Saya-Kadaw-Pwe (2005)

Hello Friends,

Most of you are aware of the Saya-Kataw-Pwe of our classmates which will be held at Yangon on Feb 12. 2005. Many of you have already sent contributions. This letter is to inform the friends who are abroad and not aware of the developments.

I tried to stay at a distance after encountering some disagreements from earlier attempts at fund raising. I understand there are many different opinions about this and all are wonderful ideas, except I was not able to bring together to reach some consensus.

At this point, all I wish is to go back there and kataw them myself but I will not be able to make it. I am sure many of you will feel the same way. Those few who can go back, I want to let you know how much I envy you. Even if you can not go back, please try to make a contribution. Some of our teachers are still in service. Some have retired. Some are quite well off. Some not so. These Ahluu gifts may not be much for many of us, but could be quite a sum over there.

I hope all of us (who happen to open and read this letter) can pitch in for this occasion.There is no fixed amount for this. We all know how much we appreciate their Pyin-Nyar they gave it to us. This is our chance to give back a token of appreciation to them. If you have not made contributions please try to do so (in one week). If you know someone who do not have an email or do not really read them, please share this with him or her.

[For friends who want to have receipts, I would like to say that it is in the plans. For friends who wants to be listed as contributers, I can assure that Kyi Maung will be happy to do so. For those who do not want to be listed, he will respect your wish too. Just don't do anything because you might not want your name in some list. I wish some one can guarantee these things but they are all at different places and to keep some communications with them is just not easy. So, at least I want to say that I have no control over these issues. Please don't shoot the messenger.]

For friends in US, San San Htay has been the contact person for donations in the east coast. San San is the one in Los Angeles area. I do not know of anyone else organizing this. If you wish to contribute towards gifts to our teachers, please mail your checks to:

San San Wong
1008 S. Vega St.
Alhambra CA 91801
626 284 8017

(please also make your checks payable to "Nwe Linn Htet".)

Our organizers in Yangon will appreciate to know how much contributions they have to distribute in advance, so please mail your checks within a week if you can.

For friends in other countries, please contact your friends in your area or contact Aye Aye Myint, Khine Maung Htwe or Tint Tint Kyi in Yangon for contributions or plans.

Aye Aye Myint is asking your family photos to be included in the new class directory. Please send her your (family) photos ASAP. Please be kind to her and make your photo files manageable by making them smaller. (Takes a long time to download 3mb photo).

Have a happy and prosperous New Year and Best wishes to you all.
