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.

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.

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.
