Journey to the South

My daughter, Avery, is a huge fan of Lego products. I blame the father to have influence her into liking the bricks, while I would prefer her to play with dolls and dolls.

During the recent holidays, Avery's (or rather DH's) dream was realized - we traveled 600KM to South to visit Legoland in NusaJaya. The journey was exhausting and killing!

One word to describe Legoland: HOT. All my photos below are the proof of what I said.
Sunny #1 Hot and bright until become sesame eyes
  |      

I had to re-apply layers of sunblock lotion to make sure that we are not grilled and overly tanned. Nevertheless, we had fun and enjoyable day under the hot sunny weather~ ♥

    7. My husband and I bought lots of lego for our kids..now that they are grown, I'm still keeping the lego..

    8. Annay is so cleber due to Lego's contribution? No wonder MM is so cleber jugak (or maybe I'm the dumb one here)! Then I must not restrict my girl to play with Lego, but being bimbo is good also wert. Like SK said, next time lil Chi will get free chocolate for lifetime, hah!

      By the way, why Minah Rempinator bought Lego for Zaini on Valentine's Day? Should have wrap herself in a box and pop up naked! Wow~

    2. It rained because annay prayed so hard to Tee Kong (sky god?) but it came a day late :p

      Annay forgot to do the rain dance, am I correct? It will be more effective to dance naked in circles.

    2. I thought the weather was better, wenn. Gloomy and cloudy, no?

  9. Once in a while traveling 600km is OK for the togetherness of family is worth the exhaustion. Whoa the kids are so lucky nowadays with daddy carrying four loads of legoland toys with left and right hand. That would cost an arm and a leg-o.

    1. yeah, i would say kids nowadays are really lucky and blessed!! they have so much interesting things to experience.. but well, maybe of course they also missed those interesting things that we older people had experience last time.. :)

      Delete
    2. I agree with SK. Kids nowadays glue too much to TV and gadgets. They miss out the fun to play outdoor, like cycling and more.

      MM discourages the kids to play with smartphone or tablet. Over-play and they will turn 'un-smart', haha!
      Thus he got them some Lego to enhance their creativity :)

    3. Play games (monitored correctly) can have its benefit also.

      Balance in everything. ^^

      I don't mind Raimie becoming a manga artist or a games developer. :)

  10. OMG hot hot all the way in the South... Better hot than going there during rainy season, cant take much picture in a heavy rain n to play those games also right...

    Owh just look at Lil Chi's Red Dragon plush toy... Soooo cute, just like him... Legoland is awesome, I must go there too soon.. =D

    1. It's a fun family theme park. I can see my hubb enjoyed as much as the kids. As for me, if the weather is kinder to me, it would be more enjoyable. I'm a Puteri Lilin :p

  11. Hot? Eyewwww!!!! Not for me, no, thank you....but if it's for the kids, parents will go through anything just so they will be happy. Been there, done that...and I'm still doing it!
