Hi jk,

I had buffet and they had a la carte. At 150 per head the buffet was just Ok. Whatever they had, definitely was better in other places.

I would not suggest a trial.

They had a fast food sort of counter. Since my wife did not have a proper lunch, she thought she will have a light snack. So she asked the girl behind the counter (who had to be requested to come to my wife's aide from her perch) to give her a sandwich.

Girl - are you going to eat it here?
wife - No.
Girl - do want it to be warmed up/
wife - yes
Girl - But it will take time, you will have to wait
wife - why? don't you have a microwave?
Girl - No it has to be done on a grill (pointing to something behind her)
wife - Leave it.

If she was not really interested in warming it up, why did she have to ask in the first place?

My wife did not like the sandwich eventually.

All the bearers were youngsters and more interested in chit chat than really bothering about the unnecessary irritants who were walking in to disturb their peaceful time.

I hope I am not biased by the one visit there.

That's it. So Ginger, Byepass, Trivandrum is out of bounds. Any idea of good joints in Trivandrum? We usually avoid Trivandrum for food stops. But this time, the timing was wrong and ended up there.

Sorry for the off topic post!

Eat less food - less chance of food poisoning

I'm about to start for the meet. Gave the car a wash even though I'll be splashing through puddles. Gotta look her best!

Well, to be honest, I haven't heard his setup in the old state of tune. But I'm told the difference is like day and night. Either way, everyone got their braincells rearranged hearing Sivamani's magic belting out of the car. Awesome stuff.

Drive didn't happen though :(

My honest thanks to the TVM BHPians.
It was my best meet till date. In the two previous meets, it was mostly ICE auditions and auto talk. This time also, it was the same but in addition to that I had some 'test drives' . I mean, I didnt drive but made the mistake of sitting in the front seat when two mad guys took the wheel. Sankar and jkdas, kindly explain

I 'm glad that I could rock your ears. Thanks to Zuheimi.
