Brick by Boring Brick (Legoland – Johor Bahru Expedition)

“… it’s all about the exposure, the lens, I told her
The angles are all wrong now
She’s ripping wings off of butterflies …” – Paramore

From Kuala Lumpur, we took a plane bound to Johor Bahru via AirAsia with approximately 45-minutes ride (http://www.airasia.com/ph/en/home.page). They do offer seat sales same as that of Cebu Pacific. Costly but it is recommended as compared to a 4-5 hours bus ride or get lost in the interlinked train stations of KL Sental and JB Sentral lol. But if you’re already at KL, it is not advisable to go to Legoland, unless you’ll be heading to Singapore afterwards.

Juvenile Pleasures Part II – – – Young at heart we are to decide that we really have to go here despite the distance from Kuala Lumpur. The park being tailored for kids as the rides are not that life-threatening; well you just have to conquer the dragon and complete the Project X =) Opened on the 15th of September 2012, Legoland Malaysia is claimed to be the first in Asia and to be the first international park in Malaysia. But how did it all begin?!!! The LEGO Group is a privately held company based in Billund, Denmark.  The first Legoland was built next door to the Lego factory that was founded by Ole Kirk Kristiansen in 1949 but it was only in 1968 that Godtfred, Old Kirk’s son, decided to open a 14-acre Legoland Park to promote the toy business. It became an instant success and over the years, 5 other Legolands were built all over the world… and that’s the way how the cookie crumbles. haha

I would say that the place is perfect for photo op and for photo enthusiasts. Just imagine a world made of Lego! Ano kayang itsura ng Spaghetti at Pizza?! hmmm…

Ticket prices?!
Better check this site for full details: http://www.legoland.com.my/. What we did was we booked our tickets 3 months before the actual visit.  20% discount or RM28 savings once you book online with a minimum of 7 days in advance. This is recommended as it’ll be less hassle that you don’t have to queue up once you arrive there; you just have go directly to the turnstiles and scan the barcode found in your e-ticket. The discounted price if converted to peso will cost you around PhP1,500 – thrice the price for Enchanted Kingdom. lol But regardless, wondering the time spent building brick by boring brick is already remarkable.
