Jem, a Movie! #Jemthemovie - I vote yes! From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jem_(TV_series)If you ever lived in Sri Lanka and was born in the 1980's, you may remember Jem & The Holograms. In my mind, it falls in to the category of Thundercats, Ninja Turtles, Silver Hawks and a whole host of other cartoons that belong to our childhood. Out generation.Jem was special for reasons unknown to me, many many years ...

Mid week highs Are in the little things... A tiny little bud straining towards the golden sunlightSoaking up the suneager to catch a glimpse of the glory No matter how short. Alive

"Remember they are one and we are many" Elections upon us again. I hope you participated in the few acts of democracy we as citizens get to exercise these days. Too many have fought hard and sacrificed to win people this right. Especially for women. Respect it. Vote for what you believe in, or the lesser evils as the case maybe.

Random Thoughts It's been a while since I thought about anything. Inspirations come and go. Funny how they are fleeting. Like a feather in the wind. Once past, it is lost forever. What ever inspired a thought and torrent of words, never return. Disappear in to the air, just like where ever it came. I'll keep this in bullet form so random ...

The Big Picture Sometimes it's hard to tell what you're looking at, until you take a step back and look at the larger picture. That's an important point to keep in mind when living life in general. Having said that, it doesn't mean we should discard what is right in front of our faces either. Beauty is in whatever we choose to see it in. Enjoy.

Seafood Riddles Just some random dinner table riddles,  I couldn't help sharing. They made me chuckle. The soup was pretty nice too. I love seafood. I wish I didn't like eating it so much. This is why I will never be a vegetarian. Sigh.

Funerals for Suicides There has been an alarming wave of suicides reported in the media recently. I wonder if these reports further fuel the culture where ending one's life is the natural outcome of ones personal anguish. Who knows what the troubled mind endures before it reaches the conclusion life is not worth living. It reminds me of the times when suicide touched ...

The Pickle What do you do when childhood dreams are now coming true. Then,  you realise life is bigger. While getting what you'd like to have is a nice validation and confirmation of certain insecurities of self worth,  common sense and reality taps me on the shoulder,  matter of factly. It's the reminder to take a step back and see the big ...

Gedara Bunis -  Homemade A quick google search for any recipe leads to a multitude of search results these days, and I like to try out different ones. After a couple of experiments, I decided this recipe shared on a blog I found is really the easiest, fastest way to make dinner rolls in 30 mins. Basically I'm just cutting and pasting the same ...

Snowglobes I met a lady who has a snow globe collection and I marvelled at them. How pretty and colourful. Such a sight of pleasantness that brings a smile. With just a touch of wistfulness. Who would've ever thought snow globes would make me sad. The thought itself makes me even sadder. Is it the memories? Of innocence lost? I remind ...

The Road. We're travelling to and from things all the time. I suppose in a way we're all time travellers and memories are what take us back and forth. The good,  the bad and the ugly,  if you will. I really have a lot of little adventures I want to share as posts and will try to do that in the next ...

Mocha Cup Reflections Weekends are especially good. Especially when staring deeply in to premonition like reflections in my morning coffee/chocolate mocha I pretend is really tea on a Thursday morning. I realise how impatiently I anticipate Fridays. And eagerly welcome the weekend. The match is going well. We're going to win. The Mister is happy, once in a while commenting on how silly ...

The Case of the Lunu Kenda The Mister has been sick. It started with a text message lamenting the fact he was slowly dying. Then as the day increased his lamentations of impending doom grew and I ended up going home early just to spend a few hours more attending to him.It is curious how the common cold affects us all in different ways. Dare I ...

End of Feb,  2014 Well it's been a pretty good month,  folks. The second month of 2014 already gone by. Eyes and arms wide open for March. Need to prioritise and be more productive next month. Time is too short. Let's do it!

Eye of the Beholder I have been around cameras ever since I was a child. Yet,  a fascination over taking photographs as a hobby came on a school trip to Anuradhpura a very long time ago. Things were not digital then. I remember looking ridiculous in my school uniform with my fathers large canon camera around my. Heavy but the highlight of my trip. ...

Blue Sky Sunrise It doesn't matter where you are in the world, the sight of the sky is all you need to feel rejuvenated. Recharged. Thankful to be alive.Ready to face yet another entire week of the same routine, over and over again. Just to do the same chores over the weekend to wake up again on Monday. Still for all, this sunrise is what reminds you of why we are alive. Good morning, world!

Tip of the Iceberg It seems a sorry state of affairs when one reads about a child who commits suicide because of how she was disciplined at school. She left a heartbreaking note behind explaining herself and the injustice she felt. It breaks my heart to know the school system,  decades after we went through it ourselves,  has not changed. The crime a child ...

Good bye facebook. I did it. Imagine meeting someone and they say, "I'm not on facebook." I've envied those people. Even felt awe and respect. How do they do it, I wondered. Facebook just celebrated ten years a few weeks ago. They've become a giant in social media. It is the largest space where a large group of humans voluntarily forgo some of ...

So, what is this I hear, WhatsApp purchased by FB for $16B?Wonderful. One less app that does the same thing. I wonder what Facebook plans to do with it.Once upon a time, I tried to jot down how I felt about multiple apps that do the same thing, and to this day WhatsApp can only still message and not make ...

February Wednesday Blues I wish I could do a picture a day for 365 days. Or keep at anything for a long stretch of time. Stick to one book. I'm almost 80% of the first Game of Thrones book. But I'm worried I should be reading more substantial books, with history and knowledge in them, instead of mediaeval make believe fantasy. The NPR ...
