Legoland Malaysia 5th Anniversary

Sponsored Review

If you are looking for a nearby theme park out of Singapore, then Legoland Malaysia has to be your choice. Legoland Malaysia celebrates its 5th brick-versary this September. With this special celebration, we were blessed to have 2 sets of combo tickets (entry to both Legoland & Water themepark).

From the JB checkpoint, we took a 15mins Grab ride to our destination and the cost was only M$24/car.

Besides bringing the family, we were able to invite 4 close friends to join us. The girls had so much fun as the different gor-gors and jie-jies took turns to entertain them.

Due to the raining forecast that day, we have decided to spend the afternoon sun in the Water theme park first. Changed into out swim/beach wear, we are ready to conquer the rides. By that I mean the younger ones. I have the perfect reason (recovering eye) to be excused.

First ride of the day was this huge Red Rush ride. As the timid girls from the start, only Kless and the 4 friends (Calista, Celine, Andrew, Noel) went for it.

This ride is perfect the family with a maximum of 6 person at one go. Minimum height is 102cm.

Eventually, the timid ones took the plunge too, and mind you.. we did it twice! (can you see Jayne’s dramatic scared look, so wayang).

As the Kuan family relaxed at the Wave Pool (sadly there wasn’t any waves leh), the 4 other friends tried out all the other rides – Brick Blaster, Slide Racers, Tidal Tube, Twin Chaser, etc.

Surprisingly, the 2 boys (Andrew & Noel) had some fun at the kids’ water playground (Joker Soaker) too. They were splashing kids with the waterguns, running under the huge pail to be to be splashed by the giant 300-gallon bucket. I think they have re-discovered their childhood-ness in that place.

It was soaking fun for all of us!

After we bathed, it was almost 5pm. And we still have 2 more hours to visit Legoland before it closes at 7pm. Though we were all tired from the water fun earlier, thankfully the weather was good and we had a nice walk inside the park and enjoyed the spectacular LEGO displays.

Happy 5th birthday LEGOLAND!

One of the section in the park that always wow me is the Miniland.

For the special 5th Brick-versary, there is a new addition in the Park. The LEGO Star Wars Miniland. This is a must visit for all the Star Wars fans! I’ve never watched a single Star Wars movie, but I am very impressed by the size of the displays and the detail thoughts given to prepare the new Miniland attraction.

Gardens by the Bay - Autumn Harvest

Took an early train ride to Gardens (Bayfront MRT Station). And recently this is what I will see on the train when traveling with the family. Heads down, totally engrossed in their private world of mobile games/ shows. I guess that is the world we live in today. Singapore has been voted as one of the top smartphone market per capita. We contributed our fair share.

Happening from Sep 1 – Oct 29, Gardens by the Bay has set up The Season of Abundance Autumn Harvest. A lavish flower field saturated in rich hues of orange, red, gold and green.

At first sight, you won’t be alone if you are wondering did Halloween arrived early. I was pleasantly shocked by the numerous pumpkins all around the place. Will the place be transformed into a big Halloween Night surprise on the very last night of Oct 29? I would certainly hope so.

2017-09-04 14.24.55 2017-09-04 14.31.49

Got to know that one of our friend’s company actually did all the pumpkins and vegetable props. Should I ask for some to keep in the new house? Maybe a Halloween corner? Idea? Nice?

We have been to the Flower Dome for many times (thanks to various blessings), but strangely this is the first time I paid more attention to some of the sculptures in the Dome than before. And some of them are really nice.

First we have the Alice in Wonderland series.
