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.

Did You Know That People Were Betting That Trump Would Spew More Than 3.5 Lies In His Oval Office Speech!

This is amazing. Hard to credit. Beyond the PALE.

This is, rightly or wrongly, the U.S. President. Not the President of Sri Lanka or some other ‘developing’ country. The President of the United States of America.

Americans openly betting that he would LIE more than 3.5 times. LIE more than 3.5 times. Even one lie is too many.

And THEY WON. They won big.

The Fact Checkers at ‘The Washington Post‘ reckoned that he lied AT LEAST 6 times!

Sacré bloody bleu! 

Yes, we know he lies, BUT folks now taking it for granted.

This is SAD.

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.

I will say it again and again: this is so stupid, pointless and childish.

We used to have grown up, astute politicians. Now they have these mornonic, puerile clowns. This two-month fiasco was so pointless. Just cost money.

I despair.

But, at least it makes Donald Trump look good — which is a MIRACLE.

The Incomparable BBC Expands On My Theme Of Sri Lanka’s Political Soap Opera.

Click to access my post from last week.


As the BBC also points out, what is happening in Sri Lanka is beyond the pale. It is even beyond what even Donald Trump could conjure.

Just puerile. Plain puerile. I am so, so glad that I am no longer a Sri Lankan citizen! I would be so ashamed. This is a country with a proud heritage.

This is unbecoming.

‘Temple Trees’, the Prime Minister’s official residence — I know it well. I have been there a number of times, with my adoptive father, when I was a child. I even had lunch there once.

I will keep you posted.
