Bible Rock Hike

THOUGHTFUL KANI
I went on a hike in the weekend. The destination: Bible Rock a.ka. Bathalegala situated in Kegalle district. It was wet and a perfect example of what a “slippery slope” is. It should have been a moderately difficult climb. But it turned out to be hard core, thanks to the elements. Some of our crew […]

Being a racist isn’t easy

THOUGHTFUL KANI
I tried to be a racist. I am a Sinhalese.  My parents are Sinhalese and all 3 of us are born and raised in Sri Lanka and my mother tongue is Sinhala which I think is enough proof that I’m a pure Sinhalese. FYI, yes, we are all Buddhists. With that confirmation of my racial [...]

Fantacy and Taboo of a tattoo

THOUGHTFUL KANI
I’m back. Not only I’m back, I’m back with a tattoo, the first ever for me. This was one of my all time fantasies and I guess most of the Sri Lankan men in my generation secretly wants to have a tattoo. I know the generation after mine has no prejudices or second thoughts about […]

THOUGHTFUL KANI
The people in Hike Sri Lanka are conducting a hike on 8th of August, that’s next Saturday to climb the Bathalegla (Bible Rock) mountain near Mawanella. They have also decided to give any “foreign visitor” the chance to join them in a bid to promote Sri Lanka (sorry SL guys). The thinking behind this is [...]

Send Unlimited SMSes for Just Rs.1 a day

THOUGHTFUL KANI
Finally, I’ve finished my app on kodeincloude and got published on Etisalat App Zone. TextFree, the app name, is an app which anyone can send unlimited number of SMSes per day for just Rs.1. The Rs.1 is NOT per SMS but for the whole day. I’m sure this is good news for young people. Unfortunately […]

Intimacy!

THOUGHTFUL KANI
President Obama has done in it in public. It was a real crowd pleaser and publically acknowledging their bond. Now, has anyone seen President Rajapakse and our first lady doing that? I don’t think anyone had seen them even holding hands let alone smooching. Can our first couple really show intimacy or affection in public […]

Bureaucracy or utter stupidity

THOUGHTFUL KANI
Ok this is certainly NEWS and makes my blog (errr… website) a “news website”. Today, I went to my local council (UC) to get a bag of compost. I must praise their effort to do something for the environment which is converting trash in their dump into compost. But can you believe I had to [...]

Tickle’s Blue fly catcher at my home garden

THOUGHTFUL KANI
Ok, ok, I must admit there’s going to be a whole lot of bird pictures in this blog cos I’m a bird guy (at least I used to be). By the way, this could be news for some people, lol. The Tickle’s Blue fly catcher (Cyornis tickelliae) is one of my favorite little birds. One […]

Crap, do I own a news website?

THOUGHTFUL KANI
I have a big problem. I just started this blog and before I could put 3 posts here, there was this bombshell of registration of every “news website”. Getting registered is one thing. But the fee of Rs.100,000 is absurd. Now, do I need to be worried? I have this crappy blog which I don’t […]

Sri Lankan Queues

THOUGHTFUL KANI
Sri Lankan queues are very interesting based on who gets the priority. The uncontested champions are the clergy and they go straight to the number one in the line. Then comes the equally important pregnant ladies and I guess they enjoy a privileged life during the 9 months of their pregnancy when it comes to […]
