Big, awesome, Cute, Freedom, FUN ! It can be anything. We pop over to Putrajaya’s 5th International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta last Friday, and took some photos with a SMURF !

We arrive at 0615 to catch the preparation. First ship will fly off around 0730 till 0900. Read the FAQs here. Families turn out in full force, excitement lingers in the air.
Gary from USA was a fun pilot, he keeps shouting 5,4,3,2,1 to attract photographers’ attention ! We can feel the flame from 5m away.
Someone even peek at us from behind the tree line. Tethered rides are available for the adventurous.
We heard Darth Vader and Doraemon has even appeared in previous Hot Air Balloon fiestas !
