Legend of Love story "Ma Mya"

In fact , The name of this capital city of Mon state should be "Mawlamyaing"
- pronounce - Maw-Lam-Yai

British knows in the name of Mawlamyine,
But Thai people knows "Ma-La-Maeng"

A song called "Ma-Mya" writen by ChaRun MaNoPetch - Lanna Artist (or Chaing Mai - Northern of Thailand) and sung by Soontari Wechanon.

The truu story about Mon young Lady named "Ma Mya" who was in love with a prince of Chiang Mai named "Suk Sa Saem" who was studing in a college in Mawlamyaing about 1898-1899 AC.

(In that time , there are "Siam" and "Chiang Mai" , not Thailand and Myanmar was Burma , in fact British-Burma)

What happened?
Happy Ending or NOT???

Please take a seat ...I will tell you slowly :)
