It was a nice little meet.
These two photos were taken outside Vasantha Bhavan:
From L - R: para_7k, Nitrous, rr_zen, Mi10, bblost, ElantraGT & Perakath. The boy in the foreground is my son Aravind. He is an avid reader of TBHP, and wants to have his own handle. He feels he is eligible as he already owns a vehicle (a Hercules Bravo EX)

These photos were taken inside the restaurant by Aravind. As the light was low and he used a 2 MP Mobile phone camera, clarity is not so good. rr_zen is requested to post a few photos taken with his Canon digital camera. The last photo shows me and my son.

nice pics and good it turned out to be as planned.
I see that some of you were not eating? Missing the meat at the meet ?

No, everyone ate! It is just that their plates have been cleared away and second order had not arrived when the photos were taken! (And I am a very slow eater!).The food was good, but not as good as HSB, IMO. But on the flip side, such a relaxed talk would not have been possible at HSB.

Looks good... I prefer VB food to HSB (which abbreviation makes me think HSBC!) but not their toilets!

If I had not gone out with my wife at 11.00 I wouldn't have eaten this this weekend, but even when we got back I slept again. Washed out day. Totally.

Please do this again soon, but make it lunch! --- or 10.00am breakfast!

May be a lunch meet at the same place or at the Palavakkam place mentioned by Perakath, after Diwali?

That would be great, yes... I have no idea what that Green meadows place is like; quite curious to know.

Probably more expensive than Vasantha Bhavan!

Yeah - it's more expensive. I've had breakfast there a couple of times (I live like 2 mins away ) and it's pretty good food albeit a bit expensive.

I had posted pics of the place on another thread:

Hi Guys

That was a great meet. I thoroughly enjoyed the meet. The best thing is that I found that RR_Zen is a colleague of mine, Mi10 works in the same building, Para_7k looks familiar as though I have met him some time back and BB_Lost lives close by to my friends place. Thanks for the trip guys and thanks to Aravind (& ganesh too) and RR_Zen for taking pictures. My wife pointed out that we have not taken the photos of our rides... :(

Just came home after taking my car for an AC service. I was kind of reluctant to leave my ride there so waited 6 hour to get the AC cleaned. That’s a big story guys.. I found a service center which is awesome. I will share that experience in a later thread. He charged me 2K but the kind of work that went in is just amazing. The result is that with the blower at 1st speed mode I am getting superior cooling which my vehicle lacked all this while.

anekho, I think I remember the pics on that post of yours from when you made it. We can't be far away; I live on the canal side of Palavakkam

Hari, you are correct. I have the same feeling too. Thats the only thing missing in today's meet. Having said that, I dont think that the place we gathered was the right one to take snaps of our rides. Lets get this done without fail next time !
