Iraj’s Kotthu video. Pretty funny, especially the Prabhakaran part.
UPDATE UPDATE: It’s rescheduled for Friday at 4 PM. Same place.
UPDATE: This event is probably not happening. The Ministry Of Defence blocked the use of the space like yesterday. Bummer. Thanks Sharanya in the comments. I called the organizer and they said they don’t know if/when/where it’ll be rescheduled.
Tanja found this amazing event tomorrow, they’re trying to make the world’s largest kottu roti at Vihara Maha Devi Park tomorrow, 7,000 portions. Which I think means free kottu. I say inshallah because it may rain or something, and it’s unlikely that it’ll rain sauce. The title of world’s largest kottu isn’t highly competed for internationally, but it should still be a pretty awesome (and loud) event.
The blunt metallic blades will start their tattoo at around 4 PM. Since we are on island time though, you should still be able to pick up a plate after work. If there early, bring a blanket to sit on or take a tour of the park. There’s a kids amusement park within the grounds as well that has seen better days but if you’re feeling brave take a ride on the tea cups, an hour after eating, obviously. (YAMU)
