Think before you speak...

This is a forward that I got today... Thought i'd share it for a good laugh!!!

Have you ever spoken and wished that you could immediately take the words back... or that you could crawl into a hole?

Here are the Testimonials of a few people who did....


I walked into a hair salon with my husband and three kids in tow and asked loudly,

"How much do you charge for a shampoo and a blow job?"

I turned around and walked back out and never went back
My husband didn't say a word...
he knew better.


I was at the golf store comparing different kinds of golf balls. I was unhappy with the women's type I had been using. After browsing for several minutes, I was approached by one of the good-looking gentlemen who works at the store. He asked if he could help me.
Without thinking, I looked at him and said,

"I think I like playing with men's balls."


My sister and I were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a variety of candy and nuts.
As we were looking at the display case, the boy behind the counter asked if we needed any help.

I replied, "No, I'm just looking at your nuts."

My sister started to laugh hysterically. The boy grinned, and I turned beet-red and walked away. To this day, my sister has never let me forget.


While in line at the bank one afternoon, my toddler decided to release some pent-up energy and ran amok. I was finally able to grab hold of her after receiving looks of disgust and annoyance from other patrons. I told her that if she did not start behaving "right now" she would be punished. To my horror, she looked me in the eye and said in a voice just as threatening,

"If you don't let me go right now, I will tell Grandma that I saw you kissing Daddy's pee-pee last night!"

The silence was deafening after this enlightening exchange. Even the tellers stopped what they were doing. I mustered up the last of my dignity and
walked out of the bank with my daughter in tow.

The last thing I heard when the door closed behind me, were screams of laughter


Have you ever asked your child a question too many times? My three-year-old son had a lot of problems with potty training and I was on him constantly. One day we stopped at Taco Bell for a quick lunch in between errands. It was very busy, with a full dining room.
While enjoying my taco, I smelled something funny, so of course I checked my seven-month-old daughter, she was clean. The realized that Danny had not asked to go potty in a while.
I asked him if he needed to go, and he said "No".
I kept thinking

"Oh Lord, that child has had an accident, and I don't have any clothes with me."
Then I said,

"Danny, are you SURE you didn't have an accident?"
"No," he replied.

I just KNEW that he must have had an accident,

because the smell was getting worse. Soooooo, I asked one more time,
"Danny, did you have an accident?"
This time he jumped up, yanked down his pants, bent over, spread his cheeks and yelled


While 30 people nearly choked to death on their tacos laughing, he calmly pulled up his pants and sat down.
An old couple made me feel better,
thanking me for the best laugh they'd ever had!


This had most of the state of Michigan laughing for 2 days and a very embarrassed female news anchor who will, in the future, likely think before she speaks. What happens when you predict snow but don't get any! We had a female news anchor that, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked:

"So Bob, where's that 8 inches you promised me last night?"

Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too they were laughing so hard!

After a long time....

Yeah.... A loooong time..... and two things are to be blamed...
1. The blog itself!!! something is wrong with this thing... I cannot log in to my account... atleast to comment... it was bloody irritating!!! But there was nothing I can do about it!!!

2. my busy life it self!! I am unbelievably busy these days!! so busy that I work on Saturday whole day and a bit of Sunday too.... and I'm ashamed to say that I've lost track of dates also!!! till one of my friends told me I was thinking that it was Thursday today!! NOW THAT was a messed up...

but to add a little bit of light to the boring busy life I went to see a stage play... the final show of "Horuth Samaga Heluwen!!!" by Jayalath Manorathne. Mr.Manorathne was not well so someone else played his roles but still it was fantastic...

Its actually two different stage plays "Horu" is one and "Heluwen" is another... now I'm clueless about the origins, some of the actors, who did the music, who wrote it... is it a translation or anything like that!! but I liked it... and the crowd was also good... didn't expect such alot of people to be there...
anyways I like the Horu part of the play.... its basically about a thiefe who tries to break in to the Mayors house and ending up in a big mess coz the Mayor who was not supposed to be there returned un expectedly with one of his girlfriends!!!! the story is too complicated to wrte down like this... but it was hilariouse... some good dialogs in it and some subtle hints too....

and the Heluwen part is also good... but i think its abit too rushed and not much body to it... maybe if JM him self did the part he might've kicked more life in to the character!!! but it also had some subtle critisism in it.. but could've been better... for some reason i think its a translation... I don't know for sure but.... anyway it was good entertainment.....

PREY - The Earth's Saviour Doesn't Want the Job!!

Yeah... Now that is how I spent my poya day!!! I committed ALOT of sin killing a lot of aliens and basically destroying a whole planet... or a habbitat if I put it correctly!!!

Didn't get what I said??? Let me explain...

Produced by 3D Realms and developed by Human Head Studios along with Venom Games, using the legendary Doom 3 engine (which is not developed by id games though!!) "PREY" is a come back of the original game by 3D Realms in early 90's.

(For those who don't really understand where I'm getting at... its a PC game!!)

The Story

You play the role of Tommy (a Cherokee living on a reservation), having a heart to heart with himself. You hear about the emotional grief he has with the love of his life, Jen. Aspirations of what is beyond the reservation plague Tommy to the core and he is within a hair's width of leaving all together, despite his grandfather's wishes. If only Jen would come with him he knows he would be set, yet she is very content with her life and wishes to stay. Here is where the player enters.

Shortly after here the entire bar they work in is ripped from the ground and teleported to the "Sphere" in orbit near Earth. The Sphere is a living mother-ship occupied by a race that seeks to use the human race as food. A fantastic technology of variable portals and tractor beams allows the Sphere to pick and choose what it wants and incorporate that into itself. Tommy, Jen, and his grandfather Enisi are imprisoned on platforms that curve along tracks in the heart of the Sphere.

Where he manages to break free from what seems like a procuction line of a processing plant with help of a rogue!!! and get a gun in to his hand and starts making his way to free his Grand Pa and Jen...

Mixed in to this whole epic is an underlying story of Tommy trying to find himself in his Cherokee ways. All his life he has been resentful of the superstitious "mumbo-jumbo" that his grandfather has been preaching. The ways of the spirits, his ancestors, and everything Cherokee is simply not something Tommy wants to hear. Though his plight forces him to slowly accept things of his heritage, each step is very painful and met with a lot of resistance.

Game Play

Initially Prey looks like any other sci-fi-themed first-person shooter, you get a basic hud where they display the aquired weapons, health bar, the spirit bar (activates after you encounter your spirit realm) and ammunition.
The guns starting from the crazy-looking biomechanicalAssault riffle ( You start with a Pipe wrench but I recall myself going even 150 paces encountering a few small enemies with that... ) all the way to a rocket launcher... most of the weapons are biomechanical with living parts in them that moves and wiggles about when idling.. and they automatically reload... and the Rifle that i mentioned has a sniper mode to it... most bizaare sniper version i've encountered that the living scope of the sniper comes and plugs in to your eye... giving a decent zooming ability and a heat signature too!!!

The weapons are just part of Prey's unusual design. What's really wild about the game is how it uses direction, gravity, and portals to surprise you, disorient you, and impress you. Basically, "up" and "down" is relative throughout the game; certain types of corridors allow you to run straight up onto a wall and then keep moving "forward." Portals tear through the fabric of the bizarre alien landscape you're fighting in, revealing completely different environments on the other side. You run right on through (and can even fire your weapons through) and just keep going, and you'll be suddenly surrounded by different terrain. It comes to real weired levels where you have to shoot and activate the gravity polarizors to "choose" which side you want the ground to be... and not to forget the "walkers" the gravity paths that lets you walk even on the ceiling!!!

Another cool twist to Prey is that you evidently can't die. Your character may leave his body, traveling in sort of a spirit world. It's reminiscent of the Soul Reaver action adventure series, though we're happy to see that the game's innovative twist finds its way into a first-person shooter. When defeated, it looks as if you'll have to literally fight your way back from death's door, shooting the enemies of your ancestors red demons to regain health and blue demons to regain the spirit health... you'll get only about 15seconds to do this till you're sucked back in to the metal world to fight your way....

The soul or the spirit realm is another added feature... Tommy can go in to the spirit realm anytime he wants to.. this comes in handy to go around in the game.. specially through the force fields... and talking about spirits... you cannot forget Talon. The spirit form of Tommy's pet hawk from his childhood who comes along to guide and aid in his quest. It helps us by attacking and distracting the enemies and perching on important consoles hinting us what to do and to decipher the alien language...

Graphics and Sound.

Its the Doom 3 engine... Heavily modified.. not many options to change and play around with... splendid use of color and great visual!!! No glitches that I encountered... I need not say anything else apart from that...


As expected, Prey was quite a treat to play through. provided enough enjoyment to keep you entertained until the next big thing comes along. My concern does lie with the replay value of Prey. I started to go back and play through again, but didn't feel near as much drive as I did the first time when the mysteries were still to be discovered. This leads me to believe the game is pulled along by story a lot more than it is by actual game play. Despite the replay value, simplistic interface, and occasionally cheesy dialogue, I would more than recommend this game to anyone wanting something new. The gravity defying levels, portals, and visuals make it worth your time.

My New Found Love....

Corel Painter IX....
Man this is the software for you if you are in to painting and fine arts.....

This basically is a tool developed by Corel : the company the developed the famous and beloved Corel graphic suit, A special tool for Painters.... with the real time painting experience.

The enviroment or the work space is more like Adobe. You can paint with any medium like water colors or oil paints or pastels or air brush or.. you know.. you name the medium and it has it... and all sorts of brushes and tools... and the canvasas and surfaces of your choice... and you can customize almost anything....

the paint effects are amazing... the beahaviour of the paints are amazingly natural like.... they have special layers to work on water colors water color effects are amzing....

i'm still in the process of learning my way around the software.... but i've doen a few samples with different material and medium as experiments...

Water color on french watercolor paper.

The camel brushes, three basic colors, black and white. Just look at the water color effect.

A close up of the water..

Just look at that!! look how the high ligts has come out. Man its just like using real paint.

Oil paint and Oil pastel on Artists canvas - and diffusor tools.

The tools are amazing. and they provide a real time pallete to mix colors just like how you'd do it on a mixing pallete!!

Oil Pastel

One of my favourite mediums. Look how the grain has come out in the paper!!! superb!!! and the way it has smugded nicely!!! You really feel like you're actually painting with Pastels...

Oil Paint - again on smooth paper

Oil colors another medium that i love to work with.... its a forgiving medium unlike water colors my fav medium...

this is a truely amazing software.. this is only a tiny spec of what is really available in the software... I wish i had more time to write in detail about it... but I guess these small paintings I've done in a hurry will tell you alot about it than i actually say in words...

Art lovers... try it out.... Its truely amazing...

She stopped the rapid punching on the keyboard, stretched her arms lazily and glanced at her wrist watch, leaned back in her seat and let out a sigh.

“It’s almost six o’clock on the Saturday afternoon and I’m still at office working!!! How pathetic can life be?”

She muttered to her self and glanced back at the Computer Screen in front of her.

She was a fair skinned girl who was around 26. Not one of those whom you’d call a “stunning” looking; but her narrow dark brown eyes that always seems to be gleaming, and the narrow lips that looks as if she is smiling even when she wants to frown and her well maintained black silky straight hair; her nice figure, the way she carried and presented herself with self esteem made sure that someone’s eyes were always following her.

She raised her head and looked around the office. The well lit room around her was almost empty. The leaves of the small palm tree were waving un-rhythmically as usual to the wind that was constantly blowing from the air conditioner vent.

“It’s getting a bit too cold now…” she thought while trying to look through the thick blinds that cover the windows of the room. Even though she really couldn’t see it she could feel the gloominess of the rain that was pouring outside. Once in a while she could see the flash of lightening lighting up the whole curtain and then feel the small rumble of thunder that followed it almost immediately….

“Crap!! How on earth am I gonna go now? In this wicked rain!”

She looked around the office room again feeling a little helpless and depressed inside. Across her cubicle she could see a co worker tapping on his keyboard constantly, with a desperate and an exhausted look clouding his face as his gaze fixed on the monitor.

Her eyes left him and started moving around the office room. This time noticing that even with the very well looked after white colored walls and the countless number of lights fixed on the ceiling there was some sort of gloominess covering the room…

She turned her head slightly…. another person came in to her view…. she felt a warm pleasant feeling surfacing out of nowhere…. A faint hint of a smile befell across her face.

She continued to stare at him for a few seconds. His untidy overgrown hair, his own peculiar dress sense… an off white “Ethical” shirt as he called it, (when everyone would call it a Kurutha top) and a worn out pair of black jeans and a small bead necklace around his neck slightly visible; he looked like some sort of an eastern artist. She could see his bare feet horizontally under his neatly kept broad table, using a small corrugated box as a foot rest!!!

“This man is crazy”… she thought….

She focused on his face again… noticing how blank the expressions were… “Well it’s a while since anyone saw him in his true jovial spirits” she thought to herself….

She looked at his eyes… the eyes that used to radiate happiness and love… they were looking at the computer screen…. She could see the vibrant colors from the reflections of the screen playing on his square spectacles; But the gaze laid somewhere way beyond the screen itself…

She removed the headphones from her ears…. She could still faintly hear Andrea Corr asking someone to leave her breathless….

She could hear the constant blowing sound from the air conditioner… and…. A humming sound… yeah... he was humming all right… still gazing at some distant horizon unaware that she was watching him…

She listened in carefully… trying to figure out what the song was… “Cant be one of his usual songs that sounds like an aged rattling truck going out of control down on a steep bumpy hill!!”

She listened hard…. The tunes were familiar…. And… Bingo!!!!

She continued to stare in bewilderment…. She did recognize the song… she could not make a mistake on this one… “Sihina Lowak Dutuwa Mathakaii” she could almost hear the voice of Clarence singing one of her heartfelt tracks…

She looked around the office room…. Her co-worker still busy with his things… she slowly picked up her mobile phone…

“You’re thinking about her. Aren’t you??” the letters materialized on the small screen as she kept on punching the keys rapidly… she hesitated for a second before hitting the key to send it… then pressed the key….

“Message delivered” the screen displayed…. And she could hear the faint rumbling sound from his table…

She slowly turned towards her computer screen… thinking about him… remembering the times when this joyful man who radiated a lot of love and happiness at the office turned in to the quiet man who tried to cover an afflict that has slowly devoured him…

“An year?? Yeah… almost an year…”

She turned her head slowly and looked at him again… His empty gaze has broken… he was slowly picked up the phone… she could see him punching a few keys… a hint of a faint smile stretched across his lips…

She turned her head quickly and continued to stare at her screen….

Her phone beeped… without looking at him she picked up the phone….

J well… wrong music and the wrong time I suppose!” She frowned.

“GOD! Why does this man talk like this?? Can’t he converse normally? Is it that hard?” She could feel herself getting annoyed… but she knew exactly what he meant… She knew that the root of the annoyance that was building in her was not his language.

“So you are??… Right?” she typed in again and sent it without thinking twice... and put on her headphone again…

“I’m feeling nervous; trying to be so perfect; Coz I know you’re worth it; yeah………… If I can say what I want to want to say….” Avril Lavigne was singing… she touched the mouse but decided that she doesn’t want to skip this track…

The phone beeped again…

“Guess I am… to be frank I’m always thinking of her... I miss her a lot you know!!!”

She slowly let out a sigh…. Thought for a moment and started typing;

“Hey come on now… don’t be so hard on yourself… It’ll be fine. I know that it’s difficult, but life is that. Come now; please at least change the music. You’re making it hard for yourself”

Another beep. She looked at her mobile phone screen. “Oh this man!!!” she thought to herself and selected ‘Reply’ from the menu.

“Come now. You’re a nice caring person. True that things went wrong. That happens. It doesn’t mean that you should be suffering like that. You’re my good friend and it hurts to see you like that. The past is the past. There is no point holding on to it. Face the reality! Leave the past behind. You’re still there. This worries me a lot. Its time you move forward.”

It took a bit longer than to others to the “Message Delivered” to come up on the screen.

She slightly turned and looked at him from the corner of her eyes. She could see his fingers moving fast on the keypad of his mobile phone.


“Well maybe… Do you think that I’m enjoying being hurt? Do think that I don’t want out of this? I’m trying to… maybe it’s just that I need some time to get over it. But till I have a present to hold on to and a future to dream and plan about I’d be holding (or stuck) on to this past. I think that’s the human nature… It’s not like closing another deal; a deal that has gone wrong…I am in love with her… What can I do? I wish that there was a delete key where I could press. So that I can forget just like that”

Another sigh….

Well… maybe you are right… there is nothing you can do until you’re ready and willing to give up… Why can’t this man see that he’s doing nothing but wasting time? It’s time that he moves on god damn it! She thought to herself.

She stared blankly at the mobile phone screen for another few seconds wondering how to reply… not wanting to say the wrong thing and upset him even more… she leaned back and shifted her gaze to the thick white blinds that obstructed her from seeing the downpour outside; listening to Avril Lavign ending her song.

“Guess I’m wishing my life away... with these things I’ll never say…These things I’ll never say!”

Bithch or is it just human???

I went through a VERY ugly scene at office.....

Now my office; the division that I work in (although I am the only designer I have to work closely with some other people) has about four more people working in it. Young buggers not that much experienced some of em just out of the institutes.

Now I'm not a very loud person. I'm simple and most of the time in my own world with my head phone on and hogging on the PC whenever I'm not running around shouting at the people in the sample room...
So even though I interact with the people here I'm not all that connected... another reason for my "Isolation" is that those people really doesn’t fit to my taste... u know the usual office crowd for the funny is when u talk filth and crap like that!! I am good with them, I go out with them but no serious connections....

one of these people a female (we'll call her Pink), joined in about four months now... I myself interviewed her, I knew a before hand also from the fashion school from a different batch. A loud mouthed woman, fun but arrogant. Selfish and one of those know it all's. But since she knew me before hand and I helped her with the job we were somewhat close.... !!!!

A new girl joined in recently.... last week to be precise. She is and experienced person, only and year elder to me, married and has a big kid also.... (We’ll call her Red)

now since she is a mature more kind natured quiet person. We kinda got along well...

yesterday she came on the chat and asked me if she can ask me a personal question... I was like shoot it out.
Red: Do you remember the picture of the child that you showed me?? ( I showed a pic of my best friend daughter... it was one of the cutest pictures EVER!!)
Me: Yep.... what about her??
your ex- was she that girl’s mom???
(What the #*$&#(!$^!#$)!#$!!!!) What???
Red: and who is that child real father??

(It took a couple of minutes to get shake off the dizziness that I got when I banged my head on the ceiling!!!)

Me: well I wish she was.... she is such a sweet angel... but she won't be that cute if she was mine would she now???
Me: who told you that???
Red: well its not important..... I heard it....

At that point I knew that there was only one person who can say that... Pink is the only person who knew my friend coz we were at the fashion school!!!!

Me: there is only one person who could’ve said that... And I’m wondering why she said that???
Red: Who???
Well u know.. do i have to mention names???

well she knew that i know!!!!

How come u guys talked about me??? i mean what made (Pink) say such a thing??
Red: well... uh... she sort of told me that you were having an affair with her... and that u might be the father of the child..... and that I need to be a bit careful coz u have a thing for married women!!!!!!!!!!


I didn't know what to say!!!! What kinda crappy thing to say???

What did that bitch expected by doing that???? Is it just normal for people to do that a little bit of back stabbing... so that they can discredit the other person... she had no reason to be jealous or anything.... she had a man... whom she was going out with... and I've helped her in every aspect I could at the office...

I'm greatful to Red for not blindly believing it and being straight forward.... But if it was me I wouldn't have even bothered the other peorson.... would've simply asked Pink to bugger off.... after all that is their personal life... I really am not bothered about who's hitting whom as long as its not within the company and its not effecting there work!!! But it clearly has effected on the relationship of me and Red... I felt so weiered... and uncomfortable.... we're ok but it has stained the realtionship!!!

I'm terribly hurt and disturbed... it's upsetting to find out that you cant trust the people around you anymore...

Is it bitchiness or a part of just being human??? Am I missing something here????

Graffiti tag for Feather my man....

Graffity is something that has taken one of the top ranks in my interest list from sometime.... I just love the magic those artists create.... for a loooooooong time I really enjoyed doing all sorts of logo's and graphics for people.... some musical bands, shops, online geeks are on my list of prestigious list of custommers....

Combine this with Calligraphy.... the art of writing..... you create magic... Like all the other stuff that I've learned... I learned calligaprhy through books and practise... once upon a time i made myself some calligraphy pens out of bamboo.... which came out very well I must say... with various nips and tips to them....

I've created this tag for you Mr.FM... I don't know how much you'd agree with this... any amendments are possible if you want!!!

For your commenting...

First and foremost; I'm not trying to compete or to challenge or ANYTHING like that with what FM is doing...

I remembered this when I saw FMs graphic.... I did this on Friday, July 29, 2005. I pulled this out of my old files and thought i'd post it... I don't remember where i pulled the wheels out from....

Its nothing much.... a simple little changes in the original....

So people.... Pls be nice enough to comment on it... FM specially you.... Coz even though i've done it no one has ever seen it....

I'm not well.... :(

I know... I was missing for a while... I was not busy.... But I was not well... The only reason that I came to work is that because its depressing to stay at the boarding place alone.... I might've stayed back if it was a flue or something like that.... as a favour to my collegues!!!

I was compelled to stay without doing anything.... since my condition will not allow me to.... The office people were understanding coz they've seen me goining through this before and they know how much I suffer.. and probably in the back of their minds they know that I've over worked and thats the reason why I've got it back!!! but they were quite understanding and they did not put pressure on me... I was doing only the extremely needy stuff... and 90% of it I was just instructing people how to do it... Trust me; sometimes it was VERY depressing coz they cannot do it the way I want them to do it...
Now i'm on pain killers... THE things I hate... I really don't like cheating myself with painkillers... its not really good coz once I can't feel the pain.... I tend to start working again and later on suffer like nothing!!!!

The most depressing part of all is that I'll be getting a copy of Need for Speed Carbon anytime soon... and I won't be able to play it!! :( I was all set for that... I even upgraded my PC to fit to its requirements for a smooth run!!!

Anyways.. Hopefully I'll be fine in a couple of days... and be back to my normal self and be able to play NFS Carbon!!!

The True Values...........

My father was a civil servant. He was a senior person in the government.... A very distinguished person... was respected by everyone for his straight forward actions and the personality.... He really enjoyed working... and he really put all his efforts in to his work... Work was always on the top of his list... (if it ever came to the second position... well then it was my mom who took that...) and he really enjoyed the prestige of his profession... he had reached the top of the ladder... we had the government provided bungalows, vehicles (which of coz he NEVER abused-we never get to drive any of those superb vehicles simply because its was against the law.. and we never had a problem with that) and all the other luxuries.... and he enjoyed it!!!!
And all good things should come to an end...
After a few decades of service... he retired... we returned to our home in Kandy again.... which was not occupied for a long time...

now before continuing any longer... let me tell you a bit about my family...
My parents have four children... all boys... making my mom the ONLY female in the family...
Eldest son - he turned in to an army man... a captain... the second - In the electronics and telecommunication field working for an ISP as an engineer. He is married and settled down living in Kadawatha and is expecting to be a father in another few months... I’m so excited and looking forward for that!!!!
Third - that’s me... and fourth my younger brother; after doing his A/L, he took upon robes, he is Buddhist monk.

so right now everyone is out of Kandy (or Home if you consider my monk brother...)

two weeks after his retirement on a Wednesday my father called me up and asked if I'd be coming to Kandy?? now... with all business and work my father had... we never were as close as I wanted him to be with us... he always kept a distance and we couldn't joke with him and all that... he was serious and always expected to be treated with respect... still he wanted us around... He gets annoyed if the kids and the wife is not at home when he returns home after work!!

well anyway... he called me up and I thought that I'd going home that weekend...

So with all the work on my back... I took the Saturday off.... and left early on the Saturday morning...

I looked home at around 9.30 A.m. I opened the gate slowly to see my father working in the garden... the house was white-washed, garden being taken care of... it looked alive after a long time...
my father was in a pair of shorts working on a flower bed, and my mom was standing next to him with a cup of tea for him... (My mom; only a few months younger to him will retire in a few months... she is a graduate teacher...) and they were laughing about something...
they stopped laughing and turned around at the gate to see who is entered... they looked happy.... so much alive and happy... content...

I stopped dead for a moment holding the gate... I knew what I wanted in my life... in my relationships... I knew how I wanted to be when I reached towards the end of my life...

My parents were getting old... what was once beautiful and attractive is not that anymore, they're running out of energy and decaying is overtaking them... their siblings moved out of the nest and no longer with them... All they have is each other...

The meaning of the word "partner" struck like a thunderbolt... look at them... after all these years... still enjoying the companionship... still sharing everything... still being the people whom turn to.... helping each other through out in everyway to lead a good life....

I see the young couple who are married only for a couple of years and already their families are almost shattered... I've seen girls holding on to a marriage only because of their children... what are they heading in to... how are they going to survive at that stage???

at the end of the day.. all the beauty will be gone and money and all the worldly things will loose its value... all your children will have to move out and find their own way.... it'll be only you and your partner and the ability to keep each others companionship will be THE thing that keep us going...

so stop... and think for a while... what do we really want from a relationship??... What is it that we have to look for in a partner??... What do we want that the end of the days...

A few words of wisdom.....

Maya Angelou (born Marguerite Johnson April 4, 1928) is an American poet, memoirist, actress and an important figure in the American Civil Rights Movement.

Angelou is known for the autobiographical writings I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969) and All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes (1986). In most of her biographies, she intended in helping people, especially children, who were struggling in life. Her volume of poetry, Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'Fore I Die (1971) was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, and in 1993, Angelou read her poem On the Pulse of Morning written for Bill Clinton's Presidential inauguration at his request. It was only the second time in U.S. history that a poet had been asked to read at an inauguration, the first being Robert Frost at the inauguration of John F. Kennedy.

Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday.

Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.

And, there on television, she said it was "exciting." Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every her breasts.

They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first.

The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!!

Maya Angelou said this:

"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow."

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."

"I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life."

"I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life'."

"I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance."

"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back."

"I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision."

"I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one."

"I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.

People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back."

"I've learned that I still have a lot to learn."

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Another good Joke that I'd like to share....

Pedro and Maria got married. Pedro was a "man about town" so to speak, but Maria was very naive and uninformed about the birds and the bees. Pedro was a poor working man and could not afford to take time off for a honeymoon. So, that night they retired to his little shack. When Pedro was undressing Maria said:

"Oh Pedro, what is that?" Pedro being very quick thinking said:

"Maria, I am the only man in the world with one of these."

And, then, he proceeded to show her what it was for, and Maria was happy.

The next morning Pedro went off to work as usual. When he returned home that evening, Maria was on the front porch obviously upset about something.

"Pedro, you told me that you were the only man in the world with one of those, and I saw Gonzalez the gardener changing his clothes behind the shed, and he had one, too." Thinking fast, Pedro said:

"Oh, Maria, Gonzalez is my very best friend. I had two of them. So, I gave him one. He is the only other man in the world with one of those." Maria being very stupid accepted his answer and they did their thing again that night.

Pedro went off to work again the next morning and when he returned home, Maria was very upset, stamping her foot on the porch. Pedro said: "Maria, what is the matter now?"

"Pedro, you have given Gonzalez the best one !!"

After a looooooong few stressing weeks........ we're done!!!!

Well after a loooooooong few weeks of hard work we've finally come to an end of the developments of one of the most difficult accounts the we have....

This time it consisted five different Ranges that expands to about 22 different styles (without the color breakdowns!!!) Uses Embroidery, prints, embosses leather/PVC synthetics/Cotton Canvas/Linen and for all this... a little less than a month to source the material, develop and do the patterns and do the samples...

The last two samples are almost done, we've checked packed, ready to courier!!!

After all the pain that we went through... the grey matter I burned, sleepless nights and running around the whole bloody country side looking and developing the material and other things needed.... its finally done... Usually this particular custommer comes up with weired stuff that is almost impossible to do!!!

Despite all the blood and tears.... do you know the beauty of this job??? you scroll down and you'll see....

these are a few of the items that we develped... Now.... I'm not supposed to publish these... but then again... I wanted you guys to see...

I don't know if it shows properly but all these items are leather!!! we have one ladies Hand bag, a gent's bag (canvas and leather) a unisex leather tooled belt and a gent's belt... well its just a few of the designs we developed!!! Hopefully no one will see these and copy em coz these are meant for A/W 07 ( a matter of confidentiality in designs).... so thats why I've posted small crappy pics....

Now lets see what the buyer will say... we have our fingers crossed!!!

It's my birthday today!!!!!!

Well... time do fly by.....

Not long ago, I finished my A/L and was thinking what to do!! I t tell you.. I was clueless what I wanted to become... I remember thinking to myself what would i be when I'm 25 or something like that!!!
and when I hit 25... it was funny coz I noticed that nothing much has changed... or maybe the change was so sublte that I've not noticed it... (when i come to think of it... since I'm the one who went through it... I might have not noticed it...)

now I've finished the 26th year of my life....

I'm confused... I still love playing PC games.... I spend all my money in upgrading the PC buying gadgets and stuff.... not quite mature according to others... :) but then again.... who can justify??

and in the other hand... I have plans for myself..... those I'm working towards... at least i'm trying to....

well anyway... its my birthday... HAPPY BIRTHDAY THACKSHILA..........

Saturday, October 21, 2006


He sat still, His curly hair untidy as ever… His long sharp eyes piercing through the square shaped spectacles…..not amputating his gaze away from her pretty face; the prettiest eyes that he has seen… trying to feel what he really felt inside… Love?? Hatred?? A complicated mixture of it??… What is this empty feeling, the numbness that prevents him from feeling anything but a blunt hurt??? He blinked once and spent another thirty seconds trying to decipher his own feelings….

The refreshing warm smell of the hot chocolate, light soft music and the soft lit orange walls made his mind race back to a past that he didn’t know if he wants to remember or forget!! He slowly leaned back to the comfortable leather sofa and closed his eyes… blinding himself from her pretty face… letting his mind race back through time… remembering the very moment that triggered the whole chain reaction.

How fast time flies??? He focused back at her pretty face…. “Angel”… he called her as he did all this time… trying to see her reaction… the numbness of the mind came over him again… he opened his eyes half way and the uncertainty that clouded him made him closed them again… scared to see her reaction…

His racing mind stopped at a point of time…. The rainy afternoon, dimly lit room…. She looked back at him…. “If you don’t like to call her in her short name that everyone else uses…. What would you call her??”

Leaning back on the sofa with eyes still closed… a pleasant smile lightened his face after a long time… in his mind before his eyes he could see the memories play like a short movie….

He tilted his face slightly… with a smile spreading on his face… his eyes with the same piercing look with full of affection that overwhelmed her heart….

“I’ll call her angel” he said softly….

Still looking at her he could see her heart leaping with joy… her angel eyes giving away all the details of what went through her mind… he felt a warm feeling that filled him with joy…. The happiness to see her happy… a satisfaction and a rewarding feeling of being the person that made her happy…

He let out sigh… tilted his head down… and opened his eyes… the steam that was once proudly sending the sweet aroma of the hot chocolate was plummeting…

He slowly picked the mug and let a small sip… letting the warm taste of cocoa to refresh his whole body…

He slowly kept the mug back on the coaster… leaned back closing his eyes again… letting his mind wander again...

“You left.... leaving me here alone…..” she said in a complaining voice….

“Sorry sweetie it was an emergency… this is real important….” There was a small silence… he felt his heart getting heavier with every passing moment….

“Driver…. Turn the vehicle around!! I forgot something important….” “Liar” he thought to him self…. “What am I doing…?” He asked himself…. But somewhere deep down he knew what was about to happen….

He jumped out of the vehicle…. A small drizzle was coming down…. He ran in…

“Hey...” he called out.

She turned around in surprise…

“You came back?”

“Yeah… told them that I forgot something…” he chuckled… gazing at her angel eyes… again they were talking to him…

His mind spoke to him... "yeah you did forget something..."

They stepped closer to each other… and a bit closer…. He knew… she knew… he could feel her warm breath on him…. They closed their eyes…. Letting themselves to get carried away for a beautiful two seconds… letting the warmth of the first kiss to flood there mind and bodies…

She withdrew.... “This is not right….” “I don’t know… I don’t know if this is right…..”

She turned around and looked at him with a plea in her eye….

“Its ok angel… I understand….” He didn’t want think if it’s right or wrong… knowing that it’s just a beginning… whatever it is…. He had his mind set….

He opened his eyes… the hot chocolate still laying in front of him... the dimly lit orange walls still looking the same as it was back then…

He looked at the empty seat in front of him… wishing that she was still there with him… he wanted to tell her that it’s been an year…
“Yes angel… it’s been a year since we’ve first kissed…”

The same numbness started to fill his heart…. He leaned back and closed his eyes… still not knowing if he wants to remember or forget….

Pissu Kella!!!!!

I'm quite sure you people got this forwarded mail (with an attachment of the above name) with a video clip of a young girl talking to the guy who recorded it!!!!

I'm quite positive that this young pup who is nothin more than 16 was recorded by her boyfriend... the way she speaks is quite genuine and hardly can be an act.... What she says in the clip, the conversation that they have does sound genuine... that kinda coverse and lingo can be heard among average teens!!!

For a lot of people that video clip was humerous and entertaining!!! but what I saw was a total disaster that draws a huge dark cloud over that girls life... her whole future!!!! Whatever said and done this is still Sri Lanka and people are still narrow minded and naive.... and above all traditional.... and women; (maye not as much in India, and even though its getting better by the day) are constantly looked down upon at!!! its ok for a man to go around doing all the things... but a moment a woman does something it becomes a huge social issue (Now people i'm talking about the "average" people in SL)

This asshole who recorded the video and publizised it has totally done the deal... I won't be surpized if the word has already reached her people and half of her realtives has already seen the clip!!! coz that kinda news has wings in Sri Lanka.... Its a terrible way to detray the very woman who loves you.... she must've trusted him alot... thats why she must've allowed him to capture her on video like that...

So girls pls watch out... the very person whom you love and trust might mis-use it and can bring the doom in your life simply because he is an insensitve p***k who really doesn't value or respect you..... specially you young ones.... people can be real jack asses sometimes!!!

and all you people who recieved it.... pls stop circulating the clip... it might be fun for all you guys.... but it just might ruin the life of that girl..... so please delete it.... you can find other means to have fun!!

- Five people forwarded this to me... one person from Aussie and One from UK, and trust me in all the mails the list of the people whom they've forward it to was huge!!! - that is how far it has gone!!!!!

To the best school of all......

The Following mail forwarded to me by one of my batch mates...
I'm not trying to promote the school I love.... but want to show my gratitude to her by saying to the world what wonders she has done to us!!! It indeed is "The Best school of all"

A friend and fellow Old Thomian, related an experience he had last week which I thought was truly worthwhile recounting to you.

"The highlight of my holiday last week in Aucklandwas watching the touring Trinity College Rugby team play and represent the school at large. What fine ambassadors these young men were to their school and country.

I first met with them one evening when our hosts in Aucklandinvited us to accompany them to the hostel where the team was billeted. I was introduced to the TCK Rugby captain for next year, a Wanigasekera boy and what fine manners he displayed as he conducted himself in conversation and discussion. The TCK team had come to New Zealandto get experience ahead of next year's season. This therefore meant that senior players who had contributed to the success of the just concluded season were not able to travel. This was not a trip for fun and reward for a great season but as a tour to gain experience for becoming better for next year!! The team manager's son who had been a senior was also not ruled to travel since this was for building next year's side and not for reward! Apparently when the TCK team walked through the immigration at Aucklandairport they cut such striking figures that they caught the attention of most around at that time.

The team itself played two games, losing one narrowly and winning one by a huge margin. The Rugby Skills displayed was fantastic especially the way the team including the backs would set up for rucking and 'phase' plays. The team would go into several phases and engage the opposition completely especially the larger built 'Kiwi' schoolboys. The backs would run the ball with excellent running skills which would have made any Super 14 team stop and take notice! After the second game, the young captain made a very good speech thanking their hosts for the arrangements and the Auckland RFU and the NZRFU for their support. He also wished the losing opposition and congratulated the victorious TCK team and did all of this like a seasoned veteran!

No doubt the highlight of the tour was when the TCK team had been invited to be present and take part in a practice session with the Auckland Air New Zealand National Provincial Championship team and much to the team's delight and luck had Graham Henry, the All Blacks coach who was also present to watch the practice, spend 30-45 minutes in a coaching session with the TCK team at the scrum machine!!! After this the TCK forwards were allowed the opportunity to practice line out skills against the Auckland team which had the All Black lock forward Ali Williams jumping for the ball with All Blacks Hooker Keven Meelamu throwing the ball into the line out!! And the TCK backs had the opportunity of practicing with the Aucklandbacks which included All Black wingers Joe Rokocoko and Doug Howlett !!! What amazing experience this would have been to a young team of schoolboy rugby players. The team also went on to watch a quarter final NPC match between Aucklandand Bayof Plenty.

This team will be strong force to play against for any school team in the next season.
The parents and Old Boys of TCK in Sri Lankaand New Zealandand possibly elsewhere had helped with putting the tour together."

That was his account. For our part, the Old Thomians here in New Zealand, hope we can organize ourselves just as well sometime in the not too distant future.

With Best Wishes to all….



ey yo.. a shout out to ma man thak! happy bloggin!

and thats how fast the weather can change!!!

yeah.. not even two hours after me whining about the warm weather and the beating sun.... the sky turned the opposite colors and started a heavy rain....(well it was happenning for the past few days - rainig in the evenning) yeah it was raining cats and dogs and kittens and puppies!!!!

I'm not complaining about rain.... I never did... I alwasys enjoyed a little bit of rain.... but when it started raining right at the time when I was gonna step out of the office.... well that sucks!!!!

Still I'm happier and better off with rain (Yeah I know that most of you will think that I'm crazy or something...) but than hot burning sun where you get barbequed alive and start sweating all over.... I really won't mind getting a little wet...... !!!

One messed up thing about raining in Colombo is the stupid roads getting flooded!! I mean its THE most crapiest thing I've ever seen... when it rains all the water goes in the road not in the drains... obviousely the water cannot go in the drains coz the stupid drains has got blocked by all the stuff that those retards who live along the roads have dumped in the drain... and no one is there to clean them!!! Ultimately instead of cars we need amphibious vehicles or boats to go around on the roads once it starts raining!!!! Its terrible when you have to walk in the dirty water the drains and the gutters are flooding out.... YUK!!!!!

Shining Sun beating on us!!!!

and the 43rd week of the year 2006 begins....
Woke up early in the morining to the musical voice of my land lady, a sixty year-old ex-CID lady who was kind enough to rent me a room out of her house!!! Not the best way to start a Monday morning!!!

Unlike most of the days at work I had to run around the whole colombo today.... One remarkable thing about these days is the weather!!!! The sun seriously is having something against us these days.... I had to go out both in the morning and the evenning and I had one hell of a time walking on the steets looking for some material that I wanted for the new collection that I'm working on!! (Yeah the designers have go walk around Bamba, Pettah and Pamunuwa in search of materials, hardware and other stuff sometimes... I'd spare the details of my mega shopping blast!!!) And Mr.Sun was not helping me at all... it seriously was like some kind of invisible laser guns shooting down from the heavens to burn us all....
now after about two hours after returning from my shopping fiesta I'm having a HUGE migrane... in a couple of minutes my head is gonna burst in to thousand pieces!!! I went through the same shit on Saturday afternoon as I took a bus from Pettah to Kandy... it was terrible... but its nothing but the warm radiation of the sun and the bright light that really knocked me off giving me severe migranes...

One hell of a monday................

Working on Saturdays.....

Yeah..... I know how you feel even when you think about it!!!!!

It is THE most annoying and irritating thing in my life..... Five days a week we work from 8.30 in the morning till at least 6.30 - 7.00 in the evenning.... and we have to work halfday on the the Saturday....
Now THAT sucks!!! I mean don't we have a life??? What are these people thinking??? We have things to do... there are stuff to be bought, laundry to attend to, Rooms and apartments to be cleaned, friends to go and spend some time with, and those thing are important... I rarely go home!! (coz I'm from Kandy) and I rarely spend a 24 hours with my parents or my borthers...

People at the office thinks that work is the most important thing!!! but when I really think about it.... Its not.... two years back I got sick and the doctor recomemded that I should get a weeks break from work and rest... I went to those people with the medical, but they refused it... after two days I collapsed at work..... my family went through shit.... it was only them who were there for me.... my very close friends, neighbhours and my family. I was thinking if something happened to me that made me unable to work anymore.... I'd become an asset gone bad... they'd replace me with another person... but my family and friends... they're the ones whom I'd have to depend on...
So I always try to be there for them when they need us.... coz we're all they got and they're all we've got....

Whats upsettig about today coz its my elder bro's birthday and my sis-in-laws birthday today.... all of them are in Kandy while aI'm stuck at work.... I have so much of work there is no way that I can go till late in the evenning....

Jumping the Gun......

Have you ever come across situations where you jump the gun and give everything away??? and messed everything up???

well i'm quite sure almost everyone has gone through that atleast once in your life time!!!
Check the following story....

A guy goes to the supermarket and notices a beautiful blonde woman wave
at him and say hello. He's rather taken aback, because he can't place where he knows her from. So he says, "Do you know me?"
To which she replies, "I think you're the father of one of my kids."
Now his mind travels back to the only time he as ever been unfaithful to his wife and says, "My God, are you the stripper from my bachelor party that I laid on the pool table with all my buddies watching, while your partner whipped my butt with wet celery and then stuck a carrot up my butt???"
She looks into his eyes and calmly says, "No, I'm your son's math's teacher."

For my friend....

Nayomi Apsara.....
I first met her at one of my previouse working places.... I was doing the DTP, Video editing stuff there... ( It was a video studio) She was sent there to be trained in the graphic design, you know to work with me and learn in the process...... and I met one of the best friends that I ever had (and have).... She was as equally as crazy like me and we did have a nice super time... specially comparing to the other loosers who worked there... we very well prefferd each others company...

After some time of working together, I took upon studies again..... I started the fashion design classes that lead me to my current career and moved out from that place where I was working... I was consumed by fashion design course... I was eternally busy running around trying to finish the assignments and all... which gradually lead us not to meet eachother like we used to... later on she also moved out.. started working became busy in her own things and we completely lost touch....

I started my work... moved to Colombo..... and for lies sometime last week I came across the familiar name in Skype...

Frinedship is great... No matter how far or distansed you might get... withing minutes it turns to be just like the same old thing we used to have..... all you ever have to do it to update ur selves... it can be so unconditional....

So this one goes out to my good friend..... who is doing very well now.... Congrads my friend... I wish you well... and thanks for being my friend.....

A Matter of Life and Death...

Iron Maiden's new album........... I got my hands on it...... AMAZING shit..... Bruce Dickinson and Steve Harris rocking the place as usual....
This is their 16th album since the release of their first album in 1980... truely... prooving to be that they are the heavy metal war-horses.

10 brilliant tracks.... Since i've heard all their music and know most of them by heart.... I can see some resemblance in the music from their previous albums... it is the Maiden style.... and it rocks....

Oh I'm loving this....

hey u Maiden lovers out there... get your hands on this master piece.... it is worth every single penny and a bit more you spend on it....

Coming to an end of a tough day!!!

Well .... its fifteen minutes to eitght..... and am still at office... what a way to live... and above all I have to go to meet some buddies after this.... gosh am i tired or what???

Then again thats how life is now... have to live with it....

These days are hectic.... loads and loads to do... and not enough time to attend to it all... I wish I also had 6 faces and 12 hands like god Katharagama... then I could make myself more efficiant... and able to attend to multiple tasks.....

wonder when i'd be able to get myself outa here!!!!

Hellow world.....

Inspired by my friend Chathu, I decided I'd also start a blog... Hoping that I can express and share my self and my view with rest of the people around me, known and unknown....
