    Really enjoying LBSS. Just one question about colours. Is it OK to say dodam paata for orange?

    • Dilshan Jayasinha October 19, 2013 at 08:55 #

      Not really. Especially since the oranges here are more green-ish than orange-ish; so it wouldn’t probably work. But good question.

      [for anyone else who might read Anne’s question, FYI, dhodam = “oranges” (the fruit)]
