In Dein Gyi village in Kalay was a place where Japanese army made a station during the war. Sunflowers are in full bloom in this season at the village.
The two old men from Pantha village in Tamu township had contact with Japanese Army during the world war. About thirty years ago, they used to be guides for the Japanese team that visited the region in search for remains of Japanese soldiers. I was the second Japanese person for them to see in thirty years after war. I would like to recommend this place to Japanese visitors as an interesting place to visit.

I came across people of screen shooting a commercial when I visited Kandawgyi Park the other day. The actress was Thet Mon Myint, a popular CM star. I think commercials are often made in the places like Kandawgyi Park because there are not many beautiful places in Yangon.
Three-wheelers are used to transport people in Tamu.
Special roadside stalls are opened in china town every year as Chinese Lunar New Year is drawing near. There are a lot of traffic jams near our office.
Kandawgyi Park has received a face lift. With a lot of more things to see, the park has become more pleasant. It is packed everyday with holiday makers-families, couples and children. Although the project has not finished, the park is a very pleasant place with mini-gardens and mini-waterfalls.
