Tumplek Blek 2007

img_1098.jpg Tumplek Blek Day One
12 Mei 2007

Bikers pun bisa belanja! Itulah yang terjadi hari ini dan juga besok. Buat yang single mungkin ga ada batasan waktu buat mereka untuk berputar-putar arena tapi buat yang sudah berkeluarga hhmmm … sang anak dan istri pun harus rela mengikuti kemauan si kepala keluarga. Salut buat panitia yang menyediakan arena bermain untuk keluarga buat mereka yang mungkin malas berputar-putar menemani para bapak untuk window shopping kebutuhan kendaraan.

Puluhan stand baik yang menggunakan tenda ataupun menggelar dagangan di rumput mampu menarik lirikan pengunjung, terserah pengunjung apakah berakhir dengan transaksi atau hanya sekedar bertanya-tanya.

Gue ? akhirnya membawa pulang jaket bikers merk CONTIN, shock breaker 38 cm NICETECH, tas HP, gantungan ID Card OTOMOTIF dan glove produksi DTMC. Total ? wah ga usah di broadcast deh, cek sendiri aja ke arena event. Secara umum gelaran Tumplek Blek tertata baik mulai dari penataan stand, arena modifikasi, arena bermain, dan kantin tapi sayang gue td ga menemukan WC umum xixixiii … ga tau dimana tp daripd muter2 nyari mending langsung cabut ke kantor.
