DHL Balloon

Last Sunday (8 July 2007) evening, after dropping my wife at Orchard, I took Inka and Irza to Bugis Junction. Our destination was the DHL Balloon, which is within walking distance from Bugis Junction and Bugis MRT station.

The ticket price is S$23 for adult and S$13 for children. Quite expensive for a short 10-minute ride, but it's quite worth for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Inka and Irza previously was a bit afraid when they saw the balloon went up quite high, but I managed to persuade them to try and board the balloon.

It's quite high, indeed, and not recommended for those who are afraid of heights. The view from the balloon on its peak at 150 meters above ground is quite amazing.

More pictures can be found here.

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my http://earnarticle.blogspot.com - ( | earn money articles | A Very Helpful Guide For You to Make Money on the Internet & Earn Cash Online. A Blog Full of Useful Information, Tips & Resources. Now, You Too Can Work at Home & Start Your Own Home Based Business. So, What Are You Waiting For?! Just Keep Reading, then Take Action!),

and plus get some surprise. Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blog. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of blogs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you click on one of my ads : I would feel happy if you did click it, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. That's the whole beauty of it all.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater google at the top of my sidebar page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Open your heart and come along!!!!!

It seems defying the gravity in such a easy way! I heard that in Russia a flight to the space ; I mean feel weightlessness may cost some 5000 bucks ...But this seems a cheaper way to fly ofcourse not that high but still some kind of independency above...I loves to but I really scared of heights right from the childhood days..even riding a rollercoaster seems a bumpy thing for me.( not now by the way)...Anycase thanks for sharing this with us...I loves to whenever I got a chance here in New Jersey...
