Kala Pola 2014

I always try to make it to the Kala Pola, organised by JKH because its a really good place to appreciate good local art and maybe even pick up a thing or two :D I also like taking pictures of art which really catches my eye, amidst the copies of Senaka Senanayake, George Keyt and the likes. 

Like this one, done by the Junior State Champion. I thought it was adorable if a little macabre! 
But what creativity of the little one!

I'm sure the theme for the middle school children was death as there were two death scenes that won prizes! This was by far the most stiking...probably her/his achchi amma's death. Awwiee...look at the expressions of the family!

I also love modern and this was no exception. It stuck out amidst the usual 'nice to see' art 
and is truly unique.

A beautiful balletina made of nuts and bolts.

Kinda funky I thought!

Another cat! lol!

A large while mural with a very thought provoking, simple drawing I thought...

This was a beauty! The pink just popped out of the canvas and I can really see it being on a large bedroom wall or maybe even a hotel! Wish I had  the money and space to invest in it! :'(

Screen print art, very hip on a simple brick wall?

Beautiful Buddhist art of all shapes and sizes! :)

And finally... the artist's own depiction of himself in Edvard Munch's 'Scream'! 
Kind of what I'm bottling up these days, haha!

Kala Pola is an awesome event I look forward to all year! Till next year peeps!

Oh what a bootiful Wedding (s)!!!

Its been weddings galore really... from December till End of January (for now) and I'm really tired!!! But nevertheless, which girl hates a beautiful wedding!?! but the entire year is filled with weddings of good friends... what is a wedding really, other than 2 people embarking on a mysterious adventure of discovery... and us, their awesome friends making it a night to remember

So I decided to take pictures like the little godaya that I am... and put it up...

First off, wedding 1... This happened in December 2011 though, but i always wanted to put pictures up of this wedding... (simple little thing) XD

Church decor,  just flower petals lining the isle...

They also had a poruwa... again quite a simple deal... The Bride wanted all decor in white...

  The bridesmaids wore Orange/Tangerine cotton silks with 4 different coloured pallus...

Wedding 2 : was in December 2013, IT was the most beautiful wedding I had been to (SO FAR) in my life!!! The wedding was at the brides home and under a marquee, while little bulbs sparkled like stars. The detail and thought that went in to this wedding was amazing!

These little mini vases were hung on the walk way to the garden...
The bar was under mango tree, and had these chandeliers shown in the picture below all around it... so breathtakingly beautiful....
Little cocktail tables around the bar..
The high table.... You can see the maid of honour practicing her speech!

The table decor... <3

The other was of a homecoming, of a very close friend.  The theme for the decor was set as Origami cranes, you would see us at office daily, making little colourful birds and hiding it under our tables just to make sure to look as if we were busy! :'D

The table decor...

>>> the photo prop-station
The photo-prop backdrop
The entrance decor and the sign boards... so colourful and so unique
The ceiling at stables - park street mews
My friend lets call her T, went overboard wanting to make sure her husband knew they were now and forever officially H-I-T-C-H-E-D!!!

THE end... for now!!!
