Get Engaged in a Balloon 🙂 Don’t laugh now, in fact there was somebody who proposed in this Total Balloon — oh boy, that was an awesome proposal. Not sure who it was but maybe some of my readers would know and give some info. My ultimate dream is still to ride in one of these balloons… Someday I’ll do it and share it with you.

UPDATE: Thanks to John Rana of [email protected] for pointing me to the details on the Marriage Proposal in the Air.

After all the balloons left, you can hang around and still see the flying acrobatic show and I’ll show you some pics on what else can you do here. There are a lot of activities for the kids, so this is an ideal Sunday gimmick. Actually after the event, you can decide to go to Zoobic in Subic and that would have been a really great Sunday treat for the family.


Some of the folks who took the chance to ride in the Total Balloon.


Most of the kids fly kites being sold like pancakes in this photo. P60 for the Black Bird, P170 for this orange kite. You can also bring home a hot air balloon souvenir for P150 🙂


Ultralightweights anyone? P1,200 for 15 minutes of flying…


Check out the AFP tanks!


There are a lot of food stalls including this grilled corn station and Aling Lucing who allegedly serves the best sisig in town 🙂


Check out this plane, bro!


Watch for the Parachuters.. Oh how I wish I could have a 100mm lens…


There is an exhibition of these type of planes.


Before we left, there’s still a lot of people entering. Entrance Fee is P100 by the way. You can see a lot of the kites flying above.


We decided to finish our day with a delicious ka-pampangan breakfast at Mequeni Cafe in Holiday Inn, Mimosa. About P500 for the breakfast buffet 🙂
