went to this year’s hot air balloon fiesta, and i had to battle hordes of zombies err… the lines were so terrible (as compared to the previous years’) i’d probably get trampled on before my brains get eaten in the event of a zombie apocalypse, hahaha! anyhoo i found a spot near the fence, laid my trusty old lagu blanket and sat there until the program started.

paragliders carried the philippine flag and there was a balloon that’s made to look like our flag (which is owned by an american per the commentators) which is coincidentally the hare balloon for the day and they made that one go up first… i gave it a small salute.

they set off one balloon after another, some i’ve already seen, and some are new, but what stood out to me was the little boy and little girl balloons, it was valentine’s day that day and those balloons were sort of going out on a date, i think. haha.

there were lots of vendors during the fest, there were fast food but i geared towards the sellers that sold, well, home-cooked style-ish.

i settled for good old tocino though and i had the egg removed since i’m not the biggest egg fan but the seller was so kind she gave me vegetables instead. also, this came with the softest rice ever, just the way i like it! i bought sago too.

i roamed around after eating all that rice and there are always still a lot to see… you can get some toys around the bazaars, ogle warplanes, buy souvenirs, evade obstacles… lol. i bought a few stuff for pasalubong and then our tour group headed home by ten am. i had fun yo!

yun lang.

the up fair has been one of the default events i go to every february… and this year i went with maki on the night the ge club (her school club) was hosting the fair and that meant not having to fall in line and suffer through the throngs of zombies.. err i mean students who were all eager to get inside the fence. i also met up with my boss, and i think she was pleased by the easy breezy entrance, the ge club kid who was manning the back gates was super kind.

bought some souvenir shirts from the ge club booth and we got some free glow sticks! huzzah! maki was telling me that for the previous fairs, the club only had booths, but now the kids were doing the hosting.

there were bands all throughout and i liked the performances of gracenote, autotelic, peryodiko, join the club, banda ni kleggy, and up dharma down… too bad, silent sanctuary wasn’t able to perform. on a side note, i got hit by a bouncing premier condom balloon, lelz.

so glad they had trashcans all over because before there’d be heaps of garbage and the area was relatively cleaner than the past fairs… and then i don’t know if it’s just me, but they’d stamped us all up with some kind of strong ink this year, it took several washes before it got completely removed when all it took for the ink before was some damp tissue.

aside from the bands there are always little treasures and fun stuff, i tend to go for tea and there’s always so many new ones at the fair and also, stationery and knickknacks.
