Domestic Tourism In Myanmar Grows Faster Than Foreign Tourism

Published by:

Myanmar has recently been growing as a tourist destination in Asia, and, while there has been some slowing of the growth of tourism, the tourism economy of Myanmar remains strong. A recent revelation from the Myanmar Domestic Pilgrimages and Tour Operations Association, reveals how the tourism scene of the country remains strong, and why people are more likely to see locals stay in a hotel near Yangon international airport, rather than foreigners.

The DPTOA, was recently tasked with calculating the number of domestic travellers in Myanmar, due to the Ministry of Hotel and Tourism being unavailable to handle the issue, and crunched the numbers on the local tourist scene. According to the DPTOA, their calculations should be, at worst, 20% off the actual numbers.

In a statement made by U Myoe Gyi, Vice Chairman of the DPTOA, he said that his association crunched the numbers on the tourism scene in the country, and saw that the domestic tourism scene accounted for approximately 7.1M travellers in Myanmar, representing an increase of 1M from preceding years. He attributes this growth to the country’s recent political transition period which lasted from 2011 to 2012, which boosted domestic tourism numbers from 3.1M to this year’s value of 7.1M.

This growth rate, if it continues, is set to catch the international tourist scene of the country, which currently has a target of 7.5M visitors in 2020, as part of the tourism master plan of Myanmar’s Ministry of Hotel and Tourism. The international arrivals into the country, however, only total to about 2.9M visitors at 2016’s end, showing a notable difference between the domestic and international tourism scene.

He adds that the domestic tourism sector is in full swing at a slightly different timeframe than the foreign tourism sector, which runs from August to April.

According to U Myoe Gyi, domestic travellers now prefer staying at hotels, instead of the traditional monastery or guest house. He adds that this shift has little effect on the pilgrimage operators in the country, who do not see much competition in the hospitality buildings such as a hotel near Yangon international airport, due to both them and hotels benefitting from the increase in domestic traffic in the country.

He says that the number of pilgrims that travel throughout the country has been growing, with more and more domestic operators popping up, and more private arrangements being made in their wake.

Easy Ways To Clean Bathroom Basins

Published by:

It is typical to find bathroom basins in home, restaurants, hotels, offices and other establishments. They are highly functional and are easy to clean with less maintenance needs. Cleaning bathroom basins do not require harsh cleaning materials and other toxic solutions. As a matter of fact, you can maintain a basin with simple cleaning materials that you can find at home. Here are some materials that you will need:

  • Clean washcloth
  • Vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Sponge or scrub

Ways to clean bathroom basins

  • Remove all the items inside your vanity basin unitincluding those around the sink such as toiletries, soap dishes and other toilet materials and equipment.
  • Place the plug on the sink.
  • Sprinkle baking soda on the sink and around it. Place more baking soda on areas with grease marks, mildew and lime scale or areas where unwanted elements are building up.
  • Pour white vinegar on areas with dirt build-up. The mixture of baking soda and vinegar should sizzle.
  • Allow it sit for five minutes or more.
  • Use the sponge and slightly scrub the surface up to the centre of the basin. Put more attention on the drain and rim since it is where the concentration of grime and dirt is found.
  • Rinse the basin with tap water.
  • Scrub off any remaining dirt or grime with the same solutions.

Helpful cleaning tips:

  • Because cleaning and maintenance of bathroom basins do not involve toxic cleaning solutions, you can get your kids into helping you. If the basin is still high for them, you can still have them nearby and watch you clean instead.
  • You can also use the same solution for cleaning taps and your kitchen sink. Rinse the taps and drains with plenty of water because vinegar can lead to corrosion when left sitting on materials for too long especially on metal surface.
  • Avoid having contact with vinegar around your eyes as it would sting because of its acidity. Wash your hands thoroughly after cleaning the sink. Administer the kids who may be helping the cleaning process and keep them from touching sink surfaces while vinegar is still on.

Pet Cremation Business Wins Award

Published by:

Australia has been recently having troubles with the burial space in the country, which is predicted to prove inadequate sometime around the 2050s. As such, there has been a shift in how Australians handle the cold truth of death, as people seek out new ways to respectfully mourn their dead and bury what remains of the dearly departed, looking through funeral urns in Perth and other places, and sparing no expense regardless of whether or not the dearly departed is a relative, or a pet.

It is truly a sign of the times in Australia, when a pet cremation service has managed to win the country’s 2017 Australian Small Business Champion Awards for Pet Services. The family-ownedEdenhills Pet Cremation managed to snag the award this year, showing that the Australian populace are now becoming more and more open minded to alternative methods of honouring their dead.

In the past, pet cremation was not popular; practically unknown, as most pet owners preferred to dispose of their pets’ remains on their backyards or on any of their property space. But as space in the country for burials shrinks, and as more Australians are now moving into apartments, pet burial is becoming less and less practical. The pet cremation industry was born from the need and demand to provide a proper way to dispose of the deceased companion animals whilst acknowledging the issues of space in the country. The industry has only been growing and evolving, becoming more professional as time passes; it might not be long until pet funeral urns in Perth become widespread.

Lance Stringer, owner of Edenhills Pet Cremations, made a statement, saying that he was glad that their team had been given the proper recognition in contributing to Edenhills’s development as a leader and hotspot in the pet industry. He credits his team and his vet staff for the success the business has experienced.

He adds that he has spoken to many practice managers, animal nurses and vets over the years, doing what he can to learn about the whole process, including the minor details, since he believes that, like cremating a human being, it’s important to take note of the little things.

Edenhills is one of the few pet crematoriums in Australia that provides entire horse cremation. The business also procured a new, M6 cremator, which allows for the simultaneous cremation of six individual pets.

Farmer Constructed Fence To Keep Wild Dogs From Property

Published by:

In Australia, the most popular fencing for residential properties nowadays is the colorbond fence installation in Perth provided by companies such as www.skilledfencing.com.au but a farmer in New South Wales was just happy that he was to able to build a fence all around his property.

Jack Glasson is a native of Jimembuen found in the southern part of New South Wales. He said that profitability of farms around the area has been affected because of the rise in the numbers of wild dogs as well as kangaroos.

Up until three years ago, there have been no known attacks of dogs in the area but the number of incidence started to rise.

This is why they have decided to install an exclusion fence that spans 22 kilometres. The fence is 1.8 meters in height and it is surrounding three sides of their property. They are planning to build an additional 10 kilometres next year in order to complete the project.

Mr. Glasson decided to build the fence not only because of wild dogs but also because there have been attacks from kangaroos and deer in the area.

Mr. Glasson made sure that the fence will not only be able to keep dogs away but other animals to make sure it is worth the construction. The fence they have built is able to withstand the kangaroos, feral pigs and deer.

The grazing pressure has been affected because of the kangaroos and this in turn impacts on the crop in a negative manner.

The crops of the farmers are being wiped out. It is common for them to spot 2,500 kangaroos within the 250 hectares of paddock planted with wheat.

The survival rates of the lambs in the previous year were also irregular and they think that the cause of the problem is the kangaroos. Kangaroos may have been interfering with the sheep during the night-time thus causing the lambs to separate from their mothers.

The farmers are confident that the fence they have built is a good investment. Investment is also the reason why many residents in Perth decided to hire colorbond fence installation in Perth.

Self Portrait Of Pop Artisit Andy Warhol Auctioned For Millions

Published by:

Pop art started from with New York artists Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein , James Rosenquist and Claes Oldenburg. Because of them popular imagery became a world phenomenon. Pop art artists were inspired by commonplace objects and people they meet in daily life. Pop art soon became one of the most recognizable forms of modern because of the commercial images used.

A silkscreen print of pop artist Andy Warhol’s self portrait will be auctioned for the first time with an estimated price of $A11.7 million. The self portrait is one of the sequences of prints that were made from the snapshots that Andy Warhol took in a New York dime-store photo booth in 1963 when he was about 35 years old.

The first of the nine different artworks was auctioned at Sotheby’s with a listed estimated price of $A8 million to nearly $A12 million. The photos were the symbols of Warhol’s move from being an artist into a pop art icon because “selfie” became an art of individualism.

In the early 60’s Andy Warhol achieved fame through his portrayal of well known celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor. When Andy Warhol placed himself before the camera, it meant that he was purposely joining the ranks of self portraying icons like Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso.

Most pop artists started their careers in commercial art and Andy Warhol was one of them. He used to be a successful magazine illustrator and graphic designer. His background in commercial art provided the training in the visual world of pop culture.

Warhol has successfully predicted that in the near future, people will get instant fame for 15 minutes. Warhol was certainly true to his prophesy because of the presence of Instagram where self portraits are being posted every second of the day.

Self portraits have never been more relevant to contemporary culture because of the immense popularity of selfies today. Pop Art Prints from self portraits can be a unique décor for your room. The artwork can be a portrait of a celebrity or it can be a human interest photograph. Due to increasing demand, Pop Art Prints have been addedto bestselling artworks.
