I got to know the lovely English teacher Grace through an Australia – Myanmar school exchange. Since, we have stayed in touch and after a couple of years I had the privilege to catch up with my dear friend in her home country.
It was Grace, who introduced me to the well established Burmese florist Koko Win. Koko Win is extremely gifted and skilled. How fortunate I was to create some floral art pieces with him for one of the bigger Chinese weddings in Mandalay. When the groom came over to check out the floral proceedings, I got invited for his wedding that would take place on the next day. The wedding couple was thrilled about the floral masterpieces as well as my foreign presence. For this reason, some pictures had to be made on stage. Grace, Koko Win and I had a ball at the wedding and I’m positive that our floral relationship will bring us together again in the future!
