Streetfighters & Int'nl Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2009 @ Putrajaya

I love hectic weekends.

Coz when your engine's on during weekends, it takes less energy to start it up again for Monday. The bad thing is you wonder where the weekend's gone to when it's already over.

So, I decided that I don't wanna do anything on this Sunday. As in, no outing, just stay home, chill, surf / do work etc. Just be a bleddy pig xD

What happened last weekend? 

 

I slept 2 hours on Sunday morning to catch the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Putrajaya early in the morning! *excited like kampung boy*

There was supposed to be at least 10 of us at the event but so so sad to say most couldn't make it. You know lah, Sat night..people could have been partying and getting themselves hammered..or 'Sunburst'ing..or don't feel like getting up on a Sunday morning..ish. What. I slept 2 hours ok you guys :P

 

Next time lah ok. Kita naik belon bersama sama xD

 

And here's the Hensem and Lenglui smangat people who decided to go for it:

Quite the rush that morning that I forgot to shave again as you can see. From L2R Psychkin, EVo, Wei Luen, Ellie Missycheerio, EGo!

Getting to Putrajaya was one thing, finding the ballooning area was another. It's not that you can see them floating from far like fireworks, coz they're all limp and erm, flaccid before inflating haha.

But we fooooound it! I got soo excited when we saw the balloons lying all over the ground ready to be blown!

This guy excited until air liur meleleh ahahahahaha.

Jeng jeng jeng!

I'm quite paiseh to say that I've never been to a hot air balloon show except for the one at Bangsar Village last year that rose for 10 minutes after 2391824137198237 attempts and flew across the roof and terkoyak so everyone had to pack up and go home.

So quite naturally, we went crazy and started snapping all over!

There were orange and 'ellie'phant design balloons..

Peacock design balloon...

We had a 15 minute window to enter the field from 7.45 to 8.15 to get these close up shots...and if you didn't have a camera you had to stay outside. Happened that Wei Luen brought 2 cams so Psychkin could enter, but he decided to stay outside and shiok sendiri lolx. Thanks Wei Luen.

Balloon_Fiesta09_05Axiao was also there with her sisters..smangat also!

 

We also met Hiew at McD before the event and found out that he was going there too. But couldn't find him amongst all the balloons...it was nice meeting you all the same dude!:)

*Ahem*  *ahem*

 

And what is a blogger outing session without our Gilababi camho series!

Balloon_Fiesta09_31

I particularly like the Nescafe balloon coz it's the same color as our baju that day all red!

Wah so many vertical shots. Must post back some horizontal shots.

Me and the Sista! (I can't help feeling like I look abit like Marcus-my-brother-from-a-different-mother with this facial expression). Of coz more macho lah. Ahaa.

Suddenly the two girls morphed into Cartoon characters. I like this very cute.

The hot-air balloons 'fun-fly', as they call it was over in 45 minutes and we were asked to clear the field. So clever la these people. Drive us to the other side where there was a pesta waiting for us to fall into their trap. Yeah, the Tweety Bird and Mickey Mouse balloons above cost RM5 each. Kena potong man.

Balloon probably costs RM 0.50, so we paid RM4.50 for the gas to fill it up. Pay me RM 4.50 and I'll give you ALLLL the gas you need. With complimentary aroma keke.

OK, other fun stuff!

Balloon_Fiesta09_41

This is a big plastic ball where kids (or adults if you really want to) can get in and run it around the field for 15-20 minutes.

I just call it the Giant Hamster Ball.

Balloon_Fiesta09_42

There was also another activity called the NordBall (I think) that used a similar ball, but a waterproof one. To be played on water.

 

First, you have to package your subject like this.

Balloon_Fiesta09_43 
Notice the little boy in the red shirt. That's our subject.

 

Then you blow up the ball and set him afloat to, hopefully, do a few laps around the lake.

Finding your balance is never easy. It takes time and patience. And lots of floundering.

Balloon_Fiesta09_62 

How can you even call this fun!

And because the ball was completely airtight, the poor boy couldn't hear anything and had no idea that everyone was laughing (and also taking pics of his misery).. so he came out feeling like a hero lolx.

 

So after awhile we got bored of balloons and balls and we went to play video games.

Streetfighter at Putrajaya dun play play yo!

 

Hahahaha. Actually we started with some decent jumpshots.

Balloon_Fiesta09_51

Balloon_Fiesta09_54

 

And even jumpshots became boring so EGo suggested to simulate a fighting-pek-yau scene....soo.....

Balloon_Fiesta09_55

Hahahaha.

So EGo wins the first round and moves to next round. Some kid came in as a new challenger.

Balloon_Fiesta09_58 copy

 

Kid also kantoi!

 

Next challenger also quite geng.

But EGo proves that he's not simple stuff and finishes the game...

I think my story could possibly be better than Streetfighter 4 that's showing now eh.

Finally we decided to go back!
