We decided to check out a seafood platter dish but overall found quite a few problems with it. I had already complained about inconsistencies in their information presented as far as what was what with this seafood platter other food we could eat.
We arrived on Sunday at "The Fortress Resort" and this particular Sunday was "Bak Pura Pasaloswaka Poya Day" maybe it also means "Vesak Full Moon Poya Holiday"?
Bak Poya (Bak Pura Pasaloswaka Poya Day) which falls in the month of April marks Lord Buddha’s visit to Nagadipa (Sinhala: නාගදීපය).
This was his second visit to Sri Lanka after Enlightenment.
According to the ancient chronicle, Mahavamsa, He visited Nagadipa as he perceived an atmosphere of animosity between two parties of the Naga community.
The deity Samaddhisumana accompanied the Blessed One on this journey.
In simple terms for the local people this means "No Fish, No Meat, No Eggs, No Alcohol", for me this means "No Alcohol" as dictated by the government. Locals can not open alcohol and no alcohol can be served in public areas for 2 days. Fun killers.
My free 1 cocktail per day at the resort is seriously lacking since we arrived on Sunday and Monday was also run with the same rules. Lucky we bought some Vodka with us!
