Of course it can!

I am invited! :)

yay! i am so excited! I really have no thoughts about this forum right now. i have been contemplating on what i could learn out of it. Its ironic how this happens a day after my previous post on the conflict on Sri Lanka! it either confirms pure chance or that a Blog-God exists!

Either way, i am ecstatic about the opportunity.
