Kapruka.com‘ does not miss an opportunity to showcase and market their amazing cakes — albeit these cakes (luckily for I) only being available in Sri Lanka.

Given that I have shared many of their cakes with you over the years, I know that there are many among you who like to see the latest, mouth-watering temptations making the rounds in Sri Lanka. So, here are the Sinhala New Year (Aluth Avurudda) 2019. In addition to cakes, they also do traditional food ‘hampers’ for the New Year. I will try and showcase those tomorrow.

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.


Happy Sinhala New Year 2019.

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

Enjoy. Rejoice.

Piano Player At Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center On Valentine’s Day 2019.

by Anura Guruge


Click for YouTube video.


There are many nice things about the ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. They go to GREAT lengths to make it NOT look and feel like a hospital. I kid you not. I have spent a LOT of time at DHMC over the last 13-years. For one, Teischan was born there, and I was there for 3-days on the trot for that.

They have a lot of great art and a number of grands strategically positioned around the rambling campus. This is the one closest to the main entrance. Anybody is welcome to play them, Typically volunteers set out to regale the folks. This appeared to be one of them. Fairly good chance he works there.

This was quite early in the morning, i.e., around 9:30am. But, it was Valentine’s Day. So, it was good. I liked him. You can hear me clapping.

Enjoy.

THE Cutest Thing You Will See On Valentine’s Day 2019 — Guaranteed.

Come on. Let me hear you say ‘Aaahhhh!’ — with feeling.

Doesn’t it warm the cockles of your heart.

A sculpture at the ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. Despite how special it is, this is tucked away, on the 5th floor (depending on how you count the floors), off the beaten-track. I was exploring and bumped into it.

Wanted to share with you given it is Valentine’s Day and all.

Mandala Valentine’s Day Card (2019) — By Teischan (12).

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


This was my Valentine’s Day card — created by her on the day while we were gone for an appointment. As with all her work — it is pretty amazing. She can now dash these off in no-time. The  blinking-beautiful Chinese umbrella, which she finished last week, however, remains her current masterpiece until she decides that she wants to surpass that.

Flowers Galore For 2019 Valentine’s Day — At Concord ‘Market Basket’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and ENJOY.


YOU know I can’t resist taking pictures of flowers — particularly so during the height of winter in New Hampshire when the temperature is in the 20s FAHRENHEIT, we have a few inches of snow on the ground and a foot or more of fresh snow on the way.

These were at ‘Market Basket‘ in Concord, New Hampshire. To be honest, I didn’t take pictures of all the flowers. It was quite busy and I didn’t want to get in the way of love-struck folk trying to buy flowers.

But, please ENJOY. Happy Valentine’s Day 2019.

P.S., I did buy two bunches of daffodils — that being the Welsh in I.

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.

Click to ENLARGE.


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.
