Tourism returning to Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka has the most beautiful beaches, such as Unawatuna Beach down south, Arugam Bay Beach along the east coast, Bentota beach adjoining Wadduwe sea beach, Mount Lavinia Beach, Kalutara beach and so on. Wadduwe has one of the best beach holiday resorts, and my experience with one of them is- Haridra beach resort. The venue is approximately 35 klm from Colombo, and you could reach the place within an hour, through the highway or the old Colombo-Galle Road.

Osteoporosis (thinning bones) is a silent disease
Asians, including Sri Lankan men and women being of smaller stature and leading sedentary lives have a very high incidence of hip fractures-meaning fractures of the neck of the femurs with the slightest fall. They also have less bone to lose than people with larger frames and more body weight. Also common among Asians including Sri Lankans, are the spine and wrist fractures. We are born with about 300 soft bones and with age the cartilage attached to them gets replaced by hard bone. Some of these bones later fuse together, so that an adult skeleton has 206 bones.

Renowned restaurateur Manjula Fernando's product launch
The night represented the unveiling of this dynamic restaurateur's "ALL IN ONE CURRY MIXES" and the congruous promotion of his tour venture Sri Lankan Travels. So what promoted Manjula to launch this wonderful range of easy to use spice mixes? Well that romantic perception of individual spices tenderly roasted and pulverized in the mortar and pestle does still have its pride of place, especially among the older generation but a product such as this offers the convenience we are all seeking today. Manjula's extensive experience blending spices is what inspired him with this latest offering to the local community.
