MEHS 10th Reunion Banner Image

Mrs. Dalia Myat San

My mother, Daw Dalia Myat San taught at MEHS from 1956 to 1980. My mother, eldest brother Kendrick Myat San and I are now living in Singapore. My sister, Marilyn Myat San is now in Vietnam. Since all of us are from MEHS we were very excited to receive the address of this web site from an old friend.

Please encourage old students to circulate these addresses and update the webpage and also encourage more to attend the reunion in UK 2001. We will definitely be there.

    From time to time I would browse the MEHSA site and thought I should add some updates relating to my mum – Dalia Myat San – who will be 90 this coming Jan. 2009. My two sisters, Marilyn and Vernette will be organizing it and I will of course be there as well.

    In her golden years she has been mentally alert but physically frail and it didn’t help much when she decided to climb up on a stool to drag some bags down and she fell and broke her wrist bone (Colles fracture). That was back in 2005, and a couple of years ago in 2006, just to entertain us for Christmas she toddled around the backyard, slipped and fell and broke her hip. (# neck of femur). By God’s grace she recovered well from both fractures and even made a trip to Singapore to visit us in April 2008.

    Of course we could keep her “restrained” in Singapore for only 30 days after which she insisted she had to be back home. Guess that’s what – Home Sweet Home – means. Her cataract operation, before the days of IOLs in Burma – has her reading through thick lens but it does not stop her from doing her word puzzles every day as she says she has to keep her mind sharp. While her recent memory seems to have started failing, her remote memory is still fantastic and she can rattle off most of her students’ names and their siblings to boot! I must admit – my remote memory falls way short behind mu mom’s.

    God willing she will still be around for a few more years at least, at this rate – but we have to make sure she is under 24 hrs “surviellence” of course. Will try to upload some photos for those interested, later. One thing for sure – whenever she mentions or we talk about MEHS – you can still see the sparkle in her eyes.

    Mrs. D. Myat San was one the first teachers from whom I had the privilege of being taught, this in Mathematics, when I first came to our ‘dear old MEHS’.

    It is only through Mrs. Myat San’s gentle Skills & Teaching ability, and Patience, that were able to have the enigmatic, theorems of geometry, the formulae of algebra and even straight forward Arithmetic, collectively termed Mathematics – to get these to sink into my brainless skull.

    Thank you Mrs. Myat San.

    Hi all,

    My mom – Dalia Myat San, just celebrated her 94th birthday in Jan 2013 and is pretty frail physically and mentally. She has become more forgetful but can still hold a conversation, albeit with many repeated questions. She does need constant supervision just in case she has a fall and break something (again). My 2 sisters and I make frequent visits to her home in Yangon, as we feel she needs to see more of us and to also keep up a constant check on how things are with her.

    I spoke too soon as, on the 12th of April my Mom tripped and fell and broke her remaining left hip joint, fracture neck of femur. It was a bit problematic to get treatment during Thingyan but she was operated on 14th April and thankfully she is making a very smooth recovery despite her old age. She is currently still in hospital and should be discharged in a few days time.
