Wendy Whiteley’s Secret Garden

When I was in Sri Lanka, I used to go to Diyatha Uyana to enjoy food and to Nawala Wali-Park on Saturdays to enjoy calypso music. The habit continued after migrating. Wendy Whiteley’s Secret Garden is my favourite park in NSW which motivates me to go to work every day. It’s in a walking distance from my office so most days I go there during lunch hour. Overlooking the Lavender Bay and the iconic Sydney Harbour bridge, this beautiful flowery garden brings joy to busy urban life.     The emotional story behind this lovely garden goes as; “Wendy...

When I was small I had crushes on two celebrities – Michael Praed who played the role of Robin Hood in the British TV series “Robin of Sherwood” and Bryan Adams.

But curiosity made me follow the link and read the full article. It was him! My...

A Man with Scars and an Empty Garage

The cobwebs have formed dusty clouds inside the garage. The garage is now a sanctuary for insects. The wheels of my car used to draw patterns on the grass path. Now the path is full of weeds. The dust carried by the breeze soiled my face and clothes. One of my hands rubbed my face. The skin of the scars on face felt rough to the fingers. My fingers searched for the unharmed soft skin in between the scars that were caused by the car accident. It must have been a cursed day… the day I bought my car. It was a jinxed vehicle! When I was planning to buy it, some friends warned me. Most of its former owners have had faced a chain reaction of troubles. Since that unfortunate day my life was not the same again. ‘Beauty is only skin deep’ I have come across that proverb many times. I used to assume it preaches people not to judge others by their appearance. Now with experience I certainly know what it means. It is a reminder to maintain your ‘looks’. Because no matter how good you are, the people still judge you by your face. I had the means to pay and arrange for a cosmetic surgery. But then I sensed a riot in my mind. The voice in my head told me, if it was...

Long time ago in my school days, I had taken part in the western band and the drama crew, but never sports! On the contrary, my three classmates Milani, Nusra and Chandima had too much blood pumping in their veins and had joined the school cricket team. Guess what, they played leather ball! These three girls were always on the ground, whenever they came back to classroom, they were sun burnt! They were dedicated, disciplined and fun. And they were among the very first school girls...
