Alright, my blog has been outdated for months (*sorry for that) which is due to the hectic months of September. I did attend so many events and functions but my job does not permits me to take any photos (*I can’t do two jobs at one time). Also, I almost forgot the story about the events and functions that I have attended. So, rather than telling the wrong facts, I think its better not to tell at all.
Okay, currently I was in Yangon, Myanmar on official assignment. What can I tell you about this country, it has a lot to offer be it in the matter of businesses, tourisms etc. Many uniqueness you can find and see here in Yangon.
As for myself, soon after landed at Yangon International Airport via Singapore the airport does impressed me so well. The cleanliness, the cargo systems, immigration does not fit the story we’ve read in the international newspaper or the one what we have seen or heard on the international news cable.
Although the road traffic system is not as good as we did have back in Brunei (the drivers here are very daring), but the Burmese are very polite. I won’t touch on politics, but they are very good people here regardless of their race and religion.
Actually Yangon is the capital city the Republic of The Union of Myanmar. The population in Yangon itself was about 5 million (2010) out of 53.4 million population. With the total area of 677,000 square kilometres, Myanmar is the largest country in mainland Sotheast Asia.

Actually the road traffic system in Myanmar is meant for left-hand-drive but most cars are right-hand-drive. Hmmm...

This small book provided by Brunei Embassy is very helpful
Quick visit to Shwendagon Pagoda
This huge Shwendagon Pagoda is made up of a solid gold. The height is about 326 feet and the gold weight at 3 tonnes. This pagoda is 2,500 years old!
It took at least one hour for tourist to have a look around the pagoda
Soon after the visit, my favourite activities.
I'm not sure if we have this or not in Brunei. But I think we should have one, so good.
