  1. Although sinabi ko last year na hindi nako babalik sa event na to.

    I have to say I missed it.
    Ijust had a bad experience last year, that's all.
    But I think there is a reason why a lot of people flock on to this event

  2. Oh my, why this event is very elusive to me? I wanted to attend this event very bad but unfortunate events keep coming my way.

  3. Last year did not see a lot of hot air balloons because we are late, hehehe, but this year we will make sure we're one of the first people in the area. :)

  4. I was supposed to attend last year's hot air balloon festival. But had to back-out the last minute since I was booked a project. I'm hoping that I get the chance to drop-by, at least this Feb. :)

  9. I love hot air balloons! We have it here in Gallup and in ABQ, NM (international balloon fest) annually.. but nothing beats that schedule! It's really more fun in the Philippines!!!
