Mr. Henry is passionate in creation and he is also a food lover. This village kitchen and garden is designed by his own creation and a perfect place for people to get away from Yangon. A small land in a quiet village has a rich collection of plants and trees. He collected flowers, plants, trees, woods and chairs from different part of Myanmar. Woods are mainly old and recycled ones that he used in building up this beautiful and attractive kitchen and for some furniture for sitting while we’re waiting for the home cooked foods. A little workshop is attached at the kitchen and community from the village are trained for making shopping baskets. This helps the low-income people to earn extra in their daily life.
