Zaheer Kidvai (aka ZAK) and myself have been toying about with an idea to meet up, i.e. us Bloggers in .PK, so we decided to eventually do just that. Last Saturday (30th September, 2006) – the last day to file taxes – a couple of bloggers met up at my place.
My wife Anika and myself played hosts to:
Sabeen (also known as Beanz) – her blog can be read here. Sabeen happens to be the COO of b.i.t.s.
Dr. Awab Alvi (also known as the Teeth Maestro) and had his claim to fame with respect to PKBLOGS.COM and BLOGGERS.PK also dropped by He was accompanied by his wife Sadiqa. Dr. Alvi’s blog can be read here. He is a Dentist by profession if you did not already guess and works at the Alvi Dental Clinic (3rd generation dentist if you can believe that).
The there was Maleeha Azeem (better known as Bluecheese). Maleeha was visiting from Lahore and decided to extend her stay by one day (thank you!) so she could join us. Maleeha works for a consultancy firm out of Lahore and she is an avid photoblogger. Her original blog is hosted at Flickr and can be seen here, she has also recently started OrganicSteam – the new address of her photoblog.
Insiya Syed also visited – Insiya’s stay was brief, but hey – she showed up – so that is what counts. Insiya’s blog can be read here and her photoblog can be read here. Accompanying Insiya was Moizza Sarwar – who too stayed for a short while, but amassed extra-ordinary intelligence of our household! :) Moizza’s blog can be read here. I never did ask where Moizza worked.
Madeeha Syed was also invited, but since she’s recovering from surgery, she could not make it. Madeeha’s blog can be read here.
I’ll post some pictures from the evening in a day or two.
