Today (2 November 2010) marks my first month in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Resident visa – Check!
I’ve pretty much found my bearings around Colombo and in nearby areas. I can’t navigate on my own but I would know if it’s the right way or not. Darn those roundabouts upon roundabouts though! Haha!
Daily routine – Check!
In as much as I enjoy cooking, I enjoy eating more! And in this month I would say hubby and I have been to pretty good restaurants in the city. I’m actually surprised there is a wide variety! And there are more things to try out!
Getting around the city via public transpo – Check!
Sinhala chutak puluan! I can speak a bit of Sinhala (their national language) – to the amazement of my hubby’s workmates and the pleasure of our trusty driver. Thanks to my teacher and fun classmates!
New friends – Check! Thanks to hubby’s really cool team (his brand team and most of Marketing) and my fun Sinhala classmates!
I am also practicing really serious and traditional yoga now. One-on-one yoga classes with an Indian Yoga Guru for 10 straight days anyone? I can do a shoulderstand, the plough and headstand! In just 4 days of practice. She is awesome. More on this later!
Home decorating – not fully but it is a work in progress!
Enjoying this break and embracing housewife-dom – check!
Scoring a job – well, hopefully that one pans out soon. Complicated visa situation (even if they mistakenly gave me a work visa with hubby’s details!). But all will happen in the right time.
Embracing the culture – a continuous journey but got some good headstart! Pettah anyone? And some nice Bawa afternoons.
