Had a wonderful meet near the jetty next to Taj Malabar. People attended:
1)mistakenguy
2)coolclouds
3)recallers
4)dhanushmenon
5)vaisakhr
6)speed.demon
7)naveen.raju
8)BigBrad

After some 'nilpan' discussions which ranged from lulu mall to car mods to alloys to Merc an what not, we shifted to a small canteen nearby for a tea.
Further, we shifted to the waterfront near thoppumpadi old bridge for a photo shoot. Recallers and coolclouds peeled off soon being Easter. We hung around for some more time discussing Ecosport launch and a prospective drive. By sunset, we returned home with the promise to meet some time soon. Once again.

Vaisakh and Bigbrad, waiting for your snap uploads

It was really nice meeting you all. This was my first meet and still, I arrived a bit late.

Here are some pics from my side.

Had a nice quick meet yesterday at Willington Island, Cochin.

This place is quite good for a meet. Calm and not crowded. We should do meet up here often.

Guys its time to think about the drive we were planning. We can start with deciding the location first. Any suggestions? Munnar, Athirappilly etc.?

It was a nice meet indeed. Thanks for the venue dhanush !!

Next time, we should go to the place you were talking about, so that we can avoid "Nilpan"

In other news, I left for Trivandrum at 8 pm and was honoured by the flashes of the speed cameras near Kappalandi Mukku (Kollam) and Parippally !! Reached home by midnight.

Regarding the drive plan, I think we should do it at the earliest, maybe some time in April/May.

Hope you guys had a wonderful time together
I missed the meet by one day. No tickets were available on Sunday because of Easter holidays, so got a bus to Bangalore on Saturday night itself.
And what a coincidence, I was at the same place on Saturday evening you guys met. Hope you guys have seen the beauty AIDAvita(Cruise ship) near the Mooring Jetty.

Had a great time yesterday. Good to see new faces yesterday (Mistakenguy, BigBrad and recallers). The place was perfect for the meet and photo shoot. Thanks Dhanush for the suggestion. Jain, thanks for joining us in spite of your busy schedule.
Awesome snaps Romy and Vaisakh.

@Vineeth - Make your exhaust more visible. Will look good.

@denver - Yes, we did see the cruise ship.

As for the drive, let's plan this May. Athirampilly would be great but I guess the place will be crowded. (Vaisakh, I hope you remember our last drive).

@Abhi - Dont tell me that your company will reimburse the speed tickets too. If so, let me know. Will be glad to forward my resume LOL!

@Naveen: No, my company doesn't pay that. That's why I'm trying to get a company owned/leased Punto 90 hp

@mistakenguy- actually the place was first suggested by Naveen. I just gave directions to reach there.
Well yes, the place for photo shoot was suggested by me.

Athirapally might not do justice for the purpose of a drive per se. It's just regular roads till there. We can rather think of going beyond athirapally to sholayar or topslip (if the roads are good that is). Else we could even consider nelliyampathy or wagamon. What say?

Wagamon should be a good place or beyond Athirimpilly (good place for a photo shoot). I vote for Wagamon.

+1 to that. It'll be a nice trip. I might need another hand for taking the wheel while am shooting
