Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2012

I insisted on going to the Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta last night cuz I got sick and tired of rotting at home throughout the entire school holiday. The victim is of course my husband who had to drive and endure the massive traffic jam in Putrajaya for selfish little me. Parking was almost non-existent and some irresponsible drivers even decided to park their vehicle on the Putrajaya bridge itself. But despite all that, we miraculously managed to reach the fiesta in time…and it was really wonderful.


There’s lotsa  inflated and flamed up balloons by the time we reach the fiesta ground…


There’s all sort of hot air balloons over there…from various parts of the world. But I did not see the famous Darth Vader balloon anywhere this year. 😛 Perhaps Darth Vader has been defeated byLuke Skywalker and couldn’t make it to the fiesta this year.


There’s not only balloons during the light show, but there were also fireworks display along with fire dance performances.

It was quite an experience, I must say, and if you’re asking me if it’s worth all the troubles to go to the fiesta to see those hot air balloons, then my answer is yes. It’s quite worth your time, and quite worth suffering for.

Cleffairy:Tsk tsk… next year I must make a point to get a close up pic and vid of those semi-naked fire dancers. THEY ARE HOT!

    I hate crowds and jams and I can’t stand the heat but if it’s a once-a-year thing and my daughter and missus would like to do, I would go…never mind that I would be dripping wet in my sweat and coming down with heat stroke. That’s part of the giving and taking expected of every husband and wife and family.

      Not all crowds are worth suffering for, actually. And not all once a year event is worth attending… I insisted on going tor this one is because I kiasu…want my anak to have something to tell in school instead of telling his peers he just rot at home only during the hols. 🙁
