Introducing Aunty Gloria, our Cook.

Mrs. Gloria Daw Aye (Aunty Gloria) is a widow with two children and a grandson. Her husband passed away several years ago from heart failure. Born and raised in Yangon, she developed her passion for cooking from her dear mother. Aunty Gloria recalled her mother’s unique cooking method! In order to encourage her to be a creative cook, some dishes had to be produced and put on table, otherwise her mother did not allow her to have dinner! As soon as she got married, she worked in a factory in Star City-Thanlyin; she then worked with the PIME fathers for a few years before working at MLI. Aunty Gloria has been working with us for six months and diligently prepares lunch for the staff as well as keeping the MLI environment clean. What she likes best about working at MLI, is the opportunity to use and develop her culinary skills to nourish others. She feels quite comfortable and her happiest time is when people enjoy her cooking. Being asked abouther cooking philosophy, she emphasized the importance of having interest and passion in what we are doing. Without it, there will be a lack of motivation and happiness. Living not far from her only sister, Daw Helen in Myenigone gives her astrong family bond. The Covid-19 measures have prevented her from meeting her son and daughter regularly. However, her devotional practice to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Infant Jesus of Pragueunites them spiritually and has become her strength during the pandemic. Thank you for being with us, Aunty Gloria.
