The 20th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.



Bata pa lang ako gustong gusto ko na ang mga hot air balloon. Nakikita ko lang ito sa post cards, magazine and sa tv. Di ako aware na may ganitey sa Pinas siguro mga 3 years ago lang nung nalaman ko na may paganyan. Where have I been ba and I'm not up to date with this kinds of event?


Last year, some of my bloggers friends want to see it up-close. wanting to join too, it's just that the call time is sooooo early and I can't commute alone pa-meeting place so, decline ang lola nyo. Buti na lang DaddyO's super friends in the office came up of the idea to make gala and punta :P

Agreed call time is 3am. Dahil super excited ako I asked around sa mga bloggers friends kung kamusta and what to expect sa event. I asked the masters of blogging Sir Azrael of Azrael's MerryLand Blog, Sir Ted od Wazzup.Ph and Papa Enzo of  JuanManilaExpress and iisa ang common advice nila. Be there early dahil super traffic. *As Early as 12am nga daw for a 5pm event :)

Nung una I though it's kinda oa, pero these guys wont play joke noh! Sila mismo umalis ng 3am from QC pa and arrived just in time. So I asked hubby if pwede bang change time, kaso it cant be na kasi bukas na eh and sleep na ata ung friend nya na kasama.

Eto na nga,di ako makatulog :P EXCITED MUCH!!!
Hit the road at 3am and mabilis naman ang travel namin. Stop over muna saglit to grab breaky and wait for the other friends na kasama.

Ang lameeeeeeeeg!!!

We were already around the area mabagal lang talaga usad papasok ng venue :( Nagdadalawang isip ako if bababa ng sasakyan at tatakbuhin na papasok or mag picture na along the fence :P Kaso afraidsung akong malost in space. Bukod sa mahirap ang signal, pa-drain na ang battery ko kakakalkula kung ilang minutes pa bago makapasok :P 

From our ride, we can saw what's happening inside the field. Feeling thankful at di nasunod ang 5am sched :) May chance pa makahabol!!! Kaso usad pagong talaga to non moving. Even the other people from their vehicle step out na and took pix. Day3 schedule here

 And this broke my heart :( Program is about to start na!!!
Iiyak na ba ako?
Itigil ang pag inflate!!!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

And that's it!!! Up and Up They Go :(

At the corner of my mind, feeling ko inaasar pa ako lalo ng balloon na ito. This supposed to be facing the crowd but it is facing us saying....


And as it flew, it took my heart with it :( hahaha! But still can't hide my kilig and excitement. Dream Come true pa din!!! And nagkasya na lang sa pag-picture from the other side :)

Ang sabi, A weekend of everything that flies... Nagulat ako ng may isang familiar sound sa ere. Kinabahan ako ng bongga! Eto pala!!!

Grabe kaya yung nerbyos ko :P 

Di ko lang maalala maige pero this happen when I was small. after sumabog ang Pinatubo may Earth quake, ash fall etc. A day ata after that happened pabalik balik yung "tora-tora" as my nanay called it. Super inggay as if nasa may bubungan lang. Grabe much nagpanic talaga ako. Nun ko na lang ulit narinig tong ingay na toh ever! Tas napatingin na lang ako sa view ng Balloon Fest. 

Ehem! Mt. Pinutubo Hello!!! Kalma ka lang jan!!!
Ay MALI!!! Mt. Arayat pala toh :P
