2nd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

Posted March 26th, 2010 by admin and filed in Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

Darth Vader, Big Orange, Lion Face and many other balloons floating in the skyline of beautiful Putrajaya landscape.. What a sight..

It has been an incredible time at 2nd Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. Besides bonding with balloonists from 23 countries, trading stories, sharing tips, jokes, Tired as the fiesta crew may be, it was so satisfying to see the expressions of the visitors to the fiesta – pure joy, smiles, amazement, excitement and sometimes sadness when they found out the queue for the rides was too long ..

The weather was super hot in the mornings and unpredictable in the evenings – dark clouds & strong winds. We had to turn down the long queue due to bad weather. The RELA crew told us there is already a queue at 4am in the morning! talk about crazy! All of us felt bad when we couldn’t take the passengers because the crowd waited so long. So when there is good weather, we flew as long as we could..

The crowd at the recent Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta was massive! It was a very successful Fiesta, we salute the Organiser! Well Done! We look forward to the 3rd International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta! More information at http://www.myballoonfiesta.com/

If you missed all the excitement at the Fiesta or to ride on the hot air balloon, no worries! Join us at the Post Fiesta Workshop on 3rd & 4th April.

Why Hot Air Balloon?

Posted January 28th, 2010 by admin and filed in Hot Air Balloon News

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!
