From the moment I heard that Legoland was coming to Malaysia, I had waited and waited and waited for it to happen. And finally, it did! Thank you Maybank for inviting us on a trip that I had been dreaming about since forever.
The journey to Johor started with everyone given a 650 pieces Lego set. I was like WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTT???? REALLY???? So happy!
# – Playing with my 650 Lego set!
There was a mini Lego building competition while in the bus. We were given clues and we had to construct the answers out. I was being a little competitive but alas, was slow in every sense of the word :P
# – My honey bee.
# – Lex (of KampungBoyCityGirl) sorting the bricks according to colours. He and partner Chris, won the grand price of an unlimited edition LOTR lego set!
The journey seemed short with Legos as entertainment. Before I noticed, we had already reached Puteri Pacific hotel in the middle of Johor Bahru. We rested well but not without anticipation of visiting Legoland the next day!
# – A picture before sweat & sun overwhelmed me. I was so ziteous, actually still very ziteous right now.
# – Legoland Malaysia!
And then we were there. After a fantastic launch, it was finally opened to the public for the very first time.
# – Very first batch of people entering Legoland Malaysia…historical stuff here.
The first area I headed to was Lego Technic for the roller coaster! Me and Lex were like the 3rd ever public people to get on it! It was awesome!
# – Hard to look good on a roller coaster :P
I had put on 3 layers of sunblock, brought an umbrella and borrowed G’s work shirt as backup. I was terrified of getting tanned to be honest with the wedding looming and all.
From the moment I put on the oversized long sleeved shirt, any semblance of fashion went out of the window. It had kept me quite cool in the sun though, so I was so glad I made the extra effort.
# – Me and Lego giraffe.
# – Don’t fling me bro.
I am happy to report that all my efforts were not wasted, I don’t think I’ve gotten even a teeny weeny shade darker!
We checked out Maybank castle in Lego Kingdom where the biggest roller coaster is, The Dragon. At first I thought it’s only a facade but it’s a real castle okay!
# – Maybank Castle.
Of course, we tried out The Dragon and have a picture to prove it.
# – This was our 2nd time on the ride, coz first time my face was blocked. Pretty good!
Then we checked out the shops….
# – Salt & Pepper shakers.
# – Heads, loads of heads.
# – Bodies.
The reason why the Legos are loose like that is because you could buy them by weight. Then we got on more rides….
# – My boo.
Before I end this post, here’s a little something to screw with your mind:
# – KLCC……….made entirely out of Legos!!!!!!! Looks so real!
There are plenty more of miniature famous landmarks made of Lego but you should go there and check them out for yourself.
