On the Mullah's request, I've booked 7 places on the Radisson Dhow Cruise for tonite at 8.30 pm. I will book more spaces if we have further confirmations, please PM or phone me.

If the Mullah does not turn up, he will foot the bill for the whole crowd. Thats Dhs.135 x number of attendees.

Also, the Mullah cannot be late unless he plans to swim if he's late - this is a BOAT.

Please ensure you are at the Radisson, Dubai Creek (formerly the Intercontinental for the oldies) by 8.00 PM.

If you dont turn up, I will still collect the money from you. I'm off to Al Ain now, please call me on my phone number if you need to contact me - else, see you there at 8.

Guys! See you all at 8. I'll try my best not to get wet. Else, please keep the towels ready.

135dhs per person is a good rate. Thank you Mr. Steeroid for organising.

Just got back. There is only one major highlight from this "meet":

THE MULLAH WAS ON TIME. Better still, he was the first to arrive.

Enough said!

It was a cool, nice meet.
As a norm, we had to make things late. Nothing happens on time when some Bhpians get together on a meet. A major difference this time was: we made the whole boat wait! It left the shore around 10 mins late. We decided to push the late comers into the creek and carry on before they pitched up and started shouting. Just as the captain pulled the ropes and they would've left stranded ON THE ROCKS, a certain Ninu came to the rescue. Thanks to the beautiful voiced lady, everybody where on board and we rocked on!

From then onwards, it was all fun, laughter and thrilling.
As usual, we had lots of laugh in the expense of Bhaiyyaji mundu&Tirewale (It won't be long before you'll become part of all our meets, Ishan). We made sure Joz sticks to his detox concoctions with the help of his wife Anju. And it was great to meet their friends, Mathew and Susan.
Wheeler was on diet coke, V1kram was all black labeled, Steeroid worshipped Chivas! There was some wine, ginger ale, plenty of Soda and I heard somebody asking for JayD!

We discussed about planting a Super bike at Autodrome, a CTS-V going to be owned by a beautiful lady who can take you places in 6 minutes, A 550i in place of Sonata and usual stuff like a haunted Alto, an engine swapped Yaris and a very boring dream of an RX8. As it is the historic race weekend, Singapore wasn't very far too.

There was a phone cam, a Sony digicam and a securely locked up in the boot of my car, Nikon something D. Please upload the pics guys!

Overall, a good enjoyable evening. Thanks everybody for making it.
In urgency and short of proper plans and time, we couldn't call up everybody. Guys! Sorry for that.

So!
Until the next one, here's a big thumbs up to team-bhp for giving me friends in almost every corner of the world.
Thanks once again!
