On May 20, 2018, the BOD (Board of Directors) and EC (Executive Committee) members of NorCal RITAA (Northern California Rangoon Institute of Technology Alumni Association) threw a surprise party to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Saya U Myat Htoo (C68, Chair of BOD) and Daw Hnin Maung Maung (Ma Ku, “Nyima Lay”).

According to Saya U Myat Htoo, he was the youngest in his family and wanted a younger sibling (preferably a sister).

Saya found an innocent 9 year old neighbor (and family friend).

Ten years later, they tied the knot.
