‘Marry Me’, an artisanal dessert by Master Chef Viraj Jayaratne valued at Rs. 3.8 million, was presented to star cricketer Kumar Sangakkara today. The dessert, created to mark 25 years of Chef Jayaratne’s culinary journey was prepared using expensive imported ingredients. The Grand Hotel team including the Master Chef took this bold step in an attempt to explore new avenues in the hospitality industry. Tourism Minister John Amarathunga was present at the event.

    This is why Sri lanka never develops, the idiots who has money (probably earned through corruption and illegal activities) have it in abundance and they use it on stupid silly stuff while the working class struggle to make it through their day because of corrupt politicians and unrealistic living costs.3.8 million wasted on a bloody cake probably that tastes like crap and will be flushed down the toilet

    The 3.8 million paid for the salaries of the guy who made it, The guy who served it, The guy who transported the ingredients, even the photographer who was present to cover the event.Thats how capitalism works!The alternative is that everyone in the country is made to eat the same butter cake made by the same baker; because if different cakes are serves it showed inequality

    There appears to be no hungry people known to Sanga in Sri Lanka and moreover in Kandy.This is cheap glory.
