Default Oh, God! I aM In for a heaVenly driVE! Catch it live.

Yes! It is an indeed confusing thread title to begin with.

Just arrived from Mangalore in the afternoon and here I am, waiting for the boarding announcement for my next flight. Yes! From here, I am on a very much heavenly journey. This trip is going to be a very rememberable one including some great parties, team BHP meets, auto shows and great drives.

I'll keep on typing in a live feed with pictures. So, don't go away!

07:10pm. Boarding flight SG504 to Bangalore.

Ok. As I told earlier, this trip contains a lot of mixed travelling. Flights, cars (some mighty ones too), trains, walking, autorickshaws, taxi cabs, etc...,

08:20pm, Bangalore HAL airport.

This is really bad now! Uh! Stuck in a glorious traffic jam. Very usual for Bangalore. It's as bangy it can get.
The weather is perfect. It's way cooler than what it was at Cochin.
The flight SpiceJet was nothing to comment off. Boring over make'd up girls acting as Air hostesses. One had a very gloomy face explaining the tiredness of flying all the day. The aircraft had taken off from Kolkata in the early morning, been to Chennai, then to Mumbai, then to Delhi, before it arrived at Cochin (came to know this from the captain while he was trying to explain the reason of being delayed).

08:50pm, Sitting in an Indica taxi cab. Waiting with all the patience to reach RICE BOWL!
What's at RICE BOWL?? Just wait and see.

08:51pm, taxi driver jumps a red light. Gets caught. He asks me for 50 rupees which I an sure I'll not get back (I'm in a prepaid taxi, so I don't own him anything), but I lend him the note and he keeps that comfortably in the Inspector's hands behind his A$$! :
MAAMLA KHATAM.

Will be back at RICE BOWL!

Arrived at RICE BOWL! With 2 bags and walked in to the restaurant everybody around there looking at me with dropped jaws. It takes me a while to notice all the team-bhpians sitting in some dark corner. Walks straight to them and shake hands with all. (People are yet close their dropped jaws).

09:45pm, having a nice time with Moderators, Distinguished ones, seniors and bhpians.
There's a momo on the menu too!

Pictures coming soon after the party is over.
