2nd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

I woke up very early in a morning to attend the annual hot air balloon event which was held in Putrajaya for few days. The said event was the 2nd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta held from 18th March to 21st March 2010. This is an annual event with participation of local and international Hot Air Balloon pilots from Japan, Switzerland, USA, Belgium, New Zealand, France, the Netherlands etc. Experience and photographs taken during the fiesta are proudly posted in their respective websites and blogs that would indirectly promote Malaysia...

2nd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta...




After met with few friends, we reached the venue at 7:00 AM sharp. And to our suprise, peoples were queuing up already for a 5 minutes ride on the hot air balloon for a price of RM 10, long before the event starts. Me and another friend not interested on the ride, so we proceed to the main take-off area to ake some photos of the setup-ing and take-off-ing of the hot air balloons.

The queue...

Test fire...

The weather during the take off was not really good, overcasted. The photos were also not really that nice. Maybe it's my problem. Anyway, followings are some of the photos taken during the event. Hope you enjoy it... :D
