Last week we took part in the Food & Hotel Myanmar expo in Yangon, a huge event with hundreds of chefs vying to be the best. The hotels, restaurants and resorts of Myanmar were gathered in the huge venue to soak up the inspiration…

Tea leaves = fertiliser

  (ေအာက္မွာျမန္မာလိုပါေသးတယ္ေနာ္) Here’s an inspiring story. On a spare corner of a community wasteland (=dump, basically) in Mandalay this guy is drying used tea leaves. He collects them from local tea shops on a regular basis and brings them here to dry. Then he…
