990 Spotlight On

What is your position with Khiri Travel and what are your responsibilities?

I was hired three months ago to be the administrator of our reservations system, responsible for the overall functionality of our back office online systems. My duties are to take care that all of our products and their prices are up-to-date. Furthermore, I explain how to use the system to new staff, or when there are special questions.

Why did you choose to work for this company?

Khiri Travel has a very good reputation all over Myanmar, especially with their recent sustainability initiative that I personally admire very much.

Which tourist attraction do you like the best in your country and why?

I like Dala which is south of Yangon. On Sundays I sometimes take the ferry to cross the Yangon River to Dala. Although these two places are only divided by a river, it is another world; it’s a real village at the edge of Myanmar’s biggest city. I enjoy the tranquility there.

What is the festival you like the most?

Thadingyut in October. It is also known as the festival of lights. I like that it creates a very nice setting at night when all the buildings are illuminated.

Please tell us a little bit about your personal life.

I am single, but I hope to find my sweetheart soon. After work I go to Kandawgyi Park to meet my friends. We play guitar and drink coffee. Maybe we eat some mohinga, my favorite childhood dish. It is a rice noodle fish soup, mostly eaten for breakfast. You can get it everywhere in Myanmar, but I like the Café SS on Yangon’s Saya San Road. They serve mohinga day and night.
