Lunch Gathering!I have to thank you all , the RIT Alumni from near and far alike, for visiting my home to pay me respect and above all to have nice chats and also to enjoy the delicious lunch at New Seafood Palace. I am so glad to see you all as fit and healthy as can be at the age between 70 and 80. Even I am 88 years old I felt as young as you guys to have this mini-gathering. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Let”s keep up this noble tradition not only in Myanmar but also abroad. With Metta. Min Wun
