Hot air Balloons

     The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. It is part of a class of aircraft known as balloon aircraft. A hot air balloon consists of a bag called the envelope that is capable of containing heated air. Suspended beneath is a gondola or wicker basket.

My ticket in hot air balloon

     Rain... rain… go… away… this was what I wished Friday evening because of the continued raining that week. According to weather forecast in Pampanga it would be cloudy and rainy on Saturday, the day of our plan to watch hot air balloon. We decided to cancel our trip because it’s useless and we don’t want to waste our money and time. Saturday morning one of our friend JC push his trip to Pampanga and he sent his message through FB that he witnessed the hot air balloon and I have doubt with him because in Manila it was cloudy and windy that time hahaha sorry sir JC baka pinagtritripan mo kasi kami. When I saw the others, they’re posting in there social network about the hot air balloon I message them and ask the real status of the weather, they said weather in Pampanga is good. Without hesitation I texted my buddies, because we want to witness the hot air balloon even we’re late at the event. Ma’am Weng fetched us with her car at EDSA Munoz, I think 1:00PM when we left Manila. Unfortunately we encountered heavy traffic on the Expressway because of car collision, I was worried were almost 2hours on the road when we escaped from that heavy traffic.

Kids with their kites

     I saw the kids enjoying and flying their colorful kite, as I watching them I remembered my childhood days in our province because with my playmates we were also make a kite, compete each other who is much better work design and the exciting part is, we are on the roof of our house. I was so amazed with these Paraglider pilots they can control where they want to go or how high they want. For long hours of waiting and its already dark we saw the crew preparing inflating their balloon everyone is excited suddenly they announce that hot air balloon will not fly because it is windy, we were disappointed when we heard that announcement. We took our dinner and we planned what to do next, if we will go home or stay there.  If we will stay there we will sleep at the car for us to watch the hot air balloon fly Sunday morning, because for us it’s useless if we didn't witness the hot air balloon fly, so we decided to stay there.

Sunday Morning

Paraglider with the Philippine Flag

     Sunday we woke up early, when we saw groups of people going to the main entrance, we hurried going there, for us not to be caught by human traffic and Sir Albert brought his groundsheet for us to lie down while waiting to start the event and the others pitch their tents at the audience area. I’m tired and sleepy that time and I have a hangover. But when they play the national anthem I was energized and the paraglider flying around with the Philippine flag, while inflating their hot air balloon everyone was excited and taking their pictures and waiting the balloons to take-off. The commentator giving his trivia about the hot air balloon, the pilot of the hot air balloon cannot control the direction where to go because the hot air balloon depends on the wind direction the pilot can only control the high or low altitude that can fly of the hot air balloon. When I saw skydivers jump on the airplane I remembered my bucketlist wishing that I can experience also that before I die. Hahaha… For me Breitling Jet Team Aerobatic Exhibition was one the best performed because of the breathtaking stunts they do.

Paleo cookbooks are a great source of calories.
What makes the paleo so affective? Things such as
Pop-Tarts didn't exist, and we had some connection issues in downtown New York City, we had a pretty good idea of why and what a diabetic must do.
