Since I missed the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark, Philippines early this year, I made sure that I will not miss the chance to take pictures of such gigantic balloons when they landed here in Malaysia. With such enthusiasm, my co-workers and I went straight from night shift work and some from their off to see these in person.
It was disappointing that only few balloons were available for public ride and they are tied onto the ground. Ergo, the balloons can only fly a few feet above the ground. If they held the venue in a wider and more open space like in Clark Airfield, there would be more air flight shows, parades, family activities and such.
To my dismay, I just enjoyed the event considering it is a mini-team building event with friends at work.
Below is a short video while walking from the field back to where we park.
