15th Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival 2010 067 Today is just the perfect day for a colorful adventure!  It’s Valentine’s day and Chinese New Year at the same time!  To add up to the flavour,  The last day of the 15th Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival 2010 happens today!

Vince and I packed our gears at around 2am.  We have to thank Sony for lending us a very powerful video camera – the Sony Handycam HDR-XR520, and Marquee Mall /Ayala Malls for the Passes!

I drove from the house to Clark while the monkey sleeps… (‘coz I know it’s harder to drive on our way back home kekeke)… It took us only about an hour and a half (including Restroom breaks and snacks).  No traffic at this time!  We arrived at the grounds at 4:30.  We got hungry again so we ate at the kiosks around… The sun wasn’t still up and the whole area is still covered with a black blanket at some glittery stars.

Then, we heard the song “?!?!?” — I forgot what… but I liked the song and it kinda signaled that the balloons are being prepared for flight!  Off we went and take pictures!  I don’t know how to estimate as to how many people were there but It filled the area!

There was a complete list of activities for the day… but I think, our lack of sleep yesterday made it hard for us to keep going.  I would have wanted to see the fireworks as well at night… but we figured… we really were getting restless and tired so we decided to go home instead.  I slept for a few minutes… then I heard the monki slapping himself (lol) He was way to SLEEPY!  We needed to pitstop at a gas station at got our coffees from Gloria Jeans.

 

Anyway, here are my pictures of the Hot Air Balloon Festival… ^_^15th Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival 2010 005

  1. Awwwww! I missed this event. I had to attend a wedding last night and I got home pretty late so I overslept. Sad! Glad you enjoyed…

  2. Ang gaganda naman ng mga hot air balloons na kasama sa festival hannah!

  3. wow, i hate it that this was the first balloon fest that i missed since 2007. the weather this year looks awesome, last year was terrible.

  4. I love how colourful the scene at the Hot Air Balloon Festival…I like! Happy CNY & VDay to both of you! 😀

  5. awww, i wish i’d be able to attend this event next year! been wanting to attend one for sooo long!

  6. walang kasamang free ride yung pass ninyo? my sister went din on saturday pero hindi sila nakasakay. picture picture lang tuloy. pagod ba biyahe? 😛

  7. field pass lang… no free ride :( and it was Sunday, Valentine’s day… I think it was the busiest day of the festival… If ever we do want a ride… malamang hindi kami makakasakay pa rin… Best time to go here are weekdays…

  8. yup! it’s best to go weekday.. but if not ok lang rin weekends… wear comfy clothes like pants and sneakers.. the grass irritated my legs hehe

  9. aww… yeah… last Sunday, it was perfect… it was cloudy… not too hot for the people and yet it isn’t raining 😀

  10. riding the balloon i think goes around $150 since the balloon pilots are from germany, france, etc.

  11. Great pictures! I found your blog because I was looking for pictures from this event. We arrived sooo late and we only saw partially blown balloons because it was so windy. So, I had to show my daughter that those balloons are really capable of flying. Thanks for posting =)
