    He served as Associate Editor of “Hlyat Sit Sar Saung” published by RIT Electrical Engineering Association.
  • Daw Than Yi (EP70) writes with the pen name “Maubin Ma Shwe Than”.
    During her younger days, a translation of her short story was published in Working People’s Daily and received an honorarium of 50 Kyats.
    She also served as Association Editor of “Hlyat Sit Sar Saung”.
  • It is highly probable that their shared love of literature led them to become life long partners.
    Saya U Moe Aung (Tekkatho Moe War) was Chief Editor of the Sar Saung and mentor of the love birds.
  • After retirement, Dr. Sann Oo and Daw Than Yi established “East and West Parami Hospital.”
    They showed us around the hospital, and later took out for a Rakhine Lunch.
  • They published several books mostly for the love of Sar Pay and not necessarily for financial gains.
  • Their first publication was a reprint of the Burmese sci-fi (science fiction) by Journal Kyaw Tint Swe.
  • Another publication was by William, their grandson (then about 10 years old).
