17th Philippine Int'l Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

I’ve missed the first flights of the hot air balloons in the morning because the bus left Ortigas area around 7am, so my fellow commuters and I arrived 9:30am at the Clark Freeport zone(CFZ) in Pampanga. I didn’t consider to take public transports to the CFZ since I’ve read over the internet that getting a ride from Dau bus station to CFZ is not that easy. I purchased in advance a round-trip bus transfer from Manila plus admission ticket because I don’t want to see myself lining-up with hundreds of people who want to buy tickets. The traffic had been getting heavier as the bus approached the site. People who were excited had to walk the long road to the hot air balloon site.

Below is the list of what I’ve seen during the 17th Hot Air Balloon Festival:
1. Kite Flying/Exhibition
2. Sky Diving
3. Rescue demos
4. Paragliding
5. Ultralight
6. RC Airplanes
7. Auto Drifting
8. Hot Air Balloons
 9. Fireworks Display

SM MOA Eye Wheel

I have finally tried the newest attraction in Mall of Asia. The SM MOA Eye is the tallest and largest ferris wheel in the country. It has 36 gondolas and 6 VIP tinted gondolas that can accommodate 4(minimum) to 6(maximum) persons each. The gondolas are now fully-airconditioned and each has a window grill in case you want to experience to inhale the air from the top.

Gondolas are facing toward Manila Bay. The entire cycle is about 10 minutes long, enough to see the 360-degree view of the entire Metro.  It is best viewed at night. The MOA eye was inspired by the London Eye in England and Singapore flyer in Singapore.

Ticket costs P150.00/person and can only be used during the day of purchase.
