We brought the kids to Legoland last Saturday with the usual gang.. the same 4 families who went on a road trip to Malaysia last Dec..
We couldn’t meet earlier as many of the kids had enrichment and I also had to be in school in the morning…
Mad rush for us as hubby had to pick the kids from Berries before coming to pick me from school.. decided to have a quick lunch at Clementi Mall but it’s a little bit of a challenge to make the kids understand the concept of fast.. they’ll take their own sweet time to savour their food or talk with their mouths full and forget about chewing.. then they’ll argue or fight over every single thing… then just when we thought we could make our way to the car after our lunch, they’ll tell you they need to ‘shhhee shhhee’.. What’s worse is when while sitting on the toilet bowl, they’ll tell you they suddenly have the urge to ‘poo poo’… then as you try to be as patient as possible to encourage them to ‘make their cake’, they’ll tell you: I have no more poo poo!
By then, you’ll just be very glad that you can get out of the washroom! Of cos, that is after you force them to wash their hands after they tell you: I never touch the toilet bowl! (My girl would roll her eyes as she says this.. almost e.v.e.r.y. t.i.m.e!)
Anyway, we finally got the kids into the car and was abt to exit the car park when a foreign car 2 cars ahead of us had problems exiting… It’s seems like delays would definitely occur every time you are late.. and this was not the only incident that occurred that day…
We finally met up with the Tans and the Chews at the petrol kiosk slightly after 3pm..
We soon made our way past the customs quite smoothly as traffic was not that heavy.. until we reached the toll… another car, also 2 cars ahead of us, had problems with his Touch n Go card so we were stuck in that lane for abt 5min and had to keep the rest waiting… really felt bad abt it..
We finally reached the Legoland car park around 3.30pm.. and realised that we had to pay parking fees! And I’ve always taken for granted that parking is free in Malaysia! However, it’s not really expensive as we only had to pay a maximum of RM7 if we park for 4 hours or more.. Don’t think you can find this rate in Singapore.. think RWS and MBS..
It was a super HOT day although the kids didn’t seem to mind.. We took a long walk to the theme park and my boy was holding Ashley’s hand throughout the walk. . So sweet!
All of us tried to fight the heat with shades and brollies.. really super hot!
We first went to a shady spot! The Junior Driving School!
Let's hone our driving skills!
The kids had a great time driving while we adults tried to hide from the sun… it was not very crowded so the kids queued up for the ride again..
Very proud of my princess as she was able to maneuver the car very well on her second try.. much better than the previous time! Hubby predicted that she’ll probably get her driving licence before her brother.. that how much he belittles his son.. tsk tsk tsk..
We then decide to go watch a show, mainly to escape from the heat! We didn’t have to wait long as the kids developed their creativity at Build Test while some of us took our nature breaks before we went to the waiting area to wait for the show which would start at 5.15pm..
While waiting, we were told by Brenda that we were going to watch the latest 4D Movie Xperience show – The Legends of Chima! Look at how cool the kids were!
Where's my boy?
This seems to be the latest craze for the kids although I’ve never heard of it before.. the show was not bad, the skunk was funny, but I’m not sure that I would let my kids watch the cartoon.. haha.. Jovan was on my lap throughout the show as he had cried twice while watching 3D shows… haha.. this time though, he didn’t cry..
After the show, some of the kids queued up to take photos with the Chima lion mascot…
Not all the boys were keen
After the photo taking session, we went up the Observation Tower since there was no queue..
After that, some of the kids went to try out Kids Power Tower in which they had to pull themselves up.. most of them were accompanied by their daddies but my man got lucky when Jocelle was turned away as she was too short.. haha..
We then proceeded to Kingdoms where my kids went for some horseriding fun at Royal Joust..
Jocelle didn’t meet the minimum height requirements but the staff didn’t really check so she actually tried out the ride thrice! They had loads of fun!
I'm tall enough for this ride!
My 3rd time@
After that, the kids spent their remaining energy at The Forestmen’s Hideout while we ladies had a good chitchat..
We made our way out at about 7.30pm and decided to have our dinner at BK as we were sure the kids would fall asleep the moment they sit in their car seats..
It was fun observing how the kids break out and sit with friends of the same gender during dinner.. My 2 kids kept asking if we would visit the theme park again.. I’m sure we will since our annual passes will only expire in September.. we were even discussing about going to USS together! Hopefully, we can have a monthly meet up so we can catch up regularly while the kids can have fun playing with their usual playmates!
I’m already looking forward to the next meet up! 🙂
