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.
