NAYPYIDAW, Myanmar — When Myanmar’s parliament is in session, lower-house MP Sai Win Khaing lives in a cramped room in the capital, Naypyidaw.
In Burmese, Naypyidaw means “the abode of kings.” But there is nothing regal about this abode. Two small bed frames, one ceiling fan, an air-conditioning unit and one bathroom. A laptop sits on a desk. Wire screens cover the windows.
