Ok.
It's too late. But as they say, better late than never. Eh?

A weekend it was and a very calm sunday (as usual).
I woke up at 5 (as usual). I had some 3digits of missed calls and messages in my phone screen (as usual), Yawwn!!!
Hmmm.. I go thru it and I 've got to jump out of my bed before A S H V I N makes his entry. Every Bhpian here is awaiting to lay their eyes on the Landy the Landmaster. A quick shower, freshen up and Yo!
Me, JayD, Mah1r & the fat ball head sits in front of the waterfront balcony at JayD's house. Come on! Guys suggest a place for today's meet. Everybody has the same answer; ANYWHERE! (as usual). Phone calls to Nikkibike, RipperGeo, Steeroid etc.. The only question is does anybody want to get sloshed tonight?
The one and only Disgusting BhPian of Kerala wants to be sober tonight so, everybody is happy to stay away from booze.
Some options are discussed before we come to the decision of Travancore court. A new hotel with some very good interiors and good food. It's time for Sms (as usual). Every bhpian (well, almost) is sent an sms regarding this very short noticed, quick meet which was named as The Landmaster meet. Many are happy to see the sms but are tied up with something and can't come. So, we only have about 10 YES replies.
Travancore court is going to get some BHP today!

By now, the sun was far shooed away into the horizon (as usual). It was time for the infamous mosquitoes to make its' presence felt (as usual). The infamous head was left uncovered (as usual). We decided to move on!
Which car? That's the next important question.
As it is the landmaster meet, the Maruti Suzuki SS80 is the one put on duty. It's a good feeling. People look and give us way as A S H V I N has his small hands out of the window controlling the traffic. We reach near Steer's apartment to find out that he has already left with the Landy. We proceed to the venue.

Kphilip and his better half is on the way to Cochin from their native in a passenger train (as usual). Nikki becomes the designated driver and picks them up from the station and arrives at the hotel.
ArtofZen has a flight to catch the very next morning and a dinner to host before that. But still he drops in to meet us all. Puyyappila arrives in his Fiesta and we all gather in front of the hotel chatting and laughing. A S H V I N & Mah1r tries their best to finish the packs of Yves Saint Laurents up in smoke which ArtofZen had bought with.
It's not long before we see the Landmaster zipping past us. All the waiting souls cry in disbelief. Woaaah!! It takes a while before everybody looks at each other and questions, where is he gone? Has he missed the hotel? Call him. Call him. The man is driving and he don't want to be disturbed from what he enjoys most (as usual).

We decide to move into the restaurant and wait while the Landy returns.

To be continued... (as usual)..

Looks like you folks had a lot of fun. Why are there no pics of the Landmaster itself? Some pics, pleez!

I feel bad for not being able to make it for this one. I'd been out all day on "visits" and had just got home when you folks called. I had (quite) a bit of work to finish, or I'd have tried and make it a bit late, at least.

Lazy bones! Why dont you get your multicolour self outta your freezer section to the classics section??

Btw, In true kerala style, we had no landmaster for the landmaster meet! People actually thought the restaurant was called Landmaster!!! But thankfully the car stopped its Mr bean style flashes and turned up before the meet was over!!

Aaaaarrrrgh! I'm in Coimby today evening.

But I do think a mini-meet today will be fun for those who attend. We have some newly ICEd rides in the city *wink*

@JayD, I completely missed that thread. Duh!
