Weekend - Family & ...

I went home to Kandy almost after a month. Appachchi (father) is few weeks in to his retirement and still finding it a bit hard to settle down. My loku akka (first elder sister) gave birth to a baby boy last Monday. It’s my first nephew. But I couldn’t visit them this weekend so I’m yet to see him. Amma’s (Mother’s) blood pressure was unstable during my stay. But was some what ok by Sunday eve.

Warm it up...

Warming the scalp with my tea cup

I expected it to be difficult to go under direct sunlight. My thought was since I never see sunlight during weekdays it won’t be much of a problem... Little did I thought about ~15°C air blown directly at my bold scalp 12+ hours per day.

Currently I have a wet nose and sleeping issues... I mean... before I went bold I was comfortable with a 7h sleep. But now it doesn’t seem to be enough.

Today I blocked AC ventilation holes which are directly above my head with paper but it didn’t help much. So here I am.. using my cup of tea to warm it up a bit...

Ugly -> Uglier

I shaved my head... I look uglier than before... but, hey, no one really liked me for my looks... (if any one ever liked me ;) ).

It feels much comfortable this way and I don’t have to worry about hair.. I wouldn’t have bad hair days for some time... if I like it... would continue to shave the head.
I’m still to experience mid day sun bold headed...

Solve this puzzle

  • I have a Dialog mobile phone connection.
  • When I’m in my cubicle I don’t receive signals.
  • When I move 30 feet from my cubicle I receive signals at full strength.
  • The person next to my cubicle who also has a Dialog connection receives signals at full strength.
  • When I insert my SIM in to another phone it too receives signals at full strength at my cubicle.
  • When I insert another SIM of a different provider, I get signals at full strength to my phone, at my cubicle.
  • When I insert another Dialog SIM to my phone it behaves the same as my SIM.
  • So the isolation is My Phone + Dialog Connection + My Cubicle just doesn’t seem to work together.

This started to happen from mid last week. What could be wrong and where??

A Guide to Buddhist Monasteries and Meditation Centres in Thailand

I'm planning to go on a vacation during december... Thought of India and Thailand. So searched google for "thailand buddhist monasteries" and found this excellent guide to thai monasteries and meditation centres.
At first I was planning to go alone, but when I told it to my sister (chuti akka) she wanted to join in as well... Still don't know how it would turn around. But I'm dead serious about this... Hope this project I'm currently working on would finish by then.

Can't think of a title

Every breath I take deep in to my soul
Fills my mind with memories of you
In my thoughts I always draw
That sweetened smile I always love

How many lives before I win your love?

I just wanted to whisper,
Sitting next to a camping fire,
In no man’s land so far away,
With only you and me to talk,
Looking at the stars in the sky,
Drinking tea you and I just made,
On a cold - cold joyful night,
How deeply I’m in love with you!

And I wanted to tell you,
Walking in a sandy beach,
Looking at the dusk light hiding out,
Behind the waves of great blue sea,
Feeling the cold of the evening breeze,
Looking at your smile that warm my heart,
Moving my fingers through your hair,
How madly I’m in love with you!

And I wanted to ask you,
Just after a candle light dinner,
Listening to an old love song,
Enjoying the dessert and smiling alone,
Looking in your eyes I fell in love,
Taking your hand and smiling again,
Gathering my words, getting lost in thoughts,
“My darling would you be mine for life”?

But now my darling I just wonder,
Counting the stars in the sleepless nights,
With an aching heart that feel so heavy,
Looking at the flowers and listening to birds,
Closing my eyes and drawing your smile,
Listening to the cries of country songs,
Smiling alone with memories of gold,
How many lives before I win your love?
