Smile Let me put it in a readable format!

Ram_Hyundai's post!

Crazy ,buckle up! - I bet you people will never expect a place like this near Kayamkulam. I had gone there many times but in a different route which we can follow while coming back. I had gone there before tsunami and after. God! What a change in the terrain, wish you had a glimpse before tsunami, wonderful option for photo shoots so all cams, digi SLRs etc should be a must carry.
Bermuda shorts are also welcome as the final destination is a dream place to plunge in. Hardly hip deep water for almost half a km from beach. Very safe and calm. Good bio life as its a mixture of kayal and kadal. I have seen hermite crabs, prawns etc.. while walking on the beach, 100s of birds, arrays of house boats and all.......

So, it's 2 days left! Hope it's a wonderful one rather than a usual meet and drive.
Ram.
(Corrected by the wierd bearded sinner!)

I have done the favours! Ram, you owe me a drink now.
And what is the meaning of 11:00 sharp???? 11pm, I suppose.

EDIT: It's Zak posting. Please don't hold me responsible.

1100hrs sharp can mean only one thing, 11.00AM! there is no ambiguity there. that time was put up for all people in general, just that mallumullah's name was heading the list.
If Mallumullah feels that the timing next to his name was a pointed reference to his talents....then that might be because of a guilty conscience. The mind can play plenty of tricks on one.

I have'nt had the chance to meet the cochin high priest yet. but certain other senior and distinguished BHPians have painted a picture.
See Below

I think I'm going to have to settle for just this too :( A lot of family responsibilities have fallen on me these days.

Are you guys having a session in Ernakulam in the evening (as in after 5.30PM)? I'd love to meet-up then.

Hi folks,

There is a 'motor strike' called for the 17th with a request to the private vehicle owners to cooperate by refraining from using their vehicles.

Oh. Come on.. Not this time. What about putting a 'marriage' or 'press' paper in the windscreen? Or how about a 'team-bhp meet' sign? Lol.

And just in case you decide to drive, make sure you tank up today - the fuel pump workers are joining tomorrow's strike.

Hmmm........Now I'm thinking otherwise too!

I've done a quick search on the Tv channels and online local newspapers, nothing much reported about the strike. Can somebody please provide the latest info about this?

But! Come on! It's a sunday!! How can somebody strike on a sunday! :

My suggestion is to call off the drive in case of a strike happening. We can always plan for a drive later on. Better safe than sorry.
