Dear Blog,

I didn’t post new things for a long time. During these days, I have gone through many things.

1. I compensated five millions to Ministry for my 5 years study in India and resigned from University.

2. I worked with Dr. Anna Zongollowicz for three research projects

      Conducting of Pre-Implementation Knowledge, Attitude and Practice (KAP) on Child Labour
      Study on Child Labourโ€™s Rapid Assessment in an Industrial Zone in Yangon
      Impact of Migration on Children on Myanmar”

Each project duration was short. I have been learning the new experiences (interview, workshop). I have good opportunity to meet noble monks, nuns, organizations and people who are working for welfare of children.

3. I am learning sewing on pants at School of Home Science, Department of Social Welfare http://www.dsw.gov.mm/en/welfare-category/women-welfare-services. I made trousers for Mom and Bro.

This is a vocational learning center for ladies and gents (Rare). If one looks at the Gate of this school, it seems so silent. However, there are different sizes and ages of ladies/girls actively learning the courses. The courses offering are knitting, sewing for different subjects(blouses, trousers, coats), food and sweet of Chinese, Myanmar, Korean (KOICA), flower arrangements, embroidery, etc. Now, tThe courses are inexpensive and open for any enthusiastic person. My mom is also learning sewing for blouse. I LOVE TO LEARN. Now, I find a place to learn many things.

I wish the long lasting of this kind of schools.

And I heard that a person can join as teacher to this school after learning 6 subjects.

4. I made a beautiful crochet coat for Sis.

5. I am going to learn again at University of Economics!
I have told you, I love learning! ๐Ÿ™‚

6. I have been contributing (for Myanmar(Burmese) ) for Little Prince Multilingual Project. It is machine translation project for the languages (not limited) Myanmar(Burmese), Croatian, English, French, Hindi, Indonรฉsian, Khmer, Lao, Thai and Vietnamese . The project is lead by Dr. Vincent Berment.
Kindly leave a message if you are interested. You are warmly invited!!!


7. Most important, I am searching a job !!!

Crochet -3 September 3, 2013

I learned knitting on my grade-8 (Middle School) on 1988. That time, all over Myanmar was in chaos and crisis. Beause of that, universities and schools across Myanmar were shut down almost a year.

My very first crochet teacher might be my close friend, KKL. She had a crochet hook and some yards of yarn. She gave a few yards of yarn and borrowed the hook for some time. Our houses were away 10 mins walking distance. So we met 2-3 times a day for some reasons (playing or chatting). I learnt how to make chain and double crochet from her. I did double crochet til the end of yarn. Then pull it back to string and started again.

Seeing my craziness in crochet, my mom sent me to learn at Crochet expert near our house. It took 3 months to learn differnt designs of shawl, blouse, vest, flowers pattern, etc. That time, most of the girls around our age knew how to crochet at least.

Because of learning crochet, that time, I helped some earning to family. My mom learned from me willingly. She is the most excellent student who learn crochet from me and even better than me. We made the shawls together and my dad sold our finished products to his friends’ wife ๐Ÿ˜€ . That was running til our school reopens and I stop doing seriously. But Mom continued making blouse, vest, and shawls. I just help mom some parts or finishing. She even visited some places for teaching crochet to others.

However, after 2-3 year later (at my 10th grade), my mom got asthma because of doing crochet. The doctor said the unseen small piece of yarn /wool , or dye-used in them might cause her lungs problem. So the doctor adviced her stop doing crochet.

As at the beginning of this year, I learnt knitting from a young teacher at our work. That invokes again the craziness in me like at my young age. But this time is not for earning but for pleasure and relaxing.

My sis-in-law is very proud of doing handmade. That urges me to take the snapshots of the crochet made by Mom and me. My sis knew how to do crochet. But she never makes one and she is boring to do. She knew sewing but I am not. However, sis is very good at wearing whatever we made. ๐Ÿ˜›

All are made by me while learning. My sis used to wear them.

Grandpa (My mom’s father ) is nearly 90 years old but he is still active, strong will to live. (for me, frankly enough, sometimes get boring to live. I have to keep myself busy not to come this kind of attitude.) Grandparents from dad’s side were expeired since dad’s young age.

Grandpa likes me being teacher. Instead of calling me Grandchild, sometimes he called me teacher.
For me, he is more lovely than Grandma. He loves and treats fair to all his grandchildren. But I think Grandma loves one of my cousin most as he(my cousin) brought up on her hand. Grandpa likes the fried egg I made. And he also listens to my words ๐Ÿ˜€ .

I went along with Mom’s sudden visit to Grandparents. When I received the call from Dad and knew that Mom’s visit to them, I have nothing onhand to give for Grandpa. Fortunately, it was just the beginning of the month (That means I still have money:D ),and I was at downtown to buy yarn. So I bought some delicioucy for Granparents.

I decided to knit for him to express my love. I started this muffler at the bus terminal waiting to depart my Grandparent’s place.

When we were young, it was very difficult to go to the Grandparent’s place. We have to use by all means of communications (on foot, on bus, on train, on ship, and on trishaw …) It was really tired to reach there. Since 8 years ago, it is not much trouble like before. Taking high-way bus can reach before grandparents’ house. But the bus was still terrible and small seat.

Now air conditioned buses are available and comfortable to travel there. However, there is no electricity at their place yet. So no distrubance like TV channels. I just sit, knit and knit all day long before the light goes. Mom had not decided which date we would go back home. So I just focused on knitting to finish it. Not boring. Because our relatives around Grandparents’ place visit us. As it was rainy season, many of them stopped their job for a while. We were fun with the little monkey.

This muffler was finished within two days and completed on 10 June 2013.

These days, I usually have my lunch at University Canteen. No need to spend time for preparing food.

Everyday, I get up around 6:00 am.
Then I change water for the flower pot offered at Buddha. Then I take bath.
After that I recite 11 sutta (depend on how much time is left) (I usually do saying prayer only on weekdays. :))

Then I have to catch the ferry bus at 7:30 am.

If I still have the time, I knit before going to the ferry bus.
However, in the weekend and holidays, I gave more time for knitting.

I have finished knitting muffler for Mom on 31-August 2013. The yarn has some sparkling string. Mom wants to use this mufflerscarf when she donates.

The reddish brown color is for Dad. It is till on going. He wants to use when he joins mediation center. I hope it will be useful in the winter. It can keep his neck warm.
