The old Colombo Airport. As with any trips of mine I would make sure that I plan to visit someplace or indulge in any activities that would make my trip a memorable and an enjoyable one. This trip to Sri Lanka was based on two  – swimming with the whales and a visit to the Sri Lankan Air Force Museum. The former did...

Sri Lanka 2015 – Colombo – Day 5

Pettah market trader . There is a saying ‘ leave when you are winning’ but I did not adhere to it and still continued to push my luck and I won though. The frequency of patronizing the casino took its toll as I just got up at midday. Refreshed myself and had a quick lunch and then went back to bed only to wake up at 3...

Sri Lanka 2015 – Mirissa – Matara – Colombo – Day 4

Fishmonger @ Matara market. The after effects of partying with people half your age takes a heavy toll on the body and the mind especially the morning after. Luckily the owner of the guesthouse I was staying in did not give up on knocking on my door, sort of a wake-up call. After breakfast, I took a ‘Tuk Tuk’ ride to...

Sri Lanka 2015 – Mirissa – Being a Beach Bum! – Day 3

Mirissa Beach I could not sleep the previous night as I kept on thinking of my cancelled swimming with the whales programme – in abeyance, postponed, called off etc etc etc. The thought of touching the whales were only in the imaginative mode. Shoot !!! But after looking back at the train trip to Galle yesterday,  I...

Sri Lanka 2015 – Colombo – Day 1

Sri Lankan Parliament Building, Colombo. Why Sri Lanka? The main reason?  I was offered a “ZERO” points ticket by Air Asia BIG loyalty program despite having enough “BIG” points for the normal flight ticket. Cheap traveller ? Nah! Just getting the best of the deals that were offered on the table. The...

Hong Kong & Macau – 2015 – Day 4

Ruins of St. Paul, Macau. Woke up early, organised myself and checked out of the hotel as I had the ferry to catch. I took the MRT and after a change of trains I found myself at the ferry terminal. Bought the ferry ticket and boarded the half empty ferry for an hour’s journey to Macau. On arrival at a different terminal...
Hong Kong & Macau  – 2015 – Day 3

Hong Kong & Macau – 2015 – Day 3

Hong Kong Cultural Centre. It was still raining heavily since last night and I was limited to the five foot alleys of the hotel building. I invested in an  ‘overpriced’ umbrella and started walking aimlessly around the Tsim Sha Tsui neighbourhood. The tempting sight of the coffee house of the Peninsular Hotel...
