The Secret to Attracting Money (Audio Book)

Bookmark and Share

Dec 31, 2010


George Bernard Shaw said that “Lack of money is the root of all evil.” And some other people said that “The Love of money is the root of all evil.” To my point of view, it solely depends on how you are handling this creature called “Money”. No matter what they said, it is apparently true that we cannot survive without money. Most of us are using our own time, energy, and efforts to be able to get money for our lives. Why are we blaming money for not being able to achieve it for the amount we want? It does not depend on money, but on you and me how we treat money. Are we treating it as a partner or are we treating as an enemy, it is all up to you.

As I told you in few previous posts, the year 2010 could be named as a year of Audio books for me as of I have listened a lot of Audio books in this year. Most of those books I listened also shared on my pages for all of my friends to be able to listen too.

This time, a book I would like to share is called “The Secret To Attracting Money”. Sounds interesting, right? A lot of people are curious about that are there the secrets for attracting money? Basically, no one will believe it. If there it is, it can be learned. But the truth is that not believing that money can be attracted is one of the biggest obstacles that preventing money to come into our lives.

OK. You will be able to understand more details after listening this book. Here is a short description of the book:

Bestselling author and Secret co-star Dr. Joe Vitale teaches you how to attract money easily and effortlessly by harnessing the astounding power of the Law of Attraction!

The potential to attract money and create abundant wealth doesn't reside in your job, your circumstances, or even the economy. It resides within YOU. Your mind is equipped with the natural ability to attract as much money as you want and need -- at anytime, anyplace, in any financial climate, without struggle. You just have to know how to trigger it. This life-changing "abundance" program shows you how to tap into the awesome force of the Law of Attraction, and focus it like a laser for one purpose -- attracting more money into your life. You'll uncover empowering new thought processes that will open the floodgates to unlimited money and wealth. And you'll find out how to:

  • Attract money in any economy using a proven economy-proof formula
  • Reprogram your mind to start attracting money right away
  • Avoid the lies, myths, and media conspiracies that will keep you in a state of "victim-hood" and "poverty consciousness"
  • And so much more!

If having money, wealth, prosperity, and financial freedom are at the top of your personal wish list, The Secret to Attracting Money will act as the perfect blueprint to make your wishes come true.

Singapore: Customers' Satisfaction Survey of Myanmar Restaurants (2010 Dec)

Bookmark and Share

Dec 27, 2010

Here is one more time of customers’ satisfaction survey of Myanmar Restaurants in Peninsula plaza, and this is the second time of survey. First time, it was held in previous August 2010 and visitors of Mgluaye’s pages pick up and set the ranking as follow:
Yanant Thit got 7 out of 22 votes,
Mya Nandar got 6 out of 22 votes,
Inle got 3 out of 22 votes,
Oriental House and Win Myanmar got 2 out of 22 votes each, and
Shwe War Myay and Zeyar got 1 out of 22 votes each.

This time around, there is a minor change; Nann San of previous contest was changed into 149 BBQ.

I would like to brief the purpose of this survey which already mentioned in previous survey, however for those who are not be able to participate in previous survey, I would like to do this survey for two reasons as follow:


One:
We can pick up one of the restaurants that meet much of our customers’ requirements.

Two:
In our culture, if we feel something bad, we felt that this is our individual problem and we do not have place to let the other people knows that we do not like this thing and that thing. Actually, if a stall have low level of customer satisfaction standard makes feel bad to other people too.

By doing this survey, the restaurant got the highest rank in survey will be ideal for the rest, and the rest who do not win the highest rank also will try to improve their service standards in future. You don’t need to enter any personal data on this survey and this survey is running anonymously.

I hope all of friends of Mgluaye’s Pages will be able to contribute this survey.

As of this survey started on 28th Dec 2010, it will be opened for contributing of your opinions and ideas until 15th January 2011. The result will be published in second half of January.

I would like to say thank you to all of friends who contribute in previous survey and special thanks to usual visitor, Hnin for remembering and reminding this survey for this month.

Here we go! Let's start giving votes to your choice of restaurant!

Dec 15 : Day of the State of Arakan

Bookmark and Share

Dec 15, 2010

Arakan Flag
Today, 15th December 2010 is the day of the state of Arakan, and this is the time of 25th Anniversary of celebrating since this date was set as the Day of the State for Arakan. So, as per giving honor to the our native land, Arakan, I would like to share about Arakan state. The following article was extracted from the Book of The Golden Mrauk U written by U Shwe Zan. The article name was "The Rakhine State".





Rakhine State


Rakhine (formerly known as Arakan) is one of the seven states constituted in the Union of Myanmar, separated by the long range of Rakhine Yoma from Myanmar proper and by the river Naaf from Bangladesh. Rakhine State is a narrow strip of coastal region intersected and blue mountain ranges.

Having an area of 36,778 km it constitutes of 4 Districts, 17 townships and 1,041 villages tracts and the population is a little over 2 million.

Most of the people are Rakhine: there are also Chins who occupy the hill areas of Mrebon, Ramree, Ann and Taungoke townships. Many hill tribes interspersed with the Rakhines in the region are Daingnet, Mro, Khumi and Thet ( also known as Chakmas). Many other nationals like Myanmars, Kamans, Bengalis and Maramagrees (Bruas) also live in many townships.

Physical Background

The whole region is hilly and the coast is rocky and fringed with islands which are in fact tops of submerged mountains. The larger and more important islands are Ramree, Manaung (Cheduba) and Barongas, all in the central section. The highest elevation of the region is 6,500 ft (Sondaung). The rivers of Rakhine, with the exceptions of those in the north, are small mountain streams. The rivers of Rakhine, with exceptions of those in the north, are small mountain streams. The rivers Naaf, Mayu, Kaladan and Lemro are all in the north. The Saingdin, a tributary of the Mayu is noted for its water-fall, which has good prospects for development of hydro-electric power.

The plain of Sittwe is the only sizable plain which is formed by the deltas of Mayu, Kaladan and Lemro rivers. It is fertile and serves as the major rice producing area of Rakhine. Sittwe, the capatil of Rakhine state is situated in this plain.

The Rakhine Coast, though generally rocky, has some lovely beaches. One such beach is the Ngapali, closed to Thandway and is Myanmar’s leading seaside resort. Kan Thar Yar, another white sand beach is situated in Gwa Township along Gwa – Ngathaing Chaung road. Now a day, both beaches cab be easily assessable by car from other States and Divisions.


Economy

Since time immemorial Rakhine has been called as Dhanyawaddy, “The Land of Bounteous Rice”. Marine sector is next to agriculture. Rice mills, sawmills, edible oil mills, leather tanning mill, coconut fiber mills and sugar mill are playing some important roles in industrial sector. Household hand looms Rakhine longyis are popular in Myanmar.


Rakhine State Trunk Road

A 521 miles 5 furlongs long Rakhine State trunk road of Ngathaing Chaung - Gwa Thandwe – Taungoke – Ann - Minbya – Mraukk U- Kyauktaw – Ponnagyun – Sittwe is completely constructed and the trunk road extended up to Kyaukphyu.

Besides, road linking town with town and village with village total length of 343 miles 7 furlongs are also constructed.

To support trunk roads, many long and short crossing bridges of rivers and creeks have been constructed to day. Some important bridges are Gissarpanadi, Ra Maung suspension bridge, Mraung Bwe, Minchaung, Ma Ai, Kyaintally of Kyauktaw, Minbya, Sittwe, Ann and Gwa townships respectively which became strong connecting links of the trunk roads.

Cultural Heritage

Mrauk U offers some of the richest archaeological sites in South East Asia. Mrauk U’s rich heritage is evidenced by many magnificent monuments and Pagodas like Shitethaung, Htukkant Thein etc.

The City of Mrauk U is situated 40 miles upstream to the north-east of Sittwe. Founded in 1430, and rebuilt by the help of the Portuguese a century later, Mrauk U stood long for threre hundred and fifty five years. The city was a cosmopolitan city, fortified by a 30 – kilometer long fortification and an intricate net of moats and canals. At the centre of the city was the Royal Palace, looming high over the surrounding area like as Asian acropolis. Waterways formed canals and creeks earned the fame of a distinct resemblance to the city of Venice. It is in the Mrauk U period of Rakhine history that Rakhine civilization saw its Golden Days.

The pride of Mrauk U is in such majestic monuments as the massive Shitethaung Temple that houses a rich array of Lord Buddha’s previous lives and also the figurines of Rakhine culture if that period. The colossal Htukkant Thein, an ordination hall with several images exhibiting clothing popular in the 16th century, richly decorated central pillar of Anndaw Thein and countless others that have rarely been visited by foreigners – all having more or less superb stone works.

The excavation works of old Vesali (5 miles north of Mrauk U) which was conducted between 1980 – 1985 added a richer collection of artifact to an already – rich hoards of priceless antiques above the soil. Research on the new found antiquities of Rakhine civilization may inspire scholars to delve into many hidden facts of ancient times. Numismatic studies have unveiled that coin – making was popular in Rakhine as far back as in the 4th century. The wealth of cultural heritage is manifest in statues and inscriptions. Anandacandra inscription, wrought by Anandacandra – an 8th century Vesali King, records in over 60 Sanskrit stanzas which disclosed the consecutive succession of long line of kings that ruled old Rakhine up to his time.

The crown of the Rakhine artifact that has been taken away from the soil of its origin is the Mahamuuni Image or Rakhine Pharagri in Mandalay that still receives sacred allegiance from millions of South East Asian Buddhist devotees. The colossal image, rising to 13 ft, made the soil of its origin to be nicknamed as the “Land of Great Image.” The shrine of Mahamuni at Kyauktaw, the alleged seat of the original image, has stone statues in its place, datable to 5th century AD.

How's that, Ko Ko

I hope you all will know Songkran of Thailand. It is a kind of water festival that people splash water each another believing that water can clean bad faiths of the last year. Its concept was originated in Buddhism and it normally fall on New Year of Buddhist calendar. It falls under somewhere in April of Georgian calendar. As of it’s originated in Buddhism, no wonder it also involved in Arakan which is one of the prominent land of Buddhism. Rather than India, which is first origin of Buddhism, Arakan is a land of the earliest land spread Buddhism and able to sustain until today. Arakanese also felt proud of it.

OK. Let’s talk about water festival. There are a lot of water festivals all over the world. The main theme of the festival is still same, but the method of playing water is slightly different in Arakan.

The youngsters from all over the townships organize and build the venue called Man Dats, come with stage for performance. Usually there is long traditional boat to use as water tank. There are ladies standing as a row inside the Man Dat, and then there are elder woman who is managing to allow the ladies and the visitors to Man Dat to be able to play water peacefully.

If you were a guy who wants to play water with a certain lady inside Man Dat, you have to make a request to the elder woman inside Man Dat. She will help you to check whether the lady you request is available or not. If the lady is available, you are allowed to play water with that lady. In the playing time, you can have a chit chat with her, asking her name, asking where she stay, and so on. Most of the dates in Arakan starts from this event.

In some cases, if the girl you want to play water with is your girlfriend, you can ask her to wait until you come to Man Dat.

The song that I am going to share with you is about a girl who feels angry for late coming boyfriend who asks her to wait until he arrived for water playing.

Here is MTV of same song,


Have fun to listen to Arakanese song.

Buying Electronics Goods At Downtown Yangon

Bookmark and Share

Oct 19, 2010

This post may be a kind of stirring shit about the shops selling electronic goods in downtown Yangon. Actually, I would like to share my feeling of disappointment that I faced on buying of one electronic goods from these shops.

You all will see all these types of washing machines in the market of downtown, Yangon. I also happened to get a chance to walk around the market and bought one semi-auto washing machine somewhere in last August. I walked around the two main streets of electronic good market in Yangon, Pansodan and Bo Aung Gyaw.

If you were a usual reader of this blog, you might know that I had been working for an electronic goods trading company in a few years back. Generally I know that what types of washing machines is good and what types is not. Again, I am one of the people who is selecting the most feasible and worthy items every time I buy all these electronic products.

I went in and ask a few shops that were selling these goods, and gone through the different types of marketing techniques. I felt not too bad for a few shops though they are a bit pushy to customer to buy their products, some were extremely bad. Customers have rights to ask you whatever questions they want because washing machine is not a kind of device we need to buy one, two units in a few months. It is an item we bought and can even last for using over decades if the item’s quality and user’s care is good.

Though I am not expert in electronic goods, I knew that these items were origin of China. I could say that these are from China origin depending upon the design and workmanship of these products. However most of the shop owners and sale persons were insisting saying that these things were not coming from China. And, I felt very surprise that the techniques they all putting up fake labels on these devices were like the genuine one. Some are labeled to be Hitachi, Samsung, and even National too.

We knew that there are a few products labeled Nibban and distributed all over the market are coming from China origin too, but it is quite OK to say that they are labeled their own brand and trying to promote in the market.

Today, majority of the equipments are producing in China mainland, for example, iPhone of Apple Inc too, designing and built by Apple only. Then mass production was done by Foxxconn of Taiwan. We knew that the word OEM is used up for all these types of manufacturer and it is OK for user to accept depending on quality of the equipments they all are selling.

Too much things I am talking around. OK. Let’s conclude. The main thing I am to trying to say to all of these shop owners and sales people that now world is changing into global village already. You cannot hide something which is not correct and you may not try to cheat your valued customers which are life blood of your business. Why don’t you want to promote without making fake labels which are not real and all these customers already know that you all are cheating. You may want to revert back my question by saying that the customers won’t buy if you are not sticking high impression brands. Again, this is a story of chicken and egg too.

In the first place, you all are selling the genuine goods, then as of some reasons of difficulties of importing the so called high end brands, you all are trying to play around with customers. You import the look-alike models of these high end branded goods, then easily changed labels and start selling these goods and ended up with high profits. It may be sweets for your business but it is like short term goodness only. You all will suffer in future and even destroying integrity of the electronics good trading market which you all are the major player of this market.

Today, windows to the world have opened widely and it is extremely easy to know for everybody that from which place your labeled-products coming in? It should be better to reconsider the way of marketing your products. Our customers’ point of view is very clear; we all are very happy to accept substantially good quality products with its genuine named product than fake labeled high end products.

Note: All the photos of the products were taken from website of Ningbo WEICHI Electrical Appliance Co., Ltd. I don't want to point finger any single shop from the market. Just want to voice out from the customers' point of view and sharing a piece of knowledge between layman customers like myself.

I had decided to buy the small washing machine with 6 Kg of washing capacity, the one exactly same with the uppermost photo. Believe it or not, it was labeled as ELBA at cost of 200 thousand Kyats (Approx: 200 USD).

What Do Women Want from Men (Audio Book)

Bookmark and Share

Oct 15, 2010

Woman.

A creature of mystery; which is difficult to understand. Since childhood, boys interest in matters of girls and girls interest in boys. Then, they become adult, choose one each other hoping that he/she will be the rightful partner for his/her life and tied a knot to form a happy and peaceful family.

Here is a question. Did all the family have their hopes of happiness and peacefulness? The most percentage of answer will be "NO". Why? The main reason that they couldn't get their dreamed happiness and peacefulness is lack of understanding each other. Man does not understand what his woman wants and does not want. Woman does not know what her gentleman wants and does not want. Apprently, it's look like that we do not need to have too much effort to try to understand each other in the time be being lover. After marriage only, we try to understand each other. The time is already passed. There is not much left to be able to compromise. At the end of the day, lack of mutual understanding between each other became a big troublemaker in the family and some of them leads to end up with divorce.

Therefore, why don't we try to understand what the second part of our body or the most important half part of our life before jumping into tying a knot? It will help you understand your life partner-to-be more in details and assist to be able to fulfill your dream of building happy and peaceful family for your life.

Here is a book named "What do women want from men?" that I would like to share with you all.

Here is a short description of the book:

Wondering what went wrong with his marriage, Dan True asked 100 women of varying ages and professions how they felt about men in regards to virtually everything. Here are the women's candid comments about such critical issues as money, marriage, relationships, lying, anger, listening, and expectations. In addition, they'll speak out about intimacy, discussing everything from cuddling, turn-ons, and turn-offs to their deepest fantasies.

Buffalo Herding Song - Khaing Kyaw Lun

Bookmark and Share

Sep 25, 2010

First of all, it will need to introduce what is Makkala? Makkala is a type of traditional hand made hats used in Arakan. It is made up of bamboo and foliage of palm trees . It is used in Arakan by its own people since ancient time. Nowadays, Makkala is well-known for throughout Myanmar as of it was used as a symbol of the leading political party in Myanmar, National League for Democracy. The origin of this song is famous, ancient poem about buffalo-boy (not cow boy).

In country sides of Myanmar, buffalos are used for farming as like cows. Some says that strength of buffalo is better than that of cows and productivity of the farming with buffalo too. After using them in farming, in their leisure hours, teenagers from the villages bring them to wander around the nearby mountains and dells to allow them to relax.

There is a bell made up of wood hanged around the buffalo’s neck, it makes sounds as the buffalo moving, helping the buffalo boy to find out where are they if they got lost inside the forest near to small mountains. In my childhood days, I asked my dad what those things are hanging around the cows’ and buffalo's neck, my dad gave me a funny answer as a joke, he told me that is buffalo's radio, they were listening while they wandering around the forest.

Buffalo herding song is derived from the buffalo teaming poem, and it was used as a poem in text books in high school in Myanmar once a few decades ago. Then, it was omitted in the updated text books already. Now it was renewed as a song by famous Arakanese singer, Khaing Kyaw Lun.

Here is the song of Buffalo Herding, I hope you should have fun by listening and watching MTV of it.

One of the major difficulties that most of Myanmar people coming  abroad and looking for job (like myself) has to face is job interview. Though English language is the second official written language, but it is not common language spoken in Myanmar (formerly known as Burma). Therefore, the first thing while we reach abroad and face the interviewer who speaks English language, there is a big difficulty in communication for us (it doesn't mean all, I mean most of the people like myself). Other than how to convince the interviewer by telling him what things we are able to do, the first thing we worried is that are we able to understand what he is talking about? And second thing is that is he able to understand what I am trying to answer? These two things are the major obstacles that we usually had to pass through.

There are a lot of friends who are capable of working skillfully in their specialized category of jobs, lack of communication skills and faced such kind of difficulties and sometime fail to get a job within stays granted by respective immigrations of countries, eventually have to go back to Burma.

So, for those who are still striving to get job in this time or those who are trying to change better career in their lives, I would like to share one of the Audio book that will help you to go through the second item of our difficulties. How to convince the interviewer by telling what you can do, and what are you going to add value to their organizations if you get employed in it.

Here is a short description of the book:

Why do you want this job?

Why should I hire you?

Why do you want to leave your current job?

Do you have convincing answers ready for these important questions?

Landing a good job is a competitive process and often the final decision is based on your performance at the interview. By following the advice of prominent career planning and human resources expert Peter Veruki, you'll know you have the right answers at your job interview. Peter Veruki has been Director of Career Planning and Placement at the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University for ten years. In addition to serving on the College Placement Council Board of Governors for six years, Mr. Veruki was chairman of the CPC's professional Training and Development Committee, where he helped design and conduct interview training programs.

Missing Crescent Land - Wong Ko Khaing

Bookmark and Share

Sep 19, 2010

As we have been abroad and staying for long time, initially we hoped that as longer as we stay there, lesser and lesser we would be missing our home land. But, actually it was totally wrong. We all human being, even though we migrated from one place to another for certain unavoidable reasons of life, the place we called home town or native land, we would be missing it for whole life. For Arakanese, it is more obvious than other races I have known on the world.

Today, I would like to feature one of the Arakanese songs sung by Arakanese Singer, Wong Ko Khaing. It’s about missing the crescent land.

Results of Customers' Satisfaction Survey of Myanmar Restaurants

Bookmark and Share

Sep 8, 2010

I'd like to say sorry about that survey on the customers' satisfication of Myanmar Restaurant results was coming out quite late. We had received all together 22 entries of our visitors' views on this survey.

The ranking on the customers' sanctification was as follow:

Yanant Thit got 7 votes and win the first place in the listing.
Mya Nandar got 6 votes and win the second place in the listing.
Inle got 3 votes and the third place in the listing.
Oriental House and Win Myanmar got 2 votes and stood fourth place in the listing.
Shwe War Myay and Zeyar got 1 vote each and stood fifth place in the listing.

As of this is first time survey, we cannot said that the results are 100% accurate. We will be running one more time survey by coming December 2010. We hope that the upcoming survey will come out more accurate figure for the Myanmar food stalls.

Anyway, we appreciated all of our friends' opinions and contribution.

Thank you.

Singapore: Customers' Satisfaction Survey of Myanmar Restaurants

Bookmark and Share

Aug 8, 2010

This time, I would like to run a survey among my friends who are living in Singapore and experienced with food stalls those selling Myanmar Foods especially in Peninsula Plaza. Normally, most of our Myanmar people used to go to Peninsula plaza for certain reasons, some people go there for transferring money to home, some people go there for having food of our own tastes.

Before two years in the past, there had not so many Myanmar food stalls in Peninsula plaza, we have a few of them, like Mya Nandar, Ye Yint, and etc., Now today we have a handful of food stalls opened since about one year ago and currently running their business and serving people.

Most of the time, we used to go to same food stalls which we think quite OK for us for some reasons. I found out that some of the food stalls are full with customers most of the time, and some don’t. Then, I got an idea of what our Myanmar people likes in their food stalls and what we don’t like. I would like to run a survey. I would like to run survey for two reasons.

One: 
We can pick up one of the restaurants that meet much of our customers’ requirements.

Two: 
In our culture, if we feel something bad, we felt that this is our individual problem and we do not have place to let the other people knows that we do not like this thing and that thing. Actually, if a stall have low level of customer satisfaction standard makes feel bad to other people too.


By doing this survey, the restaurant got the highest rank in survey will be ideal for the rest, and the rest who do not win the highest rank also will try to improve their service standards in future. You don’t need to enter any personal data on this survey and this survey is running anonymously.

I would like to run this survey quarterly for a year. I hope that visitors who visit Mgluaye’s pages will help and contribute with their opinion in this survey. It can help yourself and others by let food stalls knows that they are at the highest rank in customers’ satisfactions or they need to improve their service standards. Survey will be opened a week period of time for your opinions to fill in, and closed on 15th August 2010. Then the results will be announced on mgluaye's pages.

I would like to say Big “Thank you” in advance.



Update : Survey was ended on 15th August 2010. Thank you.

The Little Gold Book of YES! Attitude

Bookmark and Share

Jul 28, 2010

While we were working in Singapore, most of us know that there is no extra time for us. Almost all day is busy with job related matters and leave small gaps of time for leisure only. So, every time we asked our friends whether they got time to read a book or something like that, most of our friends replied same answer: “where got such times to read?”

It is correct that most of us working in Singapore do not have enough spare time to read. But, I realized that without reading, our brain will go dumb day after day. So, I will need to find out alternate way to be able to read books while I was doing other things.

So that I searched audio books online and downloaded them and put them into my mp4 player. While I am on the way to my workplace in the morning and on the way back to my home at evening, I listen those audio books. This can help me in two ways. It can improve my English language proficiency and help me to be able to listen those books that I do not have enough spare time to read too.

And this is my pleasure to share these books I had listened.

Here is a good inspirational book about Yes Attitude. I am still in progress of listening, haven’t completed yet. But I uploaded it for you all because I am sure it will help you in certain way. Here is a short description of this book.

Pile Design and Construction Practice

Bookmark and Share

Jul 26, 2010

This book was uploaded as per request of one of my friends, Obama, (not the president of the United States, :) ) who is regular visitor to my blog. This book is written by Author Michael J. Tomlinson and John Woodward, this is fifth edition. I hope that it can help Obama.

Here is a description of the book:

Published in the Taylor and Francis
ISBN 0-203-96429-2 © 1977, 1987, 1994, 2008 Michael Tomlinson and John Woodward

The increased adoption of piling is not only due to the availability of more efficient mechanical equipment. Developments in analytical methods of calculating bearing capacity and dynamic methods for load and integrity testing have resulted in greater assurance of sound long-term performance. Further economies in foundation and superstructure design are now possible because of the increased ability to predict movements of piles under load, thus allowing engineers to adopt with confidence the concept of redistribution of load between piles with consequent savings in overall pile lengths and cross-sectional dimensions, as described in this new edition. Since the publication of the fourth edition of this book, Euro-code 7, Geo-technical Design, has been issued. As the name implies this code does not deal with all aspects of foundation design; there are extensive cross-references to other Euro-codes dealing with such matters as the general basis of design and the properties of constructional materials. The Code does not cover foundation design and particularly construction as comprehensively as the present British Standard 8004 Foundations, and the British National Annex to Euro-code 7 is yet to be published. The authors have endeavored to co-ordinate the principles of both codes in this new book.
