Eating & Drinking In Sinhala – Part 2: Main Food Items

Quick. Name a movie trilogy that immediately comes to mind?

Woahhh! Even I was thinking of The Godfather. That’s freaky deaky!!!

And without a doubt, in that trilogy Part 2 was the best, right? If you disagree with me I will fight you tooth, nail, and and body hair on this.

This is Part 2 of the trilogy of “Eating & Drinking In Sinhala” (as if the title didn’t give it away already) and with the above logic, you’re in for a MEGA TREAT, since this is obviously going to be the BEST one!

If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that even if you write a great blog post, you could still ruin it by setting your readers up for massive disappointment thanks to your big fat obnoxious mouth.

– Michael Corleone, “The Godfather, Part 2”

Eating & Drinking In Sinhala – Part 1: Food, Drinks, & Other General Words

eating & drinking in sinhala - lazy but smart sinhala-1

I’ve always enjoyed food.

Any childhood photo of chubby little Dilshan would prove that.

I’ve always enjoyed drinks too, for that matter, but obviously more in my adult life than the earlier years. Any photo of my chubby beer belly would prove that too.

I’ve been asked by many: “What’s your favorite type of food?”, the most recent occurrence of this question was from a distant aunt I ran into, while – I kid you not – waiting for the doors of a movie theater to open!

That’s not a question that can be answered, can it? I mean there’s so many to choose from!

(And besides, the damn movie is about to start!) >>>

8 Days Of The Week In Sinhala

8 days of the week in sinhala-1

“8 days a week… I loooove you, 8 days a week… Is not enough to show I care”

– The Beatles, 1964

This is the song that has been stuck in my head the entire week…

… Exactly from the moment I decided to do a post on the days of the week in Sinhala. So I felt that it was only fair that I name it after this song.

Howdy folks… (“Howdy?” When did I start saying “Howdy”?), here’s a blog post I should’ve done years ago but which I had overlooked.

This came about thanks to one of your emails that rudely interrupted my Sunday brunch last week…

When I Went Back To Monaco…. Some Beautiful, Scenic, & Idiotic Pics From My Trip

when i went back to monaco lazy but smart sinhala

 Almost all of you have enjoyed and said nice things about the pics I’ve posted in the past from my travels. But I remember a few of you were quite annoyed with my last set of holiday photos. I suppose it’s because it had nothing to do with learning Sinhala. So rest assured, I learned my lesson…

But luckily, I have a shitty memory and I forget lessons very quickly (And it’s so much fun annoying people, don’t you think?) :)

So here’s a new set of photos from my most recent trip to Monaco:

Valentine’s Day Messages In Sinhala (By Someone Who Doesn’t Know A Thing About Being Romantic)

lazy but smart sinhala valentines day

I’ve never been much of a “romantic”…

(The fact that I actually thought a picture of me with a plastic rose in my mouth and a fake backdrop of a fireplace would look “sexy” should prove my point)

At the same time, I’ve never been one to celebrate Valentine’s Day either. I always found it rather gimmicky…

… All the over-priced roses, chocolates, teddy-bears and hundreds of radio commercials that start with “Want to surprise your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day?” kind of got me fed up with the whole damn thing.

So then what the hell am I doing writing a Valentine’s Day post?…

Do We Use “Articles” In Sinhala? Is There An Equivalent To “The”, “A”, & “An”?

dilshan jayasinha

Most of you who’ve known me for a while know that I’m not a big fan of all these fancy “grammar” words…

And so I try my best to avoid them. I’m not just talking about weird sounding words like “Subjunctive” or “Gerund” but even simple things likes “Articles”.


Simply because most of the time, I need to look it up to know what on earth it means (See, told you I was not a “teacher”).

But sometimes, I can’t get around them and have to use them. This is one of those posts, so bear with me. But just know that although I’ll be saying “Articles” throughout the post, I’m simply referring to the words “The”, “A”, & “An”…

Do Any Of You Know These Adjectives In Sinhala? (Because I Sure As Hell Don’t!)

sinhala adjectives - lazy but smart sinhala-3

Yes, every time I get stuck, I do what any narcissistic blogger would do: I get my photo taken

Yeah, I know. It’s weird that I’m asking you a question on Sinhala but I’m royally stuck and I need your help…

(But note, I’m not looking for the ‘proper’ Sinhala word that you’ll only see in a high-brow Sinhala literature book. I only want good old fashioned ‘spoken Sinhala’ suggestions. Take your haughty taughty pretentious Sinhala vocabulary to some other blog… :))

  • boring
  • clumsy
  • exciting
  • passive
  • creepy
  • resourceful

If you know any of them, please click on “Comments” below and tell me. Thanks you guys!

Sinhala Adjectives – Part 2… But (gulp) Is It Better Than The First One?!

Sinhala Adjectives P2 - lazy but smart sinhala-2

Photo Credits: Awesome Father
Shitty Photoshopping Of My Shirt Color To Orange: erm… that would be me…

In a world where most sequels suck greasy marshamallows compared to their originals (except for “The Godfather” and “Back To The Future”) I’ll admit, I did feel some pressure when doing Part 2 of Sinhala Adjectives…

But luckily, it didn’t last long since I’m one cocky dude who thinks no end of himself…

(You see my problem?! It’s saying dumb nonsense like this that puts all this unnecessary pressure on me in the first place)

Anyway, my dear folks… How are you? :)

I’m hoping that you’ve already read Part 1 of Sinhala Adjectives… But if you haven’t, no worries, I’ve done this in a way that you’ll still be able to follow it.

Too many new things to learn in this post for me to do my usual time-wasting monologue. So let’s get right into it.
