#FlipkartOutdoors blogger Meet @ MangoMist resorts, Bangalore

So last Saturday (20th Feb. 2016), I went to MangoMist resorts in Bangalore to attend the #FlipkartOutdoors indiBlogger meet. The entire day was filled with informative and fun activities. In this post, I’ll recollect some interesting happenings on that day through photos.

Flipkart executive introducing the purpose of the bloggers’ meet and the activities lined up for the day. 

Garmin (almost) smart but precision measurement watches to measure the no. of steps walked, calories burned, etc.

Samsung (real) smart watches with actual apps. There is a circular ring along with a couple of buttons to navigate and select options. These watches come with a stylish charger too.

Red Chief’s ‘lightest’ leather shoe!

Altec Lansing’s rugged water-proof speakers: Water literally dances on it. There is even a mount to fix these speakers on your bike handle bar!

Coleman Party Stacker to store and carry hot and cold foods during an outing.

Adventure games at Mango Mist Resorts, Bangalore:

Of course, I didn’t try any of these ‘stressful’ and ‘dangerous’ adventure games shown above. The games I did try were –

Archery:

Shooting:

Fish Spa:

Needless to say, I loved the above three ‘adventure’ activities 😛 I should mention that I hit the same bottle twice in the 5 shots I got while shooting. Being an NCC top shooter helped after all! Archery was slightly more difficult as I was trying it for the first time. However, I hit all 5 arrows on the board, and two of them within the red circle. I missed yellow, though!

There were some more indulgences like,

Mocktail 🙂

Rain dance 🙂

OK, I will stop the photos here. Otherwise, you might burn with even more jealousy 😛

At the end of the wonderful meet, many bloggers played ‘Paint ball’. I thought it would be some dangerous combat game with guns that’ll spoil my fashionable clothes. So I didn’t participate. But all of them were given military clothing and the ‘combat’ was so non-dangerous that one might even check their mobile updates in the battle field 😛 Next time I will make sure to play this one too 🙂

Thanks to Flipkart and indiBlogger for arranging such a wonderful meet 🙂 I hope such meets could be arranged at Chennai too, in the future. But Bangalore is a wonderful city to visit occasionally anyway 😉

PS: BTW, just one day before this meet I got engaged to Ramya Ishwarya. Our marriage has been fixed in the month of June 🙂
