Got into the world of Mobile Broadband

Yesterday was a very happy and lucky day for me, because I got a new Dialog HSDPA mobile broadband connection.

At the same time there is a little story behind that. Here it is.........
Yesterday morning I went to
buy the connection from one of the Dialog Future centers with one of my friend, Gayan. Both of us are working at the same place, he is from University of Peradeniya, and I'm from University of Moratuwa. We went there to get the broadband connection specially given to University students (either undergraduate or postgraduate). Both of us have completed the degree and still waiting for the transcripts, which means we are no longer in the campus, so literally not eligible to get the connection given to university students. But as we didn't return the University IDs (because of the transcripts are not given), we thought we could take it.
At the Future Center, I got lucky to buy the connection while Gayan face the music. He hadn't been allowed to buy the connection. But because I got it, we leave the place without saying a word. So I got the connection, but not Gayan. But the funny story is this......
Later in the afternoon, Gayan went to another Dialog ARCADE and bought the Univerity connection without any problem. So what should I say........... This is really, really stupid........ Well that's how it goes.............

On your mark.... Get set...... Go..........

Hello everyone, sorry for those who visit me earlier that I didn't post anything. So let me introduce myself here first.

I'm Devinda Abayagunawardana, an Assistant Engineer working at Dialog telekom, Sri Lanka, the no 1 mobile telecommunication provider in the country. So obviously I find my self packed with work most of the time, but from today onwards, I'd update my blog as frequently as I can.
Then about my family. I have one sister and she is sitting to GCE (O/L) exam at the end of this year. My father is working at Commissioner of Motor Traffic and my mother is an Audit examiner.
So that's about me. Now let me tell you about my friends.......

Well, I can't think where I should start. Ok let me start with my old school friends. There are many, but form them 2 are special, Sajith and Terrence.
Here they are;

From left : Sajith (rodda), Me (of course), Terrence (lokka).

They are my first friends. Then I would mention 3 other names, Anusha (to Anusha's blog), Tharaka (to Tharaka's blog) and Damitha.
Here's a crazy picture of us.

From left to right & top to bottom : Anusha, me, Damitha and Tharaka

We are friends form school time, but strengthen the friendship after we join the University, that is University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka.

So those are my closest. You probably would get to know about others afterwords.

Well that seems to be enough for the day. I'll post a lot in the future as I find the time for it.
