Dear Richard,

I am very happy in your replay and thank a lot for your valuable advice and suggessions. I think I am quiet sutable to start my career as a "Piping Designer" (not a `Piping Engineer'). Once again I am very much grateful to your honest replay.

I am expecting your advises in future.

Best regards,
