Saya’s Letter

Dear Allen & Ko San Hla Aung,

Long time no see!

Since I retired in 1993, I have been doing odd jobs. I was a mechanical and electrical supervisor for about 6 months at the FMI shopping center constructing job. Then after the construction phase, I retired, doing nothing, except to drive my youngest daughter to various tuition places.

For the last two years, I worked part-time again, 3 times a week, from 11:00 a.m to 5 p.m., as a consultant for the maintenance of mechanical and electrical works, as my youngest daughter finished her matriculation classes.

Since last month, I have another part-time jobs as consultant to a UPS selling company, working on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I am now in Singapore for a week, at the Liebert UPS (USA based Ohio Co.) Co., for servicing and repair of UPSs and am going back [on Tuesday] with one of the company men.

Since both my jobs are part-time jobs, and I am on company’s expense here, I do not have any leave [vacation] privileges, etc. and I am sorry I can’t afford to go to USA.

My eldest daughter and my second daughter are now medical doctors. My youngest is now reading for her first year medical course. I am still living in the same old house near the Inya Lake.
I hope both of you are healthy as I am now a health buff and tried to stay in health but at this age nobody can say what will happen as I noticed, looking up obituaries of people around my age in the newspaper and see the names of old friends.

Yours,
—- auld lang syne———–
Sein Win
