Ducati Singapore

Yesterday, I went out from office to one of our main contractor offices which is situated on Jalan Besah. I took cab and on the way cab was stopping for traffic light somewhere on Bukit Timah road. I saw one company signboard. Company name is DUCATI SINGAPORE. I do not know what company is it. But, while I saw that signboard, I suddently pronounces it, DUCATI SINGAPORE, if you pronounce it in other way, It is ဒုကၡတိ စကၤာပူ. While I reached back office, I search its name on internet, it is a company trading motorbikes. It's sure I will remember this company name whenever I feel stress for working in Singapore. Oh.... ဒုကၡတိ စကၤာပူ.

Just for fun.

20100215 : Akyab

I had reached back to Akyab. Wandering around Akyab is not so easy. I need to rent a motorbike that cost 1000ks per hour and gasoline I need to fill in myself. But, if we don't mind the cost for that, motorbike is the most convenient way to go around Akyab.

Here we have two clock towers in Akyab, one is the old tower situated in the boundary of No.1 Police Station on Lann Ma Gri Road. The other one is quite new one built in 1991 on the Lann Ma Gri also.

One of the most distinct place at the centre of town is U Ottama Park. U Ottama statue is at the middle of the park.
U Ottama was not only famous in Burma, but also all over the Asia. Craddock, Get Out! is one of most famous words of U Ottama. Imagine who dare to give such brave speeches to the governor at the colonial time.  U Ottama was sentenced long term jail because of such kind of brave speeches. He was also known as light of Asia. Biography of U Ottama, you can download over here.

I have visited Akyab Bazaar too.

The time I reached there was about 9:00 am. The front street of the bazaar was still crowded as usual.

The three-wheelers are playing important roles of transportation of Akyab.

Transport @ Akyab

It was labeled "Product of Tharkayta Industrial Zone, don't know how they produced? In the past, some of the so-called local products of industrial zones doesn't mean produced fully there. It should be better to say "assembled in so-and-so industrial zone".

Transport @ Akyab _ 1

I had reached back to airport of Akyab already. It was quite silent and I saw a few passengers only. It was Air Bagan we were going to take. Mostly passengers were foreigners and ticket's price also 30K more than normal domestic airline. But, there was only one trip of Air Bagan from Yangon to Akyab.

Airport Building_1

The airport building was undergoing renovation as I mentioned over here, so now you could notice that the roof of the building was completed renovation works already.

The plane was waiting down there for us to bring back to Rangoon.


Now I had to say "Bye Bye Crescent Land" again. Like what I said before, I really do not know when I will be back again.

Way Back to Akyab

It was quite late when the ship reached to Rathedaung. It was around 2:30 pm reached and left Rathedaung around 3:00 pm. It was not in good mode to take photo because it was too crowded on the ship and we knew that we would be reaching Akyab very late.

Rathedaung Jetty

Rathedaung Jetty was crowded as always and the ship also.

Rathedaung Jetty 1

As of late evening, there were a few snack sellers on the jetty and ship also going to depart the jetty soon.

Rathedaung Jetty 2

Good Bye Rathedaung. One song was flown through into my mind, that was "leaving on a jet plane" sung by John Denver.

~~ Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go~~

But, I am not on a jet plane, I am just on a crowded ship, I also really do not know "I'll be back again" there.

Rathedaung Jetty 3

The below one was the location of old jetty. Jetty was there in past few decades and moved to the present location since 3-4 years ago.
Goodbye Rathedaung

1000 Questions for Couples

There are hundreds of fun "getting to know you" questions but there are also important questions that most people don't even think of asking but are absolutely necessary if you want to have a happy relationship.

I've known of people who never told their mate about being arrested for molesting children, that they had DUI convictions, that they were sterile or had a STD. Admittedly, those are difficult questions to ask someone. But, if you are going through a book of questions, it is much easier to bring difficult subjects out into the open.

All of these questions will help you to really know the thoughts, feelings and desires of the one you are with. After going through these questions, you will really know the things your sweetheart is passionate about. You will know how you can give them much joy and happiness. You will also discover what irritates them and makes them blue.

Telecom Directory of Rathedaung

Rathedaung is a small town on northern part of Arakan state of the western part of Myanmar. Until last two, three years, telecommunication of Rathedaung was not good. But from last year, there were CDMA radio telephone network in Akyab was launched. Actually, it was meant for Akyab only, but local people do some modification to that one. They put it up high aerial antennae and used boaster to boost up weak signal reaching from Akyab to Rathedaung. So that, now there are a few numbers of telephones both on the town and the neighbor villages. And as of the effect of economy in the region, a lot of middle age people from the town were on abroad, so that those CDMA telephones can play as an important role of telecommunication in Rathedaung. So, now the one I uploaded here is the telephone directory for Rathedaung. As of there will be changes in owners and other factors, the numbers will be updated until end of previous February. Anyway, it's worthy if it can provide a piece of info who needed to contact someone in Rathedaung.

Click on the yellow pages icon to see larger view of directory.

Thanks to U Kyaw Hla Tun who is compiling all those numbers on his whiteboard in his shop. I cannot post this unless he gave me a chance to take photo of his compiled list.
