During her first visit to Myanmar in 1999 , she developed a real crush on the country. She followed this up with numerous voyages. Frustrated at not being able to communicate with the inhabitants and while still practicing law as her profession in Paris , she undertook training for a degree in Burmese at the University of Paris-Dauphine . Her stays in Myanmar became more numerous and her knowledge of the Burmese language facilitated meetings with all the local personalities.
In 2005, several Burmese singers asked her to come up with an innovative spectacular for their public. Thus the Rock-Opera “Colours Of Love” was born, written and directed by Yupakalaya and which has the honour of, besides being the first of its kind in Myanmar, bringing together for the first time on the same stage, twelve of the country's most popular singers. Moreover, the success of the show and its producer has crossed borders and spread to other parts of the South-East. Since then, Yupakalaya has become an agent for Burmese singers, actors and models, and has produced many artists, written and composed for some, and organised many shows and events involving the most prominent local personalities. Her reputation assures her of also being invited to all the prestigious events in the country : concerts , festivals, “people” weddings, ceremonies, “fashion-week”, as a jury member at the Miss Myanmar contest... etc. Her absolute mission is to be a representative of French taste and elegance in Myanmar. Her sense of fashion and style has made her a sought-after ambassador followed by the local “Jet-Set”.
