Chinese New Year Celebration!

Posted February 10th, 2010 by admin and filed in Hot Air Balloon History

In 1782, the French Montgolfier brothers who were in the paper business, went to China to learn about the paper industry. To their amazement, the brothers saw paper lanterns flying in the sky. Inspired by what they saw, they went back to France, experimented with much bigger sized lanterns. The brothers created the first ever hotairballoon and successfully flew with humans in November 21, 1973.

When I first learnt about this, I was very proud that the inspiration of hotairballoon came from my roots in China decades ago. The next few days, Chinese descendants all over the world will be celebrating The Lunar New Year, welcoming the Year of the Tiger.

The SkyEvents Team wishes everyone “Overflowing Abundance in The Year of the Tiger!”


Drive Safe & Happy Holidays!

P/S: Together with the Chinese New Year celebration, we have specially arranged 2 hotairballoon workshops on 20th & 21st February.

Why Hot Air Balloon?

This is the start of the 3rd year of hotairballooning for me, and until now many people still ask me “How did you get into this business?”

That’s a good question, because I have always been an indoor person, until I was introduced to hotairballooning by FJ (who later become my business partner) in 2006. As I get more involved, I fell madly in love with the magnificent balloon. One of my personal goal this year is to obtain my hotairballoon pilot license.

My hot inflation

As a company we are based in Kuala Lumpur, however we find ourselves all over Malaysia (and occasionally the world) flying Balloons for many reasons, mostly work, sometimes sport and occasionally just for fun. I am truly enjoying that my work brings me the chance to travel to many places.

The adventure, the excitement and the challenges we experience when flying are the motivations for all of us as individuals. What motivates us as a company is sharing these adventures and experiences as often as we can – making many people’s dreams come true, dreams many never thought could be fulfilled. Seeing happy faces after coming hotairballooning with us gives me the most satisfaction!

Keep Dreaming & Dreams Do Come True!  


If you ever wonder about hotairballooning as a sport, join us at the upcoming hotairballoon workshop on either 6th or 7th February 2010.
