      • Comment and let them know of the award. 

      Seven interesting things about me:

      1. I first started cooking when I was 12, since then I love experimenting with new recipes. I regret that I did not study to become a chef.

      2. I love greenery, where ever there are a lot of trees I feel it's a peaceful and relaxing place. I feel sad when I see people cutting trees. I dream of living in a house surrounded by a big garden filled with lot's of trees.

      3. I loose myself in good music, I love hip hop, R & B, it could be English, Tamil, Hindi or any language, I look for drum beats, I also have wonder girls Nobody- Korean pop in my mp3.

      4. I love to try different type of work outs and feel good after a good sweat. Also it helps me to binge on good food without any guilt. My favorite workouts are Zomba and Yoga.

      5. I like to watch reality shows, I mostly watch Biggest Loser, Master Chef, if not them then I watch cooking shows. My favorite chefs on TV are Micheal Smith, Jet Tila, Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver, Laura Calder, Roger Mooking and Chef Wan (Malaysian Celebrity Chef).

      6. Thrill rides, hiking, trekking, waterfalls, beaches, islands etc., with bunch of good friends and my better half  would be a perfect holiday for me. Relaxing by the pool is never in my agenda on a holiday. I like travelling, exploring and photography. Links for some of my photo shoots. Canadian natural beauty, Kandy (My hometown), Sri lanka.

      7. Visit to Canada was the best holiday I had in the recent past. I adored the fall colours, it was a wonderful experience to see a variety of red, yellow, orange and brown color leaves, for someone from a tropical country (used to seeing only green leaves). Of course I really enjoyed shopping (End of Season sales are a good bargain) and veg food in Canada. (went to Toronto Veg Festival, Vegetarianism is very much popular than here in Malaysia)
