    Robs,

    These days the prices have gone down all over. Colombo 03 residential property prices were the highest.

    And in good condition too. Not many of them could be seen these days in Colombo.

    Ramz,

    Machang Bongs, nice photos again of one of the best parts of Colombo.

    Can you remember those days, we used to pass the area to go for matches at CCC/CH & FC, NCC, SSC, CR & FC and the Sports Ministry grounds.

    On a given day, we could find the cream of Sri Lanka`s finest Cricketers, Rugby players and Athletes in action.

    [`Kurudu watte Manori]

    That song is by the Sunflower musical group.

    Ramz,

    Like very much Sunflower`s

    Pin Malu wale kusal hami malu bahanawa

    Pin Seelawathi Sil Aragena Makunu Maranawa

    Dhanapala Unath Minya Maha Paare Inganava

    Mama Ahala Nehena Sathyapala Attha Kiyanawa

    Did not listen to the song for a very long time, possibly mistakes are there.

    Apologies to Sunflower :):):)

    Ah this song .. of course I have heard, why not. A satirical look at the society.

    Empo,

    I am not sure.

    [Cinnamon Gardens (Colombo 07) is a suburb in Colombo]

    Is Cinnamon Gardens part of Colombo or a suburb? I thought Colombo is divided into 15 zones with Cinnamon Gardens being Colombo 07 and places like Dehiwala, Rajagiriya, Nawala, Kolonnawa, and Nugegoda are the suburbs.
