When was the last Indiblogger meet held in Bengaluru? Last time around I remember it was still officially called by its colonial name Bangalore. I lost count but in the ensuing gap, I lost a lot of hair, got more wrinkles, the teeth have got shakier and the belly has got bigger but not the spirit to attend a Indiblogger meet. Hence, there was no way I would miss the meet and added attraction was it was being sponsored by Asus, a company which has some smart technologies. I welcome the move by Indiblogger to insist on photo id given the uncertain times we are in.
I mean there would be very few hosts who feed you, give you gifts, introduce you to some great products and also entertain. That’s what the team at Indiblogger does and I’m very thankful to them for that. The theme of getting maximum things from others was unique and refreshing. The best ice breaker I would say and Kudos to Anoop for that. I was in no mood for giving anything to anybody except my unpaid bills and stinking socks. There was this nice guy who asked only for a name, which I obliged.
Next up was the presentation by the Asus team which was good but most of it went above my head given my technologically handicap. Recently, I have purchased a laptop but if I have to buy a replacement, ASUS EEBOOK will be on top of my list, having had a touch and feel experience. The fact that the presentation did not hog much into the time of the meet has increased my goodwill for Asus.
The meet had a regular and constant supply of starters and cool drinks which kept the spirits going and batteries. As usual there was a game at the end and my team got to enact a self made skit from the movie `300’ in support of blogging and we did an average job out of it. The team which did the bollywood skit was amazing. After that it was time for a group snap and before that Anoop had promised that everybody who has attended the event and blogs about it will get a voucher. That explains the reason for this blog.
The food served was great and the best part of it was the Mutton Biryani and the desserts, they were out of Earth. Only disappointment was no t-shirts were distributed this time and Indiblogger has no idea how much of publicity they lost from my end because I frequently wear their t-shirts for jogging. Jokes apart, it was a great meet and hope to have many more coming. I meet up with a lot of old friends and also made quite a few new ones. The Asus Indiblogger Meet 2015 was a sleek way to start the weekend.
