So what would YOU be willing to pay for these delectable cakes?

The bottom one is US $24.10 including delivering in and around Colombo.

The top one, with the exquisite daffodils, is US $17.15.

Ah! For Sri Lankan prices.

I have, over the years, sent at least 20 Kapruka cakes to relatives in Sri Lanka. They were always a hit — even in a family known over the years for their cake baking and decorating prowess.

I wish I could have Kapruka cakes in the U.S. I understand the prices would have to be different. But, I would pay $75 for either of these cakes — though, of course, I would NOT touch a piece.

That they now celebrate Mother’s Day in Sri Lanka makes me smile. It is a new holiday. We never had it when we were growing up. It is all the Sri Lankans living in the West — wanting to pay homage to their mothers in Sri Lanka. It is cute. My mother, adoptive at that, has been gone since 1992. I get a feeling that mothers in Sri Lanka get treated on various Mother’s Day depending on where their offspring reside. So if a mother has kids in both U.K. and the U.S. she will get to celebrate two separate Mother’s Days; March 15 & May 10 (this year).

This is all I can find. We will have to go and take some good pictures to showcase with great piece of public art that Saad did for FREE to say 'Thanks' to Concord.

We did not know till last night that Saad Hindal, who is amazingly talented and a very nice guy to boot, had painted that amazing, very evocative mural in Concord — at the gas station (now closed) right opposite Concord High School (where all of his kids attended).

If you want a mural painted by Saad for your home or business let me know. My contact is over here >>> You will not regret it. You will have a treasure on your hand.

These paintings are INEXPENSIVE by local standards. Even I could afford one! If you are interested e-mail me. My e-mail is on the sidebar. Click to ENLARGE. This is a rather large canvas. The others are smaller.


P1050056

This was his latest. He had just finished it. He was eager for me to take a picture of it.


P1050054

A new impressionistic style that Mr. Hindal is experimenting with. This is the NH Lakes Region, ‘Laconia’, in early Fall.

Mr. Saad Hindal.


On Thursday, September 5, on the way back from another doctor’s appointment in Bedford we stopped by Mr. Hindal’s house in Concord to pay for the picture we got on ‘take it … pay me when you have the money’ at the Laconia Multicultural Day in August.

He has a delightful residence full of color, murals on the wall and paintings everywhere. He and his family, per their background, were wonderful hosts. We all had a great time. So much so that we are going back. We didn’t have much time on Thursday. It was late and we had to get ready for our trip to Acadia.

As you can tell I am very impressed with Mr. Hindal’s work. The colors and forms really appeal to us all.

Yes, I plan to promote his work as much as I can. He has published a book. He gave Deanna an autographed copy. It is quite beautiful. I will try and get it made available to a wider audience.

IF you are interested in any of his work PLEASE contact me. My e-mail is on the sidebar. I will make it happen.
