    Reducing marriageable age to 16 is not suitable for the third world countries like Sri lanka because the children under 16 years is not fully developed as far as I am concerned-CHANDRAN- via http://www.dailymirror.lk/DM_BLOG/Sections/frmNewsDetailView.aspx?ARTID=57572

    wondering if the people selling durian and rambutan on Havelock Road (near Police Park) at around midnight every single day are for real.

    Honestly, it seems like there is very little traffic on the road – but those guys are out there at all hours. I find this weird.

      I’ve heard several cases of undercover CID officers hanging around Colombo in this mann**%^*#@@ ***NO CARRIER***

        Say, selling durian at that time would help the drunk fellows right? prevent cops from getting too close to you for a sniff?

    Well, it appears that I will be playing host to a Brit of Asian extraction, a southern European and a Chinese dude next weekend. What (besides getting them all completely hammered on Old Reserve) can one do to entertain this crowd?

      I was thinking a pub crawl would be nice and traditional, if a bit exhausting. Perhaps Cricket Club, In on the Green (note single n) and Galadari in quick succession?

      Sounds like a cunning plan. What are they going to eat though?

      Ooof. They’ll probably want to eat “traditional Sri Lankan food”. Where does one procure such animals in this town? Perhaps I’ll take them to the utterly ghetto beachside spot in Dehiwela. At least the “fried rice” ingredients cannot be closely examined because it’s quite dark there

      Dehiwela? Beachside? Are you referring to Wadiya and Wellawatte?

      • theotherwhitemeat 5:45 pm on July 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wadiya is ghastly now. The best seafood is at Lagoon (hugely expensive) or at a couple of places on Mount beach whose names escape me at the moment.

        Golden Mile? Also, Wadiya has always been quasi ghastly but can’t be beaten for location. Food is edible too.

          The last time I went there (about a year and a half) it was less than edible. Absolutely awful.

        Yeah, I have also been less than impressed with Wadiya of late. There is a place called JoJos (?) on Mount Beach, close to the Golden Mile. That’s slightly ghetto but folks go get drunk on the beach there. The place in Dehiwela (called the Station) is similar but slightly more civilized

          Has heard good things about the Station
