The first time in the island of Penang , Hot air balloon fiesta was held in a wide area field at Padang Polo. Throngs of people were there as early as 4.00am to queue up for the tickets.
Flashes and clicks was at work in that early dusky morning. Thanks to a friend who was able buy tickets for us, we were in the first batch. If not, I doubt we would be able to sit in it till evening. Partly because there was numerous complaints about one person is entitled to purchase 4 tickets, the rule was changed to one person per ticket later on.
Just a few pictures in my phone to share.

Although it was just a short while, I'm glad to capture one good overall picture from the top. Especially the monster face.
