Default The Complete Story

7th Jan 2005
[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]4PM:[/COLOR]
Left office 1 and half hour early.. Kphilips and I went to our room, took a quick shower and left for kphilips's house, Pandhalam(A place in Pathnamthitta District) on his pulsar(180cc).. We had to get his car from home..
By the time we left from Cochin it was 5:30, we really had to hurry.. But man the traffic sucks!! But then once we got into the highway that leads to Alapuzha(Allepey, tsunami struck here), it was better.. We could go at an average speed of 80..
After we reached Allepey, we took a small chai break.. Really needed that.. My back was aching.. From Allepey, we took the road to Changanacherry.. That stretch is horrible, lots of road repair work happening, so had to go slower.. One bumpy ride that.. We took turns and rode.. It was getting dark
Finally at 9 we reached Kphilips's house.. His mom had prepared us dinner.. Yummy food!! His dad had gone out and returned within 15 mins of us reaching there..
We went up to his room and started getting the CD's into the bag.. They din't want us to drive to B'lore at night(Understandable).. But they knew we would!! hehehe.... They were like, be real careful..
Finally at about 9:45 we left his place.. And the thought about driving back the same way that we came was really irritating!! But since its a car, it is much more relaxing that a long ride on a bike!! So here we are on a CRDi with a really good music system.. autoslave and artofzen are at the Trivandrum office, so we had to pick them up from Allepey.. They would be coming in another friend's car till there and we goto pick em up.. Ph calls exchanged and at Allepey we get them.. Now we had to get to autoslave's house as he had to get his bag and CDs.. He said he had an interview at Wipro on sunday and will be going to watch speedrun on sunday(Lier lier pants on fire)... Then we head to our room to collect our stuff!! Finally at about [COLOR=Sienna]11:30pm[/COLOR] we start from Cochin.. B'lore here we come!!

8th Jan 2005
[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Time, not sure:[/COLOR]
We reach TCE College.. We stopped there and got out for a leak and also to stretch!! We got some pics clicked(I'v posted em).. We again get going..

[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]5:15am ish[/COLOR]
We were about to reach Salem just then got held up in a really big and I mean really really big traffic block.. Guess there was an accident up ahead.. There were lots n lots of lorries, busses cars etc etc.. Man, really pissed us all of!!
rtofzen got out and so did all of us.. He bought some biscuits from one small shop there!!
After sometime we took the car off road through the left and finally reach a point where there is a road to the left.. We all were like, wow.. Just then an amby with some guys come from that road and asked us to take that road when we said we need to get to Salem..
He needed some way to go so i thought may be he asked us to take that route just for him to pass(The road was really really narrow).. I doubt if ever before a car this big had gone that way..
Slowly we see people coming out of their houses rubbing their sleepy eyes, things being chucked out of their houses(Its mornin)..
Then we see artofzen talking to some guy in tamil.. The next thing we know is he is asking autoslave to move a little and he asks him to tag along.. Boy, he just woke up, and it was visible from his appearance and fragrance!! We go through the gully and finally our man says he wants to get down.. We drop him there and says just keep going straight to reach the highway... What to do but to listen to him.. We kept going and we reach a point where there is a road to the left and one to the right.. Oh god!!
Just then right in front of us, a little into the bushes we see an old guy sitting down for, well u know what.. hehehee.. The cars lights(even fog lamps on) are straight at his face.. Again its artofzen to the rescue.. He goes up and asks this guy.. It was one freakin hilarious sight!! Wanted to get a pics.. Couldnt get the cam out on time.. He told to take left and then we were off.... Would have cursed us all for disturbing him!! Finally we reach the highway and then get faster.....
We fiinished Salem and guess before Hosur, we needed a pee break!!


We took some more pics.. Donno which place and the pics too aren't all that clear(Ya trying to put up a pose, dint work though)!!


Finally after all that crazy pics, we get going!!

8th Jan 2005
At about 8:30am we reach B'lore.. We reach Vellara Jn(Near Urban Edge or to be precise Arabian nights).. Urban edge was good, man they shut down!!
We first thought about taking a room at a hotel but then decided after a few calls to all our friends, to head to Kphilips's cousin's place on 100 ft road, Indranagar.. We brush out teeths, wash our faces, take a bath, shave, run the iron over wrinkles on our clothes and after breakfast, all set to go!! [COLOR=Gray](Okie that sentence sounded a little childish)[/COLOR]
Anyways, we got going.. We first went to CMH road and got a cassette for Kphilips's handy cam.. It was time for lunch and so we go to Chungs(off CMH Road).. Food was good!!
Then at about 2:30-3:00 we reach Jakkur!! Since for all of us, it was the first time to a drag race, we all were like, wow, holy $#!t, awesome, and lots of similar works to express our feelings.. Awesome sounding machines everywhere.. Some were a feast to the eyes as well... Boy, it really felt gr8!!
We met all the bhpians frm B'lore.. And man it was really really hot and dusty.. Behind there were these guys on modded pulsars, cbzs, yams etc with no helmets, no protection whatsoever conducting their own 1/4 mile drag.. All the cars and bikes parked were covered in dust(so was the CRDi)!!
We leave after the event and at about 5:30-6:00 we reach Church street.. Parked the car there and then we took out the water and gave the car a much needed water bath!! Then the 4 of us headed to brigade road.. Artofzen was expecting his cousin and so he left us when we reached in front of mota arcade.. 3 of us(autoslave, kphilips n vinsanity) headed for corner house.. Man, I simply love the place.. Gr8 ice creams and not to forget the chicks...
Kphilips n autoslave had 'death by chocolate'(believe me it is really death by chocolate), I had hoco Bloke.. Man all r chocolate rich.. U'r head begins to pain but all this for the ice creams sake.. hehehee.. Just luv the stuff u get there.... They couldnt finish the ice cream..
Finally autoslave has to go and meet up with his friends, so he too leaves.. The kphilips n i go to Forum.. One of ma friend told she would meet us there.. We walk around the place.. It was about 8:30.. We were starving.. So we go to all the food joints at Forum(Ma Donalds, KFC, etc etc..) and find all of them crowded with people.. So we go out and go to Pizza corner just opp of forum.. Had some pizza n coke.. Then we drive bac to Brigade road.. Go for a walk, had a coffee at Marrybrown(Not many people there)..
At 12 something we drop her back to her place.. And then head to Kphilips's frnd's place.. We were really tired.. Crashed into bed...

9th Jan
Finished all the morning formalities and we head straight to Jakkur.. Artofzen came there directly.. We enjoyed the show and finally leave at 3:15.. We picked up autoslave and then leave back to Cochin.. We stopped at the BMW showroom and clicked some snaps and finally get going.. On the way back we stopped at a place near Hosur for having our dinner..
At about 11:30-12 we reach Cochin.. Dropped artofzen and autoslave and finnaly got to our room.. Crashed into bed!!

10th Jan (After all that fun)
8:45am
Back to work.... grrrrrrrrr!!!!
