Happy Birthday to you my dear friend Asoka !
I wish you ALL Good Health, and Happiness today, and for many, many days
there after – as every sunrise now, is a Day of Happiness and Good Health .
I do recall , very fondly, all the fun we had at old Kynsey Rd Days , and
you were always ready with a good joke, some fun story, some tasty bit of ‘
did you hear this , or that … ‘
And the quiet goody goody Ranjith Silva – joined us in the fun too ,as
the poor fellow had no other choice – beat them or join them and he wisely
chose the latter !
Can you remember those crazy Friday afternoon Public Health Trips ?- all I
recall is the fun we had , and I think one of you had a car, or was it
Soma- another S gp fun man !
Remember that Baila Competetion at Bentota in ’94 ? when we both danced non
stop and ‘won’ the show ? and you were saying ‘ “Aney Deepthie mata nam bey
thavath natanna’ ” and I just kept you moving , and moving and dancing and
Wow- hard to believe that was 25 yrs ago !
This time around, in Beruwala, somehow, we did not do any baila , why so I
don’t know .
My trip to Vero Beach your home in Florida and to Winterhaven home of
Ranjith, back in ’92 was a whole lot of fun , as you can see by the photo
of us cooking in your kitchen, and we gave Arundathi and Shanthi had the
pleasure of watching Kitchen Show — Cooking – MD Style and pity there was
nothing called You Tube back then !
Love that shot of the coconut scraping that Arundathie took in your kitchen
Don’t we all look smashing -with heads full of nice black hair- did not
know, what ‘ hair dye ‘ was back then !
That was a great one week trip I did to Florida, and time for another one –
perhaps next Feb when I am in AZ .
Anyway- my dear Asoka, you have been such a good friend to me, all these
years, and I am glad that I was able to re- connect
with my old school friend Arundathie- from 1952 at the old Keleniya
school, along with Anslem and Wimal in Std 4 !!!!
This world is sooo small, that it scares me sometimes .
Have a Very Happy Birthday and Enjoy Good Health in the Years Ahead .
Hope we meet again- in Florida, if not in Beruwala- October 2018 .
