Did you visit the place? Enough parking space available for cars? I have not been there for a very very long time.

Woodlands has got a huge parking space. You can even park in the small side road beside Woodlands if parking is full. HSB also available opposite Woodlands but it's a fast food chain and doesn't have enough parking space. There are two restaurants inside woodlands, Vrindavan and South Indian restaurant. Vrindavan is a buffet type and buffet menu won't be vast. Marina beach is very nearby too.

Indeed, it is ample. One would have to clash with a combination of hotel full house and two or three large weddings (they have that amount of wedding-hall space available) to have any trouble parking. Of course, I've only ever been there with one car --- but I don't think we will have a problem.

Inside the gate, unless directed otherwise by the staff, drive straight rather than turning right into the car park in front of the hotel.

It might be a good idea for one of you guys (speaking Tamil would help [Blush]) to call re tables and car-park space.

I've never been to Vrindavan restaurant. I think it is a bit posher and may have non-Indian food, although I would expect all to be strictly veggie. The main restaurant is fine, and serves good food.

I have my sleeping pill ready. I'll be in bed by 10.00pm. I'd like to say that the rest will be in the lap of the gods, but an atheist doesn't have that luxury!

Hi,

I spoke with them - could not drive down - had some work exigencies. I did call them courtesy arul sir's reference, but the person at the other end could only confirm that they have ample parking. We should meet up at the Krishna restaurant which is a la carte.

For guys who haven't met me before - Look out for the fat north Indian guy wearing the official F1 Malaysian GP shirt!

Well, 10.30

Then my biological clock woke me around 11.30. Listened to some music and fell asleep again.

Should be leaving home within about half an hour, but won't be very intelligent <blush>

Very nice meet. Sorry for being somewhat subdued due to biological clock, and a bit deaf, which, sadly, lasts all day!

Was thinking to go to 11.30 concert, but then decided to come home and take rest, Have a house concert to go to at 4pm.

Power was off when I left here this morning. It is still off, and EB guys are digging on the corner. I should have gone to the concert and had music and air conditioning!

New Woodlands was crowded --- but nobody hassled us for staying two hours.
