Donation Bins @ Putrajaya

I notice a white collection bins located at selected bus stops along Precinct 7, 9 and 11 since the beginning of the year.

It is actually a collection bins to accept clothes, shoes, hand bags, belts, linen and soft toy where the sales of those items will be distributed evenly to 3 charity associations; Malaysia Association for the Blind, National Cancer Council and Spastic Children's Association of Selangor and Federal Territory.

It is a well designed and solid donation bins, secured with 2 padlocks to ensure no one would take opportunity of the donation for themselves.

The only thing I don't like is the location of some donation bins which are rather isolated from the highly populated residential area and I wonder if people would actually walk the distance to drop their donation to the bins.

7th Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2015

Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta enters its 7th edition this year and as usual I made it to the site today for the record five years in a row.

As early as 7am, all the balloons are been inflated for take off.

I always enjoy the sight when all the balloons were released. Some of the balloonists skillfully piloted their balloons just above the lake.

The highlight this year is the Vincent Van Gogh balloon which pay homage to the famous Dutch artist. Unfortunately, this balloon was not able to take off this morning.

Other quirky design balloon this year features a penguin shaped balloon wearing Hawaiian clothes.

Humpy Dumpty balloon also made its first appearance here.

The Michelin balloon which never fail to make its appearance here. This balloon is usually dedicated for the tethered ride.

A giant white blimp which I believe belongs to the Perbadanan Putrajaya also made its maiden appearance here.
