A Myanmar Cosmetic

“Thanakkha”, the Myanmar traditional cosmetic, is available only in our country and cannot be found in any other countries. For foreigners visiting Myanmar, they will first recognize the lovely faces of Myanmar girls with yellow strips on their cheeks. That is Myanma traditional Thanakkha.
Thanakkha is the natural cosmetic and it is very essential for Myanmar ladies. In Myanmar, from kids to grandparents, they apply Thanakkha. Thanakkha is the symbol of Myanmar ladies. In the morning, Myanmar ladies wash their faces and they apply Thanakkha. And they are satisfied.
Thanakkha is used not only for foundation but also for powder. Moreover, they applied daily because it prevents sunlight, skin getting rough for only face and prevents damaging of skin. The fragrance of Thanakkha is very sweet-smelling and soothing constantly. The cream of Thanakkha is bitter and it gives a cool feeling when putting one. So tourists, who visited Myanmar, studied Myanma Thanakkha interestedly. Some of students put on Thanakkha while studying their lessons at night because of its cool effect.
The botanical name of Thanakkha tree is Limonia Acidissma. It grows mostly in the middle and the arid zone of Myanmar. It is hard and it likes dry soil. The colour and fragrance of Thanakkha is gradually different from the place it grows and condition of the soil. Thanakkha tree has two types, the male plant and female plant and the quality of the male plant is better and it is more expensive. “ShinMaDaung” Thanakkha produced from Shwe Bo region is most costly and likely. Thanakkha tree lasts about 3 to 10 years. The girth of three years old Thanakkha is 2 inches. The marketable Thanakkha term is 35 years old. That is why Myanmar Thanakkha is rare and precious.
You have to clean the Thanakkha piece first. Then grind it on, round and smooth surface 3 legged of flat rock called ‘kyaykpyin’ (ေက်ာက္ျပင္). When grinding, you have to put a little amount of water. In doing so, you can exercise for arms. Some young ladies and children apply Thanakkha, on the cheek in faces chapes like cycle, square, leave and toys. That is termed ‘ba-gwet’. You can see would-be novice with ‘ba-gwet’(ပးကြက္). in Myanmar novitiation ceremony.
Myanmar Thanakkha can be used not only as cosmetic but also as traditional medicine. You can apply Thanakkha with salt for itching of the skin. The advantage of Thanakkha to feed the children is because it’s cool the body. Hence, Myanma Thanakkha is a kind of plant which is very useful.
At present, industrial works and technologies are developing in Myanmar. They invent ready made Thanakkha which needs not to be grinded. Moreover, they produce Thanakkha liquid, Thanakkha powder in the market oriented economic system.
Myanmar is flourishing with Sasana and culture. On special religious days, Myanmars pay respect to older persons with Thanakkha joss stick.
In conclusion, Myanmar Thanakkha is also very precious and it is the pride of Myanmar people. Myanmar ladies and Myanmar Thanakkha can not be divided. We are proudly present our Myanmar Thanakkha amongst various kinds of make - up of other countries.

My Mist

Never has mist
hung thick and dull
over our town

over the pagodas
over the themples
over TV aerials
over the roofs of houses
over the tops of trees
and finally

on to the thongs of my flip-flops
on the pavement
there is mist

The sounds of bells
get frozen in the mist

I am still enjoying the mist
where am I?

(from English for all magazine)

To avoid all evil,
to cultivate good,
and to cleans one's mind
this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

မေကာင္းမႈဟူသမွ်ကို မျပဳရာ၊၊
ကုသိုလ္ေကာင္းမႈႏွင့္ ျပည့္စံုေစရာ၏။။
မိမိ၏စိတ္ကို ျဖဴစင္ေစရာ၏။
þသည္ကား ဘုရားရွင္တို႔၏ အဆံုးအမေပတည္း။

Seek no intimacy
with the beloved
and also not with the unloved,
for not to see the beloved
and to see the unloved,
both are painful.

ခ်စ္ေသာသူတို႔ႏွင့္လည္း ေရာေထြးယွက္တင္ မျပဳရာ။
မုန္းေသာသူတို႔ႏွင့္လည္း ဘယ္အခါမွ ေရာေထြးယွက္တင္ မျပဳရာ။
ခ်စ္ခင္ေသာသူတို႔ကို မျမင္ရျခင္းသည္ ဆင္းရဲ၏။
မုန္းေသာသူတို႔ကို ျမင္ရျခင္းသည္လည္း ဆင္းရဲ၏။
