if you can make it in a big balloon, make it soon – Get Here
Took me years to make it to the big balloon…but at least the experience was beyond words.
It started with blog checking given it was postponed from its original schedule last February. I was able to managed and found a good deal from one of those online travel agency covering Hot Air Balloon Festival plus Zoobic Safari side trip for Php 1650/pax. My friends and I booked and scheduled the trip last week April 13 (last day) given Ate June will be arriving from Cebu around lunch time a day before the trip, Philmar will be busy at work and another girl friend of Ate June who will be joining. Meeting place at Eastwood around 10PM for the 1am pickup at Bluewave, MOA.
Pretty much excited, given it will be another experience I personally was looking forward to fulfill this year. Arrived around 4AM local time and we waited for almost an hour for the gate to open and Balloon fly out was set to start at 5:30AM. Since it was the last day, a number of spectators gathered and anxiously waited for the first and so on balloons to be flown that day.
Colored and figured balloons completed everyone’s excitement, from ice cream to angry bird, to motor racer, to germ-like figure, to train, to bee, to beer glass and other exciting designs.
