Cute, Bear-Themed, All Sri-Lankan Valentine’s Video By ‘Kapruka.com’ — Of Cake Fame.

by Anura Guruge


 


Kapruka.com‘ is branching out. A first for them, and I am sure there will be many more down the road.

Cute. A tad chintzy, but that is the Sri Lankan-way. Definitely a good start.

This was the write-up that came in the e-mail promoting the video. Classic Sri Lankan English. Not even Trump can beat our English. Enjoy.

The ‘New Year 2019’ cakes from December.

Just in the last ten weeks, or so, I have done three posts on the seriously impressive cakes, available in Sri Lanka (and just in Sri Lanka), thanks to ‘Kapruka.com‘.

These cakes are for Valentine’s Day — and that makes me GRIN for multiple reasons. This is a totally new holiday to Sri Lanka. Growing up, we had never heard of it. C’est la vie. All to do with the HUGE, multi-million (I suspect) Sri Lankan diaspora in the West. They are hell bent on sharing their holidays with those back home. Nothing wrong. Makes a lot of people very happy and Karuka very rich.

In case you are wondering I am nothing but a customer when it comes to Kapruka. Though I give them huge amount of publicity I get nothing from them. That is OK. They have never asked me to do these posts. I do them for YOU.

The ‘New Year 2019’ cakes from a few weeks ago.

Click to ENLARGE.


Just in the last few weeks I have done two posts on the seriously impressive cakes, available in Sri Lanka (and just in Sri Lanka), thanks to ‘Kapruka.com‘.

These cakes are for a Tamil holiday, ‘Thai Pongal’. It is not one I am familiar with. But, the cakes sure look good. So, I wanted to share them with you. Enjoy.

Oh, in case you are wondering, ‘Thai Pongal’, in 2019, starts on January 15 and goes on for 3 to 4 days. It is a harvest celebration.

Some Seriously Impressive ‘New Year 2019’ Cakes By ‘Kapruka.com’ For Sri Lanka.

Exactly a fortnight ago I raved about their 2018 Christmas cakes. Now it is their quite impressive New Year cakes.

I have said it before, I will say it again: “I wish these cakes, at these prices, were available in the U.S.“. Alas, not so. They are only available for delivery within Sri Lanka.

Well, I rave about these Kapruka cakes at least once year, either at Christmas, Sinhalese New Year or Easter. Do a search on ‘Kapruka‘ on this blog if you don’t believe me.

Over the years, when more of my relatives were alive, I used to be a real good Kapruka customer. Would order multiple cakes per year. I don’t avail myself to their services that much anymore — though I did send a cake in September.

The cakes have quite noticeably fancier and, alas, more expensive over the years! The latter was inevitable. Still, cheap compared to U.S. prices since delivery is included.

Just wanted to share these with you to inspire you.

For all the publicity that I give them, Kapruka, in typical Sri Lankan fashion, has never said thank you. C’est la vie.

by Anura Guruge


Delivering products in Sri Lanka since as long as I can remember.

Click to access ‘Kapruka.com’.


Fancy and supposedly delicious cakes,
albeit only delivered in Sri Lanka,
has always been Kapruka’s justifiable
claim to fame.

They keep on getting fancier each year.

Here are some of the 2017 offerings.


Happy Sinhala New Year 2017.

This Friday (Sri Lanka time),
April 14.

The 3rd New Year of the Year for I.
But you can never have too many.

Enjoy. Rejoice.

Banned In U.S. Hoverboards Being Sold In Sri Lanka, At A Discount, By Kapruka.com.

by Anura Guruge


hoverboards

Click to access ‘Kapruka.com’.


 

Given that I used to be a stellar customer, sending multiple cakes to Sri Lanka multiple times a year for multiple years, I still regular e-mails from Kapruka. I do enjoy seeing what they are up to.

This hoverboard  item, cutely relabelled as ‘Smart Drifting Scooter‘, caught my eye.

It was the same one that I had tried to buy last Christmas and was foiled. Except I paid EXACTLY $100 more.

This is funny.

Two things to consider. Most Sri Lankan houses, that could afford such a scooter, would be built out of concrete. So not as flammable as U.S. wooden structures.

Two Sri Lankan lives, being Third World, are still considered more expendable.

But this is NOT cricket.

Bit naughty of Kapruka. They are NOT ‘playing the white man‘ — and they should be.
