Figters Back

Yes I know, it has been a really long time since my last post. Almost 8 months gone. Really sorry for not keeping in touch. It happens you know, the gaps increase between your posts, and you loose touch of that whole discipline that you work hard for months to achieve. But what the hell I'm back. And I'm here to stay!

It's the same old with me, how are y'all doing?

Okay, some interesting pictures from last Saturday's X fighters Jam at Galle Face Green!

The atmosphere was just breath taking. The crowd was superb. The noise, the whistles the applause made it a good spectacle. 

I'm a big big motorbike fan. I love to watch stunts and do all sorts of crazy things! I was properly broke. I couldn't even dream of affording a 500 Rupee ticket. I got a 100 rupee ticket, showed a sad face to the cops, got inside the 500 rupee stand, and somehow crawled my way onto the media tower. And here is what happened next!

The first few jumps were quite boring. Just jumping over empty space.

Then came the interesting stuff. Man, these stunts were just sick!

The first time I saw a back flip live. I could feel my blood rushing all over me! Gave me some kind of unexplainable high.

and yes, he actually let go of the bike in mid air!

I dunno what he was trying to do, but looks way cool!

Man this was one hell of an experience! Really glad I went that day! Waiting for the Jams to happen again next year!

Twas a quick post I know, I know. I hope you enjoyed the pictures! More pictures are on the way.
see you guys soon!

Diamond Jubilee

The Sri Lankan Navy celebrated their 60th anniversary on the 9th Of December. The lads had put up quite a grand exhibition open for the public right up till the 12th and was extended to the 15th on request. It happened at the light house premises in Fort, Colombo. I had the chance of visiting it with my university friends. Here is a glimpse of what was going on.

The light house premises was closed to the public for many years and was open recently. I had never been there all my life and was really excited to visit the place.

This was the big entrance that led to the grand exhibition.

We visited the exhibition on the 15th, the last day. That evening the Navy did a show with speed boats and it was quite stunning.

Behind, is the Port expansion project in action. Formerly known as the the South Port is now being extended to accommodate more vessels.

Yeah yeah, my signature sunset picture ;) Gallicissa, there you go.

Yes, they had huge ass guns on display. Not a big fan. I saw many people keeping small kids on these guns and taking pictures. Many many posers were caught in the act :P

This was funny, there was a diver in a tank. The poor guy had gone numb and tired after being in the water for along time and waving at people.

All my life I wanted to see this temple, but I never got the chance. This was one of those desires you die for but never share with anyone. It was lovely!

The Fort, lighthouse. Was brilliant and beautiful. Loved it!

Had a good time with Chavie and Inosh. Thank you. Looking forward for more meetups.

Oh btw, I bloody miss you, and love you, JiJi :$

Hope you guys enjoyed the post,
