As some of you might know, I am from a small country called Sri Lanka. What did you say? You have never heard or seen my country on world map? Oh! In that case, please just look below India. That is right! It does look a bit similar to a tear, which is why, it is called the "Tear of the Indian Ocean." Not only that, it is also called the "Pearl of the Indian Ocean," and "The Nation of Smiling People."
Sri Lanka is a wonderful country. It is a floating kingdom, which is surrounded by ocean on all sides. Speaking of kingdom, you might think that we have a king. If you think so, you are wrong. We have a great president, who also cares about poor people as well as wealthy people. His name is Maithripala Sirisena, who became the president in year 2015. Sri Lanka is a semi-presidential representative democratic republic and has 9 provinces, and 25 districts.
In Sri Lanka, we can experience hot climate northern areas, cold climate in the central mountainous areas, and a nice, perfect climate near the beaches. The different climate zones lead to a high biodiversity. Various types of birds, and butterflies, and other types of creatures can be seen very often. Aside from that, Sri Lanka is also home to many endangered plants and animals like Asian Elephants and different types of orchids. Not only fauna, but also flora is rich in my country, which is why we get to eat a lot of vegetables. You might be a bit disappointed by seeing the public environment since pollution is very common in many areas. However, in nice places like Horton Plains National Park, Royal Botanical Gardens in Peradeniya, Hakgala Botanical Garden, Sigiriya, and Gregory Lake, I am sure that you will be happy.
Not only that, I am sure you will be delighted with our tasty food! They just taste so awesome! Kottu, king coconut, curd with kithul treacle, and how can I ever forget the treats in our Sinhalese and Tamil New Year food table! Not only those, we Sri Lankans also eat some Indian food. Some popular ones are Thosai (dosa), pani walalu (jalebi), and wade (vada). Just talking about those makes me feel hungry!
In brief, I love my country and I am proud of being a citizen of it. Please do not forget to have a look at my 'Proud Sri Lankan" post if you want to know more about my country! And don't forget to leave a comment!
Well, you all know that my name is Thanumi. But do you know anything else behind that? First of all, I will tell you the meaning of my name. Actually, it means 'the beautiful tune.' That is one of the reason that some of my classmates call me 'Tuna.' You can also call me 'Nami' or 'Nam Nam,' if you like. Funny names, right? But honestly, I like 'Thanumi' the best. And I am a sixth grade student in Thailand.
As mentioned in the avatar poem, I love the color pink. But not only that, I like light blue and Lilac too. If you like to talk about my favorite subjects, I love science, mathematics and arts. I like to play football and badminton even if I am a bad player. Well, I am a book lover! I can't stop reading if I get my hands on a good book. Sometimes I go to sleep with a book and I can't even think of sleeping unless I finish reading the whole book.
I will give you some examples of the books that I read...
1) Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling
2) Geronimo Stilton and Thea Stilton books by Elisabetta Dami
3) Malory Towers, Famous Five, Secret Seven, St. Clare's, The Naughtiest Girl, and Mystery series by
4) Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
And many more.....!
