Trip to Ngwe Saung Beach for Myanmar Artistes organized by Htoo Foundation

trip_ngwe_saung01All of us human beings are travelling through time as we busy ourselves with daily chores. In our daily struggle for survival we usually find ourselves physically stressed out while the jamming urban environment coupled with the helter -skelter city life harassed us psychologically. Making matters worse especially for the elderly is the sweltering urban heat that inflicts a torturous physical and mental anguish on them.

Although we knew that a trip to a beach is supportive to our health and could be an escape from the burning urban surrounding, expenses of travelling, accommodation and food are, unfortunately, hurdles to indulging ourselves on such a trip. Taking such a trip can be far more problematic for the elderly. A retreat to a quiet surrounding such as a beach and a session of meditation there would refresh the mind and rejuvenate the body of those of advanced years. The benefits would be far greater if the trip is taken by those sharing the same talent and natural flair.


trip_ngwe_saung02To fulfill the aspiration of elderly musicians to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and ease their mental stress, U Tay Za, Chairman of Htoo Group of Companies and Htoo Foundation, sponsored a trip for them to Ngwe Saung Beach. The Group, coprising over twenty members, includes such classic musicians as U Bogalay Tint Aung, U Min Naung, U Maung Maung Gyi, U Tin Hlaing, U Myo Myint Lay, U Than Myat Soe, U Kaytu Win Htut, Daw Tin Tin Mya, Daw Myint Myint Khin, Daw Htar, Daw Cho Pyone and Daw Khin Khin Nyunt Than. Road transport from Yangon to Ngwe Saung, and accommodation and meals were provided at Htoo Group of Companies 'Aureum Palace Hotel and Myanmar Treasure Hotels.

He later on presented a short play. He remarked that he had been to Ngwe Saung for the first time at the age of 19, and this second visit at age 92 has been so pleasant and relaxing that it rejuvenated him into 19-year old boy. The local audience of all ages expressed their thanks for organizing the show free of charge and voiced their gratification of having seen and heard their favorite classic artistes performing live in their village.


trip_ngwe_saung05As Htoo Foundation has been contributing toward the benefit of various ethnic groups within the country regardless of race or religion, this trip is yet another virtuous activity organized by Htoo Foundation with the purpose of refreshing the mind and rejuvenating the body of elderly citizens of Myanmar.
