Just back from an adrenalin pumping meet!

Test drives conducted today,
My Rocket by furiousphinx & himanshu.
The Punto of furiousphinx by Ravendra & Anurag.
Beep Beep aka the Getz crdi by himanshu.

And a brief battle for paying the bill!

I think it's a good time to start a kalti list! LOL.

Fordmanchau has the task of identifying all the BHPians who turned up today in the pics he will be posting!

I am sorry guys for not being able to make it. I was stuck all the way on the other side of the city and took me too long to get to where you guys were. Nevertheless, hope you guys had a mighty blast and cant wait to read the write up and see the pictures *ahem*ahem*

Hi aadix, it was good to meet you too and everybody else. It was a nice meet.

small update: zen91 and mobike008 were neck-to neck when we left the place. I tried to keep up to them with my stock Ikon, but then came beep beep from behind and gone.
Did hold the palio GTX for some time, but then it was not meant to be like that. Couldn't even see them after they overtook me.

arey kirkiri hope you took some pain killer and all .. with your 'tentative' status no one was expecting you to make it anyways

strange,even the cute hostess could not tempt you to come over with bandages and all ( if any..lol) that would have been one sight .lol(just kidding)

Nice pics., although- no offence Fordmanchau- the "red-eye" does give a MJ thriller effect!
(BTW, aankhen aa gayi kya in sabku?? )

As for me, I was stuck in Ramkoti (mainly with the traffic there!) after work that evening, then had to go direct to Himayathnagar. I know HST would still be more considerate to me as far as making it was concerned.....but then it'd have turned out to be a wayyyyyy long drive back home, on an activa!

PS: 'need help in identifying some of the newbie guys in the pics please.

Also no pics. with the star attraction- Ms. "CH"??

Incidentally, a little bird later told me she didn't turn up (literally) to everyone's expectations that evening?

We all were 2-3 pegs down, so probably the red eye takes care of our natural expression(devilish!!!!).
I guess everybody have met each other before and I was the only newbie.
In the 2nd pic, I am standing between Raveendra and Rajesh Rawal.

The little bird gave you the correct information.
P.S : everybody seems to be in a holiday mood!!!

That was an awesome meet on Friday and it was as usual fun meeting you guys. The food was just about ok'sh, i just liked the veg sheek kebabs and i absolutely didnt enjoy the biryani. It was dry and didn't hit the spot as it was supposed to. So i am disappointed in that department ( apart from other department). I reckon the service was deliberately made slower so the stipulated 2-hour service ticked faster with fewer servings ( trick of these hotels). Overall, the ambience was out of this world and service and food quality was not up to that levels.

Next day, i got a call from the hostess apologizing for the problems we had while settling the bill and i expressed my unsatisfaction of the way things went and she mentioned next time ( if that ever happens) will personally stay back and attend to us till we wind up.

It was nice to meet Satish after such a long time. And, also the meet newbies like Aadix and Fordmanchau, hope you folks enjoyed.

There were quite a few test drives happened that day with folks ripping the e-zen,Getz CRDi and Punto in the hotel compound ( which had an almost 0.5 km straight stretch).

After getting intoxicated with all those test drives, we headed out for home at around 1:30AM and there was a little fun enroute with me, Brajesh and Absynthguzzler unleasing our respective beasts to its full potential.

If i recall correctly, abysnthguzzler had a close call when he overtook me from left and suddenly a lorry appeared in front of him and he went of the left shoulder and overtook it from left. Not sure what speeds we were doing but it was well above 100kmph at that point of time.

On saturday met with my lawyer friends at a service apartment they own and our meeting went on for over 8 hours ( more time than i spend at office....LOL). During our discussion about team-bhp outings et.all he graciously asked me to conduct the next meet there. It is a superb destination just behind Mainland China on Rd.No.1 Banjara Hills with large ( over 2200 sq.ft) 16 apartments and a terrace garden that we can use for a meet. They have an in-house kitchen so food won't be a problem. I can vouch for their cut-mirchi and Fish Fry ( very good). what say?

Before the service apartment meet which can happen sometime next month, we need to plan the haleem meet.

Let me come up with a suitable date soon ( unless some of you folks have a date in mind already).Pulsar56, when are your snaps coming up?

Till we meet next time
