Up Close & Personal with the Hot Air Balloons

Happy ❤'s Day to everyone! I feel blessed to be given another wonderful opportunity to bond and to celebrate family day Sunday...with a style! ✌  :-D We were able to attend the 16th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2011. We went to the the last day of the much celebrated event and fanfare in Clarkfield Pampanga.

The photos will speak on how the amazing and awesome the event was! :-P
Welcome to the Philippine Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2011!
The Morning Activity started off with the singing of the Philippine National Anthem  with a paragliding exhibition with the Philippine Flag.

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
