A tribute to my Galaxy Note II It has been more than a year since I ditched my Blackberry and switched to a note. It seems to be one of the best decisions I have made. I have been bullied, laughed at – “are you carrying a hand bag?” - made fun of because of the size of my Samsung Note II. But the large size of ...

One of the privileges of being a dad to me is to be able to drive your kids around. Not around the bend – which I tend to do sometimes according to them - but around town from one activity to another. Of course I disguise the fact that I enjoy this task very much as otherwise I will not ...

Revisiting the new Park Street Mews The green and white decor was very hip I was never impressed with the Park Street Mews. Yes, the place was lovely the atmosphere was great but the food left a lot lacking. In fact I went there to dine in maybe 3 – 4 years ago but my experience was so much below average that I have never stepped ...

A movie that touched my soul - The Sessions Somehow it seems ironic to use the word touching in describing this movie because lack of being able to touch is what makes “The Sessions” so unique.This movie was idling on my shelf for a couple of months because somehow the cover and story outline on the DVD did not do justice to such a strong and powerful story.

I am a gym junkie. If you look at me this is not an evident fact. But that does not stop me from visiting the gym 6 days a week. More importantly it also does not stop me from experimenting with all sorts of nutrition supplements hoping that it will give me a little edge. In the hope that it ...

Marvelous Marble Beach!!! I woke up to the sounding of crashing waves. The room was dark with a few rays of light streaming through the blinds. For a few minutes I could not figure out where I was. I remember leaving Colombo at 4 in the evening after picking up my fellow travelers. We could not have chosen a worse time to set ...

One of the down sides of travelling in Sri Lanka is access to clean toilets. Us guys can easily do it outside behind a tree but when you are travelling with females and little kids this becomes even more important. In fact access to clean toilets is so important to me I pay nearly double the market price for Ceylinco ...

A not so funny humorous perspective… I was on the road to Wilpattu with some overseas visitors. We had stopped in the heart of Puttlam town to buy some provisions. When I heard giggles in the background. It seems my visitors found the name board of a store funny. I looked at the board they were referring to and for the life of me could ...

She walks out of a dressing room after a fit on. He is seated on a chair, head bent over his phone waiting patiently for someone. Their eyes lock together and light up and they automatically smile warmly at one another. Just like good friends do when they see each other after a long time. There is genuine affection ...

I just did and thought they were great. They are a bunch of good looking guys who take popular songs and then do a classic American style 50’s version of them. Listen to this version of “Torn” which they have done, its absolutely wonderful and really infectious. The most amazing thing however is that these guys are from Germany.
