My notes on my Myanmar- Bagan and Inle lake

Travelled from Manila to Yangon (Singapore Airlines $200 roundtrip) then Yangon to Bagan. 
Bought an MPT sim card with 1G data. 7,000 kyat for the sim $3 for the load.
Took a Yangon airport taxi to bus station only 5000 kyat. Don't take the taxi drivers out side, they are over priced.
Yangon to Bagan by JJ express bus. 1x1x1 seater ($20.99)The bus ride was long but bearable. Comfortable seats and the bus had a toilet.  It was cold so bring a jacket and a bonnet. The bus company provided a blanket, snacks, water and a neck pillow.
- Bagan taxi to hotel 8T kyat to Shwe Na Di Guest House ( private room with bathroom $27) double occupancy. loved it. Breakfast was filling. 

2. In Bagan

1st day I went around Horse cart $20. 10 pagodas 
Lunch 4T kyat set meal of friend fish, chicken curry, mutton curry, pork curry vegetables. Watermelon
- beware i was dupped to buy a souvenir for  $20, oh well. 

Great breakfast at the hotel. Watermelon, plantain bananas,  coffee, toast with jam and samosas.
Lunch next door for 1000 kyat noodles soup, very good. Small serving perfect for me.
sunset river bike ride with Grashopper. The ride was moderately difficult for me because of the muddy roads. The guide was helpful very informative.

Had dinner with thai ladies on vacation. Salad and beer for 3T kyat.
Took the bus to inle. Hard to sleep.. 

Taking the bus to Inle Lake. Bus searing is 1x1x1. The best seating for long bus rides. 

3. INLE Lake.
3rd day checked inn at Sweet Inn at 430am. They let me check in early with no extra charge. Also they offered free breakfast. The breakfast opened 7am. I had the traditional breakfast sticky noodle soup. It was new to me, tasted good. This breakfast comes with a pot of coffee and fruits.

15000 or $13 solo for the inle river tour. Silver smith, market, monastery,  long neck women, burmese cat breeding propagation.
I couldn't really look at the long neck women because i have neck problems.. so looking at them makes my neck hurt.

Luis L. Pantoja Jr. THD

I went to a memorial service for Pasto Luis Pantoja a commemorative Prayer meeting hosted by GCF-Peel. It was a touching event for I only met Pastor Luis once here in Canada during a church picnic last month. Its a pity I did not get to talk to him.

In the prayer meeting I heard so many funny, meaningful stories about this great man. A man greatly loved and for he loved much.

Epitaph for his cremated remains: "A handful of ashes now vaulted in this corner, with nothing to boast but grace from his maker"

I happen to read his Limericks..

Limericks on my life

Limericks are short verses generally but not always funny. Here are some about my career

Once on fire, in a suit and tie
By the hand of God and the will of man

Now he's fired, in sackcloth retired
By the hand of man and the will of God

The Lord has given, He has taken away
I tread the path, He leads the way

Flip the new page, blank with no stain
God in my old ag…
