Today is just the perfect day for a colorful adventure!Â Itâ€™s Valentineâ€™s day and Chinese New Year at the same time!Â To add up to the flavour,Â The last day of the 15th Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival 2010 happens today!
I drove from the house to Clark while the monkey sleepsâ€¦ (â€˜coz I know itâ€™s harder to drive on our way back home kekeke)â€¦ It took us only about an hour and a half (including Restroom breaks and snacks).Â No traffic at this time!Â We arrived at the grounds at 4:30.Â We got hungry again so we ate at the kiosks aroundâ€¦ The sun wasnâ€™t still up and the whole area is still covered with a black blanket at some glittery stars.
Then, we heard the song â€œ?!?!?â€ — I forgot whatâ€¦ but I liked the song and it kinda signaled that the balloons are being prepared for flight!Â Off we went and take pictures!Â I donâ€™t know how to estimate as to how many people were there but It filled the area!
There was a complete list of activities for the dayâ€¦ but I think, our lack of sleep yesterday made it hard for us to keep going.Â I would have wanted to see the fireworks as well at nightâ€¦ but we figuredâ€¦ we really were getting restless and tired so we decided to go home instead.Â I slept for a few minutesâ€¦ then I heard the monki slapping himself (lol) He was way to SLEEPY!Â We needed to pitstop at a gas station at got our coffees from Gloria Jeans.
They are starting to get ready!Â See the burning flame at my back
