I remember in the initial days of our relationship, we decided to have a breakfast date. Not brunch. Not late breakfast. Just a real morning breakfast. We went to one of the few places in Colombo having early breakfasts and that was a hearty meal. […]
Recently, we were passing by the makeshift stalls covered by piles and piles of rambutan, mangosteen and duriyan on Havelock Road, and wondered why we haven’t written anything about the glorious amount of tropical fruit available in our island. So here we are, writing about […]
