It was a few busy weeks for us. We had a quick visit to Sri Lanka in early February due to family requirements. Although we are back from a few weeks holiday in Sri Lanka during November and December, this quick visit was arranged because we should attend. Anyway, it was not a well-planned typical holiday, but we still enjoyed it! Coming back to Singapore, I had to attend an event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Everything went very well. After, traveling to two different countries, I am back with a quick update about our Sri Lanka trip. I will also share some photos from Kuala Lumpur soon. 🙂
As I said, it was a quick trip and we traveled to Sri Lanka on a night flight from Singapore Changi Airport. After a working day and a school day for the kid, we started our journey by having tea at Kopitiam at the Airport.
The table we sat at was with a good view of the underground carnival of Changi Terminal 3. It is a good opportunity for children to enjoy while waiting for flights. Though we didn’t have time on that day, I promised my son to visit Changi terminal 3 during the next school holiday, and not to fly to another destination. But, to spend time in this carnival activities. 🙂
We had a great time in Sri Lanka with our parents. Though we enjoyed our family time and in required tasks,I did not take many photos. We were limited with our time there. But,as always I could spend more time outdoors enjoying nature views.
It was interesting to see my mom’s home garden and some crops.
A visit to Sri Lanka is never completed if we don’t try different food. At most of our stops, we enjoyed snacks and Ceylon tea. In Sri Lanka, such savoury snacks are called ‘short-eats’. So we had ‘short-eats’ with ‘Plain-Tea’. 🙂
We also visited Kandy which is one of the most popular destinations in Sri Lanka.
On our way back to home from Kandy, we stopped at a stall that sells clay items. Everytime I visit Sri Lanka for our yearly holiday,I buy clay cooking pots as I like to cook in such pots. I did the same in our recent December holiday. This time,I bought a clay water filter to bring back to Singapore. 🙂
Finally, it was time to return back to Singapore. It was less than a week. We had a great time with our parents.
Below are some captures from the Sri Lanka airport.
The stall from Sri Lanka Post was my best finding. As I collect stamps as a hobby, I wanted to check the stamps available for sale. It is a great place to buy stamps and first-day covers from Sri Lanka.
Among other duty-free shops, there is also a Mlesna Tea Centre where travelers can buy quality Ceylon Tea.
Our departure from Sri Lanka was on 14th February which was Valentine’s Day! We could catch this performance at Sri Lanka Airport.
Finally, we are back in Singapore. 🙂
