I won't be able to update my blog for a while

Dear friends, I won't be able to update my blog for a while as I am now back in Myanmar and will be travelling to a remote area of Myanmar for a few months. There is no internet access overthere so I will be cut of from the rest of the world for a while. Anyway, there are many interesting things at the places I travel and I will also take lots of photos so I hope I will be able to post them here when I can use the internet again. I will update my blog, may be next two or three months. And will be able to tell you interesting stories about the culture, people, their life, places and many more.

If you are one of those who are thinking of coming to Myanmar, please don't hesitate. In a few months the rainy season will be over and many tourists will be coming to Myanmar. If you intend to come, book at least one month in advanced. The airline seats and hotel and guest-house rooms are fully booked at peak seasons in tourist areas, especially Bagan and Inlay, so you better be quick. And anyway, our country is a very beautiful and friendly country.

I got married

Me and my girlfriend, Au, now my wife, are married. We had our solemnization ceremony in Singapore, on 21 August 2005, at Crown Prince Hotel on Orchard Road, Singapore. We solemnized and sign in the presence of the Justice of Peace Mrs. Bertha Neo. My friend Thant Zin Myint and his sister Aye Thu Thu Aung acted as our witnesses. It was a very wonderful moment for both of us.

We invited about 30 guests, all of them close relatives and friends, to our ceremony.

We spent our first wedding night as husband and wife at the Crown Hotel.

I will post some of the photos later on.

Our thanks to Mrs. Bertha Neo, Thant Zin and Thulae and all the family and friends.

And special thanks to K Khine Win, my sister, who acted as our wedding planner.
