In honor of U Than Lwin

Honor and remember,- 54 years History of strong Myanmar Chefs,-  during the funeral of U Than Lwin @ Robin Guy on the 8.8.2018 at Yangon s Christian Cemetery we met with many senior chefs of the old Burmese Days at the Inya Lake Hotel worked there since 1962…….

We should think to have a Dinner together with these senior gentlemen of our all profession,- may of their son and grand son also became chefs,— lets see how we get together this year,— possible at a part of the 2018 International Chefs day party after educational & charity events … Also see 1994 Tourism Myanmar first generation Ko Myint Maw and Ma Khin Khet Khet Khaing both from the early days of Kandawgyi Palace Hotel … 

There are many great hidden stories with these gentlemen as the famous : “… first is always for Raj … “ the chef of Gen Ne Win, which had to taste everything always first and ensure he is still alive when the General would eat the food served….. ..

Or when U Ne Win came over from his house at the lake and punched the drummer of a Rock n Roll Band as he did not like to hear this music and the drummer did not notice Ne Win s arrival…. – The Party was sure over after….all at Inya Lake Hotel – or the Famous Inya Lake Bar …. stories and places for a book to write and a movie to shoot..
