Default YetiBlog® - 12th February 2008 - continued



We're still walking towards the main event at the heart of BMW Welt. The anticipation is building up, we cross the bike section.






We are greeted with a light and sound extravaganza, before the curtains fall.



The cutains fall! It's dinner AND a show!! I like this BMW place already.

The inside reminds me a bit of Hogwarts castle because of the layout of the dinner table. These tables will be full of representatives of every country in the world.





Dinner begins, wines are being served. We are all talking and chatting happily, waiting to see what happens next. Too much wine and we're all quite happy. I'm having fun with a few colleagues.
The saxaphone is playing and the mood is being set.







Soon the lights dim further. It's showtime!!

Arre Baba, ye sab to theek hai Sam, really nice pics of the show 'n stuff.
Don't tease us so much, we know you had a blast on the M3(apart from kissing men on their heads), how about giving us some insight on the drive.

Ties are recommended, but not mandatory. I refuse to wear them. The stools were uncomfortable, but we were there for dinner and a show. The show was to the side (we were not seated in circles or in auditorium style) imagine if we did have backs on the chairs.
It would be difficult to turn and see the dancers na?

Guys, I'm getting to the cars. Wait na lol.

In between the acts we're served a delectable, if delicate gourmet dinner. The wine is flowing the mood is light and wonderful. Life is good.


Outside of the show we're surrounded by all things BMW. We go down to the restrooms and cloakrooms and we have these touch screens where you can customize you own BMW and send the order straight up to BMW individual. From the toilet.

Here is the picture of TheOne® trying to buy a 7 series in a custom colour.


We go back up and the show continues.









The grand finale. The products are launched. Now we will party. But where's the party tonight?

Default The party is on the terrace!!

That's right, we had to go all the way up to the freezing terrace of BMW Welt where there was a party waiting for us.



A real bar made of Ice!!









There was a real cool DJ and lots of lovely people to dance with.



A lot of drinking and dancing later, it was time to go home. The next few days would be spent at BMW Welt and I would even be going for an insider factory tour.

Work and fun. That's the way to live, isn't it?
