Hot Air Balloons

During the weekend, we went to the administrative city of Putrajaya for a walkie.

The early morning sky was filled with big colorful hot air balloons...

... as the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta was held at the city.

I saw all kinds of balloons floating above buildings...

... and some were heading toward our path.

I was taking a rest on the pavement...

... when this balloon dropped by for a brief landing.

With a burst of flames from the burner, the balloon head off into the blue sky again.

Then this huge orange floated by...

... hey, I hope the sliced portion did not drop on anyone.

Later, we saw this dark object hovering above...

... slowly approaching toward us...

... for a landing...

... at the open field in front of us.

This was a scary looking hot air balloon.

Cheche said it's the evil Darth Vader from the dark side in Star Wars...

... and I said all the dude needed was a dog to show him some love.

Heh. What a great balloonie day you had, Hero!
Darth Vader looks pretty scary, are you sure you weren't scared?

What amazing things you get to see, Hero! I was going to ask the same as Priscilla. Were you scared when you saw the Darth Vader balloon. I know that we Pei aren't the skittish type but that was really ominous looking.

Hi, Hero!
The International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta sure was awesome!
All those big balloons are beautiful!
Hmmm... well... almost all of them... that Dark Vader looks a little bit scary... and you had it very close to you!
Kisses and hugs

That one balloon looks a little sleepy, possibly stoned. Vader will destroy him.

I love to watch hot air balloons, thanks for sharing these with us!

My favorites are the orange and the Darth Vadar ones as I've never seen anything like them before!

We used to have a River Festival here which was always kicked off by having hot air balloons float in the sky in the very early morning. I would drive to work and see them up over the buildings. I loved it! Sadly, the festival cost more than it brought in so they don't do it anymore.
