First Metroblogging Karachi Meetup

IMG_0753.jpgThe team of metroblogging karachi had their first meetup on Sunday. We met at Shahrah-e-Faisal Dunkin Donuts. The turn out was pretty good. There were 9 people who showed up, including myself, Altamash, Aman, Saba, Huma, Hafsa, Saad, Rizvi, and Hafsa’s friend Hamna (though she is not one of the authors at karachi metblog). For me the biggest surprise of the evening was that Aman and I went to same college and were in same class but I never knew it until I met him at the meetup. It’s a small world, as they say.

The gathering was amazing. Everyone had an extra ordinary sense of humor. Everyone looked great. I am proud to be a member of such telented team.

In the picture you can see (from left to right) Saad, Aman, Altamash, Myself (Umar), Huma, and Saba. Don’t be surprised if Huma and Saba look alike. They are twin sisters!

In this picture you can see same people, except that Rizvi is hiding between Saad and Aman. I don’t know why he’s feeling so shy. And you can see Hafsa’s arms. Blame it on Hamna who took the picture.

This is the best one. I tried my best to get Rizvi in the frame but he kept hiding behind me. Why are you keeping such a low profile, dude?

Hafsa also took some pictures with her camera, which will be posted as soon as they are available.

    WOW what a get together – I really did miss the chance to meet you all – honestly I was ‘this close to making it’, but missed out due to a family emergency

    A good solid smart looking bunch of Karachi Bloggers – Will surely make it a point to arrive on the next metblog gathering
