I met two Paulians on March 16, 2018 at the gathering hosted by Dr. Zaw Lin (David Chee, younger brother of Maurice Chee).
Dr. Min Lwin (Maurice, SPHS64) spends time in the UK and Myanmar. He is visiting California. He is a cousin of U Win Maung (“Lake”) and Sayama Daw Khin Swe Aye. He stood 5th in the Matriculation of 1964 and was admitted to IM(2) as Roll Number Two (based on the ILA).
Dr. Aung Win (Lam Peng Chiong, SPHS64) is a retired Medical Doctor in Northern California. He was a few marks behind Dr. Cherry Hlaing and Dr. Lyn Aung Thet in the Matriculation of 1964. His ILA was perfect score and was admitted to IM(2) as Roll Number One (based on the ILA).
Dr. Winnie Tan (spouse of Dr. Aung Win) is a co-founder of the ConBro (Convent and Brother Schools), which meets in San Francisco. Dr. Daisy Saw and Mabel Sha are the other founder members.
I met Dr. Ruby (cousin of Dr. Cherry), who lives in Hong Kong and is visiting her sons in Northern California. She mentioned that Dr Cherry is in the East Coast to attend her daughter’s graduation.
Dr. Cherry Hlaing was admitted to IM(1) as Roll Number One (with a perfect ILA score). She was selected as Luyechun for Inlay Khaung Daing Camp in the summer of 1965.
Her grandfather (U Hoke Sein), her father (U Saw Hlaing) and her son and daughter also stood first in Burma. This is a record that is hard to be broken : four generations and five firsts.
Dr. Lyn Aung Thet had four distinctions, but his score for Burmese was not sufficient to get a perfect ILA score. He was an all-round athlete and led the IM(1) team in swimming and water polo. He is a good tennis and chess player. He was selected Lu Ye Chun in a subsequent year.
Dr. Cho Cho Tin is the other Matriculate in 1964 with four distinctions. She moved to the UK.
