Releasing the Clutch, Top Gear US and Some Other Things

Me, Myself and I
Image : WikipediaWhen TopGear US started sometime ago, I was one of the people who were looking forward to seeing it rather than disapproving it straight away. However, being the avid watcher of TopGear UK that I am, TG US seemed a bit hard ... well... to like. It missed the lunacy and sensibility of ...

Android Hiccups

Me, Myself and I
Been a while. Yeaaah yeaaah. I've been sort of busy. Anyway, since I am here and got in to the mood of writing, I thought of sharing some things about Androids - being a user of a phone for around 5 months. Getting used to a Galaxy 5, jumping off from a K750i seemed a bit of work. I wasn't ...

What is the Best Budget Android Phone?

Me, Myself and I
I first time heard about some operating system developed by Google for mobile phones about two or three years ago from Jelly when we were discussing about what topic to choose to give a speech on. When he asked me what I know about Android for the first time, only ...

American Muscle Vs. Europian Common Sense

Me, Myself and I
Yeah, Yeah!! I know...... I know. It's been a while since I last did some writing around here. A guy can be busy, you know. Lot has happened during the time I was taking a significant break from blogging. Mmmm can't be bothered to mention everything! Even at the moment ...

Customer Service... humph!!

Me, Myself and I
Maintenance ES of the grid substation we were assigned for training this week turned out to be quite OK. Other ES seemed to know a hell of a lot about what he is doing. They were very cooperative and what he shared with us about the circuit breakers and transformer tap-changer wowed my friends ...

Chicken Koththu and Rubbish TV

Me, Myself and I
When I was 8 inches shorter, 25 kilos lighter and 8 years younger Sinhala and Hindu New Year season was one of the best times in the year. Since January, I never got tired of counting down the days to 13th of the hottest month of the year. I got to visit all over the places and got to meet ...

Missed Me?

Me, Myself and I
Howdy reader? Been a while since I last mentioned something here. Last week I was more or less off the radar or off the map if some may prefer it that way. Inevitably this has become a blog on my training experiences which I can't help simply because that's the only thing going on in my life these days. I ...

Shit Happens ( luckily near a garage )

Me, Myself and I
Today I got the vehicle to go to my training place. Yesterday was pretty all right because we got to know new things much more than the previous days. Therefore I was hoping to stay a bit late and check out stuff that we couldn't cover in the previous days. That means I got the power to determine the time ...

I'm Bored

Me, Myself and I
I just realized that I become utterly bored on-line more frequently than used to be. Perhaps it's got something to do with Facebook which is becoming less and less exciting day by day. When it first came out I was counting minutes that ...

Mmm that's weird...

Me, Myself and I
I don't know how I forgot to mention this in my last entry and found it very creepy because things such as this are never forgotten to mention normally. For a start this might be of no interest to you if you are not interested in those things that we call cars. On this Thursday we had a huge High ...

LECO Completed!!! YAY!!!!

Me, Myself and I
The feeling is awesome to finally realize that I have successfully finished the month of training at LECO. In the coming weeks I will get to travel farther distances but might not turn out as interesting as the times during my stay at LECO divisions. With the infamous rumours my impression about Customer Service Centres wasn't good - which was ...

ඇති යන්තං

Me, Myself and I
During our Level 3 Semester 1 exams I had to drive to uni to save time on the trip back and forth on a couple of days. With a proper bus service it wouldn't have taken agonizingly long time to reach home from uni, but since most of 152 buses take more time to get from Koswaththa to my place ...

Awesome week

Me, Myself and I
Wore my favourite shirt today. I know that it is of no interest to you, but still this IS MY blog and you CHOSE to read I thought what the hell?. This week turned out to be pretty all right. We had training in System Operations of LECO head office and on Monday my first impression was count of huge ...

Choosing a Template for the Blog.... humph!!

Me, Myself and I
I thought A/L was hard. I very well understood that that I perhaps I'm wrong while rushing through 166 pages of a website containing blogger templates. Some were too extravagant and having that would not be appropriate for a guy who studies engineering (*wink). I don't want my blog page to look like a pandol for a start. As I ...

After 2*3 ( that means six ) days....

Me, Myself and I
Mmm I think I messed it up a bit in the presentation today. Found it bit hard to find the words and there were some fumbles here and there. Well it wasn't a disaster, but feel a bit disappointed. Today was my last day at LECO Kotte branch and next week the separated trio will be reunited in the System ...

I'm in love and always will be....

Me, Myself and I
My God it's been a tough week. When I was training at CEB Head Office I thought loads of writing can't get any worse. "How hard could it be?" I told myself and maybe someone heard me too! Who knows, the guy next to me might be a psychic you know. It's been hell of a lot of walking than ...

Got off the bus at the wrong place... AGAIN!!!!

Me, Myself and I
First day training at LECO. I've visited the place once to get a special interview for campus newsletter sometime ago. But that day I arrived at the place with a savvy guy who knew where he was going, hence knew something will go wrong today when finding the place. Mislead by dad's driver's faulty navigation and Jellybrainguy's misinterpreted directions I ...

Yet another 100

Me, Myself and I
Was little reluctant last night to go for a swim this morning as I've become a lazy bum ,but my drive to build some muscles kept my engine going anyhow. Getting up around 6.30am is also hard in my book. Got off the bed without much trouble, though. Collected the goggles from the freezer( my coach advised to keep them ...

Couldn't Go for a "bath" today (as my pal Ruki would say)

Me, Myself and I
Past few months have been really hectic. Gosh I don't think I've ever been busier with all those never ending exams, countless MATLAB assignment and similar amount of course works. That said, I enjoyed doing those being the guy who pleases himself working. OK, may be that was too much of trumpet work, some might say.This packed schedule never allowed ...
