Last week, I delivered a grocery order to a lady who lives near to Chippenham. In our conversation, it transpired that she was originally from Myanmar. She was excited about celebrating her country’s New Year holiday on 17th April. Her excitement was tinged with sadness due to the current global heath crisis. For the first time, she will not be able to surround herself with family. However, she intends to send out little home-made treats, especially to the children. I was happy to be supplying her with some of the ingredients for those treats.
So, today, I would like to wish her and all of my Myanmar followers a Happy Thingyan Festival and Myanmar New Year!
