Bloody Peasants! This was the comment made on a fb post I had shared where Derana made an apology for criticizing Kishani Jayasinghe on singing "Danno Budunge" in an operatic style.I resented that comment.As much as I resented all the negative comments made about the performance.Because this, along with most of the other comments supporting the performance reeked of - ...

This little nugget of valuable info is embedded in my previous post titled "What should have been the most popular TED talk every". However in this modern world of seven second Vine videos and 140 character text messages watching an entire TED talk to find the key to happiness would not be appealing to most people. This video distills what ...

"I don't eat fruits, or potatoes or pork or chicken and very rarely...fish" she said to no one in particular. 30 heads looked up in surprise around the breakfast table. A few, exchanging knowing glances. Which read a desperate "Oh no!""I always try to eat organic, and try to eat healthy" she continued. Now there is nothing wrong in sharing ...

"I have never loved anyone as much as I loved him" she says. I scratch myself wondering how to respond?This is not the first time I have heard her say this. And I doubt this is not the last. How can someone fall in love with someone you have never met?Whose just an image on a computer screen? Yes you ...

Remember the band KISS?They said it was an acronym for Knights in Satan's Service.Or Stair ways to heaven by Led Zeppelin? They said it has lyrics worshiping Satan when back-masked (Playing it backwards).If you haven't heard of either of these bands - after all they were bands of my youth - I am sure you would have heard "Hotel California" ...

Three circles of blessings converged in the last week to bring me an absolutely wonderful experience. It started with a walk outside my office and stepping in to a store to check out the price of a phone. To my amazement they had special deal through which they were giving a 30% discount. A price too good to ignore. And ...

It was a innocent face book question which caught my attention. What would you do if you were pulled over by a cop for a traffic violation?1. Explore the possibility of paying a bribe.2. Leave your license with the cop and pay the fine and collect the license later.3. Don't know.For me I always would chose the first route. Not ...

Sco(r)ned!!!! I was shaking with anticipation in a beautiful tea house in Vienna. Maybe it was lust?I was going to be eating my first scone! The fact that they were serving scones triggered a flood of memories. Of me devouring Enid Blyton books and thinking how delicious this thing called scones must be. Be it fantastic four. Or famous five or ...

Wow! It has been over a month since I have posted something on here. As far as I am concerned there is no better way to start my first post for the new year with a subject which has been titillating the entire country for far too longer than necessary.The dark cloud of global negative publicity which seemed to have ...

Amazing value for money It was a rainy night… I had two hours to kill and I wanted to be around Colombo. So I decided to head over to another one of my favourite hangouts White & Co on marine drive. I love that place. The food is good the coffee is excellent but I have also found that it offers the best value ...

Buth packet without the buth! No this is definitely not a post about being let down at a restaurant. Though one could be excused for thinking so when reading the title. But this is one absolutely simple and clever way of getting your hands on a great value for money low carb meal conveniently. "Why did not I think of this?" was my first reaction ...

A simple solution for a complex problem…. Ouch! Sh*t! F*ck! Definitely not the kind of language you generally hear in the presence of genius. But that's what spewed out of my mouth when I banged my head unceremoniously as I entered the Yala national park. I had discovered the hard way that a new precautionary measure has been put into effect by the department of wild life ...

My favourite vegetarian dish… “Part time vegetarian” that would be the best way to described me.A majority of my meals are vegetarian. However it does not stop me from chomping down a good crab curry, roast pork or any other mouth watering morsel which comes to mind. One thing is for sure though I feel better when am on complete vegetarian mode. Both mentally ...

I always thought grief should be something private.Something which should not be shared with others. Something which should be put behind you in the shortest possible time.This was one reason why I used to be very cynical when people had funerals spread over 07 days with the entire neighborhood inside their house. In fact I was always for the short ...

The Terribly Beautiful road less taken….. One road ends and another begins First I thought of it as just a rumor - this was many decades ago – as people were talking about a track which connects Puttlam to Mannar going through the jungles. Where one could run into elephants or bear and sometimes the roads were impassable. To me it was enticing as listening to ...
