Web hosting for Myanmar

There are very few articles written about web hosting in Myanmar language. If there is any article explaining about web hosting in Myanmar, they are not well written and not well explained. In this article and the articles that follow, I will try to explain, in simple terms, the basics of web hosting for Myanmar people. Most IT professionals in Myanmar are quite good at writing programs or basic html web pages, but most of them have very little or few experience in web hosting. Most IT training schools and programs in Myanmar that teach web site creation focus their teaching in high level html and programming languages rather than easy development of web sites. I am not an IT professional but I successfully run a number of websites using the Content Management Systems (CMS). They are easy to set up, easy to develop and easy to run and modify. You don’t even need to know any html or php or any programming to run a website (but knowing them helps you). I will also explain how to choose your webhost, what are you look for in your web host and what are the limitations imposed by your webhosts (sometimes, hidden in complicated “term of use”). After all these articles, you will be able to set up and run your own website successfully in a few minutes. [.....]  read more

What am I doing recently

Well, I was a bit busy recently. I even find it difficult to update my blogs regularly. To summerize my activity during these days, the following is a brief.

  • Just coming back from Chaing Mai. Stayed in a very nice hotel for four nights (with the expense of WHO and CDC). Attending a training conducted by WHO. Hope I did not get H1N1.
  • My sister and my father are visiting me in Thailand. I was busy sending them to all the places in Bangkok (either shopping centers or restaurants). My sis got fever while she was in Thailand, and went back to Singapore with fever. She was really scared that she got H1N1 (not because she is afraid of that swine flu, but afraid of being quarantined). I gave her a few tablets of paracetamol to take while on the plane. Fortunately, she passed the Singapore immigration and health check undetected. Now, Singapore has at least one unreported H1N1.
  • Back to a small town in Thailand. Back to rat race.
  • Bought a new Olympus binocular. Hope it will be very useful next time I visited Myanmar (Burma) especially near Kandawgyi Park and Inya Lake.
  • Bought a new Nokia Music Express 5800. Bought is just because it was cool, but found it very useful as I can now check my gmail, access the GPS map and see my blog statistics on the go.
  • Bought a new Acer Netbook. Very small, very light, but the battery last incredible 6 hours! Now, I bring it everywhere I go.
  • Set up a broad band internet at home (another house). They said broadband, but it seems like running at the same speed as the internet cafes in Myanmar. Sometimes very slow. It is from TT&T. Don’t use it if you can.
  • I am now planning to buy a new video camera (camcorder). Like the Cannon camcorder with SD card.

    Getting married to a Myanmar (Burmese) guy

    Jude Williams has asked me information on getting married to a Burmese man. Apparently, she found it difficult to find information on getting married to a Burmese. There are no information available on marriage to a Burmese (guy or girl). I think it is time to give you some information on this issue for those Burmese guys and girls who found difficulty getting married to a foreigner, and those foreign men and ladies want to get married to a Burmese. [.....]  read more

    A long time of absence – My sincere apology

    It has been a long time since I last updated this blog. To admit the truth, I was quite busy recently. My work consumes most of my energy, and what is left of my energy is consumed by editing articles on Myanmar Today. Believe me. Editing articles written in non-standard English is not a preasurable experience. I admit that I am not a very good English writer, but editing something into a readable article is not alwasy easy. Many a times, I ended up rewriting the whole article. Thankfully, all of the contributors to Myanmar Today are my friends so they are more than happy for my editing effort. (They can get away  with just the outlines of the article and let the editor do the hard work of writing it into a readable one). [.....]  read more

    Three years in Chin Hills

    I first arrived to Chin State on one cold November evening in 2004. I was taking a jeep, sitting in the back seat, depressed. The road to Mindat from Pakokku was the worst road I have ever traveled in my life. A worn out paved road with so many holes and bumps, and a lot of dirsts. And it took half a day to traveled that 96 miles from Pakokku to Mindat. It is like a nightmare come true to me. [.....]  read more
