Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Putrajaya

Shah, Rina, Ira and I made a quick visit to the 6th International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2014 this past weekend.

We arrived in Precint 2, Putrajaya around 6pm and were relying on seeing hot air balloons up in the sky to see where the event was held but spotted none. So we followed the crowd instead—turns out the balloons weren't released into the air just yet!

The four of us stayed for a little bit and got to watch a couple of them fly but decided to leave early due to the humidity and crowd (will be going in jeans and a thin top next time).

It was a pretty delightful event I must say. You can choose to stay as long as you want as they have all the necessities prepared: food trucks, tables and chairs, picnic area, portable toilets and prayer area. As long as you don't mind the heat, of course!

I do wish we could have witnessed the release of the Darth Vader hot air balloon. Or at the very least, face it up front!

Here are some other photos my camera captured:

I wonder if the next one will still be held in Putrajaya?
