Legoland Adventure

I had an adventure before 2012 ended. I went to Malaysia to visit LegoLand.

I just traveled by land. Took the bus (CW3/CW4) at Jurong East Bus Interchange.  The traffic jam was horrible.  The bottleneck was at the Singapore immigration/customs.  After passing through the immigration, I took the same bus going to Malaysia.  Again, traffic was a pain in the neck and almost everyone in the bus were anxious.  I guess, most of us were going to Legoland and trying to catch the 10:30AM bus.  It was already 10:20AM and we were still on the road, caught in a jam just before the Malaysia customs/immigration.

Upon reaching the immigration building, everyone were almost running toward the counters to have their passports stamped.  I was one of them.

I missed the bus.  If I wanted to take the same bus, I have to wait for another 2 hours.  That’ll be a waste of time so I asked around if there’s another bus I could take to Legoland.  Fortunately, there is still one more bus which will be passing by Legoland.  I took it and I was again, faced by another problem.  My Ringgit bills were all in 50’s and I have to pay 2RM only for the bus ride.  I have to pay the exact amount.  At this moment, I felt like I was in that amazing race show.  I have to ask everyone in the bus for a change.  I have to go around the terminal to look for a change as well.  I was running out of time because the bus will be leaving soon. The smallest change I got was in denomination of 10RM notes.  I had no choice.  I paid 10RM for a supposedly 2RM bus fare.  Goodbye 8RM.

Finally, I reached LegoLand. I was starving but I just have to take that first photo at the entrance before looking for a place to eat.

I used my iPhone 4 to take the photos.  I have a lot more photos to share but it’ll be like leaving you with nothing to look for if I posted them all.

The place is amazing!  Kids will surely enjoy most of the activities here.

Special thanks to S.  🙂
