Yes I found what I was looking for. The series on TrishawMafia by  Javajones need to besuggested for T100SLBPBP (sounds like some kind of SL tea!). I think given the size of blog posts, this might be best concatenated into a single article, of course with author and the Judgesof Top 100 Sri Lankan blog posts book projectapproval. 

The other posts I like from JJ is the series he did on Buddhism in the line of four noble truths.

There’s this Mafia in town

More on that Trishawmafia

The Trishawmafia episode ends – for now

I seem to be entangled with driving in Sri Lanka. But before I shake things out, I would like to suggest JavaJones’ Driving in Sri Lanka for Cernos Top 100 Sri Lankan Blog Posts project.

I am going have more of Javas posts.

Cerno started Sri Lanka’s Top hundred blog posts book project, and I think it is a great idea. Then Cerno gave us instructions what we could do and beginning with RD, many have commented and posted about what they think as good posts. I read a few blogs when I joined the SL blogsphere, from the man himself that I thought were great posts. Even though there are many more posts that I read, the following two stands out. I will write later on about other bloggers and their posts that made me think, laugh or jump up and down (Or all those at once). Here goes; (I hope it is ok to nominate more than one post)

Colombo driver’s survival guide – mystery of the coloured lights

Vegetarian’s guide to insecure meat eaters

Today one of my friends directed me to this prodigy playing guitar. I too was directed towards piano in my early years and this is one of the songs I learned and it took me years to perfect it. Then when I learned to play the bass, it took another few years play it properly so that I could play front of an audiance. This kid is amazing and I have been watching some of his videos and I am sure you will to once you listen to him. He plays many artists out of his head! where I still need the score pasted on every surface to play anything. This really will humble many.

This another but there are lot of his videos on YT. Enjoy!

His YT Page.

This is just to say thanks to scrumpulicious or scumps as I usually address her. Somehow I managed to miss a bunch of her posts! May be a sign of getting busy. I even missed a post where she said that I could be a gentleman! and it was not only me, she praised a bunch of bloggers. Yes You did start a fire, in a corner of my heart! Then she told us of a fund raising she did! Funny because I was involved in a such event helping children in and around wars. I got auctioned off for 5 grand. But then Miss Fukuoka outbid the lady for $5100. Man I was in the clouds!

Well I thought this post is about Scumps! Alright

Scumps, reading you is like an expresso after a very nice meal, you complete it! Salute!expresso

When My father went about taking care of my new house and the garden, which is pretty large in city standards, added a bunch of trees to already an ample collection of trees. He knows I love flowers and Hanami, or flowering time in spring, and carefully added few Ume (Plum) Momo (Peach) and Sakura trees. We already had some granite slates (pretty Big) from SL shipped and now lays under the Sakura tree. The trees were transplanted from a land my parents own in Oregon and they are ready to bloom. So come April, Miss Fukuoka and I will drink a cup of sake under the sakura trees. Usually Plum blooms first followed by Peach and ends with Sakura. Ume is already flowering and here it is. I did try to focus but iPhone decided to focus on the sky! 😉 I will post other trees as they bloom!

I have been eying tuk tuks by RD and I absolutely love them. I already managed to send my old Grandma Shopping for them and I saw her packing them last night via video! I should have them in a few days! Cerno managed to take me to a childhood wonder of star gazing (which I still do with the same enthusiasm ) yes, sky is a wonderful place. 

Indi is /was having a poetic evening at the barefoot and hope the Arrack Malum tasted good. We got some Arrack at home and I would like to know how to make malum with it.  But he did not reply to my comment. He went on to write about flesh forks and a lesson in eating rice with hands and fingers. I tried it a few times and curry ended up in my elbows, of course I was gathering rice with fingers and trying to eat / lick off my palm. But I am very good with Chopsticks, I can even eat curry with them!

Anyway I need to raise a glass for Dinidu as the guy is being brave like most real journalists do. I admire his courage. It is disturbing to see how people value others. I do not know why one sees others life as less valuable. Not only in SL, around here in Bay area as well.

Noorie did a II can continues with it. But lately it is more thinking! The Missing Sandwich is happy with her new pain killer. The play seem to be a fun one and Shakespeare himself would have loved it.  ViceUNVersa wants a new country! Me too!!

But Javajones asked question that send shivers through my back bone. I am still a child at heart and easily mingle with children. As you know all the children nowadays  are diiferent from when we you were children. I had to deal with a teenager who was a child of close family friends of ours. In many peoples eyes, she was a bad girl, stupid girl, drug addict and such things. But none bothered to see what the real problem was. After a few talks and two bike rides, she realized that there are other ways to get away from boredom and frustration. Just needed a nudge in the right direction. Now she is registered in a dance class and rides her bike everyday to get high on pure oxygen. People around her, including her parents beginning to see her for what she is! It is hard to draw lines and make theories regarding children. Let children be children. My parents did! 🙂

See you later, I am about to leave for the mountains (there is a big storm coming our way) to play with snow!

I am a bit busy these days so there were no posts for some time. But after reading all those posts,  RD at the  GLF  and since he does not look kindly to my long absences,  I decided to post some thing specially for him!  Pure,  awesomeness packaged into a 10 minute clip. (You can watch more if you want.) Don’t Miss the Drummers! They are part of my campus life!

They have filmed a bollywood movie in Berkeley running and dancing through places and streets very familiar to me. They even run up my street (old house) at one point. I was sad because I did not know when they filmed this. I would have loved to catch some of the love with my camera. Sometimes it happens that I do not see these things. Once they were filming a documentary and I walked through the set without even knowing it. Later on someone noticed me on the film. Only then I knew! But this is special, even I could not miss such a great energy filled event !!!
