Although Maung Maung Zaw Latt is at the height of his success, he still harbors an elusive ambition—to produce religious Buddhist songs.

 

“When Htoo Ein Thin was alive, we friends always talked about composing religious songs for Buddhism’s praises. We gave each other assignments, such as ‘you do this chapter of the Buddha’s life, you do that of the renunciation and I will do the enlightenment part’, and so on. But we couldn’t complete it because it was such an ambitious project.”

Thet Mon Myint

 

Thet Mon MyintThet Mon Myint’s pretty face and trim figure adorn countless calendars and posters in today’s Burma. She also features in a music VCD that is enjoying eye-popping popularity.

 

The 22-year-old is a shooting star in “Burma’s entertainment sky,” according to movie director Maung Myo Min.

 

Born and raised in Chin State, Thet Mon Myint moved to Rangoon a few years ago after graduating from high school and is now a second-year economics student.

 

After arriving in the capital, she gave up her given Chin name, Zung Cer Mawi, to become Thet Mon Myint.

 

“When I speak Burmese, I have a difficult time adjusting my Chin accent,” Thet Mon Myint told The Irrawaddy.
