February is near and so is Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark Field, Pampanga! Since I’ve learned about this event, I wished to witness the balloons flying high all together and take a lot of photos. Hmmm my birthday this year will fall on Saturday, February 12… I would love to go there even without company though I am not that confident to commute from Manila to the site alone.

“Commuter Bus service terminal is located at the SM Megamall Bldg A from Manila to Clark. Schedule trip is 7:00am and 12:00pm.” via travel.ph. But 7:00am leaving time is too behind schedule of the event. Waaa but I really want to go there… hay… hmm I hope that our photography club is interested to be there too hehehe so I could go with them, yey!



So here’s the tentative 2011 Hot Air Balloon schedule and site plan via clarksubicmarketing.com
