Do you believe in ghosts?

I thought i would post this in my blog since i received it from a friend of mine. I am interested in all this paranormal stuff i guess that is the nature of most right brainers, Always in search for unknown and adventure. Some of the photos which i received clearly shown that they are work of some photo-shop people, some of them are really amateur looking to me so i decided to leave them out of the blog and post what was quiet convincing looking to me. So Take a look folks.

 A snap like above will scare the hell out of you if it was in your family photo right?. Well creepy.
I hope you all enjoyed, next time when ya have your photos developed, make sure you double check them for anything peculiar. :)

I Love this doctor... This really does make sense

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!! ..... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans ! Another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And remember:

'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO, What a Ride'


For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.


Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Once again i got caught in the island spell..... 12 days of touring

I know this is a bit of too old news to publish as a new post in my blog but here goes, as I always say nothing really matters as long as you feel good about it. These are some snaps and thoughts of the tour I had all around sri lanka last February. Since I am a National tourist guide lecturer, I always get to tour around this island and explain about it to the tourists, but something that really amazes me is that I never got fed up of this island no matter how many times I have travel through it.

On this tour we have taken two motorcycles, one is a Yamaha XT 400cc which and the other is Honda XR Baja 250cc. They were pretty sturdy enough to get us through all twelve days of the tour. I went up as the tour guide and Jane was the tourist. She is from England and wants to tour all around sri lanka on a motorcycle specifically because she is a photographer and she says best way to see the island is on motorcycle. I sure do agree with her.

Above picture shows the two motorcycles we have used on our tour. Well pretty good for their old age since the owner of them have kept them in very good (engine) Condition lol.

Here is just a glimpse of knuckles mountain range over the my side mirror. It is one of the most scenic places here in this island. Every time i go there, the beauty of it really do capture my heart and soul.

Well that's me after few hours of riding up in the knuckles mountain range. It is fun really it is.

This is my self has stopped to rest for a while and jane also wanted to take few pictures of the surroundings.
This picture was taken on our way back to hotel from polonnaruwa. it is an ancient sri lankan city, it contains remnants from the kings times which they use to govern the country from this specific place. It's a very good place to ride around because not many mountains and hard turns to take, just straight road, endless straight road to all your destinations.

To the right you can see a photograph of my tent in the "Ella Adventure Park". That is one of the coolest places to stay when you are on a slightly adventure type tour. It was quiet late when we reached adventure park. We could not see a thing, with very little amount of light we had to walk about a kilometer in to the jungle where we also had to cross a hanging bridge to the camp site. It's an amazing place with barely no electricity. So later onwards my tourist had to go to a cabana which is near by the main office, restaurant etc in the camp site. then i was escorted to the most remotest place in the entire area, the furthest tent which was quiet fun. nothing but just kerosene lamp light, wind, sound of the river, bats and owls. after a cold water shower, i crawled in to my tent for a soothing quiet goodnight sleep. It was the off season so my self were the only person who were in the furthest campsite from the main office. Scary eh? Fun though.
I manage to take a picture in the morning of the bridge we crossed to come to camp site, well i am sure that is not a place to cross especially at night in pitch black. So if anyone of you who is happen to reading this entry in my blog, If you ever visit "Ella Adventure Park" of Sri Lanka, make sure you go there in a morning because otherwise it will be very difficult. Best way to go and enjoy "Ella adventure park" is go there in the morning, relax and get to know the surroundings. you could do some of their many great adventure activities, have your lunch and relax a bit at your camp site in the evening and make sure you hop in to the restaurant before it gets dark for dinner.
Well that was just a tiny fraction of the entire tour so i thought of sharing it with everyone. well last picture was taken at the "Galle" in "dalawella hotel", as the final farewell picture for the 12 day motorcycle adventure tour all around the island. Well goodbyes are always sad but for some reason when it comes to adventure, recreational touring it is not that sad because everyone takes a pinch of the memories that they have made out through out the entire tour. i hope you all liked this entry and please feel free leave comments about it.

Industrial Revolution and the Human Cradle

Since the beginning, Our mother earth was perfectly equipped to serve all beings in their needs… she had such profound knowledge her self had the ability to evolve for the well beings of her children… as a perfect example from harsh winters to glowing sweet summer mornings, for many thousands of years her children which we today calls “life” lived in harmony with all their love for the cradle which they came from, and their love towards the mother. From all of her children she had one special child which is us the human kind she cared the most… but for the well being of our own kind we have started a revolution… a revolution which we call the “industrial revolution” in search for all possibilities beyond what earth and nature it self could provide for us, blindly causing mass destruction to our mother, our brothers and sisters. Humanity has crawled out from the web of life not knowing that they are just a mere strand of it… but thinking they are the supreme ruler of the entire web of life.

As the time goes on we felt that the destruction we blindly cause to our cradle has an adverse effect on our own kind… as retaliation of our own action we received worst starting from diseases to massive natural disasters.

It was too late to turn back and run in to the arms our mother… it was too late… humanity cannot go back to where it was because he does not remember the path that he came all the way. So humans understood the situation and they have tried a different approach which we today call as “Save the Environment”. It works… Return home journey seems still far for humanity but it is possible… the current industrial world is doing everything that is possible to minimize the damage caused by them to the nature. The journey to reunite with our mother has begun…

This is why we who are at “Sierra Ready-mix” do everything in a nature friendly way to minimize the environmental pollution to maximum possibility. We have built and planned our ready-mix factory in such a way that for the most it may not look like a factory at all. We have implement recycling technology to unlock the maximum potential of natural resources ensuring nothing goes to waste. We have also implemented the 5S method of organizing the entire factory and its workers so everything will co-operate with each other seamlessly. I am glad to be a part of “Sierra Team” because we who are at sierra has understood that we do not have two earths to live… we only have one… so save it… save its resources… the future of humanity depends on it.
