Mini-gatherings

Some Classes have mini-gatherings.

The Class of 1965 and some from the Class of 1963 (e.g. Harry Kyaw and Dicky Taw) meet almost every month. During my visits to Yangon, Dr. Kyaw Min picked me up to attend their mini-gatherings. Ko Than Win took me to the soon offering (organized by Harry, Dicky and Atom) for Saya Uzin Beatson at a restaurant in the “Yin Pyin Daw”.

Donation Ceremony

Senior Old Paulians donated to some health workers (from DMR) working on COVID-19 projects (e.g. Swab Collection).

The photos were sent by Dr. Kyaw Min (Retired Deputy DG, DMR).

Ko Aung Myint (SPHS64) made educated guesses (e.g. U Nay Oke, Harry “R” Kyaw).

Ko Myint Toe texted me saying he was wearing a black coat in the second photo.

  1. Dear Ko Hla Min,
    Your website is a monumental achievement, and a testimonial to your dedication to help future generations to remember their legacy.
    Thank you for mentioning my name in your records.
    May I point out that in “Some Paulians from 1957 – 1965” in your June 11, 2020 posting, the 2nd position in the 1965 Matric exam results should be Maung Aye (the younger of the twins), and the 3rd should be Winston Sein Maung.
    I confirmed this with fellow classmate Edward Kyaw Din (Dr. Kyaw Din), whose aunt was the one who calculated the ILAs for ranking the college roll nos. I believe Yi Thway (also from our class) was in 4th position; he was roll no. 1 at MC(1).
    May God continue to bless you in your labor of love.
    Bernard Khaw
