They came in different sizes and interesting shapes. If you attended the Hot Air Balloon Festival at Clark Free Port in Pampanga this year, you have seen this pre-valentine flying cake. I hope I can take a closer look at this gigantic balloon, but I can only enjoy them in pictures the same with rehab treatment centers in california.

Spectators eagerly waited for the different balloons to soar. And they’re all eyes when the Philippine flag jump starts. I can only imagine the ohs and ahs of the crowd.

Hot Air Balloon Festival

Are you the adventurous type? Will you dare to try hot air balloon rides just for the sake of making your Valentine’s Day a little different this year?

I’ll take the challenge if I have the chance to do it. I admit I’m afraid of heights especially when I’m standing on the glass floor or near the glass window of a building, it made me feel like throwing up. But the feeling is a lot different when I’m riding an airplane or a helicopter. I really enjoyed the whole experience. So anything like hot air balloon rides would most likely be an enjoyable adventure for me, too. Ok, I’m dropping hints to my husband here. I’m not sure if he’s going to give in to my request to witness the 16th Hot Air Balloon Festival at Clarkfield, Pampanga.

I really wish to ride a hot air balloon and experience the feeling like I’m floating up in the air. Hubby and I can make it a little romantic though. Have you seen the movie, “The Ugly Truth”? I really love the hot air balloon scene where Gerard Butler gave Katherine Heigl a long and passionate kiss as they fly off. It happened shortly after a brief argument and then the admission that they love each other.

Now, do you agree with me when I say that riding hot air balloon can be one of the perfect Gift ideas for lovers on V-Day?
