While we were excitedly taking the photos of gigantic balloons glowing in the cool, night sky, at 9:05 p.m., without any notification, the fireworks were set off. According to schedule, it should be at 9:45 p.m. So frantically, we have to re-set and re-position the cameras for another colourful event. The re-adjustment is the only fast-paced task amid in this calm, slow motion and serene event of the hot air balloons fiesta.

The green light on the left of photo is the Millennium Monument. It is uniquely shaped like a rocket with etchings denoting important periods and milestones in the nation’s history. At night, the monument serves as a beacon with strong and sweeping lights visible from various locations in Putrajaya.
