Ambalangoda - Ocean Reef

“Ocean Reef” at Ambalangoda is a cool place to have a swim in the sea. It wasn't much crowded though it was a weekend. The place is owned by a relative of my good friend Dinuka (better known as “Aliya”).

There was a man who came selling some handicraft items. Those were mainly necklaces made of polished coconut shells. Pretty impressive piece if art I would say. I brought one for a very cheap price. (Later I gave to my sis and she loved it)

After enjoying the swim we were planning to go on a boat ride at “Madu Ganga”. But unfortunately we didn’t have that much time left so we ended up watching some nearby river to “Madu Ganga”. It was a nice scenery which makes your mid get relaxed, everything was calm and very quite out there.

On our way back to Colombo we stopped at “Induruwa” and again we headed to the beach. There was big rock by the coast and we spend a movement there enjoying the view.

A day at Blue Waters

Went to Blue Waters with my SLIIT friends. It was a good place to spend a day, but unfortunately for us it was raining. So half of my plans washed away with the rain. However we had some fun after a long time.

(Althaf, Me, Lahiru, Lavangi, Lakshika and Dilhara)

At Blue Waters the Lunch was excellent and not to mention i had two plates of dessert(Oh yeah that's me..) . Don't have a photo of me eating all that, but i do have a photo of me by the pool.

Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor and the Lamborghini Reventon

It’s been a long time that the Lockheed has launched the ultimate fighting aircraft F-22 or better known as “Raptor”. I loved the design of this aircraft from the Aerodynamics to almost everything it had on board. Most people will fall in love with this aircraft just because of the looks. It has the perfect shape and the design for a Fighter Jet.

Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor

In the beginning of this year I watched some TopGear videos and guess what something reminds me of the F-22 Raptor. It had the same looks and everything but this time it’s a car... and it is the Lamborghini Reventon (pronounced as Rehbenton).

Lamborghini Reventon

Not many Raptors are produced by Lockheed, the average production rate is 20 Raptors per year. On the other hand Lamborghini will be producing only 20 Reventons ever. I personally think that the Lamborghini has copied the design of the body from the F-22 or at least the F-22’s design has influenced the guy who designed Reventon (copying that is). The Reventon, with its matte gray finish and carbon fiber panels provides necessary proof for that.

According to Lockheed F-22 Raptor costs $ 137.5 M where as the Lamborghini has put a price tag on Reventon as € 1.0 M

The Reventon is powered by a 6.5 Liter V 12 Engine which give the car 650 BHP at 8000 rpm and 487 ft-lb at 6000 rpm of torque. 0-60 mph takes only 3.4 seconds while the top speed is 220 mph.
