Dinner Will be Served...!!!
No offenses to anyone(ASUS or Indiblogger). Everyone is putting the traditional header. So I thought, let me put the actual title for the post. The line which tempted many to come for the meet. Partially true for myself too. Don't believe me, ask anyone. One fellow even mentioned it on being asked his reason to come there is, "It was mentioned in the mail that Dinner will be served."
Okay...lets get back to business. The reasons why I went to the meet...???
Asus reminded me of my first computer, which is now more than 10 years old. It has Asus motherboard and its still working. So our relationship goes way back and personal. That's why I had to go. The products are very reliable. Similarly, Zenfone series, never heard any shits about it. Their attempt in the phone market is really successful unlike Moto G, where reactions were mixed. And now they have released EeeBook X205TA.
The specs, considering the price range, are really good. Lets hope this also succeeds like their other initiatives.
Now few other reasons which were equally responsible for me going for the meet...
I always used to think that "Corporate" is scary. Actually it proved to be right. Just 6 months into the job(still 2 days short of it) and I've almost stopped visiting my own page forget about scribbling something. I saw elders getting exhausted after days work and I used to wonder how sitting on chair in front of a screen exhausts you? Well it does. You don't feel like doing anything after that. Just have dinner and surrender yourself to your bed. I don't even feel like opening the laptop for movies... :(
Anyways...life is crazy...By giving weird opportunities it keeps on reminding you things from your past...sometimes they might be good one, sometimes bad... This time it proved to be good. the invite for an Indiblogger Meet by Asus reminded me that I have a blog(my dearest of all)... ;)
Also, Initially I was like "Kya yaar Friday ko rakh di meet, saturday yaan sunday ko rakh dete to kya chala jata". Then I realized..."Dude, Stretch the weekend...Leave early from office... :D" After all the venue was ITC Gardenia. Who'll miss it...??? Especially when they have mentioned specifically in the mail that DINNER WILL BE SERVED. So I reached the Venue directly from office with the Laptop and all other accessories I take to the company. ;)
So, after reaching there, as always I expected it to be a partially entertaining and partially boring...But thanks to Indiblogger and my small gang there, it was real fun. Games, Snacks and the most important part for any IT guy is the opportunity to get introduced to any latest gadget which is being released to the market. It started with usual fun activities and fortunately continued on and on. No one realised that how 4 hours passed. Everyone was fresh and energetic even though they have already spent their whole day at office and came.
Anyways, for those who missed the meet, you missed the first Indiblogger meet of 2015. So lets conclude with some pics:
Someone was targetting some real candid shots...!!!
Few of us...!!!
With the Boss from Asus..!!!
PS: Now finally a request for Indiblogger Organizers: There was a long gap this time between the meets, please do it more frequently for the sake of us(IT guys). We really need a break at regular intervals... :(
PPS: Once again, for those who missed it, Dinner was awesome ;)
