Htet, arrogant son of Burmese Tay Za, enjoying in Singapore

Htet, the arrogant son of Burmese businessman Tay Za, really knows how to enjoy his life while millions of people of Burma suffer back home. Tay Za’s son is currently attending school at Singapore’s United World College of South East Asia. The following article was reproduced from The First Post, UK:

While Burma’s wealthiest tycoon, Tay Za, tries to protect his millions from US-led efforts to destroy his business empire, his 19-year-old son Htet Tay Za is living it up in Singapore and has sent an arrogant email to friends - accompanied by photos of him partying with pretty girls - saying: "US bans us. We're still f---ing cool in Singapore."

The email, which is believed to be genuine, continues: "We're sitting on the whole Burmese GDP. We've got timber, gems and gas to be sold to other countries like Singapore, China, India and Russia.

"My brother is rocking on his red brand-new Lamborghini with hot sexy Western chicks... and I need another Ferrari to rock on."

A former schoolfriend said: "The email seems to be genuine. That's his style. He's an arrogant bastard. The pictures of him partying are certainly genuine and recent."

Htet Tay Za attends one of Singapore's most expensive schools, the United World College of South East Asia, but it's not clear whether his famous father will be able to afford the fees much longer as sanctions on Burma's business leaders begin to bite.

Tay Za's airline, Bagan Air, is reported to be in deep trouble. Local Burmese are boycotting its services because of Tay Za's close links with the hated junta.
