The Secret to Attracting Money (Audio Book)

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:

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

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:

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

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

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.


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.
