New techniques in Spreading HIV (Becareful) Must Read)

Dear All,
A few weeks ago, in a cinema, a person felt something poking from her seat. When she got up to see what it was, she found a needle sticking out of the seat with a note attached saying "You have just been infected by HIV (AIDS)".

The Disease Control Center (in Paris ) reports many similar events in many other cities recently. All tested needles were HIV Positive. The Center also reports that needles have been found in cash dispensers (ATM) at public banking machines. We ask everyone to use extreme caution when faced with this kind of situation. All public chairs/seats should be inspected with vigilance and caution before use. A careful visual inspection should be enough. In addition, they ask that each of you pass this message along to all members of your family and your friends of the potential danger.

Recently, one doctor has narrated a somewhat similar instance that happened to one of his patients at the Praia Cinema in Delhi . A young girl engaged and about to be married in a couple of months, was pricked while the movie was going on. The tag with the needle had the
message : "Welcome to the World of HIV family". Though the doctors told her family that it takes about 6 months before the virus grows strong enough to start damaging the system and a healthy victim could survive about 5-6 years, the girl died in 4 months, perhaps more
because of the "Shock thought". We all have to be careful at public places, rest God help! Just think about saving a life by forwarding this message. Please, take a few seconds of your time to pass along.

Remember ... to pass this on to everyone you know... Probably you can help save a life.

Important ! About Visa for Japanese

I got one mail from Japanese friend as below.

I contacted Myanmar Embassy in Tokyo at 0915(YGN 0645) and received following answer.    Very Important!

111 New documents were added for Japanese people.
<1> Working certificate at the company
<2> Itinerary in Myanmar

222 It takes about 3 weeks in order to be issued the Myanmar visa. Because the embassy will check up each documents in detail.

333 I suppose that taking visa for Japanese must be very severe, This action were decided by Myanmar Government ,especially for Japanese people.

444 Therefore it takes too much time to prepare to visit Myanmar. It seems to be much easer to take visa in Bangkok. In Japan, too difficult. Some case will be refused to issue visa.

555 In Asia, now Myanmar is the most difficult country to visit from Japan. Normally it takes 2-3 days to get visa. It can not be helped after the accident in Yangon.

Thanks him so much for his kindly inquired for us.
According to the result of his inquiry, we understood that Myanmar visa is too difficult to get at the moment in Japan.
We are so disappointed on this situation.

Who can guess when this status will recover ???

As we know, MOFA's declared level is 2 to go and visit Myanmar.When level goes to 1, Japanese will come and visit Myanmar as normally.

Wish their visiting support to recover and revitalize Myanmar Tourism industry

Tourism supports the Myanmar people Direct

Tourism can fight poverty – supports education – raise of social status

International tourists participate at Taunggyi Hotair Balloon Festival

The November fullmoon is an important date in Myanmar tourist calendar, especially for those wishing to visit Taunggyi, Lake Inle and its environs.

During this period there are many colourful and enchanting festivals at Taunggyi. One of the most famous is the Hotair Balloon Competition where hotair balloons of various sizes, shapes and figures are sent up into the sky both in competition and sheer joy. The competition is divided into two parts: a daytime competition and night-time competition.

Balloons sent up during the daytime are small but nevertheless they are diverse. There are cows, elephants, birds and even rhinoceroses sailing up into the sky. They may be alone or in pairs or even in groups of 4 or 5 balloons. The balloons that are sent up at night are huge, some measuring more than 30 feet in diameter and 60-70 feet high. They are hung with many small glass-paper lanterns on the outside and teams must race to finish lighting them up in stipulated period. As they fly up pyrotechnics displays are released against the dark background. Marks are given for the creativity, flight patterns, outside decorations, the ability to complete all tasks in stipulated time etc. But whatever the results everyone has a goodtime, including many tourists.
I am pleased to direct
this blog to know more about Taunggyi Tazaung Daing.
This year, they did do webcast successfully and we have to know about competed hot air ballon of 301 and it is 64 more than last year.

Parade Of Lights Lit Up Taunggyi

On the evening of the November Fullmoon evening the whole of Taunggyi is lit up. Teams from all the residential wards of Taunggyi line up along the main road with decorated floats with scenes from the Jataka (the Holy Life of Lord Buddha) or with small lanterns in their hands. The snaked their way through the town to the Sulamuni Lawka Chantha Pagoda at the other end of the town to pay homage to the Buddha on this auspicious day. This is a tradition that has been observed in Taunggyi throughout the years.

Kahtein or the Offering of Holy Robes to the Monks.

After 3 months of monsoon the robes of the monks had become soiled and Lord Buddha had permitted the laity to offer new holy robes to them. This tradition has been carried on throughout the whole Buddhist world including Myanmar. But the ceremony of offering holy robes to the monks takes on a special significance in Taunggyi. On the eve of the Fullmoon day of November all the residential quarters of Taunggyi gather along the main road with their offerings to congregate at the main Ordination Hall in the centre of the town. The offerings include not only holy robes but also other necessary items for the monks like blankets, towels and medicines etc. These are hung on decorated frames and carried on the shoulders of the participants. The whole procession proceeds towards the main Ordination Hall accompanied by native music troupes with much dancing and chanting of the Holy Scriptures. All the offerings are deposited in front of the Hall where lots are drawn between the many monasteries around the town to divide the offerings.

In others bloggers' anniversary, I have been to wish by delighting and enjoying.
As for me, I have two blogs: one is for English and another is for Myanmar. Although these two blogs were not Twin by creating them at the same time, because of the same owner, without aiming and out of blue, both blogs are strangely needed to be posted as 100th post. Thence, being unbelievable, I have to consider to post as special and then I want to post this with both of Myanmar and English version.

For human being's life, likewise we used to thank infinity to mother, who gives birth and take after to grow up our lives, for my these two blogs, I would like to say Thanks a million to all my brothers and sisters in this blogosphere who support and look up so as to stand and alive long time.

Where as beneficiary, some are good support with good will and some gave pressure and suppress with putting blame. So, I want to keep it in mind with thanks to later one. For first class beneficiary, I do say thank with mentioning by their names.

On 28th Feb, my birthday, I created one blog. What is it blog? I start to know it when I found out Ko Maung Hla's blog address in Myanmar Cupid Forum. Although I have one blog, as I don't know where I can start to post anything, I had to visit and read a lot in many other blogs about two weeks. From the time is being, on 13th March, I start to post my first step and then, my English blog is alive. Being posting with testing, being greeting and introducing in Myanmar Bloggers Forum, I did know Myanmar Bloggers more and more.

In my English Blog, regular audience who wrote comments are Ko Yan Aung, Barnyar, Ma Hay Mar, Michael Sync and Linlet. In Forum, once I know and read about procedure of publishing Myanmar Bloggers Book which arranged by Myanmar Bloggers, I contacted with Ko Nayphonelatt, Ko Soe Zeya and Ko Saturn God according to donate fund and join with their hands. Firstly seeing Blogger is Saturn god who collect donating fund from me. Firstly online contacting and chatting blogger is Hololu( Zin Ko Latt). As I donn't know who is Hololu although I added his mail address, he said stupid to me and it was remembrance for us. At real life, before bloggers gathering, being frankly and friendly speaking and familiarly discussing for any bloggers' actions till Today, that blogger is Mayor Nay Phone Latt.

Unnh, So and so, my blogging age is around 2and half months. On 22nd May, I created another Myanmar blog again. There, younger sister, Ei Mon Soe, she tagged me to write about ten weird Thing about me. So, I did try to type Myanmar with Win font and then I posted it by Yan Aung's kind assistance to change with Zawgyi One Unicode font. So as to write that Myanmar Blog, Ko Yan Aung's frequently saying and helping everything, in my C-box, 99Sanay, who greetings and encouraging words. Another bloggers are Ko Sayhtoo, Ko Chan Mya Soe, Mayvelous, Thamudaya, Ko Thant Zaw Minn and Ko Toe who oftenly wrote vulnerable comments in my blog.

After I tested and destructed coding in my blog by myself as much as I know, Ko Yan Aung and Ko Chan Mya Soe also helped me out without grumbling whatever and wherever I needed to maintain my blog's template and coding as well.

Whenever I needed to know blogs' addresses and I wanted to add add-ons, as I went and read his blog, I did friendly blogger grandfather, Nyi Lynnseck before we met at outside.

After my Myanmar blog is speed up and many new bloggers came out in our blogosphere, I have a chance to make friendship with them and I also want to say thanks you all for coming and visiting my both blogs and for teasing and shouting in my c-box always friendly and happily without boring.

As conclusion, either names are included in this post or not for my missing out to mention by lack of memory, I am still thanking and post it as a record.

Friends in football field

World = Football field

The world is like a football field
We, The friends of same ambition,
Are a football team.
Our same aim is to score goals,
As much as we can hold.
You are a striker,
But sometime
You will play as a goalkeeper
You are a midfielder,
But if need
You will have to play as a defender.
Of course, defending not to be scored goals
Is as important as to score goal.
As the world's field is so wide,
Sometime, we can't see each other for a long life.
No matter what happened,
Our main theme is that
Our team to win the match
Let's try our best
Let's play with our heart
And let's take the cups
For leaving our marks
On the pages of the past.

Nay Phone Latt

Remark: I can have a chance to read this poem which is written by my friend, Nay Phone Latt. He mentioned this poem is for all friends of same ambition. I just wanna share to read it. All credit goes to him. You can read original here.

Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival at Inle Lake

The Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival is one of the most famous pagoda festival in Myanmar and well known all over the world. The festival is held every year during the month of October and lasts for more than 20 days as the 4 Buddha Images are taken around the lake in a gilded barge pulled by hundrerds of leg-rowers in long canoes in front.These images sometimes stay over night at some villages and sometimes just stop over for a short while. Rowing competitions are also held. Pilgrims from all over the country come to this festival to pay homage to the Buddha Images. Many are from the plains, some from the mountains, while others are from small remote villages but everybody is here to gain merit and enjoy the festive air of the event. Foreign tourists are also fascinated not only by the religiouness of the festival goers but also with the generosity of the pilgrims as they pray in front of the Images and offer tissue thin gold leaves to put on the Images. This sense of true generosity and the religiousness of the people is evidenced by the Images itself for after decades of being gilded by countless number of gold foils they had become huge globes of gold.

This year's festival had also begun. The Phaung Daw Oo Images arrived yesterday at Nyaung Shwe and will stay there for three nights. After that they will continue their tour around the lake. As usual the welcoming ceremony at Nyaung Shwe was thronged with local pilgrims and foreign tourists alike. Everybody is invited to come visit the festival and see the real nature of the Myanmar people.

Coming Festivals
Myanmar is a land of festivals. Every month there is a pagoda festival, even during the monsoon season. But with the cessation of the monsoon rains the country comes alive with pagoda festivals, religious festivals etc.
On the Full-moon day of November there are some notable pagoda and religious festivals coming up.
-Kekku Pagoda Festival(Shan)
-Taunggyi Hot-air Balloon Competition
-Taunggyi Kahtein(Offering of Holy Robes to the Monks) Ceremony.
-Taunggyi Parade of Lights Festival

Thadingyut Festival (Festival of Lights)

Lord Buddha spent the whole Buddhist Lent in Tavatimsa(Abode of the Celestials) and came down to the Abode of Humans on the Fullmoon Day of Thadingyut(26th October). Legend says when He returned to the Abode of Humans, surrounded by Celestial Beings, the people greeted him by lighting up their homes. This tradition is still being carried on to this day. The whole country, from big cosmopolitan cities to remote villages are lit up. People hang brightly coloured lights on their homes. Pagodas are lit up with countless candles. The monks are offered soon (food) by the lay people to gain merit. Young children visit their elders to pay homage with cakes and fruits. This is indeed a joyous time for the Myanmar people. And we invite you all to celebrate this auspicious occasion together with the Myanmar people.



The authorities had announced that the curfew restrictions imposed in Yangon and Mandalay has been lifted effective 20-10-07 (Saturday).

This is the result of improved security situation in both cities and the return to normalcy in the whole country.

Blood Type Reveals Personality

Does Your Blood Type Reveal Your Personality?

You want to be a leader, and when you see something you want, you keep striving until you achieve your goal. You are a trend-setter, loyal, passionate, and self-confident. Your weaknesses include vanity and jealously and a tendency to be too competitive.
You like harmony, peace and organization. You work well with others, and are sensitive, patient and affectionate. Among your weaknesses are stubbornness and an inability to relax.
You're a rugged individualist, who's straightforward and likes to do things your own way. Creative and flexible, you adapt easily to any situation. But your insistence on being independent can sometimes go too far and become a weakness.
Cool and controlled, you're generally well liked and always put people at ease. You're a natural entertainer who's tactful and fair. But you're standoffish, blunt, and have difficulty making decisions.

What is your blood type? And is it match with your personality?

Taungpyone Nat Festival in Year 2007

The onset of monsoon season makes June and July relatively quiet months in Myanmar. There are, however, various smaller Buddhist festivals to be enjoyed.

Taungpyone Nat or Spirit Festival is a popular five days festival held in Taungpyone near Mandalay. This year 2007, it was held from 23-Aug to 28-Aug and 26 & 27 was crowded most. Today is end of this festival. It was successfully and happily finished.

According to tradition, Nats are spirits that must be appeared or they will wreak havoc in peoples’ lives. The two Nat Brothers honored during Taungpyone Nat belong to the 37 well- known Myanmar Nats. The story of the two Nat Brothers originated during the rule of King Anawrahta, when it was the duty of every person in the kingdom to contribute a brick and a handful of sand for the construction of a pagoda. The brothers failed to contribute their share and orders came from the king for them to be mildly punished. Unfortunately, the Nat Brothers were accidentally killed. The King was remorseful and built a big Nat (spirit) shrine by the side of the Pagoda honoring the two brothers. The homage-paying festival is now held annually to appear the spirits as it is believed that the Nat Brothers can fulfill your wishes, protect you from ill-fate and danger, and bring good luck, prosperity and progress.

I Wanna Grumble

Wow! So surprise.

This morning, out of blue, government selling fuel prices rise high twice more than before.
For diesel, price becomes 3000 MMK(Myanmar Kyats) per gallon instead of 1500MMK, yesterday price. For Petrol, it is 2500MMK.
As a result of this, most of transportation buses cannot run as usual.
So, people are blocked at every bus stop like traffic jam.
And they need to pay bus fares twice like 100MMK instead of 50MMK for near 1or 2stops and 200MMK for long stops. So pity our people daily life, isn't it.

In addition this, electricity was cut out within these days.
So, to use electricity, generator is needed to operate with petrol which even so high price.
Why should we face with this difficulties?
How can we overcome like this disappointment?
Who will have duty and responsibilities to solve this problem?
We have no way except grumbling.
We are thinking of whether we are being human being who have human rights.
Although I am very depressed for being borne in Myanmar, I cannot still leave others in the lurch.
We cannot help it except grumbling like this.

The Man Who Twirls His Beard

Once upon a time there was a rich man who had a beautiful daughter. Like most rich men of his time, he was worried about his wealth to which he clung like a leech. He was a shrewd man, this rich man, ever conscious of the changing times. He knew only too well he had to move with the tide, which at that time was threatening to sweep away his riches.

The rich man pondered over his problem and at last he thought he had found a solution. His most valuable asset, he remembered, was his beautiful daughter. If only he could get a young man, wise and clever, one, whose wits could match anyone who threatened his wealth, the rich man thought, he would have no more worries.

With this object in mind, he turned down many of his daughter's suitors whom he thought not wise and clever enough. One day his wife, anxious of the daughter's future, said: "My good man, it's high time you did decide whou should marry our lass. It's better for her to gather rosebuds while she may. Please do not tarry, or our lass will be a faded old maid.."

The rich man replied: "Don't you worry, wife. I'm biding my time. Today is the age of workers, only those who work are highly placed in society."

The wife was mortified: "Do you mean that you'd marry our lass to one of those rough brawny workers of the fields or mines? How could you think of such a thing!"

The rich man replied: " Forbear, wife. Surely you're not one of those stupid people who think that only those who weild the hammer or the sickle are workers. Don't you know that those who live by the effort of their brawn or brain are workers. I'm going to find a brain worker or an intellectual worker for our fair lass. An intellectual worker, a wise and clever one, I am going to have for my son-in-law."

The wife was pleased thinking how wonderful it would be to have a man of intellect for her son-in-law, a rare specimen to show off to the less fortunate neighbours. She urged her husband to be quick in his search.

The rich man worked diligently. Every morning he went to the market place where people from all parts of the country gathered. For days he could not find anyone that looked like a man of intellect.

At last, one day he saw a young man sitting on a wayside rest house. This young man did not do anything but sat leaning on a post, his fingers twirling his beard as if in deep thought. The rich man was struck by the grave demeanor of the young man and watched him for some days.

Day after day he saw the young man sit on the rest house twirling his beard. The rich man was now convinced that he must be indeed a man of intellect. So he took him home and gave his daughter in marriage.

The young man, now the son of the house, went on twirling his beard everyday as if in deep thought. The rich man thought that it was time to ask him what his innermost thoughts were and what wonderful plans for the future he was contemplating. So he said: "My son, everyday, you sit in deep thought twirling your beard. Pray tell me what made you contemplate so hard. I'm your father, tell me what social or economic problems you are concentrating on."

The son-in-law gazed into space and twirled his beard extra hard and said: "Oh, my father, for a long time I'd been concentrating on this problem: from whence does this beard spring? Is it from the scalp or from the mustache on my upper lip?"

This story is taken from "The 13carat diamond and other stories" by Khin Myo Chit.

May! This news will shock to the whole town/world. Hard to believe that he's gone. Why did happen to him? Why he had to leave so soon? He maybe not know himself... was his time up & got to leave the whole world behind just like that. He may have some words left to say his beloved one. 41yr! Still too young to DiE!. It's sad to see him 'OFF' at this age. He could have lived for another 20-30yrs! He is one of the best actors in MM. For sure, he will be remembered and deeply missed by everyone. Hope & pray...he is peacefully in heaven.

Dear all,

I'm very sad about that bad news.

Goodbye Myanmar Rose...
May you ever grow in our Hearts...
You were the grace that placed itself...
Where lives were torn apart...
You called to Myanmar....
and you whispered to those in pain...
Now you belong to Heaven
And the stars spell out your Name,Dway

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a Candle in the wind
Never fading with the Sunset
When the Rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along Golden Myanmar
Your Candle's burned out long before
Your Legend ever will..

We always miss you..
Be happy wherever you are...

Your's lovely Fans,
Shine & Addee

Let's talk about Love

We need Love.
Every person desperately needs to be loved by someone who is important to them. Because this need is so great in young people, they often seek love in the wrong way.
Do you know love?
Many people confuse infatuation with real love.
An infatuation is the state of being completely carried away by an attraction to someone.(i.e, being blindly in love)
What is the difference between lust and love? What is sexual attraction? What is real love?
Although these are important questions, I never been to consider about that.

Lust is an intense desire to satisfy one's sexual appetite.
Lust is selfish-the emphasis is on getting something and Love is unselfish-the emphasis is on giving. Lust demands immediate satisfaction. Love wants what is best for the other person. Love is willing to wait. Real love will wait for the right time and the right circumstances.

Sexual attraction is physical attraction between a fellow and a girl. We are built with a sex drive which causes us to be interested in the opposite sex.

Real love has many qualities. Love does contain the magical element of physical attraction. But it is a lot more than this. Love has its roots in friendship. In true love, you love the total person. You enjoy being with that person and sharing things with them.
Real love is unselfish. It will sacrifice for the one it loves. And it carries with it the vital quality of commitment. It doesn't give up or quit when problems come along.
Real love will bring out the best in you. You want the one you love to be proud of you. If you are just infatuated with someone, you may 'laze' around and daydream, but if your love is real, you apply yourself to your work, you make plans, and you prepare for the future.
Real love is not just a wonderful feeling that strikes you suddenly. It takes time to grow and develop. Some of the popular songs in the world of music give the wrong impression that falling in love with someone at first sight is real love.

Precious Love
Satan does not want you to know and experience true love. That is why he promotes all kind of false love.
What is best for you is to have precious love-not cheap sex.
If you can have a mate, who is just the right person for you, who loves you unselfishly and is committed to you for life. Then, your home will be a little bit of Heaven on earth.

There are three kinds of Love.
1) Agape Love
2) Friendship Love
3) Sexual Love
The word agape is a Greek word which is used to describe a special kind of love. Agape love is that love who gives and sacrifices for the highest good of another person.
Agape love has two main characteristics: (1) It is completely unselfish-it seeks that which is best for the one it loves, and (2) it is committed love-it keeps on loving regardless of what happens. Agape love is not just a wonderful feeling; it is the definite choice of the will. One of the amazing things about agape love is this: when you choose to love a person unselfishly and act lovingly toward them, in time you will have the feeling of love toward them.
Agape love is not just for marriage. We should develop agape love for all people. Every person is exceedingly precious.

Friendship Love: This is the warm love and affection we have for good friends-people whom we like and enjoy being with. We should have such friends from both our own sex and from the opposite sex.

Physical or Sexual Love: This is that special, most intimate kind of love between a husband and wife. We should have sexual love for only one person-the one to whom we are married.

We need all three kinds of Love-Agape, friendship and sexual love.

Love expressions itself as below:
Love suffers long.
Love is kind.
Love does not envy.
Love does not parade itself.
Love is not puffed up.
Love does not behave rudely.
Love does not seek its own.
Love is not provoked.
Love thinks no evil.
Love does not rejoice in iniquity.
Love rejoices in the truth.
Love bears all things.
Love believes all things.
Love endures all things.
Love never fails.

Land of a thousand smiles or Golden Land Myanmar

I am one blogger from Myanmar. I have been to post this by introducing my mother land as my first step of joining in Topics from 192 countries blog.
Myanmar occupies a large area of land between two of the world's most heavily populated countries- China and India, covering about 676,500 square kilometers equivalent to the size of United Kingdom and France combined.

Based on the comments by foreign travelers who have visited Myanmar, it is one of the safest countries on the planet to travel. Its natural resources and exotic beauty is a draw card for tourists to come and take documentary pictures of photogenic scenes throughout the nation.
The south-east Asian country, also known as the " Golden Land", is rich in historical heritage sites, unspoilt shady beaches, sustained traditional culture, and mysterious lakes.
Populated with 54million, Myanmar has been described as an anthropologist's dream by some writers as it possesses such a great diversity of ethnic groups with distinct dresses, customs and traditions.

While the largest group of Myanmar live mainly in the rivers, valleys and plains, many of the smaller ethnic minorities reside in the mountains and hills, increasingly venturing into the urban centers for better job opportunities and livelihood.

Yangon previously known as Rangoon has become a major business center after the government designate Pyinmana, a town in central Myanmar, as the country's capital later name Nay Pyi Daw, to which all the administrative departments have recently moved.
About Myanmar, have you ever been to read
George Orwell's Burmese Days? In this book, you can see a picture of young Buddhist nuns, dressed in pink with sweet and genuine smiles on their faces and another picture of two young Buddhist monks, sitting in front of a temple inside the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, one of the most peaceful and sacred places.

The people of Myanmar, whose genuine smiles are so beautiful; and whose smiles had given you so much joy and happiness on your trip to Myanmar. Here belows are some photos of Myanmar.

Proud to be Myanmar:

About Mogok(Ruby Land)

Around 2000-2001, I have been worked there as computer teacher. I lived happily by teaching and taking experience living there about one and half years. Now, I just to give information of the treasure land or lovely hill town.

Mogok(The Treasure Land of Myanmar)

Mogok is located 200 km north east from Mandalay and it takes six and half hours to get there. It’s situated 1170 m above sea-level. So the climate is cool in all weather. The population of the town in 200,000 and they are Shan, Palaung, Kachin, Nepali, Lisu, Danu and Myanmar.

90% of the people who live in Mogok are working for gem business such as Mining, Gem Cutting, Polishing and Trading.

The gems market (Htar-Pwe) is the main interest place where local people trade the gems everyday.
There are three different types of mining in Mogok.

(1) Four feet square mining (lay-bin-kyin)
(2) Open cut mining
(3) Tunnel type mining

At the moment, in our blogosphere, there is one blog as Mogok Media. But, they posted with Myanmar. If you can read Myanmar, you can visit and read there.
There is still another interesting story about Ngamauk ruby.

Myanmar Bloggers plan book of online postings

With regards to Myanmar Bloggers plan book of online postings, Kyaw Soe Linn, from Myanmar Times & Business Reviews, published in it as below:

BEFORE he posted photos from this year’s Thingyan Water Festival on his web log, Ko Zaw Zaw Myo Lwin only had 1000 visitors to his online site,

Since then the number of viewers has skyrocketed to more than 4000.
He said most of the visitors to his web log, or blog for short, were Myanmar people living overseas who missed taking part in their native country’s New Year celebration.

“Now I write almost every day, about my daily activities, events and memories, and I also post photos, poems and stories as well as quotes I like from books, movies and other websites,” he said.

He added that his postings have become so popular that he can now charge people up to K150,000 to post advertisements on his blog.

Ko Zaw Zaw Myo Lwin’s site is one of more than 200 Myanmar-language blogs that have appeared on the Worldwide Web since 2005, and among more than 71 million blogs around the world tracked by the search engine Technorati.

Now, in order to spread to word to locals who might not have access to the internet, a group of Myanmar bloggers have said they plan to publish a book composed of short stories, poems, articles and technological commentary that have been posted online.

“Some of us who write blogs in the Myanmar language became friends over the internet and came up with the idea of collecting our best material and publishing a book,” said Ko Soe Zeyar Htun, who writes for a local journal and is one of the organisers of the project.

“Some of the work is good enough that the bloggers can properly be called writers and poets but their work has never been published in print media,” he said.

“Our goal is to organise bloggers from all over the world who write in the Myanmar language and to introduce people who are not familiar with the internet to the concept of blogging and teach them how to post their own blogs,” he said.

He said that so far the team of 12 people involved in the project has collected about 130 articles from 40 bloggers.

“We plan to finish editing the book by the end of June and send a draft to the Press Scrutiny and Registration Division,” Ko Soe Zeyar Htun said.

“We would like to officially release the book to coincide with World Blog Day on August 31 this year but if the publishing process is not finished by then, we will at least arrange a ceremony to introduce the book to the public on that day,” he said.

Ko Nyi Lynn Set, who blogs about his personal life as well as about Myanmar history, culture and antiques, said people from all over the world view his site, many of whom post comments with information they want to share with him.
He said he hopes the book will help “double or triple the number of Myanmar-language bloggers in the coming one or two years”.
