Archikande is a little village about 2 miles inland from the coast of Hikkaduwa in Sri Lanka. Deema's dad was a mastercraftsman. He also owned cinnamon plantations. Deema was the second last of 13 children.
So I know that were ever she is now, she will be tsking and shaking her head and telling anyone that would listen. That daughter of mine - she is full of ideas but she cannot make curry so thank god she married that Englishman.
Style & Deema
When I last saw my mother in Singapore, she wore a tatty, shapless old brown batik dress.. Her hair was chopped and white. She carried no bag and wore blue plastic flip flops.
She was thrifty too. So it wasn’t expensive material she used. Or she’d figure a way to make two blouses by cutting on the bias. But it never looked bad. It looked stylish.
