Sorry my dear, you caught quite off guard but I'd never regret that I have invited you, you make it more memorable though.
|Hot air balloon of SM, first balloon which fired up|
This annual event is held once again in Clark, Pampanga. Just 2 hours drive from Manila. Organized by Captain Joy Roa and PIHABF executive director. Yearly, thousands of spectators have traveled and photographed gigantic colorful balloons in Clark airfield. This is one of the most highly anticipated events almost coincide with the celebrations of the Valentine's day in the Philippines which shouldn't be miss out!
We were so excited. I don't really know what to expect. I guess, we're both clueless kasi hapon na. hihi
|We enjoyed various kites in the air|
When we arrived in Clark airfield, I immediately noticed numerous kites in the air. So in nearly 4pm, this is what to expect. No more hot air balloons. Just kites. But still, I can't help but smile everytime I turn my head up. I felt like a kid all over again while dancing in the tune of the wild wind... Even we're kinda late, it still worth it to witness such. Hindi ako magkandatuto mag picture!!
|Different colors and sizes of kites exhibitions|
While waiting for the night glow, me and my friend stirred up to different stuffs. Like having a couple of ASTIG poses with the army...hahaha. I was a bit shocked that there were really uniformed army who allowed taking pictures with them. (artista?) There was a band, a few static army displays, booth and different military vehicles. Siempre, hindi namin ito pinalampas. ..papavoom! I wonder if they're all real military troops. Puro sila busy sa picturan eh. hehe peace po mga kuya :)

|Mini Hot Air Balloons worth 150 to 200 each|
When we jumped off the bus in Dau, we immediately eyeing to find this miniature hot air balloon. But when we finally saw it, we were disappointed that it is costs 200 for the biggest one. Ay, hindi tuloy kami nakabili. Budgeted lang kami that time eh. (kurips lang talaga). Next time nalang Badet, bili tayo sampu! hehe.. Natutuwa akong talaga sa miniature na to, very colorful, eh what more of seeing real hot air balloons being inflated up in the air, I bet it'll be more awesome!
