A new beginning at MOSA

A new beginning at MOSA:
Myanmar Overseas Seafarer Association.
What is all about this? Why do I attend this training? What for?

Well, this is the common questions asked by my Zomi friends.
They're eager to know about it as they have no clue of what is going on with me at present. Well, I've got have a chance for the interview at CTI for Lewis Cruise Line in Europe last December. Did I say Lwis? Yes, it will be an IT Job, they called it "IT Specialist job" on the ship. About 12 people interview from Myanmar passed for the job and we've in the process of applying for CDI.

Before applying it, we are required to have a certificate from MOSA. This is the brief history of why I go to MOSA. This training will last about one and half to two months from 8:30 to 12:00 Noon. I need to leave home at 7:45 and have lunch somewhere in the town after the training. I continue to work; go to my regular work from 12:30 to 8:30 PM to make it 8-working hours per day.

Do you think I'm happy for that?
Well, Yes. But tiresome since the work is at the right while the training is another thing. Fortunately, I'm totally free on Saturday and Sunday. So, typically Sunday and Saturday is a time for Family.

Do I enjoy at MOSA?
The rules are very strict there. We requested to wear only shirt and longi everyday. No talking during the meeting. We charge fee for late comers- of course for the fund per the instruction of the teachers. We're about 60 people from different background, who are almost ready to go onboard. The teachers and the students voted me to be the class monitor there. Do I have additional task for being a class monitor? Not much a part form recording, organizing and helping the students, teachers for the class
