The last few months have been a great adventure in retrospect, i’ve fulfilled a life long dream of moving overseas to live & work in a different environment, fulfilled a few childish ambitions along the way & i’m slowly coming to terms with the reality that this really is my new home & not some extended vacation. There have been major ...

When i got the tickets for the Australia Vs Pakistan match played at Colombo over the weekend i didn’t expect much. After all Sri Lanka wasn’t playing, it was a poya Holiday hence no booze & missing were the dozens of papare bands that make the Sri Lankan cricket atmosphere so unique. But it was an electric atmosphere all the same, the pakis were doing mexican ...

Was going through the Kottu Blogroll this morning after a lapse of probably a year or more. Found some interesting posts from a lot of blogs I’ve never read before & noticed that for some reason my blog is still listed there, quite surprised to be honest given that I haven’t posted anything in months. There’s not been much to report to be ...

The last year or so has been quite difficult for me, especially since I’m not the type of bloke to die wondering. I like to take things head on & get on with something full on. But maybe I rush into things too much & I needed to learn the finer art of patience. Either way, God has been good ...

I was challenged by a friend of mine to find out the real meaning of love & I had to turn to the good book for some answers. What I found was quite intriguing. I’ve been always taught ‘’God’’ is love & love itself is kind, patient, not self seeking & the whole works of Corinthians 1.13. Thus if I ...

The fish to fishing trip ratio. Calculated by dividing the total number of fish caught in a calendar year by the number of fishing trips by definition, has been nothing short of disgraceful over the past year. It’s for people like us that the japanese decided to award degrees in fishing because though some people may try & try quite hard at that, they ...

Sitting in a crowded room of fellow graduates last night I simply couldn’t shake off the feeling of meaninglessness of it all. Someh0w, the dots don’t connect anymore. The line ends here. Graduate. So now what? Amidst the emptyness though it was refreshing to hear some kid named Joanna play the piano & worship. Even if it was for only just ...

i woke up this morning feeling quite shitty, which is bucketloads better than how i woke up the 2 previous mornings with phlegm stuck down my windpipe & almost unable to breathe. The fever was almost completely down, though i still do quite strangely feel fit! I was hoping i would miraculously get better without any form of medication in time for today’s game against the University ...

In a strange twist of events I ended up watching Batman with Christian Bale & read a part of Freakonomics & fear within the space of a couple of hours. I must admit i wasn’t too thrilled after finding out  that my life as it stands was driven fundamentally by… fear. Fear of the future to a great extent,  Fear of failing & fear ...

SL has a long history doing some ridiculous stuff just prior to hosting an international event, like the removal of some Rajagiriya tin huts before the commencement of the Saarc conference. Well this time around i noticed the RDA had decided to paint the tar separaters along the negombo road all the way from the Airport to Colombo in bright ...

The weather has been relentless over last few days & for some odd reason all routes to my house & office have been left untouched by the floods affecting so many parts of Sri Lanka (hence I’m stuck at office whilst most people seem to be at home today, not complaining though). Noticed that so many friends of mine on Facebook, ...
