Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – A Mini Review

July 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 Lanka

July 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 »

Got Hacked :S

July 11, 2012 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Tech.

Apparently some self-proclaimed Turkish Muslim hacker hacked my utterly insignificant blog. This blog gets about 30 visitors a day, on a really good day. And I don’t know what the point of hacking this one. Who ever got in, messed up the admin accounts of the blog and changed the home page saying that he/she is Muslim and from Turkey. • Read More »

True Blood – Not Your Everyday Vampire Love Story

July 1, 2012 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: TV.

I recently started watching this TV show called True Blood. Which is mainly a story about vampire human interaction based on the set of novels “The Southern Vampire Mysteries” by Charlaine Harris. It’s sort of like Twilight for grown ups. It is much darker, and more sophisticated than Twilight and uses lot more violence, horror and sex. True Blood is definitely not • Read More »

Neutrino That Beat The Speed of Light…

June 22, 2012 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Tech.

Some news travel very fast. And some don’t.  Even when both news is about the same thing. Sometimes you see news in big bold letters on the front page of multiple news papers. And few days later there is a small piece of writing in an inner page stating that the original news was reported incorrectly, which you never notice. • Read More »

Facebook Saved the Day!

May 20, 2012 | By Rakhitha | No Comments | Filed in: Me, Myself & I.

Well, this happened exactly a year and a day ago. I was sleeping at home and it was just passed the mid night. Suddenly my phone started receiving short messages continuously. But I was too sleepy to go and check or to put it on silence mode. So I just kept trying to sleep until the morning. • Read More »
