Viva Indonesian Bloggers

Yesterday, 1,500 Bloggers attended the Pesta Blogger 2010 held at Epicentrum Walk, a brand new shopping center located at Kuningan, South Jakarta.

The event began at 8 am with registration followed by an opening ceremony at 10 am and ended at around 5 pm.

I was invited to the event by My Gamma as one of the sponsors, but as I have go to Bogor in the morning, I arrived at the venue at 1.45 pm. Although I was very late but registration went smoothly. I received a ticket (@ Rp. 50.000), lunch and coffee breaks coupons, a decent bag containing books, T-Shirt, etc.

Another reason for me to come to the event was to meet a fellow blogger from Bandung i.e Yari whose blog: http://spektrumku.wordpress.com I have been following for some time.

Although I came rather late but I can clearly see that the event has been well organized, a big thanks to the Chairperson Irayani a.k.a Rara (a Dentist), the organizing committee, as well as sponsors a.o Acer, the US Embassy in Jakarta, My Gamma, Maverick PR Consultant. 

However, the most important factor for the success was the willingness and enthusiasm of the Bloggers to come and participate joyfully and peacefully.

The successful event was a culmination of a series of successful Mini Pesta Blogger 2010 held in other Indonesian cities like Makasar, Manado, Banjarmasin, Banda Aceh, Padang, Yogjakarta.

Some photos of the event can be found in the article that I have quoted from Yari's blog

Bloggers Galore!

If a pic can depict a thousand words then I don’t have to come up with long-winded post telling you how fun the time I had during the Pesta Blogger 2010. Browse the pictures but beware of the maximum resolution of the pics especially for those who browse over a lame broadband connection, it may load forever. Voila tout!


Remember those in misfortune. Natural disasters occurred across the archipelago. This action is to raise money for those in misfortune.

A theatrical action demanding the abolishment of the statutory law of the information and the electronic transaction (UU-ITE)
