A Guide to Practical Scaffolding

Within this May, Mgluaye got a chance to attend Scaffolding Erector Course at BCA. It will take all together 9 sections of 3 hours course at the evening and one 4.5 hrs section of test. There are three sections of theory and six sections of practical courses. Theory is not that bad, however practical session is a bit tiring. The course will be completed by 9th of June only.

All the scaffolding techniques that have been taught at training are metal scaffolding. I got a sense of remembrance of our bamboo scaffolding used all over our country. Bamboo scaffolding is essential for renovation of the religious building like pagoda and dagobas' buildings in Myanmar. And, it is so special because you can construct irregular shaped scaffolds aligning to curve or rounded structured building. Our people are so skillful to use bamboos and coir ropes. Rope made of coir also one of the essential material that used in bamboo scaffold erection.

However, there is only one thing we needed to add in our traditional scaffolding systems is personal protective equipments, usually called PPE. If PPE systems added onto our traditional scaffolding erection systems, it will become a perfect system.

As far as studied on course, I found out that the scaffold will be one of the good items to use while we are constructing the vandals on our annual water festivals. I hoped it will be more cost effective and less cost than using wood as of you can use it repeatedly, and if there are metal scaffold suppliers who can provide this service for these events. I think that will be a pieces of idea to consider to do business as metal scaffold supplier in our festive events.

MMCurrency : The First iPhone Application For Myanmar Currency Exchange Rates

On Mgluaye's Pages, a few percentage of the visitors are coming here to see the daily exchange rates between Singapore Dollars and Myanmar Kyats. For usual visitors , it will be unnecessary to tell you that every month also the currency review of exchange rates are posted first week of subsequent month. I knew that it is somehow useful for you to know that what's the trends of Myanmar Currency vs Singapore Currency, especially for those who came here and work in Singapore. And again, Singapore is being the most easiest junction points for other countries from all over the world to send money back to home. This is also one of the reasons that we needed to know daily exchange rates for our friends all over the world.

Now, there is one more services that I would like to provide for you. If you are one of the iPhone users like me, you would be able to view exchange rates on your iPhone. MMCurrency is the first of the first web application for iPhone users showing Myanmar Currency exchange rates. Actually, it is a by-product of the studying to be able to develop iPhone app for me. It is just a simple web application that will show you daily updates of Myanmar currency exchange rates.

Steps to Add MMCurrency on iPhone
Now, it is only for exchange rates for between Singapore Dollar and Myanmar Currency. I will be updating it into more complete application by adding in more features in near future as well.

Stay tuned and keep in touch.

For adding MMCurrency to your iPhone, please follow these steps:

Open Safari browser on your iPhone, then go to on your Safari web browser on your iPhone. MMCurrency will be loading up. To be able to view currency exchange rates, click on "Rates" button on top, left corner. To be able to add it on home screen, you need to click "Add to home screen" button.

Every time you want to know Myanmar Currency exchange rates, you may need to click the "MMCurrency" icon on your iPhone screen.

That's it.

I hope it should be helpful for those iPhone users. Welcome your feedback and advice if there is any.

Thank you
