[chuck] in Myanmar, Other, longyi

The package label off the Kachin longyi that I received as a gift last December (thx, Saw Htun). "Classic Quality Better Than You Think" is pretty fantastic advertising copy. "Always be shine like silver blings", however, has to win a prize for charming inscrutability. I keep reading it over and over like a koan. [NOTE: The longyi is beautiful with simple green lines on a dark blue background].
