More fun during TechED

TechED not only ment technology, but also fun all the while. Having said that, after finishing the Technology part of TechEd, all of us would hop across places at Mumbai to Chill out. The first day of the evening was at Phoneix Mills Compound at Lower Parel. It was Nauzad's idea to have sizzlers. He had an idea of Kobe Sizzlers, being in the compound. So we all were hooked up out there. This is the place where we get delicious sizzlers, a Bombay favorite. Burning hot metal platters piled high with fresh vegetables, fries, chicken or steak, and sauces arrive at your table wafting clouds of steam. The place was simple -- no frills and a bit dark. However the only problem which some had was this place didn't server alcohol, and people had to drink Coke.
So we reach Kobe at around 2100ish and have dinner till 2330ish. Having eaten lots of vegetables (read: sizzler), it was time for some coffee.

So came a idea from all - having a coffee at Barista (Ya!! You heard it right - 2330 hrs we go to have coffee). So we land up at Barista, most of us ordering coffee. All of a sudden, Mahesh and Dhaval come up with a brainwave to pay "Fists of Fury". This seemed a great timepass and fun too - while the coffee was being prepared. The first ones were Abhishek and Nauzad. It was a pretty intersting match which ended up after after about 2 minutes. And yes, it was Nauzad who lost. This is what he said after loosing to Abhishek - "He is my MVP lead, and I've a year-end review comming up in August - so I better lose to him, then screw up my chances of becoming a MVP again". And yes, after that came a huge applause and lots of laughter.

Not to be left behind, Namratha (the lady MVP in the group)said - if Abhishek can do it - so can I. So up came a challenge to Nauzad from Namratha. By this time, the coffees had been server and all of us were "heated up" for cheering them. And what a match it was, with Nauzad loosing to Namratha (ya, Nauzad lost to Namratha). Now here's what he had to say after the second match - "Namratha is new in the community, recently being nominated as a MVP, and I did not want to take away her credits from Abhishek (who is the MVP lead), by winning. I'm always there for the community." So it was all fun time that day and and then even more people got into this. You can view more of the photos from here. In and all it was great fun the first day of TechED.
