Ask and ye shall receive, or Google, I wish I could quit you.

Lonely Planet Burmese Phrase Guide as found on Google Books. Because the book has active copywrite protection, many pages were missing. Okay, a lot of pages were missing. It looks like the CIA posted it actually. However, I think I have enough to tell her hello, my name, and have a nice day.

I would suggest you also learn the phrase, "I do not speak any Burmese beyond 'Hello, how are you?".

Seriously.

You know, I can say hello in Portugese as well as "I don't speak Portugese." It was helpful when I was in Springfield, MA. A Brazilian girl needed help activating her phone card so she could call home. She could understand me in Spanish. It was one of my stranger translations. Up there with helping some Hispanic dude buy tires in Sears.

Who said my degree was useless?
