Explore Sri Lanka: Guess what the second language was
Lankan readers of Explore Sri Lanka, the glossy travel magazine published by BT Options, might have been a tad confused at the pullout found in its November issue. The eight-page, neatly folded supplement titled ‘Places & Shopping’ is in two languages. Any guesses which?
Right through the pullout, pages titled Explore the Island –Wildlife, National Museums, and details provided on the map of the island on the middlespread, plus all information on places and shoppping are printed in English and Chinese. The advertisements too; only the captions to the photographs are unaccompanied by Chinese text.
No explanation is provided leaving readers mystified.
And the mass wedding for Chinese couples where President Maithripala Sirisena will be the chief guest will be held at the former Race Course Grounds on December 17.
