Getting Out Of the Office: Tantalize 2014 If there’s one thing that we really, really get out for, it’s Tantalize. What‘s Tantalize? The organizers – students from APIIT – generally define it as Sri Lanka’s largest inter-university talent show, which is pretty accurate – but somehow fails to convey to level of professionalism that university students can bring to the table when given a chance. In ...

“Sirisena Is Part Of A Foreign Conspiracy”, says Siripala. “Our priority should be the party and the party cadres”. No shit you fat tub. Screw the citizens. Nimal Siripala a.k.a. Sherlock Holmes It could be nothing but a foreign conspiracy. There’s literally nothing can happen against the Rajapakse regime that is not the result of a foreign conspiracy. If someone wants to run against Mahinda in a presidential election, it’s a foreign conspiracy. If Basil wants something and the supreme court denies it, it’s a foreign conspiracy ...

Last week, I met a young boy who is deaf. He used a hearing device and his parents had taught him to lip read when he was young. He has come a long way and after having studied in Japan, he has used all his earnings to help others who are deaf, in training them to find them employment and ...

So Mithripala Sirisena is named the common candidate for the upcoming presidential election. Personally, I’d have liked a UNP candidate. But then again, it’s unlikely any UNPer would be able to crack the ruling party like Mithripala can. This is really the best the opposition can do right now. I can’t blame them. Mahinda has to be stopped. The Rajapakse ...

Mr. Maithripala Sirisena’s appearance as the common candidate opposing the incumbent president has thrown the Sri Lankan political scene into whirl. Unfortunately, all we hear from the opposition is that they are going to abolish the presidency, but, exactly how are they going to do? As articulated recently, will the common candidate have the support of the two third of the MPs in the parliament ...

He is not too happy about my little commentary on local politics, is worried that I would go make some random comment, get arrested and he ...

But a lot of hard work, and a passion for food has got me to where I am today. At my recent supper club in ...
