Found him yesterday. Should we adopt him or leave him to the security guard? :(

Cheat Sheet for Burmese Script (a copy from BBE)

I am learning Burmese script and put together the summary in one page. The idea is to have something on my phone that i can always check any time.
Here is a jpg file that you can download to your phone.
Again, it is from John Okell Burmese by Ear (BBE).

Summary
Syllable = head + rhyme.

Head can be:
“initial consonant” or
“medial consonant”.

Rhyme can be:
“attached vowel symbol” or
“a consonant with 'killer' symbol at top (look like a c)” or
“combination of an attached vowel symbol and a final consonant”.

I just check the current prize pool is $8,651,184 (21 May 2015), quite a long way to go. People, please keep buying the compendium!

It is always interesting for me to spend the weekend with this 'ritual': open laptop, download the big update, lazily scrolling down through the update list. Watch the live game - read the chat! a lot of spectators will start complain about the update, some will call the player "Noob", another will call the other spectator "Noob" - "Let's "by 1"", or start retyping the 'typo' of another spectator in capitals. I mean, it is fun to see -- they don't know each other, sometimes they don't even know what they are talking about, but they look so sincere and intense! Such a community! And! I am having fun spending hours watching & reading it. Anyway, I can only play after 7pm, so once it is 7pm, puff -- just start the other ritual of "losing the game".It is just amazing that no matter how hard I try, there is always someone screw it -- afk, not buying the right item, being too money oriented, being too nub, in my team! Forget finding Rank Match - never go in there anymore!

OK, enough for my-Noob-class story -- really waiting for The International pro tournament! I wish I could go to US and watch it LIVE. I guess I'll just put that in my bucket list now. Have fun good luck for TI participants and all of us commoners!
