New roads ahead for Rakhine’s Mayu Mountain

Construction of a new rough road on Rakhine State’s Mayu Mountain will be completed within a few days, a state MP said.

The road will connect Mayu Kam Zaydi Pyin Village in Rathedaung township with Indin Village in Maungdaw township, passing through Mayu Mountain.

“The construction of the rough road is nearly completed. It will be completed within a day or two,” said U Oo Than Naing, Rakhine State Hluttaw MP for Rathedaung township, who visited the road construction site.

Though the road is only 14 miles long, there were challenges in building it through the mountain, he added.

Observers said the road would ease between Maungdaw and Rathedaung townships, thereby playing an important role in the district’s commercial and military affairs.

U Khin Maung Myint, director of Rakhine State’s Roads Department, told the media that the 40-foot-wide rough road, which is built with the use of 15 machines, will be upgraded to a gravel road in 2017-18.

Another mountain road will also be built on Mayu Mountain with the help of the Union’s special discretionary state budget, he said.

The Department of Rural Development is also looking to upgrade the road from A Ngu Maw to Kyain Chaung in Maungdaw township into a concrete route along the western side of the Mayu Mountain. Another road will be built from A Ngu Maw to Zaydi Pyin, Nyaung Chaung, and Buthidaung township on the eastern side of the mountain.

Thai penis whitening trend raises eyebrows

Image copyrightLELUXHOSPITALImage captionAuthorities warn the procedure could be quite painful A supposed trend of penis whitening has captivated Thailand in recent days and left it asking if the country's beauty industry is taking things too far. Skin whitening is nothing new in many Asian countries, where darker skin is often associated with outdoor labour, therefore, being poorer. But even so, when a clip of a clinic's latest intriguing procedure was posted online, it quickly went viral. Thailand's health ministry has since issued a warning over the procedure. The BBC Thai service spoke to one patient who had undergone the treatment, who told them: "I wanted to feel more confident in my swimming briefs". The 30-year-old said his first session of several was two months ago, and he had since seen a definite change in the shade. 'What for?'
