Aung Sun Suu Kyi's Burmese speech

A translation of Aung Sun Suu Kyi by Soe Moe

As I had to try to explain DASSK's Burmese speech to my immediate family members who could not understand the language completely, this is my humble translation of her speech in English that she gave to the 5000 plus crowd of Burmese in Singapore at Resorts World Singapore on 22/09/2013 and that I have translated to the best of my ability. I just felt that any other English language speakers could also benefit from her words of wisdom.

My sincerest apologies for any mistakes in usage of the language as I myself am no expert in this:)

The Day The Reds Made the Devils Bleed…

It's been a while since I watched a live match, and part of the reason was time, but more importantly with the astronomical costs of watching a game in Singapore, my Premier League football watching days ground to a halt, once cable vision took over. Oh it's called EPL now? I guess it's been a while… Anyway, there was a tremendous sense of occasion and I felt that the game between the Reds of Liverpool and the Red Devils of Manchester United would be an intense game between two old rivals that boast 38 league titles between them. Furthermore Man U are closing in on the total titles won, and are only 2 short of Liverpool's total. This will be the first of many clashes this season, and soon after this, Liverpool will be facing Man U again in the League Cup, and it's David Moyes' first game at Liverpool as Man U's new manager, and he has never won at Anfield as a player or as a manager at Everton.
