Free Gift – Aung San Suu Kyi Badges

When this blog was born i had not experienced blogging or Burma first hand. This is a post celebrating both. It’s amazing that there has been so many clicks of the Subscribe link, and as a small token of my appreciation i have hand crafted fifty Aung San Suu Kyi badges to post out on a first come, first sent basis. Burma has provided me with so much of my blogging content, so much inspiration that it seems fitting to gift badges of Aung San Suu Kyi. One of the most wonderful women to grace earth.

The image on the badge is by artist Frank Shepard Fairey, the artist who designed the 2008 iconic “Hope” poster for Barack Obama’s presidential election campaign. If wearing the badge helps to stimulate conversation about Burma with even one person then surely that is a positive thing.

If you are subscribed to https://pinkybinks.com/ and would like one of the fifty badges on offer please forward a postal address to pinkybinks@hotmail.com.

Peace,

Pinky

    Oh, PB, I want one! Will pick up! (poissonally in poisson!) That’s a literary reference to an inimitable character in a fab Sicily mystery series by Andrea Camilleri )

        PINKY: I wasn’t planning on blogging about esl teaching. However, it could be a whole separate blog site if I keep this up for a while. For the moment, I’d prefer to separate work from play. I have been blogging a bit about food in Saudi’s capital. Fun stuff.

    Very powerful video. Great post – it takes a lot to tear me away from the Paralympics, and you/Aung San Suu Kyi/Jane Birkin have done it. Power to the people of Burma. And thankyou for your message for Nee.

    PINKY: I have a class of 22 engineering students from 13.00 till 14.40 then another from 14.50 till 15.50; but, gotta be clocked in for eight hours. I’m only on my second week of actual teaching, good gig so far. Students in this part of the world respect their teachers. People are generally very nice to us American and Euro peeps. Perhaps this is the opposite of what the average daily TV news consumer in our lands is led to believe. Might you be considering teaching abroad PINKY?

        Have you narrowed down any potential lands? Obviously it’d be best to teach your niche, wonder how many jobs there are where you could do it in English. You’d probably know that much better than me. I did talk to an American lass who was teaching her art specialty in Kuwait. There’s a bloke here who’s an art teacher but took a decently remunerated English teaching gig.

    Waving and smiling, the Nobel Peace Prize winner appeared briefly to loud cheers and clapping from the thousands of people gathered for a glimpse of the 65-year-old, known in Burma simply as “The Lady”.

    Thousands of elated supporters greeted Suu Kyi with cheers, tears and a standing ovation as she took to the stage at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne , Ind. , the fourth stop on her 17-day U.S. tour.
