Introduction Born in a Burmese jungle near Pyin-ma-nar while my parents were Communist guerrillas. I basically grew up in the Aung-San-Thuria-Hla-Thaung Cadet School of Burmese Army and I was once a boy soldier in the army for almost two years till I deserted in early 1974. I graduated from Rangoon Institute of Technology in 1980 and I was a tutor for one year in RIT Mechanical Engineering Department and an engineer for 3 years in Burma Irrigation. I then worked in Bangkok, Sydney, KL, Tokyo, and New York. I was a mechanic, production supervisor, and production manager till 1995 when I started my own business of importing prawn meat from Burma. That business failed and for last 15 years I had had my own little fund trading stocks, equity futures, and currencies. But now I am just a struggling semi-retired writer/blogger/day-trader waiting to meet my maker. Writing is my hobby and Burma naturally is my main interest.
