This is a great light dessert served after a heavy meal. Enjoy :)) Oh....WAIT!!!!! End of the sweet light dessert recipe..........BUT........I still have part 2 of my this post which is an enduring love story!!!!!!!!!!
I was thinking of introducing one of Myanmar legends 'Kinnara' (a favourite Myanmar symbol of enduring love) to my non-burmese readers. Well, after searching and browsing through some of the Burmese websites, i came across this particular website which had posted about the various Kinnara stories in detail. I must admit that some of these informations that were posted on Myanmar legends (click to visit and read about Kinnara stories), i was reading them for my very first time too. So this is one great thing about blogging. In order to share our own culture with others through our blogs, we ourselves need to explore and discover our own culture. an excellent way to explore and share :)))
