A lot of hot air, no balloon

Just like some of you, we went to Putrajaya for the well-published Hot Air Balloon show last month (on the last day of the event). It was our first time there and we’re looking forward to see the giant balloon flying in the sky, especially for Sarah, as she’d learned the word and see it from TV before.

We arrived at the location about an hour earlier before the show time; the sun was scorching hot but luckily we found a shady place near the lake. There are also other activities going on like Water Ball riding and Zord Ball; Sarah enjoyed watching these big balls where people kept rolling and rolling inside it.

Then here comes the disappointment part, just when it was about time for the balloon to launch, the sky turned cloudy; then as the crews started pumping the hot air, it rain cats and dogs! So people have to run for their cars (including us).

Basically the balloons never got the chance to lift up to the sky, but at least Sarah could have a glance of it from far. Nevertheless, I am still managed to take some photos, and hope we have a better luck next year.

BoeyJoey said...

aiyo... all the way and no show :-(. but at least Sarah got a glimpse of the hot air balloons :-)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Yea, so frustrating and disappointing right. Next year, hopefully we have a better view of the hot air balloons.

Luckily she did not complained because she did have a glimpse of the balloons. And she got her first helium balloon from mommy.
