It was initially intended that the Family would get to the venue at Putrajaya by 7:30am.

Unfortunately, everyone only woke up at 7:30am!

Rushed there, reaching around 9am… but still missed the show!

There was a whole field of food tents selling local treats, and a few ‘para-flyers’, but the hot air balloon show was over for he morning!

Only one hot air balloon remained – and it was not part of the show!

It was pay-to-ride, and all the tickets were sold out.

The family decided to come back 5 in the afternoon to catch the evening show.

Got there around 5pm and waited a whole hour before they started filling the balloons, 2 at a time.

There were competitors from all over the world, including Japan, Germany, France, Malaysia (of course) etc.

Around 6:30pm balloons took off, but one didn’t make it.

At the end, when the sun was setting, the ‘special’ balloons were filled – Elephant, Nescafe Cup and peacock.

Firing the hot air lit up the balloon, which looked amazing in the dim light – but the balloons didn’t leave the ground, sigh.

Still, the Kids had a great time!

Recently, Jern insists on eating everything on his plate during meals.

After determinately eating ‘clean’ the plate, he would present it to Ama and happily announce that Ama didn’t need to wash it.

Ama made up this ‘game’ to keep the Kids from disturbing Ama from chatting with a friend at the Mall.

It’s ‘Who can raise the balloon the highest?’ – kept them occupied for ½ hour.
