Dear Myanmar Patriots, Expatriates, Compatriots, and Friends,

Reuters photo correspondent Edgar Su is a very clever , talented one, I should say .By publishing the photo of the President of Union of Myanmar’s , in waiting room of S’gapore Prime minister Lee Hsien Loong ,on 30 January, all on his own, his feet could not even touch the floor properly, with a dim face.
This photo said a lot of things. It is worth more than a million words. It shows how Sinmgapore is treating Myanmars. Edgar Su’s candid Camera works very well.
But the question is, how is Myanmar the President of Rep of the Union of Myanmar Thein Sein been treated or the people of Myanmar through the President being treated by the S’gapore, and it’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
Singapore is an Island, or a city state. It has its own history everybody knows.
Shall we overlook it as, nothing, nothing at all or negligible?
I don’t believe there is anything in politic, which is nothing, nothing at all, or negligible.
Three days visit to S’gapore by the President of Republic of the Union of Myanmar .How successful was that visit in political, economic, and social aspect. We don’t know but Singapore said it will help Myanmar. Honesty or sincerity is not a question here, because S’gapore to help Myanm ar will be productive bilateral benefits, especially for Myanmar. That is for sure.
There are considerable numbers of Myanmars working in Singapore. In economic terms or political terms these Myanmar are helping to build S’gapore economy to grow. In return they have their jobs.
If these Myanmars have no talent, no qualification, no trade and skills, Singapore won’t be taken them in.
The question of who is exploiting who, may be harsh words, instead who is helping who, may be better.
The word, ‘betrayal', may be a big word, sincerity, and honesty are the same word.
