What a fabulous time we all had last evening at Hyd_Traveller's penthouse garden. Perfect weather, great food and terrific company

It was wonderful to meet RanjitP for the first time

Thanks for super duper arrangements Bajaj Saab

Here are a few clicks of last evening.

Thanks to A4anurag for getting the Appy Fizz from his factory which was consumed in abundance ( was it free? I dont remember if we paid for it)

Kebabs in cold winter evening were fabulous

I am sure the food must have been equally yummylicious,maybe next time I should stay back to gorge on some!I guess one step at a time.Thanks once again for meeting up.As usual available any time for assistance

Excellent arrangements Bajaj Sir. Kudos to you.

I truly had a fabulous time I had such a great time interacting with others TBHPians and yes, this was my first T-Bhp meet.

The food was terrific. Especially rumaali roti and chicken curry and the biryani ofcourse. The highlight were those chocolates..wow, were those really home made? Being a chocolate fan, I loved them. Traveloholic kept the entire lot of himself, next time I am gonna give a tough competition to him.

A4anurag, thanks for getting the Fizz. In total, I gulped down nearly 4 of them at regular intervals.

Nothing comes for free in life. Appy was purchased @ 25% discount.

You did not have to pay for it directly. We all paid for it out of the contributions we collected from all attendees that evening. After you all left, I thought of tasting it but could not find even one bottle left though cola and sprite was left behind.

Well, it is easier to identify by handles first time.

The food was yummy. Details follow.

I had to miss this.
This meet looks more interesting than 'restaurant' meets. Seems dinner meet had more takers than drive meets. We should do this often.

So, Christmas meet on the cards... eh?

Ranjit, thanks for inputs and suggestions. Stuck/tried to pretty much what you said/suggested. The Pondy trip was very good. As this was my maiden drive, nothing to complain, nothing to compare

I hate home made (own home) Chole-Kulche so unluckily you may have to wait for a very very long time.

Hurricanes replied, "You are in queue, sir, please hold, I am in line before you."

Guys, lets stick to English, the forum language, or add the translation for the benefit of others (I have done it on your behalf this time) but let me not play spoilsport and frankly tell you both, the Hyderabadi Hindi used by both of you is awesome and it has me in splits and into total raptures. No translations can capture the true essence of the way you both have said it and meant it. Keep it up!!!

Since there is no thanks button in this section, lots of thanks to mobike and hyd_traveller for the photos and writing out the credits. Glad to see and know a good number of hyd tbhpians. While I don't have any false hopes of joining a meet any sooner (personal constraints), am happy to be content with the photos and report, please do keep them coming.

Like the candid response.

Sure, hope to treat you with more photos next year as December is jam-packed for me so no more meets this year

Btw, whenever I see the 'hunter doing circles' ad of cruze, it reminds me of your white annihilator. Nice ad for a great car.
