If you celebrated the Sinhala and Tamil New Year, I hope you were blessed with a safe and generous festive season surrounded by all your loved ones
In the lead up to Avurudu it felt like utter chaos around all the major retail hubs, with many scrambling with their Avurudu preparations and plans. I got myself well away from the hustle-and-bustle prior to Avurudu, and even started my celebrations early!
In case you were wondering, I had a wonderful Avurudu - kind of a mixture of all the Avurudu ingredients plus a little time-out for myself as well. It was also my first Avurudu where I wasn't in Colombo, so that was also a pleasant change.
