother.

Inle Khaungtaing Luyechun Camp sold off with 7250 million Kyats

May 4, 2011

TQ Luyechun Dr Myo Kyi Tha for this information.

What to do, our Inle Luyechun Camp is already in the history. My old school, Kingswood High School was transformed into Kalaw GTI after Nationalization and later take over by Military Commaders’ College. I am afraid I would not even in the history after I die.
