Minda and I joined the trip to visit to Myanmar (緬甸) organized by Candy’s Travel Limited from 21st to 25th Nov 2018. The travel agency (Carmon Mok) is our friend and we always asked her for help to arrange different trip in China. The last day of Myanmar trip is free agenda. So that I arranged to visit the University of Yangon and started at 8:00am. Aaron, Pat, Minda and I took a group photo in front of the university.
We saw many local people worn traditional dress around the university. We met a happy family and they took a jumping photo in front of the university hall (Convocation Hall).
Then they took a photo with us.
The guy explained that they were Karen people (克倫族) and worn their traditional dress to celebrate with their family member for the graduation today.
The university vision was posted in the wall of the university hall. Their vision is “To create an education system that can generate a learning society capable of facing the challenges of the Knowledge Age”.
Today is the university graduation ceremony and all professors and graduates were inside the Convocation Hall.
Graduate doll, flower and graduate photo service were provided.
Before reach the university, we passed the Hlaing Campus.
After visited the university, we went back to Hotel “Grand Mercure”. Based on Grab, the cost is about $4100~$4500 Kyat one way. Return to Hotel needed $10,000 Kyat. (~$50 RMB)
During back to hotel, we passed the house of Aung San General
After return to hotel before 10:00am, we met Hong Kong Snooker Queen – Ms. Ng On-yee (吳安儀). We took a photo for memory.
Carman also took a photo with her.
We were lucky because of IBSF World Billiard and Snooker Championship 2018 was held in here from 12-18 and 19-27 Nov 2018, respective.
We had also visited the venue of championship which located in the 8/F of the Hotel.
Hotels’ General Manager – Mr. Vinoth Kumar (威諾) is very nice and explained the hotel facilities to us. We took a photo for memory. He can speak in Cantonese.
There had 7 meeting rooms from 20 to 65 people and two ball rooms. Each ball room was up to 580 people each. I found that it was suitable for ANQ or other Quality conference if held in Mynamar.
At 10:30am, we went to the largest shopping mall in Yangon named “HAGL Myanmar Centre”. We had lunch in the Manhattan Fish Market.
The staff fired shrimp with cheese.
Left Myanmar and back to Hong Kong.
