This image is doing its rounds on Facebook and to be frank, I think we can buy many of these things with money. Not in a bad way by the way. You just need to know where to shop. IMO why most of us think money can’t buy happiness and many other things in this list, is • Read More »

Why Sri Lanka Need Rs 15000 or Even Cheaper ComputersAugust 6, 2013 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Sri Lanka, Tech.
I came across this post on readme.lk recently. It’s about upcoming policy on import of used computer systems to cut e-waste. Which is good. Because we do very little recycling. And e-waste consist of mostly non recyclable material with many toxic chemicals. However what I do not agree is the statement which claims Sri Lanka • Read More »

Full Airport ExperienceFebruary 17, 2013 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Sri Lanka, Travel.
This Saturday I went to Colombo airport to drop off my wife. Usually once I drop off someone, I leave the airport as soon as they pass the scanners to go to check in counters. But since this was Saturday morning and there was nothing much to do afterwards, me and another friend who came to drop off his wife decided to • Read More »

Using Metered Tuk Tuks to Find Business for Non-Metered Tuk TuksDecember 16, 2012 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Me, Myself & I, Sri Lanka, Travel.
Three-wheelers or Tuk tuks are quite useful when you are out shopping. Specially these days, because the car parks at most of the shops are guaranteed to be full during rush hour due to x’mas shopping. Therefore it’s a natural choice to ditch the car at a larger car park and then take a three-wheeler to shops and when hopping between • Read More »

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – A Mini ReviewJuly 31, 2012 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Movies, Sri Lanka.
I watched Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted couple of weeks back at Liberty Cinema at Kollpity. Even-though the story was bit predictable and common it was still enjoyable. For me Madagascar was never about a story but if was about the animals and the monkeys and the penguins. This version on Madagascar incorporated more music, including the best version of “I like to • Read More »

Ice Age 4 and 3D Bandwagon in Sri LankaJuly 29, 2012 | By Rakhitha | 2 Comments | Filed in: Movies, Sri Lanka.
Around this time of last year, Sri Lanka did not have any 3D movie theater. If you wanted to have a 3D movie experience, only choice was to go for a movie while in another county. Finally with the end of 2011, MC Cineplex opened with one 3D theater. Now we are half way through 2012 and there • Read More »
