My mum learnt how to cook various ceylonese dishes, observing my grandma. Back then she mostly did the menial work like cutting up and grinding stuff. You could say, she was sous chef to the chef (grandma) and she started … Continue reading
She couldn’t recall exactly what time she woke up, but it was to the crowing of the neighbourhood roosters and not an alarm clock. They were extremely loud she said. She ironed her uniform the day before. Once adorned, she … Continue reading
Asking my 76 Year old Mum About her Reaction to the Queen’s Passing and About Life Under British Colonial Rule
What follows is in my mum’s words: When I read the news about the queen I thought she looked much younger than her years. I was impressed that she didn’t age that much. I only wish she could live until … Continue reading

Just read this Time article and watch the video to see what I mean. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cw1uLVSl1Y] The mum actually seems quite rude from the video taken at a recent concert in England. She must have been causing quite a ruckus before … Continue reading
Not because she took her daughter Violet on a horse drawn carriage ride in New York City, but because she seems to genuinely enjoy being with her kid. Jennifer is one star who seems down to earth and unfazed by … Continue reading
My Apple iMac is gorgeous. I was yearning for it for years before I got it, and there is no question that I love it. But you know what? It’s been hurting my eyes. The backlight on the screen, even … Continue reading
This is the video of Lindsay responding to the judge. I just can’t help feeling sorry for her as she bursts into tears and I feel this is due to various ‘yes’ people surrounding her and bad parenting from both … Continue reading
