For a long time now, I associated travelling with inconveniences. It was the hassle of planning, hassle of packing (then unpacking and doing laundry once you are back), hassle of leaving work behind (and then coming home to realise that they never missed you after all - insecurities!), hassle of visa and nonsense if it … Continue reading Welcome to my Year of Travel
Because suddenly, the letters were no longer adequate, I had to add something more. This could range from a fridge magnet (with of course the padded envelopes then) or to even confetti. I still do the confetti because even as annoying as it is to clean up afterwards, the sheer joy of having little pieces of shiny paper fall on as you unfold the letter is everything magical.

But unless you live in Sri Lanka, it would be difficult to understand as … Continue reading This Millennial in Colombo
It's raining and I'm miserable. I wanted to Give Thanks later today but with yesterday's remnants of awful rains and this morning's gloomy skies, trust me, I feel grateful to no one. I know I sound wretchedly insane to be saying what I am saying given the continuous weeks of mad heat but I was (am) … Continue reading Non-Motivation Tuesday
